Revive grass spray is an effective soil conditioner for lawns. Revive works to relieve compacted soil, allow water to better penetrate the soil and make soil nutrients more available for plants to absorb. It is an organic product that is safe to use around children and pets, and it can be used on any species of grass when the grass is actively growing.

You can safely apply the product to your lawn without the risk of burning the grass. It can be used at any time of day and in any temperature range. Mowing is recommended before applying the product and that you use it at the same time or shortly before or after your other lawn fertilizer.

Revive Lawn Spray Instructions

You can get liquid Revive grass spray as a concentrate or a ready-to-use spray. If you are using the concentrate, dilute the product at a rate of 8 ounces of concentrate for every 1 gallon of water. You can do this in a watering can or by using a hose-end sprayer. For treating larger areas with a pressure sprayer, dilute the entire gallon of concentrate in 20 gallons of water.

Then, spray or water your lawn evenly with the diluted product or spray liquid. You can also use the spray as a spot treatment. Water the lawn after application.

Revive also offers dog spot treatment spray that is specifically designed to get rid of the brown spots in the yard from your dog. Shake the bottle well and attach a garden hose to the product container. Turn on the water and spray the brown spots for about 10 to 15 seconds to completely cover the area. Then, remove the bottle from the hose and soak in the product with clean water for another 10 to 20 seconds. If needed, you can reapply the spot treatment every 14 days.

Revive granules offers all of the benefits of the liquid spray. While the granules may be more difficult to apply for some people, especially if you don't own a spreader, they do have the additional benefit of containing dehydrated poultry waste. This formulation means that the granules will slowly release organic fertilizer with no danger of burning your lawn.

Pour Revive granules in your spreader and set the spreader so that it will apply 5 pounds of Revive for every 1,000 square feet of lawn. The specific setting varies depending on the type and brand of spreader you are using. After spreading the granules evenly over your lawn, water the lawn right away.

Tips and Considerations

Reapply Revive liquid or granules every six to eight weeks in the spring and fall. When grass is actively growing in the summer, you can increase applications to every four to six weeks. If you are treating problem spots, you may be able to apply it more often. Check the product label for details.

If you apply Revive to your lawn at the same time as other fertilizers, make sure to check the fertilizer product label. Some fertilizers indicate that you should avoid watering for a period of time. In this case, water in Revive before fertilizing or delay using Revive until you can water the lawn without decreasing the effectiveness of your fertilizer.
