How it Works:
With the Safer® Brand Lawn Care Program, you can create a healthy, lush lawn naturally. You will be amazed at the quick green-up from these fertilizers, and you will start to see results in as little as 3-5 days after application. The formulations contain no salt-based chemicals so there’s no risk of burning your lawn – even if you should over apply. There’s also no manure in either product, so you won’t have to endure any unpleasant odors when applying. Furthermore, Ringer® Lawn Restore II nourishes not only your lawn, but also beneficial organisms and microbes that live beneath your soil to create a thick, green lawn that lasts!
With each lawn care program, you have everything you need for an entire season of lawn care in one convenient shipment! One order will cover approximately 4,000 sq ft, so keep in mind how much lawn area you have when ordering.
A Greener Lawn
If you have a problem lawn, then Ringer® Lawn Restore® II is your solution! This microbial fertilizer breaks down in soil to feed beneficial microbes and insects that promote healthy turf growth, thus repairing thin or dying lawns. You will start seeing your lawn green-up in as little as 3-5 days, and this long-lasting solution will continue to work until it’s time for your next application!
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:
N=Nitrogen – Promotes leaf growth & fast green up
P=Phosphorous – Supports flower & fruit development
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. Nitrogen is especially important for lush, green lawns, so that’s why it comes in at the highest number: 10%. Potassium is great for promoting strong roots and overall lawn health, so that’s why ours has 6%.
The only macronutrient that is not present in Ringer® Lawn Restore® II is phosphorous. Phosphorous is actually not necessary for lawns since their 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 start to run off into other waterways, which can cause the water to become polluted with toxic algae.
Get Ahead of Weeds Before They Start
The best way to get rid of weeds in your lawn is to attack them before they begin to emerge! Concern® Weed Prevention Plus® is powered by 100% corn gluten to suffocate and suppress weeds before they begin to grow.
When using a weed pre-emergent, timing and temperature are key. Be sure to apply Weed Prevention Plus® in early spring, so you attack those weeds before they sprout! As a general rule, Weed Prevention Plus® should be applied when crocuses begin to bloom or when forsythia blooms start to drop. This timing will vary depending on different geographical locations and climates. Check to make sure your soil has reached at least 55 degrees F before applying. Use the digital soil thermometer included in this program to test a few areas of your lawn to be sure your soil is at the optimum temperature for full weed control.
The Safer® Brand Lawn Care Program makes it easier than ever to get the lawn you want! Each bag is labeled with a number so you know exactly which one to use during each step of the process. Here is a breakdown of the general application timing when using the complete program:
This application schedule is using a general timeframe that will fit most users. It may be necessary to adjust the schedule to fit your particular location and climate’s needs.
Chemical vs. Ringer® Fertilizers
There are many lawn fertilizers on the market today and we understand that the choice can be confusing.
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 it will need to green up and grow fast. 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 adverse effects on your lawn over time. Chemical fertilizers also contain salt which can dry out and burn your grass if you should over apply.
Ringer® Lawn Restore® II works with your soil to build a healthy foundation for lush, green grass to grow. This fertilizer promotes deep root growth and feeds 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 Ringer® fertilizers, you may even have to fertilize less often!

Review RateBurn my lawn
I've used this a few times and had great results. While cutting the grass this week I noticed that the lawn was burned only where I applied Restore... No other products have been used on this lawn in 6 months. My backyard hasn't had anything applied and no burn marks. No idea on why this burned the lawn, I'd love to continue use this product since I've already bought a years supply. Any input would be appreciated.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDisappointed in Concern Weed Preventer.
I spent several hundred dollars on fertilizer and corn gluten. Fertilizer worked pretty well but the Concern Weed Preventer Plus did not work even though I applied it at suggested soil temperature. Disappointing.
Review RateWork wellI have used this feltilizer for five years after the first season neighbors have been complimenting me on the how good my lawn looks
Review RateRestore.Purchased RESTORE lawn fertilizer and have had excellent results
using the organic product over the major branded name which is not organic.
Have used it two times so far this year and will use my last bag in October.
Review RateEager to start organic Lawn care programI received my product when they said I would but it was missing the magnet that says when to put down each item for a green, organic lawn. So I called their customer service number and the lady said she'd get one out to me as soon as possible. I look forward to having a healthier, organic lawn next year.
