Bio-Pack

I just laid down 1/2 pound of Bio-Pack over my lawn. It says 1/2 pund will do 10,000 sq/ft. I used a miracle grow spray bottle that goes on the ned of a hose and kept walking around. It took well over an hour to spread this over 3,000 sq/ft. I also gave my Woody Ornamentals and Perennials a soil drench with 2 TBS per 1 gallon of water. I will reapply in the spring at the rate 4 TBS per gallon of water in a watering can and just walk around the yard. If I have uneven coverage, no big deal as these little organisms/bacteria/fungi will find their way through the soil and reproduce.

Will you expect to see visible results this fall with that stuff?
Here the soil is still warm but by next week we expect to go below freezing I guess.

Well its been And the waethr is looking good for the next few.

part of the Bio pack is feeding the lawns microbial population. The other part is introducing/adding Myccorhzae, so I guess the answer of if it will work is HEL! YES!

I am unsure of our suppliers name. I work for a Tree co. on the North Shore and we had some in stock.

Why?

I have a large lawn, about 120K, that was just switched to organics. I just started to look into the bio-pak, along w/ all the other organic ways. Is it worth it to put down now or wait until spring?

I would say do both. You cant put oo much of this stuff down.

Once the lawn is established with organics it will be pretty much self sufficient. Making almost all its own N and need little P and K.

Dont forget to mow high too this really helps.

Did you do a soil test yet?

I manage our retail division as well. Let me know if you cant find it and I will get you the 10lbs that you need to put this stuff down.

Soil test is being done. I found a local source, but thanks for the offer. Funny, it was my tree guy today in a conversation of what he was using on root feeding got me the source.Do you use all organic and if so, what brand fert do you use? 90% of this place is cut high and is dense, thick turf now and just looking to make the transition as smooth as possible and mantain the way it looks now. Thanks for any help.

I use all Organic. I havent found ANY organic ferts in my area with the numbers I need. So I have been using Bone Meal, sea Kelp, phosphate,etc all from seperate sources.
