The lawn is really green and it helped with the weeds. People have actually comments on how nice the yard looks.

I've always fertilized my lawn with positive results. I gave the summer guard a try to cut down on my water bills; and it turned my entire lawn into a "weeding" frenzy. Hopefully they'll die off after the winter season, and I can start over.

Going into summer I had the best lawn on the block. I live in southern Maryland and got plenty of rain. I also have an in ground sprinkler system for the few weeks we did not get an inch of rain. Like I said a really great lawn going into summer. I put down Scott’s summer guard the first weekend in July and now have brown spots with weeds growing in. My last application of any lawn products was 4 months ago and I followed the directions on the bag letter by letter so I am sure I did not over apply. Come on Scott’s give us weekend warriors a break. You’re killing a lot of good lawns with this current summer guard product.

Applied to my lawn a couple of weeks ago. I have used it in past years with good results. I was cautious
not to over apply. Shortly after applying, I noticed that my lawn was having brown spots. Although I
watered the lawn, it kept getting worse. Now it is really painful to look at

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A3pescar123 This product is sucks!
I am a person who takes pride in maintaining a good looking lawn, I can't say perfect because no one has a perfect lawn their will always have flaws in it regardless. I wish this site had to where you could post pictures of your before the fertilizer was applied and after the fact. I used their Scott's fertilizer spreader read there directions on how to generally apply fertilizer. I took it upon myself to water every morning and every evening just I could have ground and grass a bit saturated prior to applying so that way the grass and ground don't get shocked the day I laid down the fertilizer, morning after I didn't need to water because it was raining the following next morning, what better way to apply fertilizer I said to myself. It had rained for three days not non stop but in the evenings it would have a light shower for about 2 hours and same in the mornings. After the daily percentage of rain went away my lawn started to die in multiple places! I don't just have a story I have pics to back up what I'm expressing by far this a horrible product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Athenskb Minor Yellowing after use
I had read some reviews on this product that had very mixed results. I decided to give it a try anyways since I'd had such good results with other Scotts products. After reading about the coverage issues some people had wrote about and burning, I backed the Scott's rotary spreader down to 3.5 hoping to avoid both the problems stated above. I waited till early evening (when the temp dropped) to apply, then watered for a solid 30 minutes afterwards. Fast forward a week, now I have a mixed green and some minor yellowing happening and 3 or 4 brown spots about a foot wide on my Bermuda sod. I'm hoping with some extra watering I can recover my lawn to how it looked before I used summer guard. I'll be sticking with regular turf builder from now on.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BuzzH Brown Patch fungus after use
Like the gentleman from Maryland, I had a great looking lawn until I used this product. I live in the Nashville, TN area. I applied per instructions back on June 21st and now have brown patch fungus in my entire yard. While I know this product did not cause the brown patch fungus, the nitrogen in the product did not help matters. I have used Scotts products for years and have been very happy. I will continue to use them, However, I will no longer be applying this "Summer" fertilizer.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Steve57 Not so great
Im a big Scotts user but I'm a little disappointed with the results. I applied as recommend and my lawn didn't green up after applying. I have a sprinkler system and have been watering but little results.
May just apply a regular bag of turf builder in a couple weeks.
