How It Works
Safer® Brand Ringer® Lawn Restore II creates a healthy, green lawn naturally. Each 25 lb bag covers 5,000 sq ft, which is more coverage than many of the other organic fertilizers out there today.
With the fast green-up from Ringer® Lawn Restore II, you’ll start to see results in as little as 3-5 days after application. Plus, this formulation contains no salt-based chemicals so there’s no risk of burning your lawn – even if you should over apply. Since it’s made from natural protein sources, Lawn Restore II slowly releases nutrients into your soil and will continue to feed your lawn for up to 8 weeks.
Ringer® Lawn Restore II nourishes not only your lawn, but also beneficial organisms and microbes that live beneath your soil to create a thick, vigorous lawn that lasts! There’s also no manure, so you won’t have to endure any unpleasant odors when applying.
A Greener Lawn Guaranteed
Within your soil live millions of microbes and organisms that feed your grass the nutrients it needs to grow. The key to a healthy lawn is allowing those beneficial microbes to thrive. Ringer® Lawn Restore II breaks down into the soil to feed those organisms, thus creating an environment for your grass to flourish and lay down deep roots.
Lawns with deep root systems grow in thick and lush, and are less likely to turn brown and die in harsh situations. Nourished soil and healthy roots are the foundation necessary for a fantastic lawn for years to come.
It’s All in the Numbers – NPK
With an NPK analysis of 10-0-6, you know you’re getting the macronutrients that your lawn needs. So what exactly do these numbers mean and why are they important for lawn growth? Below is a simplified breakdown of each one:
10% N=Nitrogen – promotes leaf growth & fast green up
0% P=Phosphorous – supports flower & fruit development
6% K=Potassium – helps deep root development & general plant health
These numbers are all important because they show the percentage of each macronutrient contained in the fertilizer. Higher numbers don’t necessarily mean a better product when comparing the NPK of different fertilizers. What’s important is that the ratio of these macronutrients is properly balanced, and that these nutrients are released into the soil slowly and proportionately.
Nitrogen is imperative for lush, green lawns, so that’s why it’s typically the highest nutrient in a fertilizer’s NPK. Ringer® Lawn Restore II has 10% nitrogen. Potassium is great for promoting strong roots and overall lawn health, and Lawn Restore II has 6%.
The only macronutrient that isn’t present in Ringer® Lawn Restore® II is phosphorous. Phosphorous is actually not necessary for lawns since its main purpose is to promote flowering and fruiting. Grass remains in the vegetative state for its entire life cycle, so there’s no need to promote flowering or fruiting in lawns. There’s also the potential for phosphorous to be pulled out of the soil by heavy watering or rains, and run off into other waterways causing the water to become polluted with toxic algae.
Revitalize Existing Grass and Invigorate New Sod
Whether you want to stimulate young grass, or your existing lawn is in need of some TLC, Ringer® Lawn Restore II has you covered. Lawn Restore II will feed your grass and the microbes within your soil, naturally greening nearly any type of grass in any life stage.
Use on warm or cool season grasses including:
- Kentucky Bluegrass
- Perennial Ryegrass
- St. Augustine grass
- Bermuda grass
- Centipede grass
- Tall Fescue
Synthetic vs. Natural Fertilizers
There are many lawn fertilizers on the market today and we understand that the choice can be confusing. For starters, there are two basic kinds of fertilizers out there – synthetic and natural.
Synthetic fertilizers use chemicals to directly feed the grass and enhance the look of your lawn. However, they often work by treating just the plant, and not the soil it grows in. The result gives it a quick shock of chemicals to provide visible green up and fast growth, but chemical fertilizers neglect the soil and strip it of the valuable nutrients it needs to develop deep root systems. This can potentially kill the beneficial insects and microorganisms who call this soil home, thus often resulting in adverse effects on your lawn over time. Chemical fertilizers also contain salt which can dry out and burn your grass if you should overapply.
Natural fertilizers, like Ringer® Lawn Restore® II, work with your soil to build a healthy foundation for lush, green grass to grow. Natural fertilizers promote deep root growth and feed beneficial microbes and organisms that live below the soil and create a healthy lawn. Strong roots are necessary for the long-term health of your lawn, and over time when using natural fertilizers, you may even have to fertilize less often!
The Benefits of Organic Lawn Care
Choosing to follow an organic regimen in your lawn care program provides many long-lasting benefits for you and your lawn! Organic gardening products break down in the soil naturally, and will leave no lingering residuals in the environment. They also improve overall soil health and won’t pollute nearby waterways if runoff should occur. They even help promote photosynthesis in lawns - nature’s way of turning sunlight into food - by releasing carbon dioxide.
People and pets can roam freely on lawns treated with products approved for organic gardening as they don’t have adverse effects after application. Though it may initially be an investment to begin an organic gardening program, over time you’ll likely have to use these products less often as your lawn and garden becomes healthier and stronger, and is able to fight off many diseases and weeds naturally.

Safe and green
Review RateGreat greenup
Ringer is my secret to making my neighbors "green" with envy. Great product, goes down easy, no smell of sewage like other organic products. Greens up fast if you follow directions. Does not stain my concrete, but I don't let it sit on my concrete long enough to know if it would stain or not. This is all I will use during the spring and summer months.
Review RateJust Fair

Review RateVery happy with results from Lawn Restore.
I am using Lawn Restore in combination with Concern Weed Prevention Plus. I am very pleased with the results. Just started the process last year and am happy to say I am no longer ashamed of my yard. It is lush and green from the Lawn Restore. Still have some weeds but looking much better. I am confident that I will get a good end result with these products. Thank you!

Used Ringer for the first time this spring. Pretty good green up from just one application so far. Shipping was fast and easy... delivered to your door can't beat that! My lawn looks way healthier now after applying Ringer. Will continue to use in the future. Hopefully my yard will continue to regain it's health and stay that way. So far organic is the way to go!
Review RateGreat Results, Nice Smell
Used for the first time this spring in combination with another brand of organic fertilizer. The results have been excellent with no burn spots in the lawn. I also prefer the smell of Ringer compared to the other brand.
Review RateI have been using this for 8 years with outstanding success on a northern NH lawn!
I am a landscape designer and an organic gardener. I live in northern NH and the winters are really hard on my little lawn. I tried every organic lawn care product available without the success I wanted. One day I came across a small garden shop in MA who listened to my lawn woes and brought me to this little display of Ringer Lawn Restore. She told me the owner would not use anything but this product. And neither will I. I have been using this for 8 years with outstanding success. For me it was a miracle. I thought I was going to have to start all over with a new lawn that first year. I used to drive 6 hours to get this every year until I found SAFER. Now I just have to place an order in the spring for my seasonal needs and it is shipped to my door. The product, the price and the customer service are the best.
Review RateBest product on the market
I have been using lawn restore for many years. I have the best lawn in the neighborhood. I have bluegrass which is suseptable to nercrotic ringspot disease. This product is the only product that helped this issue. I will never use commercial chemicals on my yard again.

All About Ringer® Lawn Restore® Fertilizer — How It Works
Here’s How Ringer® Lawn Restore® Fertilizer Works:
Ringer® Lawn Restore slowly releases nitrogen derived from all natural protein sources which feeds your lawn for up to 8 weeks. The nutrients in the lawn restore stimulate the microbes that exist in your lawn, which provides a quick green-up, promotes root development, makes your grass stronger, greener, and more resistant to adverse weather conditions and certain lawn diseases. A more robust lawn is also able to choke out emerging weeds.
Ringer® Lawn Restore is extremely effective on established lawns, while it is also ideal for helping new sod or seed establish root systems. The Ringer® Lawn Restore all natural granules are specially formulated to contain equal proportions of nutrients for uniform feeding of your grass.
You can apply Ringer® Lawn Restore at any time during the growing season. It will not burn your grass like traditional chemical fertilizers.
