Grow a Healthy, Beautiful Lawn Today!
Feed Your Lawn and Your Soil.

Spring has sprung! It’s now time to start preparing your lawn for the season…and you couldn’t have come to a better place to do that. Jonathan Green is introducing The New American Lawn Plan to all homeowners with lawns. The New American Lawn is a cutting-edge lawn care program that not only feeds the lawn, like every program on the market today, but, unlike all others, FEEDS THE SOIL!

That’s right, the soil. Healthy soil is the foundation for all great plants... and turfgrass is a plant! Your soil must be free of compaction, possess healthy microbial populations, and have the correct pH or your “great lawn” journey will not happen. Think about it. Would you plant your annuals and perennials in a poor quality potting soil? Of course not. So why not ensure that your grass is growing in quality soil, too?”

MAG-I-CAL® | Lawns in Acidic Soil

MAG-I-CAL® | Lawns in Acidic Soil
MAG-I-CAL® for Acidic Soil is a highly soluble form of calcium that helps to rapidly raise your soil’s pH, improving the health of your lawn by releasing trapped nutrients in the soil that feed the grass plants.

Low soil pH causes weeds, moss, and bare spots to grow, while soil pH ranging between 6.0 – 6.8 will re-energize your lawn, increasing microbial activity, boosting your lawn’s color, reducing stress, improving soil texture and aiding in water uptake. Using MAG-I-CAL® will also significantly improve your fertilizer’s effectiveness for a thicker, greener lawn with improved weed control.

MAG-I-CAL® comes in an easy to spread pellet form, can be applied anytime during the growing season, and is safe throughout the yard. MAG-I-CAL® is also concentrated, meaning one bag of MAG-I-CAL® equals up to ten bags of limestone, saving your time, money, and your back!

MAG-I-CAL® is the missing ingredient in your lawn care program that makes everything else work better!

If your pH is below 7.0, apply Mag-I-Cal for lawns in acidic soil:

  • If pH is 6.0 – 6.4, apply MAG-I-CAL once a year
  • If pH is 5.6 – 5.9, apply MAG-I-CAL in the spring and fall
  • If pH is 5.1 – 5.5, apply MAG-I-CAL every other month until pH is above 5.5, then follow above suggestion
  • If pH is 5.0 or below, apply MAG-I-CAL at 1.5 times the regular rate for three consecutive months. Two weeks after the third application, test pH then adjust application schedule accordingly. For Gardens: apply ½ cup per 10 sq. feet

If you don’t have the proper soil pH, say, “Good-bye” to a great-looking lawn! In fact, you can be wasting between 20% and 70% of your lawn fertilizer if your pH is imbalanced. Remember, lawn fertilizers acidify turfgrass every time they are applied. “The New American Lawn” Program BALANCES YOUR SOIL pH to optimize the lawn’s growth!
