do you sell powdered iron for lawns? My lawn is iron deficient and new blades are small and very light green in color. My lawn is of the St. Augustine variety.

Pamela,

Most home depots should carry some powdered iron products. However such products don't work for long. A longer term solution is to topdress the lawn with a screened compost about 1/3 inch deep and then aerate as deeply as you can. The iron supplements are fine but you also need to look for a more long term fix. Be careful not to get iron on sidewalks and other masonry as it will stain it a rust color.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
