    Right balance of nutrients for established lawns

    By Nj on 04/17/2020

    Keep your lawn and its roots optimally healthy by maintaining the proper nutrient level of your soil from spring to fall. My lawn stays green with healthy roots that don't cause my lawn to dry in the summer.

    Excellent delivery

    By Joel on 05/15/2020

    I was concerned that shipping a bag of fertlizer would be catastrophic, however the 50 pound bag arrived neatly packaged in a box that had very little shipping wear. I will definitely consider DoMyOwn again next time I need any products that DoMyOwn sells.
