Like anything, simply try it and determine for yourself, Natures Lawn has over 2,000 customers that rave about it, I only started selling it to clients this year so I only have around 80 to 90 clients to get feed back from, majority of which have used the competition or bought their own products with less than satisfactory results.


One job I have (for my doctor) has produced such obvious results after only 3 treatments that I can only wholeheartedly support the products. without intentional weed control the lawn is almost weed free. and as he says, "it's actually costing me less than my other service, with an obvious improvement".

RichieM, what do you use to spread compost over a lawn? Is there a recommended rate?

I make my own compost but I would certainly run out after one or two customers. Where do you get compost?

Hey Mark,

I make all my own compost as well...well, there is about 10 companies that contribute to the compost pile. We have a local landscape supply yard screen it for us for $15 per yard.

I apply compost to turf at a 1/2 layer. I use a shovel and wheel barrow to make piles and spread with a landscape rake. I do see now that suppliers are making a pellet for that you can spread with a fert spreader. Gonna try that this spring, very interested to see the results.
