Product Spotlight – Jonathan Green

It’s not often we highlight an entire brand as a part of our product spotlight, but this spring we’re excited to share with you the next step in lawn care with Jonathan Green. The Next Step is just that, it’s a cut above your current lawn care and designed to bring your lawn, and your soil, to that next step.

The Jonathan Green seeding program is a 4-step cycle that covers your lawn from Spring to Autumn, supplying your grass and your soil all the nutrients it needs to produce the best-looking lawn in the neighborhood.

Why Lawn AND Soil?

It might be weird to hear so much emphasis on soil, surely having good soil is a no-brainer, right? Well, this isn’t always the case. Other lawn companies have a tendency to either outright ignore or severely undervalue soil health when mixing their fertilizers and other lawn products. Jonathan Green tackles the issues at the roots, starting with a healthy soil which leads to a lush, green lawn.

The Cycle

Early Spring

Crabgrass-Prev-GrnUp Graphic1.cdrEarly spring is the time for Crabgrass Preventer Plus Greenup. This fertilizer feeds the lawn during the spring growing season and prevents crabgrass from popping up and taking your lawn’s much-needed resources.

You should also apply Mag-i-cal calcium fertilizer to balance your soil’s pH at the same time. If you’re not sure about your soil’s pH, then have it tested at your local Koopman Lumber. Just bring us in a cup of soil from your lawn and we’ll check it for you in store and help you find what you need to balance your soil’s pH.

Late Spring

Weed-and-FeedLate spring is the time to stick it to those broadleaf weeds. Dandelions, chickweed, clover, and oxalis stand no chance against the power of Jonathan Green Weed & Feed. Be sure to apply it to a wet lawn. Think, early in the morning when the morning dew still sits on your lawn. Make sure you don’t water your lawn for the next 48 hours afterward for maximum effect!


PrintYour soil is a vertiable biome of microbial life. These microbes can help to break down the “idle” nutrients in the soil, releasing them for the roots of your lawn to absorb and grow. Apply “Love Your Lawn, Love Your Soil” to help with these microbial releases and strengthen the roots of your grass before the weather starts turning cold.


Winter-SurvivalNow is the time to prep your lawn for the brutal winter months. Apply Winter Survival Fall Fertilizer and help strengthen the roots with the nutrients your lawn needs to be ready for a robust spring growth.

If you’re seeding in the fall, apply Winter Survival immediatley after applying the grass seed.
