GreenView's Patented 2-step Fertilizer Technology and Weed Control
GreenView Fairway Formula Fertilizers utilize patented time-released nitrogen technology developed for and used by more than 50% of championship golf courses in the United States. Greenview has developed proprietary technology to provide a higher percentage of slow-release nitrogen than other brands. GreenView Fairway Formula Spring Fertilizer has approximately 70% slow-release nitrogen compared to less than 40% found in other brands. As a result the grass remains healthy and green over a longer period of time without the risk of excessive top growth, because the nitrogen releases into the soil at a slower rate. What this means to you, the homeowner, one application of GreenView Fairway Formula Fertilizer in the spring (lasts up to 16 weeks) and one application in the fall (lasts up to 16 weeks) provides a complete annual feeding program for lawns.
Two steps vs. a four step program
GreenView Fairway Formula Spring Fertilizer Weed and Feed with Crabgrass Preventer is a unique product that combines a crabgrass preventer and broadleaf weed control herbicide with the university recommended amount of nitrogen (1 lb/1,000 sq. ft.) in the fertilizer. In addition to killing and controlling over 200 lawn weeds, including dandelions, seventy percent (70%) of the nitrogen in GreenView Fairway Formula Spring Fertilizer is time-released. This means one (1) application of GreenView Fairway Formula Fertilizer with weed control replaces the two (2) spring applications typically found in a 4-step program promoted by other brands.
With the slow release nitrogen in GreenView Fairway Formula Spring Fertilizers, the lawn remains healthy and green over a longer period of time without the risk of excessive top growth, because the nitrogen in Greenview Fairway Formula fertilizers release into the soil at a slower rate.
Universities recommend no nitrogen be applied to cool season grasses in the summer because lawns go dormant due to heat. This is why you can mow less frequently in the summer. If you have a grub or insect problem, a pesticide without fertilizer should be applied after you discover the condition.
GreenView Fairway Formula Fall Fertilizer incorporates 1.5 lbs/1,000 sq. ft. of nitrogen. With 40% of the nitrogen being extended-release (time-released, also slow release), one application of GreenView Fairway Formula Fall Fertilizer provides nutrients to the lawn throughout the fall. These nutrients help to rebuild the grass root system and store energy for a quick spring green-up!
Slow release nitrogen
Why can GreenView Fairway Formula Fertilizers supply 2.5 lbs. of nitrogen in just two applications? GreenView Fairway Formula Fertilizers include slow release nitrogen components that feed the lawn for the full length of each season, spring and fall. Our patented and proprietary nitrogen technologies make this possible. Each of the components work differently and last for different lengths of time. Some release when the soil temperature warms and some release with moisture. By combining them we are able to offer time release feeding from immediately after application for quick greening, with continued feeding into the next 3 months.
GreenView Fairway Formula Fertilizers contain one or more of the following slow release nitrogen products:
State and federal requirements specify how products can be listed on fertilizer bags. Trade names cannot be shown on the label, which can make it difficult and somewhat confusing to read and understand what is in the bag. Learn more on how to read a guaranteed analysis label.
This is a distinct advantage
Unique weed preventer and killer
GreenView Fairway Formula Spring Fertilizer Weed & Feed with Crabgrass Preventer has a unique, weed control formula that combines several weed control solutions into one product that will prevent crabgrass and kills broadleaf weeds (dandelions, etc.). This is a distinct advantage over other brands, since you will only need to make one spring application with GreenView, while other brands will require that you apply one (1) crabgrass preventer to halt crabgrass, and one (1) weed killer to control the broadleaf weeds like dandelions. The timing for other brands means you will make two applications just a few weeks apart. With GreenView Fairway Formula Spring Fertilizer Weed & Feed with Crabgrass Preventer, you make one application in Spring and then relax until Fall.
Note: The special crabgrass preventer used by GreenView can be applied up to 4 weeks later than other crabgrass preventers and produce great results, because it not only prevents crabgrass seeds from germinating, it will also kill young crabgrass plants.
