How do I use Epsom salt to green up my lawn?
Hardiness Zone: 8a
By Frankie Bidwell from Plano, TX
Mix 2 tablespoons of Epsom Salt with each gallon of water, then apply it with a garden sprayer. Another method is to sprinkle the Epsom Salt directly on the grass, then water the lawn.
Homemade Lawn Fertilizer Recipe
1 cup Epsom Salts
1 cup Household Ammonia
Watering Can Method: Combine ingredients in a clean jar. Mix 2 tablespoons of the mixture with 2 gallons of water in a watering can, and sprinkle over 150 to 200 square feet of turf.
Hose Sprayer Method: Mix the entire batch with enough water to make a quart of liquid. Pour the liquid into the sprayer. A quart of diluted fertilizer will cover about 2,500 square feet of grass.
Use in moderation! It is a salt after all.
How much is safe to sprinkle on lawn then water? If I do to much, will it do more bad than good? If I sprinkle 2 tbls it won't get on all the grass.
