ICL provide speciality products to help you meet the demands of modern day turf and landscape management. We take great pride in the integrity and value of our dynamic world-class product portfolios and in the provision of dedicated technical support, available to you from the team at ICL. So advanced. So easy. Today more than ever, professional landscapers and gardeners need smarter lawn care products. So you can be confident that your grass is in perfect condition 365 days a year. ICL products are used by groundsmen at some of the world’s most prestigious sporting venues and by growers of premium quality turf, plants, nursery stock and food crops. ICL developed the Landscaper Pro range to streamline landscape maintenance and lawn care.


THE IMPORTANCE OF NUTRITION 4 reasons why our lawns need fertilizer Close up inspections

A meadow looks lovely from a distance, but get closer and you’ll see that it’s full of bare patches, weeds and scars. Fertilizer helps your lawn look good close up.

Regeneration

Mowing subjects grass to great stress and removes some of its ability to turn sunlight, water and carbon dioxide into food.

Delivering precision nutrition Precision nutrition means using just the right product, less often. ICL is a global leader in slow release and controlled release fertilizers and our products are at the forefront of fertilizer technology. Our research and development teams are continually developing new technologies to improve the environmental profile of our products, without reducing their efficacy.

Bred for performance

We use two technologies in the Landscaper Pro range which extend the longevity of our fertilizers.

Water retention

In our PACE technology, all nutrients are long-acting, while in the case of the Poly-S technology, nitrogen is long-acting. The nutrients are released over a set period depending on the thickness of the coating.

Today’s lawns are bred to perform as well as look good. They require specific foods to give them the competitive edge that we expect. Fertilized grass will develop a dense turf area with lots of roots, this structure helps to hold water around the base of the plants, enabling the soil to absorb more water for when the grass needs it.

With PACE resin coated technology all nutrients are combined within each granule

Poly-S technology: Urea nutrient core Inner sulphur coating Outer polymer coating

OUR FERTILIZERS An effective nutritional programme keeps turf strong and healthy, promotes recovery and boosts resistance to disease. Fertilizers improve lawn appearance and its tolerance of environmental stresses such as shade and drought. Using Landscaper Pro slow and controlled release fertilizers results in less waste and healthier turf. You can provide high-quality nutrition on a limited budget by reducing the number of applications needed each season.

Which fertilizer should I use?

Suggested maintenance programmes for lawns Nutritional programme

An effective nutrient programme for lawn and grass areas, applying ideal nutrient requirements over the course of a year. April - Apply Landscaper Pro Spring & Summer at 35g/m2 June - Apply Landscaper Pro Spring & Summer at 35g/m2 September - Apply Landscaper Pro Autumn & Winter at 35g/m2

Nutritional programme + weed and moss control

An easy-to-use programme delivering nutrition when the plant needs it but also controlling weeds and moss in the spring.

There are two types of fertilizer; conventional (quick release) and long-acting.

April - Apply Landscaper Pro Feed, Weed & Mosskiller at 35g/m2 June - Apply Landscaper Pro Spring & Summer at 35g/m2 September - Apply Landscaper Pro Autumn & Winter at 35g/m2

Some fertilizers, including conventional, liquid and water soluble, release all their nutrients immediately after application.

Complete nutritional programme for grass, beds and borders

These products affect turf quickly in terms of colour and growth, but they also increase nutrient losses out of the system, with a flush of growth (resulting in extra mowing), surface run-off, leaching or gaseous losses.

March - Apply UNIVERSTAR Balance at 35g/m2 June - Apply UNIVERSTAR Balance at 35g/m2 September - Apply UNIVERSTAR Balance at 35g/m2

A simple one product programme for lawns, beds and borders.

Seeding a new grass area

A programme to help get your newly seeded grass area off to a great start. March - A  pply UNIVERSTAR Balance at 35g/m2, Apply Landscaper Pro Performance grass seed at 25g/m2 May - Apply Landscaper Pro Spring & Summer at 35g/m2 August - Apply Landscaper Pro Autumn & Winter at 35g/m2

Conventional fertilizers Long-acting fertilizers deliver nutrients over a set period in the most consistent and reliable way. Delivering nutrients gradually is more efficient so nutrient loss from leaching is minimised. A steady nutrient supply encourages strong, healthy grass with sturdy, compact growth. It also encourages deep roots, essential for turf that is more resistant to heavy traffic, disease, drought and other stresses.

Landscaper Pro fertilizers at a glance:

• Value for money • Completely safe for children, pets and young grass plants

• High nutrient content, so less fertilizer is required

• Optimal delivery of nutrients for enhanced turf quality

• Reliable release for balanced growth and less frequent mowing

• Encourages a strong root system Long-acting fertilizers

OSMOCOTE PREPLANT FERTILIZERS

Osmocote PrePlant Osmocote PrePlant is a handy 1kg pack of pure power Osmocote fertilizer that provides full season nutrition for trees, shrubs and plants from a tried and tested, top brand fertilizer. Osmocote PrePlant has a consistent release pattern due to the unique ICL resin coating technology, providing nutrition when the plants need it. The release is determined by the soil temperature; higher temperatures give a faster release and decrease the longevity period; lower temperatures slow down the release and so increase the longevity period. Osmocote PrePlant contains the ideal NPK and trace element package. This is suitable for the establishment and healthy growth of all plants, trees and shrubs. Recommendations for customers We have anticipated some questions that you may have and provided the answers to help you maximise the effectiveness of Osmocote PrePlant. You can also find all the answers via the website - www.osmocote.co.uk/preplant Where should I use Osmocote PrePlant? Osmocote PrePlant can be applied to a whole range of trees, plants and shrubs including Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Buxus without fear of scorching. When should I use Osmocote PrePlant? Osmocote PrePlant can be used anytime during the growing season but for maximum benefit apply during spring plant, as growth commences. How should I use Osmocote PrePlant? Seed Bed and Lining Out Apply Osmocote PrePlant at recommended rates and work into the top soil before sowing or planting.

Pack size: 10kg box - 10 x 1kg bags per box Analysis: 17-9-10+2MgO+TE

Shrub/Tree Planting Apply at planting time or as growth commences in the spring. For pit planting mix Osmocote PrePlant with soil and/or peat in the planting hole (see our Humax range of peat based growing media on pages 13 and 14 or at www.landscaperpro.co.uk). For semi-mature shrubs or trees apply Osmocote PrePlant as a top dressing to the root ball area plus one metre out. Mature Trees/Shrubs The top dressing should cover the whole rooting area plus at least one metre beyond the spread of branches or run off point. Tree regeneration Osmocote PrePlant should be placed into bore holes made at 40 - 50 cm centres in a 2 - 3 metre band around the tree at the watershed point. This is the most active rooting area. Regeneration with Osmocote PrePlant can be useful where trees have been grassed down.
