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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PoisonIvy Kills the grass and not the weeds!
Please oh please do not buy this stuff! Applied as directed and it killed my entire beautiful lawn! Called Scotts. They are reimbursing the cost of the weed and feed and paying for new grass seed and turf builder, but I have to do all the hard work! And have to wait 4 weeks before planting seeds. So my lawn looks like a joke! If I could give this negative stars I would!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doug killed grass but fed the weeds
we used this product at the beginning of the summer. the Grass had Weeds and crabgrass maybe 15 percent but in the spring it always looks very nice. now our grass is sparse and gone in patches and we have never had more weeds. in fact the week has taken over 85% of the lawn. it is never looked worse. This product detroyed our lawn and we wil have to start over with new grass

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 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 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...
