About Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer


Your neighbors will wonder how you do it. They look out the window and you’re fertilizing your lawn. The next time they look out, just a few minutes later, you’re playing in the yard with the dog and kids! You’ll have them wondering: “How’d he do it?” “What’s his secret?”

Apply, Water, Play – it’s just that simple.

You’ll have a thick, green lawn that the kids and the pets can enjoy just a few minutes after you’ve applied fertilizer. No more waiting inside on a nice day or staying off of the lawn for 48 hours or more until the fertilizer sets in.

Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer from Water N’ Play™ is a lawn fertilizer that dissolves quickly into the roots upon watering. Because the fertilizer goes directly to the root zone, you don’t have to worry about kids and pets staying off of the yard for a period of time following a fertilizer application, as you would with similar products.

Frequently Asked Questions


How does Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer work? What makes Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer safe? Browse our FAQ section for questions about the purchasing, usage and storage of Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer and much more!

For a quick overview, watch the video!

What makes Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer safe for my pets?

Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer granules dissolve into millions of micro-particles when exposed to water, sending the soluble fertilizer directly to your lawn’s root zone and away from the paws and feet of your loved ones.

Is Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer safe for ALL pets?

When used as directed, yes. However, it may be toxic to aquatic life and should not be used in or near ponds or streams.
Note: Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer is not safe for consumption by pets or children.

What makes your “pet safe” claim different from the claims on other products and packages?

The “pet safe” or “kid and pet friendly” claims found on other fertilizer products simply refer to the fact that they do not include a herbicide or pesticide.
We’ve taken this a step further.

While our product is also a straight fertilizer (and therefore does not contain pesticides or herbicides), our “pet safe” claim is due to the technology behind our product. When our fertilizer particles come in contact with water, they immediately begin to disperse and move into your lawn’s root zone. This is thanks to our patented Dispersing Granule Technology, which we pioneered in the golf market.

This rapid dispersion and movement of the fertilizer into your lawn means that as soon as you’ve watered the product in as directed, your lawn is again safe for the kids and pets to return to. No waiting required.

With other “pet safe”  or “kid and pet friendly” fertilizers, once you’ve spread the product and applied water, you would be forced to wait for a period of a couple of days, up to a week or more, for the product to move down into your lawn. This means you would be faced with a long, dangerous period of time during which the kids and pets could be exposed to a lawn which still held fertilizer particles on its surface.

With our Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer, you’ve removed these safety concerns. It really is as simple as apply, water, play!

How does Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer compare to other brands of fertilizer?

Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer’s main point of difference is the level of safety it provides. While most soluble fertilizers require you to wait 24-48 hours or more after application before returning to outside activities on your lawn, Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer allows you to return to using your lawn immediately after watering the product in as directed.

Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer also has a higher amount of slow release nitrogen than what can be found in similar products on the market today, feeding your lawn for up to twice as long as other fertilizers.

When should Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer be applied?

While some fertilizer varieties are designed specifically for seasonal use, Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer is designed to feed your lawn throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall – and Winter, if you’re climate allows. Each application of Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer will provide up to 12 full weeks of food for your lawn.

Is Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer “organic?”

No, Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer is not an organic product.

Do all fertilizers dissolve quickly after watering?

No. Current fertilizers on the market are not designed to disperse as quickly as Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer. With these other products, granules may remain on the soil surface several weeks after application.

Is it safe for my kids to walk and play on after application?

After following the directions for watering Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer into your lawn, it is safe for children and pets to resume activities!

What happens if I do not water Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer in after application?

If not watered in, Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer will lie on the soil surface until enough moisture is present to dissolve. The micro-particles do fall to the base of the grass, however, so pick up is minimal. We recommend watering in soon after application.

What if it rains before I apply?

Not a problem! The moisture left on the grass blades will begin dissolving the granules. If adequate water is not present to dissolve the granules, additional watering may be required.

Can I see Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer on the ground?

Yes. We have added a “Garden Trak” tracer to make it visible during application.

Will Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer stain my sidewalk or driveway?

No, but it is good practice to always sweep or blow fertilizer off of driveways and sidewalks.

Will Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer kill weeds and crabgrass?

No, as this is a high-performance fertilizer product, not a weed-killer. However, thickening your lawn with Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer will slow the development of weeds and crabgrass.

How long will my lawn stay green?

Properly applying Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer to your lawn will provide up to 12 full weeks of feeding.

How many times do I need to apply?

Due to the high amount of slow release nitrogen, we recommend applying Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer every 8-12 weeks.

I am a distributor/retailer who would like pallet quantities of Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer — what do I do?

We offer both full pallet (120 bags) and quarter pallet (30 bags) configurations. Please contact us, and a member of our customer service team will be happy to work with you.

What precautions should I take with unused product?

As with any fertilizer product, Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer should be stored in a dry, safe location. It should be kept away from pets and children, as it is not safe for consumption.

Can I keep my unused Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer until next year?

Absolutely. Just remember to store in a dry, safe location away from pets and children.

Does Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer contain phosphorus?

No. Pet Safe Lawn Fertilizer is a phosphorus-free product.
