I bought four bags to use when planting my new flowers and veggies this year. It came with a brand (not this clear packaging).
I`m guessing a bag would measure about 16" x 26" x 5". But to keep your car from smelling like manure for a long time I would look for a friend that owns a pickup truck.
Newbe - Yes, I have done this successfully for many years... Please try to break up your existing soil, so it will drain the water deep, and this will be great for your grass seeds when they grow up and put down deep roots for that moisture.. Please remember that the grass seeds need to be sprinkled on top of the soil when it is all finished, and has fertilizer on it, and you only press down a little on all the seeds so that they are just a little ways deep into the existing soil, ok??? I just use the back of a leaf rake to go over the newly seeded lawn, and press down a little as I move it across all the soil.. The seeds do not to be completely or deeply covered in the soil.. They will need to be watered carefully for a few weeks, every day, sometimes, every few hours if they are in the sun a lot and the water dries out.. Once you start this process, you need to stick with it so the seeds have enough moisture to germinate and then put down little roots into the soil where they will go and seek moisture for the rest of their lives.. Good luck !!
Around 20 pounds but the weight varies because of the moisture content
You probably have your lawn in by now but I just saw your question. You need to mow your grass very short first and remove the clippings. Use a dethatching blade to scalp the rest of your lawn and remove any grass that is left. Weedeat around sprinklers or any high grass areas that are left. Make sure all of your sprinklers are working correctly. Now is the time to cover your yard with seed. I like to cover the seed with manure using a spreader designed for the job. Sweep off any seeds or manure back into the yard and turn on the sprinklers. Keep the seeds moist at all times (don't allow them to dry out). My perennial rye grass takes about 5 days to germinate with afternoon temps around 80-90 degrees and lows in the 50-60s.
less than 20 lbs
I understand that works well, I hope its correct as I just did my yard and shrubs and flower bed yesterday watering it well , but I'm going to wait a week or so before planting any bulbs in flower bed, any suggestions would be great!! Right now, next door neighbors are not so happy w/using the steer manure... LOL ..... but when you have little 4 legged family members it's a lot safer alternative than chemicals
5420Reportando, there are 75 bags on a pallet.
Barbara - This is steer manure blend, it will be ok for Lemon trees but a more specific fertilizer for Citrus would be better..
I understand chicken manure is not only more pugnet in smell, but also in nitrogen and other items that can enhance garden beds nicely. Please contact Scotts Earthgro Pros for better information In God We Trust
