DJ Turfcare’s launches new organic-based Lawn Boost to drive lawncare sales this spring Following hot on the heels of the bestselling MO Bacter from DJ Turfcare, the company’s all-new Lawn Boost will help to complement sales of lawncare essentials this coming spring. Complementing the DJ Turfcare product portfolio perfectly, the newly launched organic-based Lawn Boost will provide the ideal feed solution for lawns where moss is not a problem. Like all DJ Turfcare products, Lawn Boost is safe for use around children and pets, giving it mass consumer appeal. For use throughout spring and summer, Lawn Boost will kickstart the lawn following winter and will encourage healthy growth, characterised by a vibrant colour and strong grass plants. Additional benefits also include good drought resistance, whilst the bacteria found in Lawn Boost will convert thatch into nourishing plant feed which lasts for up to 100 days. Each 10kg bag of Lawn Boost will feed a 200m2 lawn, perfect for the average UK garden which currently stands at 160m2. David Jenkins of DJ Turfcare said: “Spring lawn care is not only vital for the garden, but also for retailers as it sparks a key sales period for them, one which can set the tone for the remainder of the gardening season. Our RHS-endorsed MO Bacter product has been a proven seller for many years, and one which retailer’s often remark they can rely upon to drive sales whilst encouraging repeat custom. However, MO Bacter is very focused on delivering results where moss is present, and as such we wanted to provide a similar solution for those lawn owners who are lucky enough to not suffer from moss, the result of this being Lawn Boost. Now retailers have two organic-based products that meet the needs of all lawn owners, both providing peace of mind that they will deliver incredible results.” DJ Turfcare’s market leading product portfolio DJ Turfcare’s wider organic-based product offering includes the bestselling RHS-endorsed MO Bacter, Recovery, Bio-Lime, MO Bacter Instant. Additionally, the portfolio includes the new-for-2020 Autumn Lawn Treatment. All products are supported by quick delivery within five days.
