Lawn Thatch Control | Lawn & Turf Fungus Control
 WHEN PETS MUNCH ON CHEMICALLY TREATED LAWN GRASS THEIR HEALTH IS AT RISK


Synthetic lawn chemicals do not provide essential  nutrients necessary for healthy lawn and turf grass growth. In fact, lawn chemical, including chemical fertilizers, can kill soil biomass, deplete the soil and, as a result, inhibit healthy grass growth. Conversely, organic fertilizers stimulate soil biomass and promote healthy root and grass growth. In addition, organic fertilizers Improve soil porosity, drainage and aeration, reduce compaction and improve the water holding capacity of the soil thereby helping grass resist drought. One estimate indicates that a 5% increase in organic matter quadruples the soils ability to hold and store water.

Controlling weeds is all about soil building. Chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides do nothing to build or improve soil structure. Hard, tight soils with low calcium and/or sulfur, low organic matter and low active biomass (microorganisms) promote weed growth. Loose, healthy soil aids in controlling weeds.

HEALTHY SOIL
Healthy soil is a combination of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi and protozoa, minerals, rock, water, air, organic matter (plant and animal residue), and a variety of insects and worms that carry out a process that continually replenishes the soil and maintains long term soil fertility.
Soil building involves a soil balance approach. Start balancing the soil by using organic fertilizers that contain the constituents necessary for soil building. When soil structure improves, soil health will improve, plant health will improve, weed and pest infestations will decrease and the requirement for herbicides and pesticides will be significantly decrease or eliminated.

GUIDELINES FOR GROWING A HEALTHY, PEST RESISTANT, WEED FREE LAWN
Use a high quality organic fertilizer two to three times per season.
Avoid cutting more than one third of the grass blade in any one mowing.
Use a high quality thatch degrader at least once per season.
Leave law clipping on the lawn - they can provide nutrients to the soil.
Provide the lawn with at least 1 inch of water / week.
  Apply water in early morning before midday.
  Twice a year,  the first cut in the spring and the last cut in the fall, cut to a height of 2 inches. The spring cut is intended to remove winter fungus and the fall cut is intended to prevent or limit the establishment of fungus during the winter. Typically, tall grass is more stress tolerant, has a larger root structure, which increases uptake of water and nutrients and provide shade which limits or prevents weed growth.

WHAT IS CBLC
CBLC is a super concentrated, premium quality organic fertilizer for seasonal lawn and turf grass care. CBLC is formulated with complex carbohydrates, macro and micro nutrients, amino acids, enzymes, proteins, vitamins and minerals. It also contains a variety of natural substances for soil and plant improvement. CBLC is 100% dispersible in water and can be soil or foliar applied throughout the season without causing leaf burn.

SPECIFICATIONS:
Physical state: Liquid
Odor and appearance: Dark brown
Specific gravity (20 deg. C):  7.6
pH:  6.23
Evaporation rate (Water = 1):  10
% Volatile by volume:  7.1
Solubility in water:  99.9%
Boiling point:  89 deg. C
Freezing point:  1 deg. C
Stability:  2 years (Min) under proper storage conditions.
Weight:  11.9 Lbs. / Gal.

CBLC can provide quick results along with sustained color. Typically, two applications per season will maintain most lawns at above average condition. If you desire a very high quality lawn, 3 to 4 applications of CBLC may be required. Typically, lawns that are conditioned with CBLC are thicker, greener, more pest resistant and require less watering than chemically treated lawns.

BENEFITS
Environmentally safe and not harmful to animals, plants & humans.
Improved root development and uniform growth.
Promotes early vigor and improved plant health.
Promotes residual color and density with slow even growth in a wide range of soil types and pH.
Stimulates indigenous soil microbes.
Aids in rooting, improves stress tolerance and disease management.
Suppresses weed growth.
Accelerated maturity.

Provides a balanced carbon to nitrogen ratio for continuous nutrient availability and replacement of organic matter.
Aids in preventing disease associated with numerous fungi.
Ideal for use around sensitive environmental areas i.e. wetlands, streams and lakes.
Enhances the wear and stress tolerance of turf.
Improves tolerance to winter and summer stress conditions.
Provides protection against pathogens that attack germinating seeds and emerging seedlings.
Ideal for use on new turf or during renovation and over seeding.
Easy to use and simple to clean up with water.  

SEASONAL LAWN MAINTENANCE
Generally, by late July, chemically treated lawns have depleted their nutrient reserves and, as a result, begin to develop brown in patches. This can be avoided by using CBLC. In the fall when your lawn is going dormant it requires nutrients to survive the winter. Generally, a proper fall conditioning with CBLC will ensure a green lawn in early spring.

Table 1.  TYPICAL APPLICATION RATES / 1000 SQ. FT.

 LAWN CONDITION 1st Application 2nd Application 3rd Application*
 GOOD  6 - 10 oz.  6 - 10 oz.  6 - 10 oz.
 AVERAGE  10 - 12 oz.  10 - 12 pz.  10 - 12 oz.
 POOR  12 - 20 oz.  12 - 20 oz.  12 - 20 oz.

* Optional

MIXING:
CBLC is highly concentrated and must be diluted in water.
First determine the approximate volume of water you expect to apply per 1000 square feet.
Then, mix the solution based on that volume.
 Example:
A lawn in good condition requires 6 to 10 oz. CBLC per 1000 sq. ft.
Therefore, if you intend to apply 5 gallons water per 1000 sq. ft., you would mix 6 to 10 oz. CBLC per 5 gallons water.

NOTE: Over application can be a benefit - CBLC does not burn grass, flowers, trees etc.  

TYPICAL APPLICATION INTERVAL
1. Apply at initial growth stage - Repeat mid summer or as required.
2. Apply after periods of drought.
3. Apply at end of season to increase resistance to winter kill and limit fungal growth.

APPLICATION NOTE
Increasing application rate and frequency can provide additional benefits. Avoid pesticide applications within 48 hours of applying product. Best applied in the early morning, evening or on a cloudy day. 

APPLICATION METHODS
Apply with a conventional sprayer, hand sprayer, back pack sprayer, garden hose sprayer or through the irrigation system.

NOTE:
Application rates and intervals may vary with environmental conditions, type of soil and grass and results required.

Just wanted to let you know that I think your products are fantastic...I cant believe how healthy all my plants are.  I had a dogwood tree that was pale green and all the leaves were brown on the ends and it just would not grow. I put your product on it and now the leaves are dark green and shiny and it has about 5" of new growth on it already.
 
 Also, I almost took out a rose bush this spring that was really hurting for several years and especially after this past  winter it was almost dead......I put the FVR on it and it came back fast...it now has a ton of new growth and blooms. 
 
I had some sick looking house plants as well that I had for years and now  after putting the FVR on them they are all thriving.
 
Do you have any natural products for lawn pests...such as sod webworms?  They attack my lawn every June and July.  If so please let me know.
 
I told my neighbors about your products and now they are going to try them as well.
 
Thanks
 
John

... you know how long I have been using your product. well I ran out this year and did not put your product on the greens. Now with the draught we have no rain we lost a lot of green area from heat stress and I think a lack of nutrients. I am convinced that this product is very good. please send 2 x 5 gallon pails to this address.

Thanks very much for your quick answer.

Here’s our experience with EcoChem’s CBLC:

In the Fall of 2002 we had fescue turf installed in our front yard in San Diego, California, and had a large, secondary yard hydro seeded. Whether it was due to the quality of the seed, the density, weather or other factors, the hydro seeded area was not taking root.  Because that area was adjacent to the lush turf it looked even worse. We have Labrador retrievers who “graze” on our grass, so we don’t use chemical growth stimulants or fertilizers on anything.  After extensive Internet searches for animal-safe, environmentally friendly options, we discovered EcoChem’s CBLC Lawn & Turf Conditioner.  As a test, we applied it as directed to a 100 square foot patch of unproductive seeded area that adjoined the very healthy turf. In just a few days the test area grew beautiful fescue. Within 2-3 weeks, you couldn’t see any difference between the formerly barren hydro seeded test area and the adjacent, well established, fescue turf. Since that time, we have used CBLC seasonally, for our residence as well as our rental properties, and we swear by it. We get year ‘round compliments on our green and healthy lawns.

Ben and Paula ........., San Diego, California,

Many thanks for all your help, Judy....

I live in the Maritimes temperature Is from 2 low and 18 high.  

Question 1:
Is now a good time to start using CBLC or is it better to wait for more green to show and warmer temperatures ?

Question 2 :
When is it a good time to spead lime, is  early spring ok ?

Thank you for your time
