Yard Mastery Flagship Blend will bring the ultimate green to the lawn while also adding potassium and micronutrients. Formulated specifically for DIYers, FlagShip is your go-to fertilizer, all grass types, designed to get the lawn thicker and greener.
It's 25% slow release nitrogen so it doesn't kick the lawn in the face too hard, but still has plenty of horsepower to tell it, "thicken up now!"
When you apply FlagShip Blend at the suggested 3lbs/1,000 and water it in, you will see results within 6-7 days and the green will last up to 45 days.
Included is 6% potassium which is higher than most other fertilizers on the market. At Yard Mastery we see the results of thousands of soil tests and have noticed that a good percentage of these are indicating low potassium, so you will find that we formulate potassium into most of our custom blends. Potassium helps lawns in times of stress by aiding in water uptake and retention.
FlagShip is also powered by 3% iron which we all know is the secret to the deeper darker blue-green color of any grass type.
All Natural Bio-Nite in Every Bag!
Bio-Nite is a bio-solid filler we add to every bag of FlagShip Blend. Bio-Nite is the same thing as Milorganite but instead of being sourced in Milwaukee, we get it from South Florida and we can tell you, "it smells like a whole lot of success!"
Something about that Florida waste stream is ripe for sure. Good news for you is that smell tells you that the included Bio-Nite is feeding microbes in the soil every time you apply. They love it!
When To Apply FlagShip Blend
Flagship is meant to be the primary growth stimulating fertilizer in our custom line so you want to use it when your turf is in growth mode. For cool season lawns, Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass and Turf Type Tall Fescue, this is going to be all spring and fall.
For warm season lawns, Bermuda, Zoysia, St Augustine, Centipede and Bahia, this would be a good late spring and summer fertilizer, especially if you have a thin lawn and are looking to get more stolon and rhizome growth to fill in.
(Centipede and Bahia - if you use FlagShip we recommend you back it down to 2lbs/1,000 sq ft)
Why Use FlagShip Blend?
- Maximum green growth from 24% nitrogen
- Potassium to help with any stress the lawn may be feeling.
- 3% iron for even more deep blue-green color
- Micronutrients included: Boron, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum and Zinc.
We formulated this fertilizer for DIYers and partnered with Sunniland because they will deliver quality and consistency that will flow well through all spreaders. These are the suggested spreader settings to apply 3lbs/1,000 sq ft:
Don't Be Scared!
Now with all this talk of blasting the lawn and getting it thicker you should have no fear. Remember, 25% of the N is slow release but even with that, if you follow the 3lbs/1,000 rate we recommend, you are only going to be barely kissing the 3/4 lb of nitrogen per 1,000 sq ft standard. That really isn't a lot of N but it is enough to give you a great result.
- 45 lb bag covers 15,000 sq ft
Cool Season Lawns - Bluegrass, Fescue, Ryegrass (Best Application Early/Mid/Late Spring and Fall)
Warm Season Lawns - Bermuda, St Augustine, Zoysia, Centipede, Bahia (Best Application Late Spring and Summer)
Application rate is 3 lbs of product per 1,000 sq ft of lawn area. Apply to a dry lawn, sweep excess off sidewalks and driveways to avoid staining. Application should be watered in within 48 hours with ¼” or rainfall or irrigation.
