    I discovered this recipe about 7 years ago, while watching A PBS television show with Lawn expert Jeff Baker. I have used this formula several times on my lawn. It gets the lawn greener, and kills the pesty bugs. It is a n inexpensive recipe.. saves alot of noney on the water bill.. Make sure there is no rain in the forecast for 2 days.. Very Important..

      02/08/2012 I'm going ahead and reviewing this so I don't get behind on my reviews. For an affordable lawn treatment this can't be beat. I have a lawn sprayer, and also have a sprinkler system, so following the steps in this recipe were easy to accomplish and the directions are great. Since I started this process about a week ago, I'll come back and post a final review in 7 weeks. Thanks for sharing your lawn treatment! Made for PRMR tag game.

      03/03/11 - Well, we did the first 2 days of application on a 20'x20' square area of our yard. Will wait a few months and report back the comparison. UPDATE: After 2 months, comparing our yard with the treated spot, we can attest that the area does look somewhat greener and healthier. Not a major difference, but it does enhance the yard. I cannot comment on the bugs, as we treated our yard with milky spores last fall for beetles (which works wonders). So if your looking for a recipe to green up your lawn, this is worth a try. Thanks for sharing.
