Now that spring is getting close and those nasty weeds will be invading your lawn soon, your friends at Fertilome have a few great products that can set your customers lawns up for success this spring and, at the same time, help you beat the big boxes while actually making some great margins and while offering professional products only sold to the true professionals in our industry. That’s right – to you!
VPG Fertilome does not sell to any mass merchants and helps the independents win with great products! On top of their great margins and protection from the price cutting box stores, VPG Fertilome also pays all of its manufacturing profits back to you, the dealers, in the form of a patronage refund if you hit just $5,000 in purchases during the fiscal year.
First up, let’s talk a little about VPG Fertilome’s top selling pre-emergent – Fertilome For All Seasons II Lawn Food plus Crabgrass and Weed Preventer. Fertilome’s All Seasons comes in a 20# bag that covers 5,000 square feet. Yes, 20#’s covers 5,000 square feet!
All Seasons is the best crabgrass and weed preventer on the market today because of its preemergent. Prodiamine is the active ingredient used in this great product. It will prevent all seeds (broadleaf seeds and crabgrass seeds) from germinating for 6-8 months depending on weather conditions. This is the ideal product that takes the timing out of when you should apply preemergents. Most other products have that 3 to 6 week window and your customer base is always trying to do things too early (with some competitors advertising “apply now” too early). Crabgrass wins in the end, and you end up with unhappy homeowners back in your store complaining that what they used did not work – they have weeds everywhere. It’s often not the product itself, but when they put it down.
That is the beauty of using Fertilome’s For All Seasons. You cannot put it down too early! When the temperatures start to warm up and the public gets antsy, know you can sell them a product that will still perform all spring and summer for them and into early fall, still allowing your customers to do that important fall seeding.
Next, let’s talk about another very popular product that is widely used. Fertilome Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Food. Another great product that will prevent crabgrass and weed seeds for up to 4 months using the active ingredient Dimension. Fertilome Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Food is typically the first step of your traditional four step program. VPG Fertilome offers this product in 16# and 32# bags that cover 5,000 and 10,000 square feet, respectively.
Another great selling point of this product, just like all Fertilome fertilizers is the fact VPG Fertilome uses trace elements and micro nutrients still to this day in every bag. You may be asking yourself, what does that mean and how does that help? Your customers will see the difference in their yards, and they will thank you!
Trace elements and micro nutrients are the “vitamins” turf grass and soil are missing, especially in cool season grasses like fescue and bluegrass. In these type of grasses, this nutrient pack will help turf turn shades of green you haven’t seen in a long time, if ever. Fertilome Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer will definitely make a yard look better, stop any new weeds from germinating in spring, with a lot less work involved for your customers just because you sold them a product that works!
