    Default Recommendation on Lawn Fertilizer

    Can anyone recommend a lawn fertilizer that is pet friendly?

    None of them are really pet friendly. Best thing you can do is to put it down and water it in before letting pets outside.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    This is what I do and I do not use fertilizer with weed killer in it...at least, not where my bullies go.

    Like Todd said, we put it down then water the heck outta of it, and wait a while before taking him out.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I tagged Jamelyn who helped put her parents or inlaws lawn back into good shape when they moved into their new home. Plus i want some advice too....we had one area for business we'd shovel over the winter and the grass is just plain sad there now.

    I signed a contract with a guy to get my yard going this year since I had so much trouble last year with my yard being primarily clay mud. He calls and lets me know when he will be out so I will turn the irrigation system on to wet the fertilizer in and I let chunky on the grass once its dry.

    I picked up some epsom salt for paw soaks today. On the bag it says it can be used as fertilizer. Has anyone ever tried it?

    Epsom Salts has magnesium , and that is good for plants and grass,and seeds. My mother used it in her garden.
