Jonathan Green Veri-Green Starter Lawn Fertilizer for Seeding & Sodding

Jonathan Green

Jonathan Green Veri-Green Starter Lawn Fertilizer for Seeding & Sodding has been specifically designed to grow quicker and thicker grass roots. Healthy grass roots are essential for surviving the harsh summer and winter weather conditions. Give your new lawn the best chance of survival and a quick and successful germination. Our Veri-Green Lawn Food for Seeding and Sodding is rich in phosphorus, a key component in the development of root formation for new grass seedlings. This product also contains humates that enhance the efficiency, availability, and exchange of plant nutrients to and from the soil.

For best results, this starter fertilizer should be applied just after seeding a new lawn or installing sod rolls. We recommend checking local ordinances to determine the appropriate application times and any region-specific restrictions.

  • Rich phosphorus starter formula helps to develop deep grass roots
  • Apply when seeding or sodding to jump-start grass development
  • Fertilizer analysis: 12-18-8
  • Contains humates to get new lawns off to a great start
  • Feeds the lawn for up to 2 months

When to Apply:   

  • Apply the same day as seeding or sodding.
  • The best time to apply is spring, late summer, or early fall depending on the region. 
  • Spread this product a day or two after mowing and when the lawn is dry. 


  • Use a rotary or drop lawn spreader.
  • Check that the spreader opening at the bottom of the hopper is closed.  
  • To select the proper spreader setting see the Spreader Settings section in the accordion below. 
  • Push the lever forward only when ready to spread.
  • Apply fertilizer around the perimeter of the lawn to establish a turning area. Then run the spreader back and forth within the area outlined by your first perimeter application. Always allow an overlap to avoid gaps in coverage.


  • Sweep any excess granules off of hard surfaces and back onto the lawn.
  • Thoroughly irrigate the treated area after application for best results. About 1 ½ inches of water per week is sufficient between rainfall and irrigation, but not to the point of run-off. 
  • Once watered, wait a day to mow the lawn allowing the product time to activate.
