Rachio Lawn Champion

Do I need a Rachio Controller to purchase Lawn Champion?


No, but water is a critical component of plant health, so Rachio Lawn Champion is most effective when combined with Rachio’s watering schedules. See how our products work together in the Rachio Ecosystem.

How do I apply Rachio Lawn Champion to my lawn?


Applying Lawn Champion is easy. In brief, you can attach the applicator to the bottle and then attach those to a hose. Spray your lawn until the bottle is empty. View detailed instructions.

What makes Rachio Lawn Champion kid and pet-safe?


Typical fertilizers are not safe for human exposure at application. They often contain far more synthetic chemicals than soil and plants can absorb. This excess seeps down into groundwater and pollutes shared water resources — even destroying the natural ecosystems found in streams, rivers, and oceans. Rachio lawn treatments contain the exact right amount of all-natural nutrients for your lawn’s specific needs, so there’s no waste and no pollution. View Lawn Champion ingredients.

What’s the difference between ordering two and four bottles?


We recommend applying one treatment (one bottle) every 45 days, so two bottles should last you about three months. With that in mind, four bottles should last most customers for about one growing season, although those in warmer areas may want to purchase more. Shop Rachio Lawn Champion now.
