Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Michael Plus 2, not what it once was.
I have used Scott's products exclusively for over 25 years and until the past 3 or 4 have not been disappointed. The other fertilizer types perform as the should, but the Plus 2 line lately only handles dandilions and has NO removal impact against clover or broadleaved weeds. The last two seasons (2011 & 2012) I have had to supplent this product with a spray on weed killer. This is the reason I no longer recommend this product.
If you only need dandilion killer and fertilizer combination this will exceed your requirements. If you are expecting it to perform as advertised, the results will disappoint you. I suspect a formulation change similar to what Scotts had done a couple years after releasing their grub control.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by retrahs Read the instructions and online content
This product works exactly as Scotts says it does if you really do your homework on it. I read all printing on the bag, all online content (including customer reviews and user tips), and was, therefore, not disappointed with the results.
As the product requires that the leaf surface of the weeds must be wet so the product can better adhere to it I chose to apply it on very dewy mornings with no rain forecast for the next few days.
I also mowed my grass in accordance with the instructions.
As such I am confident that the product did kill most of the weeds that came in contact with it while at the same time fertilizing the rest of my yard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LazyE Worked for me
I have lived in this house for 3yrs. with no maintenance to my lawn and I know the previous owner and no maintenance was performed by their family either. I have a very shady lawn with very thin areas of fine fescue with lots of weeds ( dandelions, clover etc. ). Used 1 application in the spring according to scott's lawn schedule and it knocked out all dandelions in my yard and most of the clover. There is some other kind of weed left but it has thinned what weeds were left out alot. No this did not knock out every weed in one application but it's not supposed too if you lawn hasn't been maintained like mine. I think this has worked great for my lawn from only one application. My grass is doing great and better than the last couple of years. I have had friends and neighbors comment on my front yard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Martin J. Scotts Turf Builder Plus 2 with weed Control
I have to admint. It's done a wonderful job to my lawn. My son who does landscaping wanted to know who I hired.
I told him Scott's.
I didn't tell him it was the stuff in the bag. He's looking for Scott's Lawn Care.
I just can't stop staring at my lawn.
It's a wonderful product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scottspi Yes I would recommend this product.
I have been taking care of my lawn since I was a teenager, and that has been for over 30 years. I have always used Scotts products, because they work and the value is excellent. I do remember when i could get he 15KSqft2 bag for the price of the small bag.
I follow Scotts instructions to the letter and have never had any problems with my lawn.
Honestly, no fertilizer will remove and prevent 100% weed free(except the crab grass preventer that does kill 100 % of the crab grass), but Scotts does a great job, I use all their products- spreader, crabgrass preventer, summarizer and Fall fertilizer.
If your burning your lawn, then your just using too much.
I would high recommend Scotts products to anyone.

I have used various forms of lawn maintenance products for over 30 years. I have hired contracted lawn services to maintain my lawns professionally. Since I have been using Scott's Lawn Fertilizer programs, my lawn has never been better! My favorite application every year is the Turf Builder Weed and Feed. I cut my grass short every spring, then use the recommended spreader amounts, and within 2 weeks the broad leaf weeds are gone and my grass is as green as it was when it was professionally maintained! I highly recommend the Scotts fertilizer program and it has never failed me yet ....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Castillo Brought my lawn back to life
For the last three years my lawn was a wasteland. Just a bunch of weeds growing and a few spots of grass. I was about to get rid of it and install artificial grass. I live in El Paso, TX and its in the desert so weeds are everywhere. I decided to try the Scott's program as my last ditch effort before totally giving up. Well, after applying the Scott's weed and feed I started noticing that the weeds were dying and new grass was sprouting up. I continued this program throughout the Fall of 2013 and now my lawn is green, lush, and thick. I now have to mow my lawn twice a week because the grass is so healthy and thriving.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JSB2B Works well, but
Every year I look for a weed and feed fertilizer and get sticker shock when I see the price of Scott's products. I will say Scott's products perform pretty well as advertized but the cost is a major factor. Also, the weed and feed always has clumps in it which have to be broken up so as not to clog the Scott's rotary spreader. The orange dye will make your shoes turn orange too. Products by other vendors do not have the high price, clumping, and dye problems and seem to work almost as well as Scott's but Scott's will refund your purchase price almost with no questions asked which I have done twice in 30 years!!!
