12-12-12 Starter Fert: "Starter Fert Fixes Everything!" The perfect balance of macros and micros. 12% Nitrogen (for top growth), Phosphorous (for root growth) and Potassium and Magnesium (for all around support) PLUS micros: chelated iron, water soluble manganese and water soluble zinc. Spiked with all natural bio-nite to increase microbial activity.
0-0-5 AIR-8: This liquid aeration is potassium hydroxide and humic acid. It penetrates hard soils breaking bonds as if moves, creating space. This allows for better water and nutrient penetration as well as rooting.
0-0-1 RGS: This bio-stimulant is packed with hormones from sea kelp that stimulate roots and stolons/rhizomes coupled with chelating humic and fulvic. Sea kelp is an essential bio-stimulant at seeding.
Hydretain: This product makes use of moisture that would otherwise be lost to evaporation, reducing the watering requirements of lawns, landscapes, and gardens up to 50% or more. The most important task when seeding a lawn is proper watering - Hydretain can help by making the water you apply, go further.
