Lawn Care Resources (2018)

Lawn care can be intimidating, but it shouldn’t be. Our U-Fix-It shops are well stocked with the tools you need to grow a yard that is the envy of the neighborhood.

What is available?

Consumables

Limestone

Helps balance out the acidity of the soil after a long winter. Limestone is a must for those with pets, as urine can negatively alter the PH of soil.

Limestone will be available for pickup starting 19 April 2018, and should be applied once in the spring, and once in the fall.

Grass Seed

As you can imagine, grass seed is where grass comes from.

Grass seed will be available for pickup starting 1 May 2018, and should be applied once in late spring.

Fertilizer

Fertilizer helps facilitate growth of grass, it’s a delicate balance though as applying too much can kill the grass.

Fertilizer will be available for pickup starting 1 May 2018, and should be applied once in late spring.

Topsoil

Topsoil is used to fill holes in yards.

Update: We expect topsoil will be available for pickup by mid May 2018 at the Elmendorf U-Fix-It only (availability is dependent on the weather, this date could change). It should be applied as needed. Topsoil is not individually bagged- please bring your own container.

Rentals
