I normally apply a traditional bag fertilizer to my lawn several times a year with good results. However, I was really excited to try Thrive early in the growing season. I ordered it and have applied it exactly per instructions, but the results have been very disappointing. My lawn (St. Augustine) was not nearly as green and lush as it normally is and I’ve spent quite a bit more in the process. I actually couldn’t tell that any fertilizer product had been applied at all, so I won’t be purchasing it again. Stick to the stuff that you do well; i.e a smart irrigation controller.
