Zero-Phosphorus Fertilizer for a Cleaner, Greener Environment
Three years ago, Stein Gardens & Gifts took an important step towards protecting our environment by introducing zero-phosphorus fertilizer. Three years later, effective April 1, 2010, Wisconsin lawmakers have followed our lead and implemented legislation requiring all Wisconsin lawn fertilizers to be phosphorus free with very limited exceptions.
Why is this important? In most cases, Wisconsin soil contains sufficient levels of phosphorus to support healthy lawn growth. Because plants will not absorb more phosphorus than needed, the phosphorus runoff from phosphorus-containing fertilizers flows into area lakes, streams, and wetlands, encouraging the growth of harmful algae. This algae growth clouds the water and disrupts the ecosystem by depriving essential aquatic plants of nourishing sunlight.
With a cleaner, greener environment in mind, Stein Gardens & Gifts offers a complete line of environmentally friendly lawn food products. Steinís 4-Step Lawn Food Program is a comprehensive and easy to use lawn care system that promotes lush and healthy lawns. It features four unique seasonal formulas designed to fight crabgrass and weeds, nourish your lawn and strengthen roots to withstand those cold winter months. Each formula is designed for application during a specific time throughout the year and all formulas include Milorganite®, an environmentally friendly, organic nitrogen fertilizer.
Stein Crabgrass Preventer Plus Lawn Food is best applied between March and mid-May and it not only prevents crabgrass, but it also kills young crabgrass up to two weeks after it germinates. Stein Weed Control Plus Lawn Food, featuring a combination of three different weed killers, is best applied between May and June and eliminates dandelions and over 145 other types of broadleaf weeds. Stein Lawn Food is best applied between June and August and will help ensure a green and uniform lawn you can be proud of. And Stein Winterizer, available with or without weed control, is best applied between late-August and November to rebuild those roots for a healthier lawn in spring.
