Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by homerepairnut very happy with this product
I have used a lot of lawn fertilizers over the years...this one seems to really do the job well (and is safer for my dogs). The yard of the house we purchased probably had not been fertilized in years and looked quite neglected. We tried this one because we have two dogs (they love to sniff it). It has really done a great job of thickening the grass, making it more green and just overall look much better....I am very pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer One of the best ever . . .
I have been using the "Natural" for several years now, wonderful, no burn, emerald greening.
Twice a year I also use this (heavy) on shrubs, trees, palms, citrus.
I use it when planting the flower beds.and every 4 weeks when gowning. NO burn, wonderful.
Finicky Zoysia grass thrives on this stuff, one thing I've learned is consistency about every 8 weeks year round. I live in Florida, I put it on fairly heavy during rainy season. Never a burn-
Several of my neighbor's now use it also, great product., we are happy :)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LawnChief Spreader Setting Inaccurrate
This might be a good fertilizer if I could get it put down at the right rate. The spreader setting of 10.5 for Scotts Turf Builder Classic Drop Spreader does not put it down at the correct rate. Way too little comes out at this setting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reggiej81 Excellent product
Switched from the non-organic Scotts fertilizer to the organic/natural Scotts fertilizer and found this product being much better!
First, it is very forgiving - if you apply slightly too much of it in some areas, it will never burn your lawn.
Second - with the regular non organic fertilizer, I could always see the areas that I walked through with my spreader on the Kentucky Bluegrass grass that we have in Illinois. It was never applied evenly, no matter how much I tried and how accurate I tried to be with my pattern of spreading. The natural fertilizer solves this problem. You can never see the walking pattern, it always looks like one uniform, clean blanket of green grass.
Third, this product is safe for the kids, pets and the water sources. Always important and great feature.
Overall, don't expect the grass to become "green" as quickly as you would with a non-organic fertilizer. But trust me, it will become green AND it will be healthy! This is because the nitrogen in this natural fertilizer is a slow-release nitrogen and it takes a bit longer to give that green color to the lawn. It will also be a bit lighter green, not that dark type of green. But that dark green that you get with non-organic fertilizers burns the lawn when it gets really hot and water supply is tight.
One suggestion - buy a separate weed killer/preventer, because this does not kill/prevent weeds. This is only a fertilizer.
Overall, spend a bit more on the natural/organic version and invest in your lawn. You won't be disapointed with long term results of this product. This is my third year using it and it works like a charm.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beagler Great Product for a Pet Friendly Lawn
We purchased this product as we have four dogs and wanted to be sure they were not exposed to dangerous chemicals. The fertilizer really greens up the lawn and we know for a fact that it does not harm our dogs since they love to lick the leftovers. Just be sure to water it in well or your four legged friends may eat most of it!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rochambeaux Disgusting Product
If you do a bit of Google searching (I wish I had before using this product) you will find many many users have the same experience.
The product stinks. Literally and figuratively.
I applied it yesterday and later int eh day it rained. The smell created is nauseating. And today came the flies - too many to count.
Many dog owners claim their pets cannot stop eating this stuff.
We have 2 cats and we spent a lot of time and money turning our backyard into a "kitty park". Before yesterday they would spend hours and hours outside - often times we had to round them up at bedtime. Ever since this went down they refuse to even go out back.
A disgusting product that deserves 0 stars, if possible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by epwiii Great for a pet yard
I have two dogs that live with us and 4 grand dogs that are frequent visitors. The back yard is large enough to accommodate all of them at one time, however without frequent feeding with Scotts Natural Lawn Food there would be no lawn for them to play on. I have used this product for several years and my back lawn is as healthy as the front that has no traffic from pets.
