Elixir Gardens® Bumper Crop Lawn Sand | 1kg – 25kg
Lawn Sand is commonly used to control lawn weeds, it is made up from iron sulphate, ammonium sulphate and fine sand. Lawn sand is a trusted remedy for moss overgrowth, but can also be used to harden grass off against disease and acts as a turf tonic offering a rapid green up to turf. You can buy Elixir Gardens® Sulphate of Iron to help to reduce the pH level of soil which in turn encourages finer grass species and helps deter worms from casting. Lawn sand acts as a carrier for the active ingredients iron & ammonium, thus facilitating even application.

Apply evenly at a rate of 68g per/sq. metre (2oz per/sq. yard), either by hand or mechanical applicator, ensuring that the applicator is adjusted to deliver the correct rate. When applying by hand, mark out the area to be treated. Avoid drift on to trees, shrubs and other plants. Apply when the soil is moist, e.g. a dewy morning. Do not apply when rain is imminent, during drought or in freezing conditions.
If rain does not fall within two days of application, water thoroughly. Grass should be cut three days before treatment and not cut for at least four days after. Heavy infestations may require a repeat treatment – if necessary, the second treatment may be given three to four weeks later. Scarify vigorously to remove dead moss.
