Optimize is a concentrated organic humate soil conditioner that improves poor soil and increases fertility and vitality with organic matter. It begins working as soon as it’s added into the soil, and continues to release nutrients and enrich the soil over time. Optimize adds concentrated, fully decomposed organic matter (true humus) to create the soil environment for all plants to thrive.

Lawn did improve
My lawn has shown improvement. Your products are easy to understand & apply. My lawn is still alive under the Virginia heat & humidity. I look forward to continued success. Thank you
Happy So Far
I applied Optimize to my lawn for the first time last Fall just prior to a rain and within a couple of days my lawn was becoming a darker green. I applied another application of Optimize early this Spring and an application of Nourish-Biosol a couple months later. My lawn currently looks very healthy and much darker green than any of my neighbors. So far I am happy with these products but, I am going to reserve my final judgements to see how my lawn responds to the products this Summer. I have irrigation and, I will not be applying any other chemicals (including chemical fertilizers) to my lawn this year.
Delivery was fast.I applied the optimizer about a month ago.So far the soil looks better.It will take a little longer to see the best results.
Yellow tuft root rot
Great product. Stopped the disease and the lawn has recovered.
EXCELLENT Results with OPTIMIZE
After a couple years of OPTIMIZE, my plants and flowers have emerged hardier, bloomed better and weathered drought well! I have less insect damage and my badly-clay soil has been improving to the point where I don't have to keep adding new topsoil. I have also had super results with *********. It helps keep the soil from "marshing out" during a brief winter thaw so it doesn't "pop" my plants during the inevitable late-winter refreeze. It also helped me save two Japanese Maples which I thought had died after bad scale infestation. AND saved my outdoor bonzai'd black pine which suffered borers that got to the heartwood before I discovered them. With climate change wreaking pest and temp havoc the last couple years, John & Bob products have kept my garden going. Thank you!!! Eleanor
