I diluted the mixture...1 oz. to 2 quarts of water and watered one of the shrubs. I did this once a month, in July, August, and September. After the 1st dose (just before the 2nd dose one month later) I noticed the shrub that had been treated with Natural Yard was larger and bushier. I continued the same dose in August and September and the treated shrub was just bigger, had more branches...looked bushier than the untreated shrub.
The yard looks great where I applied it. I'm not sure whether I see a difference in the 'greenness' between that side and the other...but I don't have the brown patches on the applied side like I do the other side.
I DID use the natural yard and the grass has all recovered and grown in now where the plumbing was back-hoe’d out! Because they turned over the sticky gray clay from deep under the original lawn, I didn't know if it would actually grow. But I used the natural yard and seed and wahlah! I have grass again!!! I'm pretty happy about it.

The area in the lawn that I put it is greener, the soil has more earthworms and is darker than an area adjacent to it which has no Natural Yard product in it. I put it also on a couple of veggie plants, they are doing better than the ones that do not have it, even in this heat we are having. So I would recommend it to anyone to use this product.
The picture of the plants on the porch is the results of the Pothos that I used natural yard on. They were rooted from the same "mother plant" at the same time and potted up at the same time. They get the same amount of sun here on the porch. The one on the top shelf does not get Natural yard added and the one on the left does. The difference is amazing. I never would have believed it had I not seen it with my own eyes.
Well Rick if those investors don't bite, they are idiots because this is some really awesome stuff you have there. I for one would be more than willing to use it in all my garden and lawn areas. The compost pile I put it in is ready to be spread any day now and the other one will take a bit longer. I so pleased with the results and amazed.
From North Carolina:
does this stuff get more powerful the longer it sits?.... LOL!
my original sample.... I was not myself, health=wise, last year, so I didn't get to use my little sample the ways I had intended.... I was stuck with just adding some to pots of flowers... and oh, Lordy, the flowers I got!... my geraniums put on so many flowers I feared for the lives of the plants!!... they HAD to be exhausting themselves!!!.. but NOOOOOOOOO.... they kept it up even in the greenhouse and now, with spring here, they're still chuggin' along!...
anyhoo.... I'm in better shape early this spring, so I thought I'd give it a go and make up my 'magic elixir' for the early bloomers....so it was five gallon buckets, water, fish emulsion, some leftover Miracle Grow for azaleas, and the Natural Yard.... everyone got their goodies... OMG!!!.... this has been one of, if not THE best year ever for the azaleas!!!..... and then, too, since I had the time and energy, I hit the Hydrangeas with the stuff, too.... there's more buds on them now than in the last four years.... I used to be able to brag on my hydras, but in recent years, nope.... either drought, frost or just tired drug them down to where I didn't bother even talking about them anymore..... not THIS year, by gum!!... you'll be sick of me and them before long!!... LOL!!!
now, one more batch of plants got the elixir..... my roses.... and holy SPIT!... you would not beleive what I see out there!!.... well, I'll have to show you, I guess..... prepare for a long load of pictures..... !!!... the most amazing was a rose that I rescued YEARS ago from a compost pile at the nursery where I used to work.... I'd saved it, but it just never flourished.... two years ago, I moved it... still not much change.... a few blooms, but nothing to get thrilled over.... HA!... this year, it and all the others around here are doing a show that's completely unexpected , but relished by this old dirt digger!!.... her name is Tiffany... and she's one of the most perfectly formed beautys I've ever seen!!.... and these are two-hands full blooms!...sorry about the pics... just had to show her off!!!...
now, some would say, it's just because it's her third year in that spot... nope.... can't agree... she had a third year in the other spot that had a beautiful compost filled bed , lots of granulated fert to keep her supplied andmore sun than in this spot!!!.. but she never looked like THAT!... and if it was only her, I might even agree on the three year thing... but it's every rose I treated!!!... I have a Marie Pavie.... usually a few runs of bloom but nothing to really get shook up over... not this year!.... and the miniature pinkie is set to explode... the big one , the Cecile Brunner is totally out of hand, crawling up the neighbor's tree and overtaking the wild rose on the barn!... I'll have to get some pics taken of those ....
so where do you want the azaleas?.... LOL!!!...
what still amazes me is that I still have more left of my sample ....!!!..... Honey, when you get this stuff into production, this gal will be standing there with her hand out ..... holding a bucket to carry home several bottles!!!..... I still wanna try it on my 'grass' out back... it's mostly birdseed and creeping charlie, but it's GREEN!!.. maybe this stuff and a few grass seeds..... hmmmm?... we'll see.....
so, thanks ever so many much's for my sample... just make sure this stuff gets over the border, huh?.... LOL!!....
