Nature Safe range

There is no doubt that organic gardening is growing in popularity. Where chemical based solutions once dominated, there is now a clear and distinct shift towards a need and want for greener solutions. The obvious driver of this has been the rise of Grow-Your-Own as consumers look to reduce their food miles and take responsibility for the impact their diet has upon the environment. However, a new revolution is taking over – veganism – which is seeing green and organic product rangesbenefiting from exponential growth.

MO Bacter Instant Lawn Tonic

DJ Turfcare confirms new lawn care innovation for 2020 season

Given the climate in this island moss is an ever-present problem for lawns. We can deal it a blow by using products like MO Bacter fertiliser, but moss produces spores which it leaves behind, and these spores can survive summer droughts only to re-infest the lawn during the autumn and can continue to thrive during our warm and wet winters particularly when grass growth is at a standstill. It then suffocates the grass as it tries to establish its self again in the spring. 

DJ Turfcare launched the new product at the recent Glee exhibition (10th – 12th September, NEC Birmingham), and claims it which will help to solve this problem for lawn owners throughout the country. Introducing 100% organic ‘MO Bacter Instant’ - the new generation of the award-winning, RHS endorsed organic lawn fertiliser, Mo Bacter.

Johnsons Lawn Seed Dog Patch Resistance Seeds

A new grass seed mix that has been scientifically proven to resist damage caused by dog urine is being exclusively introduced by Johnsons Lawn Seed.

Tuffgrass with Dog Patch Resistance is a unique new product that has been formulated to banish the problem of yellow patches and dead areas of grass caused by dogs urinating on lawns. By incorporating naturally tolerant grass species, scorched patches in lawns will be consigned to history, without consumers having to change their dog’s diet or behaviour.Even if slight discolouration occasionally occurs, grass will recover.

World-leading grass seed specialist DLF Seeds, the parent company of Johnsons Lawn Seed, carried out 672 tests to simulate the effect of dog urine on individual types of grass. It tested 168 varieties of grass across seven species – trialing each variety with dog urine mixtures in four concentrations. Results showed that certain grasses offer better resistance to dog urine than others, while some did not suffer any detrimental effects.
