Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hanchera2184 Ruined my lawn, grass is dead and I still have weeds!
Spent months roto-tilling and improving the soil before planting new lawn from seed. Within weeks it was infested w/ purslane & crabgrass which I think came from the GroMulch because I have never had purslane anywhere on my property. Waited the indicated time (obviously not long enough) before treating the lawn with the weed & feed, but the product immediately started to burn and kill my grass. The weeds were not effected by this product. Just my grass.
I would not recommend this product, and am extremely disappointed that I now have to start over.

I am astonished to read any negative reviews of this product. I can only conclude that weather or over-application could have been the issue. In my case, I was first unable to find the Scott's brand of this product, unfortunately for me. I first purchased what claimed to be a similar product, made by Tru-Green. What a waste of money, as it actually FED MY WEEDS. That is the only reason I feel compelled to mention it in this review. The weeds doubled in size. I had mainly crabgrass, dandelions, and creeping Charlie. I had clover as well, but I didn't consider this undesirable. However, the folks who do my aeration and over-seeding do, as it apparently chokes out grass. Anyway, I got the product, and followed the package instructions, including the setting to use on my Scott brand spreader. I appreciate it that you give instructions for other brands of spreaders. I applied to the grass and crossed my fingers. The results are not automatic. After a couple of weeks, I noticed huge brown patches when I was mowing. This is actually a good sign, as it was where all of the weeds had proliferated. I now see almost no weeds whatsoever in my lawn. I do see violets, but these have never bothered me and they don't hurt anything. The bottom line is, I highly recommend this product and urge folks to follow instructions to the letter, including when to apply based upon prediction of rain. I applied mine during little chance of rainfall and two days prior to my irrigation system's next scheduled watering. Thank you, Scott's, for an excellent product. Also, thanks for considering the environment by NOT including phosphorus, something none of us need. It will take a while for me to get grass back into the bald patches, but that's okay as long as the weeds are gone. I will reapply late in the fall if necessary.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Swanyxxiv Saved our lawn!! Miracle product!
We used the liquid, hook up to your hose weed and feed for years with no results. We ended up hand plucking dandelions for months and still they'd come back. We switched to the granuals this year and it worked remarkably well. We live in southern Idaho and have KBG. During a cooler week in June (75 degrees) we decided to try the granuals. We watered our lawn for 5 minutes to get the grass and leaves of the dandelions nice and wet, spread the weed and feed with our broadcast spreader then waited 72hrs (I think that was key) before watering or mowing. I didn't think we were going to have much success as I didn't see much of the weed and feed stuck on the leaves but boy was I wrong. The side of our house was completely overrun by dandelions a few weeks prior to applying the weed and feed. Now, about a month later, the side of our house is completely weed free! We love this product and will continue to use it.

I purchased 2 bags and a spreader, followed the instructions and did not see any results from this product. I wasted $45. I would look at a different product if you wanting to get rid of any weeds in the yard.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by seniorlady71 worst product I ever used
To start with I would have given no stars if I could have. I purchased this product to get rid of the weeds in my yard. It did not get rid of the weeds and now I have the existing weeds along with all other kind of weeds I have never had before. My neighbors do nothing to their lawns & have better looking yards than mine. I have wasted so much money on Scott brands & now I have a yard full of dandelions & about 7 other weeds that I have no clue what they are. THANKS A LOT SCOTT PRODUCTS. I'm a woman & have no one now to help me get rid of the weeds.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Did not kill dandelions
Since I could not find a straight dandelion killer that I could apply with my broadcast spreader, I went for this. I bought 2 bags, heavily wet the lawn down concentrating on the weeds (says weeds should be wet so it sticks to them), applied both bags so liberally I could smell it for a few days. Also literally buried some of the dandelions in it.
One week later and the fertilizer part is working well, the lawn is growing very fast and green, however most of the dandelions look like they are thriving.
The first thing I always think when I see a poor review of a brand name product is USER ERROR. I can assure you, the stuff was on the dandelions, it has not rained significantly in two weeks (that's why I wet the lawn down myself), every day this week has been in the 70's, and most of those weeds out there are thriving. I think it withered a couple of them, but the vast majority are mocking me with their bright yellow smiles.
