See my post above. My local Home Depot just got in 53 bags, and I ordered 10 bags before they all vanished again, and picked them up. As for Detroit stores, I'm 135 miles North-West of there. No way I'd drive that far with bags of Milorganite in my car, LOL.

I have Scott's spreader. Normally, I set it to 11.5 for the spread. This time I set the dial to 7 to carry the product farther. It still came out dark green.

Sorry to hear about your back.

Yes, best to buy it off schedule.

Milorganite gets the job done right!

We only get to water for 4 hours a week so it's not that we're watering and nobody else is. Seems like Milorganite has a considerable residual effect. I'll be putting on the July 4th application next week. FWIW, I keep several bags on hand and buy it off schedule. Don't know what's in it, don't care what's in it. It works and that's all I care about. I've spent over 50 bucks for a bag full of junk and chemicals that didn't do anything. I can spend a lot less and know it's going to work. Want a green yard and water less, here's the ticket-Milorganite.

Yes, because it organic and provides amazing results.

Milorganite is is the best out there. Deep Greening, thick lawn , leaves busting at the seams. It does get sold out from local stores which only cost 12 bucks and you have to get it online from Amazon from $25+.

Agree!

Have yet to find a bigger bang for the buck product.

I can't find it locally for less than $15-$16 per bag, but for the money, nothing has come close to keeping my lawn so healthy. All it takes around these parts is 3 days of hot, dry, breezy conditions to take a yard from lush to parched. My lawn looks only mildly less green than it did in late May when we were getting a ton of rain. I only need it for 4 months of the year, so it's worth the price for me. Is it weird to say I kind of like the smell? I think it smells sweet, almost like a giant bag of Sweet Tarts or something. There are many products that smell WAY worse..

LOL!


To me, it smells like downwind of an over-flowing septic tank, or outhouse!
