ECorganite For Winter Guard Lawn Fertilizer - November 2022
Like I've done the past few years, I attempted to lay out a lawn care (feeding and treatment) schedule this year by listing what I was planning to do to the front and back lawns. This year's schedule was posted in March. So...how did I do?
I'd call it a mixed grade.
I started out with a synthetic weed and feed in March. Good.
I skipped adding lime to the backyard to help treat the wild onions. But, I did, remove a few more emerging clumps. Not so good.
I also skipped insect and grub treatments. Ran out of time. Not good.
And skipped fungicide. Also...not good.
I also skipped 4th of July and Labor day feedings in the backyard.
But, what did I do? I detathed, aerated the backyard. Good.
I also identified and treated Nimblewill in the backyard. Good.
And, most importantly...I overseeded the entire backyard with a blend of Kentucky Blue Grass and Tall Fescue. And, I kick-started that process with a pre-germination of the seed in 5-gallon buckets. Very good.
Which brings me to this past weekend: I applied four bags of E-Corganite organic granular fertilizer to the lawn as a dormant feeding. 1 bag in the front yard. 3 bags in the back. I did this same Winter feeding last year.
Here, below, are a couple of photos - showing the four bags of E-Corganite (from Menards) and the first bag and spreader in our front lawn.
This is the second season that I've used e-Corganite Nitrogen Fertilizer in our lawn - with Spring 2021 being when I introduced it to my process. While the price of Milorganite has gone way up, Menards has kept e-Corganite down near $12 a bag.
#11 on my 2022 to-do list was to continue my progress on the lawn. I skipped a few feedings in back this year - on purpose - because I knew I was going to be doing a renovation back there. I've seen some weeds pop up back there with all the watering I did this Fall, so job one next year is to apply both a pre-emergent early in the season, follow it with both spot spraying and a late-Spring weed-and-feed.
