Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very special ingredient to make your lawn awesome! No fertilizer has ever given my lawn the glow that Milorganite has even though it is only 5% nitrogen. One of the benefits is the 4% water soluble iron that's in Milorganite. Another benefit is that it feeds the earthworms and beneficial soil microbes. In my opinion it does this better and improves the soil more than other organic sources because it is made from bio solids. I love Milorganite and will continue to use it. It is pricier here in Connecticut because it is made in Milwaukee which isn't close. Cities and towns close to Milwaukee do pay less for it or get it on sale more often. Still, I've yet to find a substitute for Milwaukee. It can also be used as starter fertilizer for new lawns. It feeds the new grass and helps it spread. Here is a photo of a Kentucky Bluegrass lawn I seeded only 50 days ago. I fed it twice with Milorganite and the lawn is establishing faster than any lawn renovation I've done in the past!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEST LAWN FOOD FOR THE BUCK Best lawn food you can buy for the buck, it will not burn lawn, nice slow release and all natural. It is a big benefit that it is natural and gets your lawn nice and green , I buy dozens of bags and find myself using it 4 treatments a year. I am a younger guy and my older neighbors ask me all the time how I get my lawn so green, I have the nicest lawn on the block! June 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Fertilizer Ever I have been using this fertilizer for a little over a year and can't seem to find anything better than this. It makes my lawn healthy and deep green without burning the grass. The great thing about this product is that its 100% natural which lawns love. I have a new born and soon she will be playing all over the yard so I know this is safe for her and my family. I add this to my lawn during the spring/summer months about every 4-6 weeks just to give the lawn some food. It helps my grass stay deep green and even drought resistant when I go more than 4-5 days without watering it. My neighbors constantly tell me how we have the greenest lawn on the block. And I can't disagree. I just wish they carried this in the Home Depot stores rather than having to order it online and shipped to store. But for the price, I usually order 4 bags ($50 bucks) and it lasts me for close to 10 months. LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff. July 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great value!! This is listed as being for grass, but after doing some research I chose to use this for my vegetable garden, my fruit trees, and my roses. Everything is growing really well and getting huge! The product does smell a bit when spreading, but no more than most outdoor products and the smell does not linger. This was a great buy. One bag was enough for our small garden, all fruit trees, and fourteen rose bushes. Will definitely be buying more of this. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stop looking at other fertilizer My wife and I bought our first house last fall and the lawn was in need of a makeover. My wife has become a "everything organic" kind of person since the birth of our first child 2 years ago. I did countless research on fertilizer (kind of pathetic, ha!) and I kept coming back to this fertilizer after reading reviews from all over the internet and different locations. The area where we bought our house is full of neighbors who have spectacular lawns and landscaping and I see them outside watering, fertilizing, ect on the daily. I applied this fertilizer in early spring (April) and my lawn completely transformed to the best in the neighborhood within a month. My neighbors constantly stop me and ask me what steroids I'm giving my lawn as they have never seen anything so green and lush before. The best part of this fertilizer is it requires virtually no water. It also doesn't matter if you 'over-fertilize' like it does with other fertilizers. I recently applied my second coat of fertilizer today and I plan on doing one more just before winter in October to strengthen the roots for next year. I found myself in home depot buying this fertilizer and looking at other people buying the 'other stuff' and all I could do was shake my head. I wanted to go over to them and tell them to get a grip and buy this stuff! Want to know the bad thing about this fertilizer? Your lawn is going to grow so incredibly fast a few weeks after fertilizing that it will require a weekly mow. Sure it's a pain but it's totally worth the deep dark and full lawn that I now have. Also, be plenty generous with this fertilizer. It doesn't cover as much area as other fertilizers but it's worth the extra $30 out of my pocket 3 times per year. I don't have enough good things to say about this fertilizer. Go buy some! June 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing Fertilizer My wife and I bought our first home last year. I started using this fertilizer at a friend's recommendation and I need to say I'm completely satisfied. The product is cheap compared to other fertilizers, and it does better work than other fertilizers. I'm a young guy (26 y.o.) and my neighbors constantly compliment my lawn (St. Augustine) and ask me what I'm doing to keep it so nice. (Mind you, I water it and mow it adequately as well). I generally apply it every 2 months and usually 3 days later you begin to see the change in the grass. I also use this fertilizer with my trees and shrubs as well as my vegetable garden. All my plants are in good health. The only thing about it is it has a little smell from the organic compound, but its otherwise tolerable. Bottom line, I like this fertilizer and continue to purchase it. It does its job at keeping my grass healthy and well fed while not putting a big hole in my pocket. January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Secret for dark green lawn... I just used it for the first time and Im sold! DARK green and thicker within a few days, supposed to feed longer as well...though I wont wait long to apply again to reach maximum effectiveness. Pretty dramatic for me and much quicker than I anticipated and Ive used other iron products. June 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Works great. The lawn turns a crazy dark green. Worth the extra money. I used to use another popular fertilizer, but never had good results. See the comparison photo of a neighbor who uses a lawn service and my lawn with milorganite. April 30, 2013
