When applying fertilizer, it is important to remember that a uniform distribution is essential. For luxurious lawns that have the rich, green, golf course look, apply Chickity Doo Doo™ every 10-12 weeks of your grass growing season at the rate of 20 lbs. per 1,000 sq. feet for the first seasonal application and 10 lbs. per 1,000 sq. feet for each application thereafter. Set your spreader to 75% open to spread at a rate of 10 lbs. per 1,000 sq. feet of lawn. (Varations in walking speed and spreader brands may require some slight adjustments in your setting.) To apply 20 lbs. per 1,000 sq. feet, we recommend that you set your spreader to 75% open, and make two passes over the area you want to fertilize. For new lawns, apply Chickity Doo Doo™ at a rate of 20 lbs. per 1,000 sq. feet prior to seeding or sodding. Work into the soil to a depth of 1-2 inches. Seed or sod immediately after applying Chickity Doo Doo™. Reapply every 10-12 weeks at a rate of 10 lbs. per 1,000 sq. feet. It is not necessary to water in Chickity Doo Doo™, however, applying water will activate fertilizer and faster results can be achieved.
FLOWERS & VEGETABLE GARDENS
For perennials, apply fertilizer early in the spring and again after plants have bloomed to give plants strength for the following season. Apply 1-2 lbs. per 100 sq. feet to base of plants and rake lightly into soil. For annuals, apply fertilizer at the time of planting at the rate of 2 lbs. per 100 sq. feet of seed bed and work into the soil. When flower buds have formed, reapply at 1-2 lbs. per 100 sq. feet and rake lightly into soil. For other small applications, two cups of Chickity Doo Doo™ equals 1 lb.
For single shrub planting, the amount to use will depend upon the size of the shrub. We recommend mixing one cup of fertilizer into the soil used to fill around the root ball. For new shrub beds, apply fertilizer into the soil at the rate of 2 lbs. per 100 sq. feet and work thoroughly into the soil before planting. For established shrub beds, apply fertilizer around the base of the plant and scratch lightly into the soil using one cup for each plant. This should be done twice a year (early spring and early summer)
