Frequently Asked Questions
Is Ring to GREEN a dangerous fungicide?
No! Ring to GREEN is not a fungicide. Fungicides only try to kill the fungus, and are not able to kill all of the fungus, and thus have been unsuccessful with lawn fungi. Ring to GREEN is a soil enhancement product that corrects the soil and eliminates the fungus completely. Ring to Green treats the CAUSE of the problem (preventing the fungus), where fungicides are only treating the SYMPTOM (trying to kill the fungus).
How is Ring to GREEN applied to my lawn?
Ring to GREEN can be applied by a professional lawn care company, or a homeowner can apply it themselves. Find the links on this website for “Do It Yourself”, or “Have a Pro Do it?”.
Is Ring to GREEN safe with children and pets?
Yes! Ring to GREEN is not a dangerous fungicide, but is an environmentally friendly product. Once Ring to GREEN is applied to the lawn, and is watered in, it is safe for children and pets to be on the lawn.
How often is Ring to GREEN applied to the lawn?
Ring to GREEN is applied (3) times to the lawn, 30 days in between each application from March 1st to October 31st. We also recommend (1) preventative Ring to GREEN application in the spring of each future year to help prevent any additional fungus from appearing.
Do I apply Ring to GREEN to my entire lawn, or just the areas with the fungus?
Ring to GREEN applications may be applied on the entire lawn as a PREVENTATIVE APPLICATION, or in the fungal areas only as a SPOT APPLICATION. Spot applications may result in increased turf green-up in the applied area only. Applying Ring to GREEN on the entire lawn is recommended to maintain uniform greening of the turf.
Do I also apply fertilizer to my lawn during Ring to GREEN treatments?
Yes! Lawn fertilizers may be applied 2 weeks in between Ring to GREEN applications, including weed control.
Application and Watering FAQ's
I have questions about applying and/or watering the Ring to GREEN product. Where can I find more information to help me?
Almost all of the information you need to apply and water the Ring to GREEN product is found on the Ring to GREEN bag, with very easy-to-follow instructions. Please read all of the instructions carefully. If you have any other questions, please call us at 801-918-2541.
If I don’t have a Scott’s Classic Drop Spreader #76565, can I use my own drop or broadcast spreader to apply Ring to GREEN?
Yes! Most granular fertilizers are applied at a rate of 5 lbs. per 1000 square feet. Ring to GREEN is applied at 10 lbs. per 1000 square feet. So simply keep your drop or broadcast spreader at the same setting as your fertilizer application, and just apply the Ring to GREEN to your lawn twice at 5 lbs. per 1000 square feet, to equal the needed 10 lbs. per 1000 square feet.
Since Ring to GREEN is supposed to be watered every day per instructions on the bag, what do I do if the city I live in requires watering every other day?
Go to the “BLOG" tab on the Ring to GREEN website, and you will find watering instructions for drought or every-other-day watering requirements.
If the outside temperature is over 95 degrees Fahrenheit after 5:00 PM, but at 6:30 PM, the temperature is under 95 degrees, can I still apply the Ring to GREEN after the temperature is under 95 degrees?
Yes! You can apply the Ring to GREEN product any time after 5:00 PM, as long as the outside temperature does not exceed 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
Can the Ring to GREEN product be applied to my lawn before I turn on my sprinklers in the spring, or after my sprinklers have been turned off in the fall?
Yes! Ring to GREEN may be applied before you turn on your sprinklers in the spring, as long as daily temperatures do not exceed 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Once daily temperatures are above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, you will need to water your lawn if Ring to GREEN has been applied. Ring to GREEN may also be applied after you turn off your sprinklers in the fall, as long as daily temperatures do not exceed 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
How soon can I reseed or sod damaged fungal areas in the lawn, once I have applied Ring to GREEN?
After the 3rd Ring to GREEN application, you may reseed any damaged fungal areas of your lawn in the spring or fall, when temperatures are cooler. You may also replace your damaged fungal areas with turf sod after the 3rd Ring to GREEN treatment any time of the year.
Can I delay my sprinklers from watering at 6:00 PM if I need to use my yard in the evening?
Yes! If you have guests over, or need to use your yard in the evening, it is OK to delay your sprinklers once or twice per week, and turn them on later that evening. But be sure to not skip a day watering.
