New in 2017

New this year are two additional wildflower mixes: Wildflower Pollinator Mix and Wildflower Perennial Mix.

Wildflower Pollinator Mix

For many gardeners, attracting pollinators is becoming an increasing interest. Gardeners are looking to encourage natural pollination, providing a food source for nature’s beautiful pollinators. While all flowers promote pollination, some flowers are a more attractive food source than others. Encap® has developed a new Wildflower Pollinator Mix to make attracting pollinators easier than ever. The mix is a blend specially formulated to attract birds, bees, and butterflies and provide a reliable food source that will keep them coming back to pollinate.

Wildflower Perennial Mix

Cultivating floral displays year after year is even easier with the Wildflower Perennial Mix. This full perennial blend will return each year with displays of Black-Eyed Susans, Purple Coneflowers, Sweet William Pinks, and more.

Wildflowers

As homeowners look for more natural-looking flower beds, wildflowers are becoming an increasingly popular option. Wildflowers provide vibrant floral displays, but give a less “manicured” feel. Hundreds of wildflower varieties exist, allowing for endless combinations. Encap® created a line of wildflower kits for this reason, and has designed each kit with a specific purpose in mind.

Wildflower Butterfly & Hummingbird Mix

Wildflower Butterfly & Hummingbird Mix delivers beautiful displays that are formulated specifically to attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

Pollinator Series
The latest addition to the Encap® line of flower kits is the pollinator series. These kits are specially formulated blends that help to attract and feed pollinators throughout the growing season.

This provides a variety of benefits, both to the pollinators, and to the gardener. First, pollinators provide a constant flurry of activity for garden spectators. Certain plants attract various butterflies, bees, insects, and hummingbirds to the garden, providing a spectacular show of wildlife. Secondly, these pollinators pollinate surrounding plants, helping your existing plants to flourish and reproduce. Lastly, cultivating plants that encourage pollination provides a food source for pollinators, helping to ensure their continuation as a species. This is of particular importance when it comes to honeybees, which have suffered decreased populations as of late, due to a bee pandemic.

Encap® Pollinator flower kits are a sure way to bring pollinators into the garden this season.

How the Flower Kits Work
These All-In-One™ kits make gardening easier than ever. After the last spring frost, simply prepare the soil by raking away any dead grass or debris, sprinkle on the mix, water as needed, and watch the flowers grow. It’s that easy!

Encap: Lawn Repair Made Easy

outlook_e43c_bannerA lush, thick lawn not only adds visual and aesthetic appeal to your home, but it also offers a multitude of unseen benefits as well. A strong turf, with a deep root system, is nature’s best defense against invading weeds, fungus, and grub and insect damage. Cultivating a thick lawn is the best way to prevent unwanted pests and maintain a visually appealing lawn, and fall is the best time to achieve that lawn.

 
While many homeowners and lawn enthusiasts repair their lawns in the spring, mild temperatures, less competition with weeds, and dormant insects make fall the perfect time for seed establishment. Repairing your lawn in fall will give it the best chance at proper establishment and survival.
 
Lawn repair might conjure up images of back-breaking work and long days, but advanced lawn repair products from Encap® make fixing your lawn easier than it’s ever been. Whether you’re looking to repair bare spots, overseed a thin or damaged lawn, or start from scratch with a new lawn, Encap® carries the perfect product to help you create a beautiful lawn.

The Best Lawn Starts with the Best Mulch
 
You might think the key to successful lawn repair is in the quality of the seed, the blend of fertilizer, or the rate at which you spread it, and those are all important contributing factors. But one of the most important aspects to successful lawn repair is in using a quality seed-starting mulch.
 
Applying mulch along with the grass seed helps to protect the seed and prevent it from washing away. It also maintains close contact between the seed and the soil, a vital part of the germination process. Though there are many mulches to choose from, choosing a quality mulch will maximize results and help to ensure successful establishment.
 
Unlike any other mulch of its kind, Encap® Lawn Starter Mulch uses a patented Advanced Soil Technology (AST®) to hold seeds in contact with the soil, preventing them from washing away and promoting successful germination. Once seeds are established, AST® acts as a soil conditioner, creating micro-channels in the soil to allow roots to spread freely, fostering a sturdy, well-developed root system, and helping moisture to get down to the root zone where it’s needed most. Used by professionals for years on sports fields, golf courses, and commercial landscapes, this product has made its way into the retail market to help consumers achieve better results with their lawns. Usable with any type of seed, this mulch takes the guesswork out of watering with its patented Seed Watering TechnologyTM (SWT®), which sparkles when wet. When the sparkle is gone, you know it’s time to water again!

With seed, fertilizer, and mulch all in one product, there’s no need to buy and apply these products separately, cutting your workload and cost substantially – one application and done!

All of the Encap® repair products contain their patented AST® and SWT® technology, giving your lawn the best chance to thrive. Soil is conditioned, nutrients are made available, and you know when to water!

Easy Soil Repair With Encap® Fast Acting™ Gypsum

outlook_e43_bannerGypsum is a natural mineral used as a soil amendment and conditioner for improving overall soil quality. A long-time practice in the agriculture industry, the secret is out on the many benefits gypsum can offer home gardeners and landscape enthusiasts looking to boost their soil’s productivity. This multi-purpose soil amendment provides a variety of soil-saving qualities that improve soil, resulting in more fruitful harvests, healthier plants, and increased production.

 
The Many Benefits of Gypsum
As a soil amendment, gypsum offers a variety of benefits that improve soil structure and overall health, resulting in healthier plants and higher crop yields. Among these benefits:
  • Gypsum Loosens Heavy and Clay Soils
    Gypsum aerates soil by helping soil particles to stick together, creating micro-channels within the soil for nutrients, air, and water to move through. This gathering of particles loosens up even the most compact clay soils and also results in enhanced oxygen penetration, as well as water infiltration and drainage.
  • Gypsum Helps Leach out Harmful Materials
    Because gypsum creates these micro-channels within the soil, harmful materials such as de-icing salts, pet urine, and salt water are able to leach out of the soil more quickly. This is especially valuable in areas where hurricanes or irrigation systems create a salty soil environment. Gypsum will even restore the telltale brown spots along driveways and sidewalks from salt damage.
  • Gypsum Adds Calcium
    For centuries, gypsum has been used effectively as a way to add calcium to soil without altering soil pH. Calcium is essential in helping plants to create vigorous root systems, as well as to take up the nutrients they need from the soil.
  • Gypsum Improves Soil Structure
    The ability of gypsum to improve air and water penetration, in combination with added calcium, ultimately yields a significantly improved soil structure. This not only helps plants to better take in necessary nutrients, but it also allows roots and established seeds to spread and grow more freely.
  • Gypsum Promotes Efficient Water Management
    Compact soils prevent efficient use of water. The enhanced water infiltration and drainage provided by gypsum creates a soil environment that can use water more efficiently, meaning less water needs to be applied, and nutrient runoff is significantly decreased.
Gypsum is easy to use, and can be applied at any time of the year, though a popular time to apply is in spring, in order to correct salt-damaged lawns after the winter. Gypsum is easily applied with any spreader, or even by hand. Gypsum will not burn turf, and is nearly impossible to over apply. Application is encouraged at the beginning of each growing season to ensure that soil is properly conditioned and ready for plants to effectively take up nutrients.
 
Encap Fast Acting Gypsum is the leading gypsum product on the market. Made from the most pure calcium, Encap Fast Acting Gypsum is finely ground to promote fast, enhanced uptake by plants. Its pelletized form allows for fast product break down and long lasting results, without the dust or mess found with the use of traditional gypsum products.
 
In addition, Encap Fast Acting Gypsum is blended with their patented Advanced Soil Technology, which holds calcium in the root zone where it is needed, even after it rains. This means longer lasting results with fewer applications. The gypsum combined with AST improves soil by providing better water and air infiltration, preventing crusting, and improving structure of clay soils.
 
Whether you’re looking to add calcium to your soil, or correct salt-damaged turf, Encap Fast Acting Gypsum is fast, effective, and easy to use.
