Test a small area with a 3% Ferrous Sulphate Heptahydrate solution (ie. 30mls/1L of water). If this does not give the desired effect a stronger solution can be used up to a maximum of 15% Ferrous Sulphate (150mls/1L of water ). A typical application for greening of grass would be 30ml-60mls per Litre. Be aware that at dilutions of 150mls per Litre, blackening of moss will occur. Over application of the product could also result in blackening of the grass itself. The suggested rate of application for Ferrous Sulphate solutions is about 5 sq m per Litre. This will lead to greening up of grass and hardening of lawn against disease.
Application of ferrous sulphate to hard surfaces such as concrete should be avoided as rust-like staining will occur.
No more than 3 applications per year should be carried out on the lawn.
Ferrous sulphate can also be used to stain concrete and some limestones and sandstones a yellowish rust color.
