Had my soil analyzed and had a slightly high PH. My local extension recommended a higher phosphorus for the first treatment. This did the trick and my turf spread like crazy, very healthy looking. I recommend this fertilizer if you're looking to green up the turf and improve the root system.

My grass looked terrible. Did some research and landed on this one. I can't believe how much better my grass looks. My neighbor even said she was going fire her grass company and order this fertilizer. Super green grass in 2 weeks!! Highly recommend! And the shipping was super fast!
I have empire zoysia and for the last 7 years my goal was to have my lawn look like a well manicured fairway. I used Milorganite to mimic golf course applications but every summer my grass got beat up by the heat and it would thin out. I changed the regimen this spring to Milorganite immediately after dormancy ended and then Anderson on Father's Day. Root growth is amazing as well as deep green color. I added Humic acid On July 4th. WOW lawn is amazing.
