Four All Seasons is an all natural fertilizer company, owned by Jack Hogue, that manufactures two fertilizer products
for lawn and garden industries made from co-products of the ethanol manufacturing process.

Four All Seasons was founded by Delayne Johnson in 2004 in an effort to provide consumers with an alternative to
petroleum based products while adding value to rural Iowa's economy. Both products were tested at the 2004, 2005
and 2006 turf grass trials at Iowa State University. Jack Hogue purchased the company from Delayne in 2011 and
sells the fertilizer at the Prairie Pedlar and various outlets throughout Iowa.

Satisfy all of your turf building needs with this economical, easy to use, and environmentally friendly product. Four All
Seasons offers the highest quality all natural fertilizer products available. By using Four All Seasons, you'll know you
are doing your part to protect our environment and still maintaining a healthy beautiful lawn and garden. Four All
Seasons fertilizers are kid safe and pet safe. No masks or protective clothing are necessary. Your lawn, flowerbeds,
or garden will be the envy of the neighborhood.

Two formulas are available:
Our 9-1-1 100% Natural Bio-Based fertilizer is ideal for gardens of all sizes. Works with any
residential or commercial spreader, and safe for children and pets!

Available in two sizes:
40 lb. paper bag has 3.60 pounds of pure Nitrogen per bag and would cover 3,600
square feet on a 1 lb of Nitrogen per 1,000 square foot application.
5 lb. paper bag has .45 lb of Nitrogen per bag and would cover 450 square feet.
Our 11-1-1 fertilizer is a 100% Natural Bio-Based product that is great for preventing weed
growth in established lawns, without burning grass, flowers, or plants. This product contains
corn gluten meal which has been proven by Iowa State University to hinder weed
germination in established lawns.

Available in three sizes:
35 lb. poly bag has 3.85 lb. of Nitrogen per bag and cover 3,850 square feet.
40 lb. paper bag has 4.4 lb. of Nitrogen per bag and covers 4,400 square feet.
5 lb. paper bag has .55 lb. of Nitrogen per bag and cover 550 square feet
The water insolubility of a natural fertilizer like FAS provides for a slow release so that the lawn has time to benefit
from a complete and continuous application. Another advantage of slow release is that there is no rapid growth spurt
to deplete the lawn's carbohydrate reserves. In contrast, the water solubility of chemical fertilizers leads to quick
release. The lawn only receives the chemical's benefit of about half of the application. The half that is received causes
a spring growth spurt that depletes the lawn's stored energy necessary for mid-season times of stress.
With FAS, the application of a more moderate percentage of nitrogen, in proportion to other nutrients in the fertilizer,
lets the lawn remain independent with strong root systems. The application of chemical products, on the other hand,  
unleashes excessive nitrogen and tends to lessen the lawn's natural self-sufficiency because the lawn grows short
roots and relies on the fertilizer to sustain itself.
A natural fertilizer like FAS will maintain or increase the rate of decomposition by adding beneficial micro-organisms. In
contrast, chemical applications can slow or halt natural decomposition processes so that thatch can accumulate.
Natural fertilizers and top-dressing create little or no pH change (no acidity increase). Therefore, earthworms and
microorganisms remain to maintain the soil, assisting in aeration and decomposition processes. Unfortunately,
chemical applications increase soil acidity and force earthworms and micro-organisms to emigrate from the soil.
Grasses will thrive at neutral pH levels that are created by eliminating chemical applications from lawn maintenance.
Most grasses do not take well to the high acidity levels in chemically maintained soils.
Natural fertilizers and chemical-free control measures will not harm you, your family, your friends, your pets, or your
lawn. You can sleep soundly knowing that your lawn is healthy and those you care about are safe. Did you know that
the EPA registration of a chemical does not imply that the chemical has been proven to be safe? Many chemicals used
regularly by lawn-maintenance companies are possible carcinogens and could also cause nervous system damage.
Because FAS is a natural fertilizer, don't be disappointed if your lawn isn't immediately lush and green in the spring.
Within a few weeks after application, the grass's response to FAS is noticeable. Additionally its slow release provides
continuous nutrition throughout the growing season, requiring fewer applications per year. This will save time and
money in the long run. Chemical-free control measures do not completely eradicate weeds and pests. However FAS's
11-1-1 formula does have measurable weed retention capabilities. An organic approach to lawn care is the safest way
to fertilize and suppress weeds over time. A strong, healthy root system is the best defense in keeping weeds at bay.
Rely on FAS to keep your lawn both child and pet safe. Use an environmentally friendly fertilizer and enjoy a lush
green lawn all season long.
