Like an idiot I used Scotts fertilizer Bonus S. Not only does it cause severe lawn damage to the fescue and rye that I used to have, but I used twice as much as I was supposed to. I want to go organic and have a healthy lawn. Can someone please tell me how to straighten this mess out and how do I get started in being organic? :cry:

Ouch :!:

I guess you are now "$ broker." :roll:

Mow low and discard clipping. Do not compost. :!:

Add about 1/2" of a good grade of compost. Lawn area in SqFt x .04 = CuFt required. 1 CuYd = 729 CuFt

Water down weekly with Medina-Plus and add in some liquid molasass. 1-2 Tbs per gallon.

Lightly mulch to hold moisture and keep the soil cool. 8)

When you mow whatever pops up, cut it with a mulching mower and leave the clippings on the lawn.

Others will have more suggestions for you. Check the "lawn" section.

Read the Organic Lawn Care FAQ at the top of the lawns forum and then, if you still have questions, get back to us.
