Essential-G™ Product FAQs

Can this product burn my lawn?

You're unlikely to overdo it with any of the Mirimichi Green soil amendments. They are designed not to burn.

For those that really want to know the maximum they should use:

  • For an established lawn, you should limit turf topdressing applications to about a quarter-inch so you don't smother the grass crowns (the growing points).
  • For seeding on bare ground or in preparation for laying down sod, spreading 1/2" or even more should be no problem.
