I put it down as directed and then I got a spike in temperatures. It's been above 90 since application. Will it work?

Answer: 
The daytime high temperatures should not go above 90 degrees. The Turf Builder Weed & Feed can cause damage to the lawn if applied when daytime temperatures exceed 90 degrees and it will not effectively kill weeds at this temperature. The weeds will shut down to conserve energy and will not absorb the weed control.

Answer: 
The high temperature should not effect the product. However, keep in mind that you may not see the full effect for several weeks, so you must be patient, as the weed-killing component of the product is not immediate.

Howdy Dan,
The effectiveness of Roundup declines at temperatures above 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
You could spray early morning to get best results.

Answer: 
Howdy Dan,
For optimal results, Roundup® brand products are best applied at temperatures of 60 degrees F and above, and when the air is calm, in order to avoid spray drifting onto plants you don't want harmed.
However, the effectiveness of Roundup declines at temperatures above 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
Happy hunting,
Coach Dave

Answer: 
If Turf Builder Weed & Feed is accidentally applied to st. augustine grass damage may occur. To prevent and minimize damage we recommend to water the lawn every 2-3 days for 30 minutes. We recommend to continue watering for 3 weeks. Given time most lawns will recover. If you have any additional questions, please call 877-220-3089.

Answer: 
I doubt it. St. Augustine grass would not be considered a broadleaf weed. Depending upon where you are located, you may experience some browning. Don't worry, as cooler weather should result in some greening back up in your lawn. Good luck to you. And next spring, try a pre-emergent at a time recommended by your county agent. That way, you don't have to worry about post-emergent control next time Read More

Answer: 
Not sure where you are located George, but I wouldn't do more than two applications in one year. I'm in Georgia and I found that if you see weeds remaining after 6-8 weeks after your first application you could apply a second round. I would only do that if the weed problem was still severe. I also like to apply that product when the ground is slightly damp/wet so that it adheres better on application.

I re-seeded my lawn 2 weeks back - to be precise, I re-seeded the bare spots left during my original seeding of the lawn (Yes, I am trying to create lawn from scratch). Some of the grass has started growing and some of it is still young. Is it okay to use this weed and feed? Will it affect my current lawn?

You can check package directions, but I would NOT do it yet. I don't think your new grass has had enough time to get established. To be on the safe side, I would wait another two weeks. It won't make that much difference in the weeds currently there, but it will make a difference in your new grass, which you do not want to stress at this early stage.

5,000 sq. ft. Turf Builder Weed and Feed Zero Phosphorus Fertilizer is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 1437.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from From mowing weeds to mowing grass Very pleased with the results as expected. Applied the product Memorial Day with excellent results. Now that Labor Day is approaching I'm ready to put it to work once again. I'm confident that by next Spring/Summer I'm expecting a 98% weed free lawn. Very happy with the product. Follow the directions and you will see positive results. I'm mowing grass now as opposed to mowing weeds. Hey, maybe next year I'll be the lawn of the month which our town gives out to homeowners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product After 2 applications my lawn was basically weed free and very green. Just make sure you apply when ground is wet so the granules can stick to the weeds.
Date published: 2016-07-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results over time We needed to restore our total lawn of two acres. The lawn was covered with weeds and weak grasses with bare spots all over. Over a steady regiment of three years, with just two applications a year, we now have a lush grass lawn. We pulled plugs once a year and seeded with Scott sun & shade seed. It takes some time and attention with patience. But if you stay steady and work with the proper mowing techniques, fertilize with Scott products and applying granulated lime to control the PH, the results will come.... Please note, here in Michigan, seems the best combination is Scott fertilizers and the granulated lime simply twice a year ( early spring and mid-fall )

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time and money I always use Ortho spray weed killer for my yard and then apply Scotts lawn feed without the weed killer. I thought I would save some time and money and buy the new and improved Weed and feed. I saved time but I now have 6 little clover patches that I didn't have before plus the 3 dandelions are still there. I also experienced brown streaking in my yard. The last time that happened to me was 18 years ago when I first started with yard care and didn't have a clue as to what I was doing. I have learned a lesson don't ever use a weed and feed product they just don't work and don't cut corners it will bite you in the bum everytime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product works but slowly Clover killed fast but it speeds up Dandelion growth at first... takes 3 weeks or more to kill the Dandelions ..
Date published: 2016-04-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great dandelions gone in a little over 1 week Had major dandelion this year after last year I was dandelion free. Lot of seeds from neighboring yards. I put this down on a Saturday by next Sunday you could visibly see the dandelions dying. About 3 days after and 1 more mowing the lawn looks dandelion free. I'm not sure how the others with the negative reviews are using but I followed direction to a T. I just really don't like the price point. But I didn't want to go with a different brand since last year I used this as well with same results.
Date published: 2016-04-25
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised. I purchased this product because I was struggling to get rid of a few weeds. I normally NEVER buy a weed ad feed together, but because I trust Scott's, andthe weeds weren't responding to any other treatments, and the new formula intrigued me...so I gave this product a try. I followed instructions as usual, and so far (2 weeks after application) the only results I've seen are a few browned weeds surrounded by burnt & dying grass. I've worked really hard to grow a beautiful lawn, & now everyday I pull in my driveway I see more & more of my lawn dying. Due to this experience, I won't ever use this product, or a weed & feed combo again. Back to square one I guess...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope! We applied this to our lawn as directed on the bag and used a spreader(Scott's) per the directions as well. Two weeks later, dandelions are not even close to being gone plus there's more! Our yard is also striped....light green and dark green. Like it burnt some of the grass? Never had that happen before. This product does not work as advertised on the bag and we followed the directions. The Scotts spreader was nice and worked as expected.
