Homemade Fertilizer for Grass


Fertilizing your grass without buying a lot of expensive commercial products. Make homemade fertilizer with ammonia and Epsom salt. The nitrogen in the ammonia maintains the green color of the lawn, while the magnesium in the Epsom salt assists in nitrogen absorption as well as chlorophyll production and seed growth. Sulfur in the salt also aids chlorophyll creation. This concentrated mix will cover large areas of grass and stimulate growth.

Step 1

Pour 1 part ammonia and 1 part Epsom salt into a container and shake to mix together.

Step 2

Mix the concentrated fertilizer with water in a spray container. Add 1 gallon of water for every 1 tbsp. of the fertilizer mix.

Step 3

Spray the grass and coat evenly. One gallon of water/fertilizer mix will cover 100 square feet of lawn. Avoid walking on sprayed areas until they have dried.
