Essential-G is Mirimichi Green's newest granular biostimulant formulation. It is a unique blend of soil amending ingredients combined with CarboMatrix™

CarboMatrix™ is activated carbon (biochar) that is inoculated with premium organics. It reduces soil compaction, drives root growth, increases fertility, and improves water absorption. Biochar also decreases nutrient leaching. This helps fertilizer applications feed your grass longer.

Essential-G consists of reclaimed coffee grounds, premium organics, humate, biochar, and silicon. It contains natural, reclaimed waste stream inputs to improve the soil. It increases soil organic material allowing the soil to hold nutrients and moisture. This is a newer and more complete formulation of Lesco Carbon Pro G.

This essential granular soil amendment is ideal for any turf management program.

When to Apply Mirimichi Green Essential-G

Essential-G™ is designed to improve soil microbial activity, water retention and nutrient uptake. It can be applied anytime throughout the year as long as the ground isn't frozen. For cool season lawns, (Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass and Turf Type Tall Fescue), this is going to be spring and fall.

For warm season lawns, (Bermuda, Zoysia, St Augustine, Centipede and Bahia), this is a great late spring through fall addition. The formulation helps improve the soil's ability to provide nutrients to your grass.
