Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DL916 Lawn looks fine!!
Early Spring here in Sacramento valley and we have a number of dandelions and 2 other weeds I have no idea of their name on the front lawn... applied this over the lawn per directions about two weeks ago and the lawn looks fine. It does seem to be growing faster, probably a combination of warmer weather and the fertilizer. I'd expect it to take a bit longer to notice a significant weed reduction. Though did purchase the 10,000 sq ft bag at Walmart sale. Scott's runs a special 10,000 sq ft bag for same price as 5000sq ft bag, so was only $19.99 for twice the amount. Noticed some comments about people claiming their lawns were dying. There's quite an extensive list of of grasses listed on the bag that it recommends not applying this product to. Also lists temporary colorization problems for others. I'd recommend being aware of your variety of grass prior to application. You could inquire at a local area nursery to see if they might be able to identify your grass variety prior to applying any fertilizer of weed control. Another good source would be a college or university in your area... they often have master gardeners that are available to provide assistance like this.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by fpizzolo It worked some what... reduced the amount of Dandelion , but not enough.
I live in Rockland county, NY. I think I have tried 4 different brands to get rid of the Dandelions in my yard and none of them do that good of a job. I put it down in early March. I used plenty by setting the spreader on high, hoping that there would be no Dandelions this year. But Its just impossible, I think to get rid of all of them would make this a great product, but it doesn't.
On both sides of me, they do nothing to reduce or get rid of there Dandelion problem. So I guess Im stuck weed wacking them! Who makes a product to just kill Dandelions? I would even inject each and every one of those suckers if needed, just to get rid of them..

We bought a house and I wanted the best yard in our neighborhood. This is my first time using weed and feed. Let me 1st say that it has done wonders for our yard. The property line is clearly defined and has the fewest weeds in it. I do however urge you to overlap each pass a good bit. I did it at the setting recommended with my scotts spreader and the distance between each pass, however I have stripes down my entire lawn where it did not kill all the white flower associated with clover . I plan on getting another bag and going back over the stripes. Do bare in mind this was my first time using. The product itself is amazing. Got all the dandelions. Highly recommend and will use again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by vislo21 it works, but dont expect a miracle product.
The bottom line is the product does what it is suppose to do if directions are followed. However do not expect your yard to be perfect after one application of fertilizer and weed killer. Yards are hard, expensive work. That is why so many hire outside companies to do the work. You have to be in it for the long haul to do it yourself. I used weed and feed once and have noticed improvement, but I still have weeds coming up. It only kills weeds that are grown, not future weeds. You have to feed your lawn to choke out the weeds through out the seasons. Persistance and knowledge wins when it comes to lawns. Read all of the bag and all other info you can find.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lharville worst product ever, over priced and non productive
I used a professional lawn care service for many years, a few years ago I tried to save some money and care for my lawn myself, for a Couple years I tried and used another brand with great success but we do not have a local store so I switched to Scott's the last couple of years and have had no success, their products are over priced, I could have continued my service I was using just as cheap and they would have applied it for me, since I have been using Scott's my dandelions have not been fazed but seem to be mutiplying, hard on the pocket, Scott's products are so bad I can't even give them a one star rating, I have just talked to a couple lawn care specialist to see what I can do and they said the same thing quit using Scott's worst product out there and over priced.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Scotts kills EVERYTHING including grass!
I used this (and the seed) for my lawn and it did nothing but kill everything. My concern was filling the patches that I had to make my lawn whole again. I used the product as directed and even bought the spreader. As you can see in the pics, you can see everywhere I went with this. The neighbors grass on left, right and across the street all have nice grass. Even the rest of my yard I did NOT use this product on is great and green. ONLY where I used this is where the grass is dead. Never again will I use this company or any sister companies they own. TERRIBLE!
The only plus is that it didn't spread to the rest of my yard or the neighbor's yard...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bgagerz Does what it says
My neighbor suggested I use this and only this. I was a little surprised at the cost. It was almost $50/bag. Much more than other similar products. I followed the directions and my lawn has never been more green than it is right now. All of the neighbors have commented on my yard and noticed how few weeds I have now. It kicked dandelions butt! Clover is proving tough to get rid of in some places but that is the only weed I've noticed. Make sure you put it down when lawn is wet as the directions say. I lucked out and it rained the night before. I will definitely use again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SeniorAdvisor It didn't work on my lawn, dandelions are thriving!!
I have used Scott's products off and on for many years.
I have tried organic products and they have worked pretty well and a year that several weeds appeared I decided to try Scott's again.
For two years in a row now I've put Scott's down in the middle of April and here we are in the beginning of May and this morning I see that my entire backyard is covered in yellow dandelions and....the grass isn't growing all that well.
I would not recommend this product unless you have money to waste.
