The grass in your lawn has different requirements than the trees, shrubs, flowers and veggies in your garden. With that in mind, we specifically designed TurfMAX to work best for all types of grasses.

How It Stacks Up


Established Lawns

  1. Mow lawn before application.
  2. Apply a 1/4” layer of TurfMAX™ on top of entire lawn area. For best results, apply using a compost spreader like the one pictured or a top dresser available at most equipment rental yards.
  3. Broom or rake out any uneven areas.
  4. Water-in thoroughly 3 extra times in the first week to fully dissolve and activate soil treatment then resume regular watering schedule.

New Lawns


  1. Before laying sod, apply a 1/4” layer of TurfMAX™ on top of soil and scratch into the top 1" to 2". Lay sod normally. For best results, apply using a compost spreader like the one pictured or a top dresser available at most equipment rental yards.
  2. Water-in thoroughly 3 extra times in the first week to fully dissolve and activate soil treatment then resume regular watering schedule.

Note: TurfMAX™ can be applied to the top of new sod with the same great results.

Seed & Stolons
  1. After spreading seed/stolons, apply a 1/4” layer of TurfMAX™ over top of seed/stolons. For best results, apply using a compost spreader like the one pictured or a top dresser available at most equipment rental yards.
  2. Water-in thoroughly 3 extra times in the first week to fully dissolve and activate soil treatment then resume regular watering schedule.

For Best Results, Follow These Best Practices:

    Our passion is turning the places you love into the places plants love to grow. With that passion in mind, we set out to create a product that no matter what soil type you have - or even if your thumb isn’t so green - to allow you to grow a beautiful healthy lawn.

    You, the earth, your landscape -let’s not make it complicated. It’s all about working with nature, rejuvenating natural processes and supporting life in our soils. The science may be complex but the concept isn’t. It’s natural. It’s just the way things are supposed to work. That’s why we’ve put the time in behind a microscope and in the field developing products like TurfMAX that really make a difference to you, the environment and your landscape. When your lawn needs a little TLC, this is the place to start.

    Because the ‘circle of life’ in your lawn is complex, we’ve been able to combine ingredients in TurfMAX that address a wide range of issues that may be out of balance and causing problems in the landscape. Here is a little insight on how TurfMAX works:

    • Builds Strong Roots- In most cases, the roots of your lawn will expand 100X-1000X in the first 6-8 weeks after application! In addition, BioLife Complex in TurfMAX contains some amazing microbes called Mycorrhizae that attach to the roots of plants and extend out into the soil to grab water and nutrients and bring it back to the plant root. This type of teamwork between lawn roots and microbes promotes sustainable and healthy growth for the plants in your landscape.
    • Increases Drought Resistance-After TurfMAX expands your lawn’s root system (see above), your lawn has MUCH greater access to water way down deep in the soil and is more efficient at absorbing it. As a result, your lawn will be better prepared to thrive with less water. In fact, we frequently see clients saving as much as 40% water 6-8 weeks after using TurfMAX.
    • Increases Healthy Growth-Slow growing or unhealthy plants usually results from an imbalance in the soil. TurfMAX treats common problems in the soil and creates an environment where lawns love to grow. Whether poor growth is stemming from a pH imbalance, nutrient shortage or weak roots, TurfMAX corrects the soil to help your lawn thrive.
    • Corrects pH-pH is a measure of the relative acidity or alkalinity on a scale from 0 (more acidic) to 14 (more basic). Most plants prefer a pH near the middle at a pH of 7 or neutral. When the pH balance is thrown off, the health of your lawn can severely decline and it will really struggle to stay healthy. TurfMAX corrects pH imbalances within the soil and no matter what the starting point, brings the pH back closer to neutral to keep your lawn growing right.
    • Solves Nutrient Shortage-There are 14 plant nutrients that are essential for plant growth. All plants must have an adequate supply of each of these 14 nutrients to be healthy and grow properly. If one or more of these nutrients are lacking in the soil, plants will get sick and start to decline, even though an adequate amount of other elements are available. TurfMAX includes complete fertilizers and restores trace elements back into the soil. This ensures your lawn a healthy supply of nutrients so plants can grow strong and healthy. BioLife Complex in TurfMAX contains some amazing microbes that digest plant nutrients and turn them into a form plants can absorb and use. Just like the bacteria in your gut helps to digest the food you eat, plants need the same type of help from beneficial bacteria to digest their food in the soil. But, it doesn’t stop there, BioLife Complex also includes microbes that are able to pull plant food out of thin air. That’s right, these amazing microbes grab nitrogen right out of the air and can supply a plant with a whopping 30% of its nitrogen requirements.
    • Increases Insect & Disease Resistance- TurfMAX contains NO chemical pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. Instead, we believe it is much healthier for you and your landscape to fight these pests naturally. Powered with BioLife Complex, millions of microbes team up to help keep pest and disease populations in check.
