Jonathan Green: Grass seed, fertilizer & organic lawn products

Jonathan Green is the leading supplier of grass seed, fertilizer and organic lawn and garden products to professional customers, like sod growers and independent retailers, such as garden centers and hardware stores. Jonathan Green is a family business with a turfgrass research farm in Oregon and distribution through out the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Mid-Western United States.

Jonathan Green specializes in family and pet friendly lawn and garden products which will grow the New American Lawn and Landscape and are in harmony with the green world our founder, Jonathan Green, cared about.

The nutritional needs of grass plants are complex. The organic system of lawn fertility, based on the use of natural organic materials as the source of all fertility has merit. This is not a new approach to the subject of lawn care and soil management; it is the oldest method of making the soil more fruitful. It is a method whereby nature's own laws of maintaining fertility are applied.

Healthy soil is a living breathing system. It contains essential minerals, air, water, and a wide variety of living organisms and the decaying remains of dead ones. The ultimate goal of my Organic Lawn Care Programs is to improve the soil, making it more hospitable for lawn grass plants. My Jonathan Green Organic Lawn Care fertilizers, weed control andsoluble calcium soil conditioner are designed to provide your lawn with excellent turf nutrition in a slow long lasting fundamentally balanced formulation.

One of Life's Greatest Pleasures

A piece of ground, not necessarily very large, where one can grow some tomatoes and vegetables seems to give us one of life's greatest pleasures. Or perhaps it's a beautiful flower garden you long for. When we think about it, we realize that most of us have a longing for beauty. By creating a garden, we are opening a special door to our inner self. We realize that this creation can give us a place of beauty where we can enjoy peace and contentment. This place is a welcome change from the distractions of modern life.

To work the soil, to set out the tomato plants or colorful flowers in the Spring, to watch the fruit ripen and the flowers bloom has a value beyond the delicious and fragrant crop that is produced.

On your next visit to your local garden center or hardware store be sure to ask for a copy of the Jonathan Green - Garden Care Products Guide. It is full of useful information and helpful hints about plantings and maintaining Roses, Bulbs, Flowers, Vegetables, Trees & Shrubs and Acid-loving Plants. The Garden Care Products Guide is absolutely free and it will be a very helpful tool in insuring that your planting project is a success.

For most of us our lawn is the single largest landscaping project that we will ever attempt. The lawn has been described as the "picture frame" for the house. A good lawn isn't hard to grow, if you stick to the basics. The basics are Grass Seed, Fertilizer and Problem Solvers and the Lawn Products section of this website describes all three and their product offerings.

On your next visit to the local garden center or hardware store, be sure to ask for a copy of the Jonathan Green Lawn Care Calendar. It is full of good information and practical solutions to your lawn care needs. Educate yourself on lawn care by reading the back panels of our bags, before you apply each product. Watch the informational How-To Lawn Videos and use the Lawn Care Calendar. After doing so, you will most certainly have the Best Lawn In Town!

Both Hollandia Nursery and Hollandia Gift and Garden carry the Jonathan Green line. We always want the best products for our customers. With their commitment to stay out of the chain stores, they are able to keep their seed mixes at such a higher quality. With no gimmick mixes, our customers are getting what they pay for with Jonathan Green. The rebate program helped sell their new Organic line of products and their new Black Beauty Ultra really delivers a great lawn. In a time when most brands are all talk, Jonathan Green really delivers the quality.

We began carrying Jonathan Green Grass Seeds in 2003 and received many positive customer comments. Homeowners told us that there were places in their lawn where they had little hope of ever being able to grow grass. After planting Black Beauty in heavy traffic and drought stricken spots, or Shady Nooks in densely shaded areas, they finally achieved success. When we started selling the Jonathan Green Annual Lawn Care Program, it was the same story. Their products are formulated using newer technology and are superior. We also like the fact that we can sell a better product at a better price than the discount chain stores offer. Jonathan Green is in Grossman's to stay!

Adams Fairacre Farms and Jonathan Green have had a great relationship in all three of our locations for many years. In our Newburgh location we have carried Jonathan Green since the day we opened 10 years ago. From fertilizer to grass seed Jonathan Green has great products and a great customer following. With their Organic Lawn Care Program sales have grown, since our customers are becoming more environmentally aware. Everyone needs to think "GREEN", Jonathan Green that is.

True Value 

My customers appreciate that Jonathan Green is a family owned company. I use that as a selling point in discussion with my quality minded customers. The feedback regarding favorable results has been overwhelmingly positive. Usually I don’t hear back unless there is a problem. My customers go out of their way to tell me how they like the Jonathan Green products. I should also add that the success of the organic products has been a big surprise.

I always had trouble growing grass in the shade. Most of my lawn is covered by shade during the day and I was getting nothing to grow. I had all but given up then I tried Jonathan Green Shady Nooks. I can’t believe how well the grass filled in! I have grass growing right up to the base of the trees. Finally I have the lawn I always wanted. Thank you!
