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 114.
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.

Scott's starter fertilizer got my sod off to a great start, within a week of placing the sod, it was very healthy, deep green, and growing quickly. I wouldn't consider investing the effort into a new lawn without using Scotts to ensure a great start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works This stuff actually works! I have had no clue on how to grow grass after my front/back yard was all removed after I had pavers installed. I followed all instructions on the scotts sun/shade mix but my results were minimal. After some research I came across this product and was weary since some reviewers said it burned their yard. I decided to give it a try anyway and just water a little extra. Two days later grass started appearing everywhere and thick. A little of it got into the crack of my sidewalk when spreading and it started growing a ton grass inside the crack. Make sure you clean it off your sidewalk/driveway/pavers when applying.
