Elixir Gardens® Lawn Sand Professional Grass/Paddock Top Dressing + Nitrogen Feed & Moss Treatment

£4.99£17.99

When applied to the lawn the lawn sand ‘settles’ on the broad leaves and fibrous mass of moss and scorches them so they are destroyed. Because grass blades are fine with little horizontal surface area the lawn sand slides off and falls between the grass blades and onto the soil / thatch layer. This means that the grass blades are not scorched by the effects of the lawn sand.
The ammonium sulphate content is a fertiliser that releases a high level of nitrogen. This release of nitrogen will help make your lawn grass greener. Combined with the iron sulphate, which helps eradicate surface moss and weeds, and the fine sand that helps with the even distribution of the chemicals, the spreading of lawn sand can help your lawn and garden grass appear less patchy, and gain a much more even grass coverage
Lawn sand works best when applied to your grass every 4-6 weeks over the late spring and throughout the summer. This regular use allows for surface moss and weeds to be slowly eradicated, and for the production of a healthy lawn. Gardeners should be careful though not to overuse the product
Iron Sulphate (as contained in our lawn sand) is commonly used as a turf hardener; it literally hardens the plant cells off to prevent it from getting disease. The sulphur constituent also slightly acidifies the local grass environment making it less conducive to turf pathogens.
CAUTION – Although necessary on lawns that are prone to weed and moss infestation due to stress such as shade, drought, water logging etc lawn sand should not be thrown at the lawn all the time. A good lawn care programme will help maintain a healthy vigorous lawn that is less susceptible to lawn weeds and moss.
