Hedgehog is very excited to be testing HumicGreen PetiGreen in Bend, Oregon.

If your like us, we love our dogs but hate the way our grass looks after they do their business on it.

We have tried everything from rocks in their water to special treats that are purported to balance their PH and not cause those nasty burn marks in your lawn.

We are thrilled to be testing a 3 step program to improve the health of your lawn!

PetigreenPetiGreen is a liquid soil amendment that gives back to the environment of soil. It not only adds organic material to the soil it improves the environment of the soil and actually promotes true organic activity. This activity starts the moment PetiGreen comes in contact with the soil. For areas that are severely damaged the arduous task the microbes have of rebuilding the soil begins so that you can, given an adequate amount of time, eventually restore your spectacular green lawn.

For lawns that have mild to moderate damage PetiGreen starts building the population of microbes in the soil that will help stop further soil damage. Over time the microbes work to protect grass roots and eventually prevent the formation of new urine spots in your lawn.

We will be taking photos of each treatment to see the progression.

Final Results:  We put nothing on the yard besides Petigreen.  No grass seed, no fertilizer, no lime, no aeration….nothing.  The proof is in the photos.  It works!!  We knew the severe damage spots would need to be over seeded and were waiting to complete the test but they have actually gotten smaller.   Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much since we’ve tried so many things already but both our dogs are not leaving burns spots when urinating in our yard.  I take them to the park in front of our house, they still burn the grass so it is working.

After you do the 3,2,1 go! treatments, you will need to apply 1 oz every 6-8 weeks to keep up on it.  Totally worth it and I’m hooked.  Thank you Petigreen!

Restore Your Lawn with PetiGreen

 

Hedgehog is excited to be testing out Organic Bactifeed.

I will be doing a series of before and after each treatment photos.

We will be treating our front yard 3 times in a 4 week span.

BactifeedIt is an all organic Biological soil conditioner.   By metabolizing organic matter and minerals in your yard, Bactifeed makes more food available to your plants and turf, thereby increasing the fertility of the soil.

Bactifeed soil conditioner reduces the need for watering and increases the uptake of nitrogen resulting in greener plants.

When Bactifeed is used regularly, it will maintain a stable and robust population of microorganisms in your soil.

FAQ and Information about Bactifeed

 

Before applying Bactifeed.  Week 1

 

2nd Bactifeed treatment 3/18/15.  It is greener but is this due to some rain, water when applying Bactifeed, grass coming out of being dormant for winter or the Bactifeed?  Maybe it’s all four!

2nd Bactifeed Treatment

3rd Bactifeed treatment applied on 3/29/15.  No fertilizer or lime down.  But we did de-thatch lawn on 3/26/15.  I will take a couple photos in a few weeks to see difference between front yard with nothing against Bactifeed side of front yard.

3rd bactifeed treatment 3:29:15

**Note – 4/3/15  We are working with Bactifeed to get formulations correct for smaller yards.  Bactifeed was originally designed for large scale farmers and we at Hedgehog need to adjust the quantity we put down.  They have been great to work with and our next testing will start in a few weeks.**

Fertilizer

Here is a very informative and short article from Oregon State Extension office on chemical and organic fertilizers.

Scoop on Chemical and Organic fertilizers

Organic fertilizers have many advantages. They don’t make a crust on the soil as inorganic fertilizers sometimes do. They improve water movement into the soil and, in time, add structure to the soil. Organics feed beneficial microbes, making the soil easier to work.
