How it Works
Luscious Lawn Corn Gluten can be used as a natural means for weed control, while providing nutrients to established plants. Corn gluten meal is a powdery byproduct of the corn milling process used to make corn starch and corn syrup. It is often used in cattle feed and dog food. As a plant food, Luscious Lawn Corn Gluten is 9% nitrogen.
Luscious Lawn Corn Gluten also works as a herbicide (a material used to kill unwanted plants). Natural chemicals called peptides found in corn gluten inhibit root formation at the time of germination. Luscious Lawn Corn Gluten also dries out seeds as soon as they open to sprout.

Why Natural is Better
American consumers spent 35.2 billion dollars on lawn and garden products in 2005. Unfortunately, many of these products contain dangerous chemicals that ultimately do more harm than good. These chemical fertilizers and pesticides are a quick fix that seem effective on the surface, but become ineffective over time and create a dependency on their use. Chemical fertilizers are made from non-renewable resources and petroleum products and leave the land depleted.
A growing number of people are ready to make the switch from chemicals to more natural means of lawn care. Organic gardening uses methods and products from mother-nature and builds a healthy system from beginning to end. Organic gardening is much safer for your whole family, especially children and pets who typically suffer the most from dangerous chemicals. Over time, you will reduce the cost and time required to maintain a beautiful lawn because it is naturally stronger and healthier. Using Luscious Lawn Corn Gluten is better for your land, water, and whole family.
More on Lawn Care
With just a few tips, you can have a naturally healthy lawn that doesn’t require as much of your time and money.
Set your mower to a high setting (about 3 inches). This is crucial for a healthy lawn. Higher grass shades roots and keeps soil moist. Most importantly, it discourages weeds and pests.
Leave grass clippings on the lawn. This returns organic matter and nutrients back to the soil and cuts down on watering needs.
Compost, compost, compost. One third of our landfills consist of kitchen waste and garden clippings, which are perfect for making a rich, natural soil amendment.
Water infrequently and deeply. Grass roots will grow deeper than those of weeds. When the soil is dry the grass will start to curl, this is the best time to water. Cover each square foot of lawn with one inch of water, a half-inch at a time with 90 minutes between watering.
Have your pH professionally tested. Grass loves a pH at about 6.5. Add lime if your pH is below 6, sulfur if it is above 7.
Normal Application: 10 lbs. per 1,000 square feet of lawn, garden, or flowerbed each spring and fall.
