The poll’s success has provided us with valuable insights into the choices our respondents make to maintain their lawns, highlighting their commitment to both quality and affordability.

Poll Overview

The central question posed was which granular fertilizer brand or family our respondents currently use. This inquiry was sparked by a desire to understand if there are more cost-effective alternatives to popular brands that do not compromise on lawn quality.

Key Findings

  • Leading Choices: The Anderson emerged as the top choice, garnering 23% of the votes, closely followed by Yard Mastery Family with 22%, and Lesco with 20%. These results highlight a diverse preference among our respondents, though a few brands clearly lead the pack.

Additionally, 6% of the votes went to those who prefer shopping at Farm and Feed stores, suggesting a trend towards supporting local businesses and potentially finding better deals.
  • Community Insights: Despite the popularity of certain brands, the community’s comments reflected a broader spectrum of strategies and preferences. Some respondents advocate for custom solutions, mixing specific nutrients to tailor their lawn care to precise needs at a fraction of the cost.
