Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Stuff! We decided to plant seed in our yard instead of sod. Not being too aware of how to go about this, (not aware of how horrible the soil is here) I tilled up the soil last year and put in the seed, after about half a year, it grew up very slowly very short length not doing much... I was getting very frustrated, about ready to give up and just get sod. I went to the store and found this starter food and thought I'd give it one last try.. All I have to say is WOW! My grass started getting length and filling in and it looks awesome! I am so glad I decided to try it and save a lot of money on not buying sod! Thank You Scotts!!! May 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MANY PROBLEMS***WILL NEVER USE THIS PRODUCT AGAIN!!!!! When using this product it clogged our spreader many times and we had to unload the spreader, clear it, refill it, and start over. When it would come out of the spreader it was a dust and we are not sure how evenly it was spread on our lawn or where it was blowing to. It also covered both the tractor and the spreader in the dust which lead to a considerable amount of additional clean up time and the waste of the fertilizer. Too many problems with this product and definitely not worth the effort. We will never purchase or use this starter again, A huge waste of almost $100.00. April 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great starter food for new and established lawns As with all Scotts products, I have been nothing but satisfied with this starter food as well. This product won't solve all of your lawn problems, but preparation is the key. When starting a new lawn or repairing problem areas, a good mixture (50/50)of topsoil and compost worked into the area before seeding or feeding makes a world of difference. After adding this topdressing, why use an inferior product? Use Scotts! April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grass Was Green Quick I used this for the first time this year rather than starting the season with a weed killer. This was mainly because I seeded early and because this year's winter kept the grass well covered under snow. Using the starter product turned my grass greener than I have seen it in 3 years and it grew at a healthy pace. Did wonders for my lawn this year. April 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grass seeds on Steroids!!! I applied Scott's Turf Builder Starter food for New Grass last fall on a reseeded lawn in a recently built home. After applying Scott's seeds, Starter Fertilizer was applied about a week and a half later, when some of the seeds started to germinate. This fertilizer acts as a steroid for recently germinated seeds making them grow faster and greener. It also makes the existing grass thicker and healthier. Based on my short experience with Scotts product, I will be their customer forever!!! April 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jump start your sod nothing get the sod going like Scotts Starter! I put down quite a bit of sod and always use Scotts with great results every time, fast green up and grow in. worth every penny April 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Product is good and works quickly The product was good and worked quickly but also encouraged the growth of weeds. Should not promote anything but growth of grass. April 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter® Food for New Grass REALLY worked! For years, I had been battling trying to grow grass on one side of my house, where this portion of my lawn received the least amount of sun during the day. A friend of mine recommended Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter® Food for New Grass, to me and really urged me to give it a try. I purchased a bag and put it out the same afternoon. I am so pleased to say that I now have gorgeous, thick, rich, green grass on the side of my house, that used to be so sad looking and dingy! I cannot recommend Scotts® Turf Builder® Starter® Food for New Grass enough! THANK YOU Scotts® for an amazing product!! August 14, 2014
