Miracle Gro Liquid Lawn Fertilizer-Review

 

Miracle grow liquid lawn fertilizer is really called Miracle grow lawn food. This is a very old company there owned by The Scott Company you know the huge company that makes the famous granular fertilizers and grass seed.

There easily one of the biggest company in the world of lawn and garden not many come close in that field. Even knowing all of that I was skeptical when I used this product because of the nitrogen content. Just follow direction and make sure you water for 10 to 15 minutes after you put out the fertilizer and you will be fine.I must admit I was pleasantly surprised with the end result..

High Nitrogen Fertilizer

Miracle grow liquid lawn food is a very high nitrogen fertilizer with an analysis N-P-K of 36-0-6.The 36 is for the amount of nitrogen that’s in the bottle.P is for the phosphorus and 6 is for the potassium in the bottle.

It has a little slow release fertilizer in it but there mostly fast release in it. Your grass will green up pretty fast maybe in a few days it will green up and last for a few weeks then you will need some more.

Unlike slow release fertilizer that can be fed every 4 to 6 week or even longer depending how slow release they are.That’s the thing with liquid fertilizer a lot of them fertilizer have to be fed 2 to 4 weeks, but the end result is fantastic.You might be out in your yard more which is good because you will be getting a bunch of exercise which we all love and need lol,but our lawn will love us for it.

Good Stuff                                                                                                                                                                 

Your lawn is ready to eat. Feed it with Miracle-Gro lawn food that made my Best of Liquid Fertilizer List for 2020.

Feed while you water using the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder you should get quick, results,your lawn should start to green within a few days. It’s specifically formulated for turf-grass with high nitrogen and chelated iron;”that’s what get the grass super green” it feeds through both the roots and grass blades. And it’s safe for all turf-grasses won’t burn your lawn or other plants so long as used as directed. Covers up to 4000 square feet per box.

There are two methods for feeding your lawn:

Use the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder one feeder refill packet in the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder will cover 1000 square feet in approximately 12 minutes, or use a watering can. Just mix 1 tablespoon of Miracle-Gro for every gallon of water.

Apply every 2 to 3 weeks any season when grass is growing. So in summer cool season grass basically stop growing so please do not use in beginning summer or fall for warm season that’s when warm season grass stop growing.

I’m pretty impressed with both the dispenser, AND the crystals. When you use the Miracle-Gro Sprayer, you’re going to be putting a lot water out there on about a 1000 ft lawn. The sprayer, in the FAN MODE sprays EXACTLY 3.33 gals per min (did a 2 gal bucket test), which means it will take you exactly 12 minutes to put out that 40 gallons.

Also premixed my 20 oz packet into a separate, 32 oz glass jars and filled that jar up with warm water to it’s 28 oz point. After shaking and stirring, it went into the Miracle-Gro container and dispensed very nicely.

After 12 minutes has elapsed, put the sprayer into the SPRAY mode, hold it upside down (but level) and continue spraying. This will empty the container. This WON’T WORK in the FAN mode. Like I said the N P K of this is 36-0-6, so it’s powerful stuff.

Easy to Use

It is so much easier so fertilize the lawn evenly without burning with Miracle grow liquid Lawn fertilizers. My sword ferns also loved it. This product dissolves easily. I just make a batch in my sprayer and water it in or apply before a light rain and I’m good for 3 or 4 weeks.

You can see the areas that need a little more attention and just spray a bit more. The result is ta great evenly green lawn. Works great on stressed feeble grass, I have turf tall fescue and this makes it green and thick all summer it really surprised me.

Beware

The lawn is doing fine but I had some solution left over so I put it on my plants.DO NOT! It’s been 3 days and so far many of those plants have died and others may be in the process.

I am really sick about what happened to my flower bed in the first 2 photos. Please don’t use this on plants – my coleus is looking rather poorly too. This is a strong fertilizer so you definitely have to be careful just use for your grass unless you use half rate then it will be okay to use on other plants.

Conclusion

I was very Skeptical at first I have used so many products for my lawn and done testing and trial and error. This I could not believe the results. I put it on early spring and all the grass turned a lush nice green healthy lawn.

The rest where I had not put this on was pretty so so. I put this on all the rest of the lawn and it thickened up and turned nice green. I can keep using this, I definitely approve this fertilizer it wasn’t a fluke.I can recommend it for early spring late fall not in late fall or summer it will burn your grass whether you have cool season grass or warm season grass without proper irrigation.

We prefer a little more slow release fertilizer for a sub stain color longer than 3 or 4 weeks. I also like to feed the soil and this fertilizer doesn’t do that well,that’s the advantage of using a organic fertilizer,but I’m not one of those organic manic, there some good chemical fertilizer out on the market and this is one of them.

    Hi! Thanks so much for your review. I’m in the process of purchasing a home and will need to work on my lawn at some point. My worst enemy of lawn fertilizers in general is watering them in. Lol I hope to get to a place where I can enjoy this process instead of thinking of it as a chore. Lol Thanks again- very insightful!
