Can this be used in shady areas?

My backyard is very shady. Because of this I felt that I should buy fertilizer that will grow grass in shady areas. Will this do the trick?
Asked by: JED14
Yes - fertilizer isn't dependent on sunlight for it to work.

15 lb. 5,000 sq. ft. Turf Builder Starter Brand Fertilizer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 111.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Experience I have used this product countless times and it worked like magic. Unfortunately, the last one i bought wasn't good. I planned to over-seed my lawn this fall and bought the turf builder starter brand to use after applying the seeds. When i opened it, i discovered the fertilizer was wet and too thick, was unable to use it with the spreader as it kept clogging the opening and did not work. Now i have a bag of fertilizer that is unusable and can't be returned because it has already been open. Very disappointed with both Home depot for selling this to me and Scott for not having a way to prevent such.

I usually get good germination and I have noticed grasslings in areas where this was not spread not doing as well as areas where I spread this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scott's products are excellent I use this in the spring and fall especially after overseeding the lawn. It helps green up the grass and give the new seeds an extra boost to start growing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Witness the change Ours is a brand new lawn with new grass. The grass was not what I had wanted and any amount of watering wasn't helping. And then someone told me to try this product. So I jumped on it, bought a bag and went home. I did one application and was surprised to see how effective it was. Within 3-4 days the grass was dark green and started growing like crazy. Had to mow my lawn once a week that's how crazy it went. Note that after application, do water your lawn. And, there were no grass burns as this thing is a slow release fertilizer. I recommend it for anyone looking to change their turf. Worth the money. I used Scotts spreader to spread it.
