Product Overview

Apply Turfbuilder with Summerguard in summer to feed the lawn and protect against listed bugs. Regular feeding provides the nutrients your lawn needs to look its best. Late spring feeding prepares grass for summer stress by thickening the blades on top and building deep roots below.

  • Kills and protects against listed bugs
  • Your lawn will begin to wilt when water is needed. Take advantage of nature's sprinkler and rely on the rain to water your lawn.
  • A healthy lawn can clean the air, produce oxygen, prevent runoff and reduce soil erosion
  • Safe for all grass types
  • Won't burn lawn - guaranteed

Answer: 
Depends what type of grass you have. Summergaurd is great on St. Augustine. Really greens it up and no cinch worms. St. Augustine is a broad leaf grass. So be careful what you use. Read the label on Scotts fertilizer. Use one that says good for as all grass.

Answer: 
Summerguard really only helps by building turf to overshadow the weeds and kills bugs. This fall and winter try WinterGuard with Weed Control Fertilizer. Then in spring switch to Scotts Turf Builder Fertilizer with Plus 2 Weed Control, then go back to summerguard for summer. They say dandelions aren't actually weeds and that they produce nitrogen that feeds lawns, but I like the just grass look.

Answer: 
SummerGuard helps grass to be thick and lush, which does help prevent new weeds from getting started. However, it does not have anything in it to kill weeds that are already there. If you want to use a weed killer this time of year, make sure you are expecting temperatures under 85 degrees.

Answer: 
Hi Dandalion Queen,
Love your screen name.
TurfBuilder SummerGuard is fertilizer with insecticide added to it. There is no herbicide, or weed killer in SummerGuard.
Apply Scott's Weed-B-Gon to the dandelions to kill them. The liquid will enter the weeds through their leaves to kill them, roots and all. It takes a few weeks to see results, but it works, guaranteed.
Apply fertilizer as you normally Read More

Answer: 
You can but it is not a good idea. You will get it on your shoes and track it around. Best to do it on dry grass. And then you can water it. Always read your labels 0n Scotts fertilizers before you buy. Summergaurd is great on St. Augustine. I have been using it for years. St. Augustine should be mowed close or it will mat up in a few years and then it will have to be thatched.

Answer: 
Hi HEdward, you're right. The lawn should be dry. Then you water thoroughly to activate the product, according to Scotts web page.
http://www.scotts.com/smg/goprod/turf-builder-with-summerguard/prod100066
You will want to apply product using a spreader. This way distribution will be even. Apply June-August.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 106 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ruined My Lawn 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 June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Due to scotts summer gaurd. I am currently the only one who has a green yard in my neighborhood. Scotts Weed and Feed, Scotts Green Max followed up by Scotts Summer Gaurd made great results.My neighbors are very jealous. One happy customer here. Thank you. July 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Burnt my lawn I live in a rather drought free area. I applied the summer guard according to the label instructions and also watered my lawn daily for two weeks just to insure the lawn would not be burned by the summer guard. we have also had frequent summer downpours to give additional watering also. After two weeks, my lawn showed no improvement yet, it was burned. It is really hard to burn Bermuda grass, I do not understand what lawn treatment would do this if it is safe for children and pets also. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lawn looks so much better Last year my lawn turned brown by July and stayed that way all summer. I watered but couldn't keep up. Who would think it would be an issue in Seattle?! A couple of weeks ago I saw the lawn was starting to turn again so I applied the summer guard, going it would help. I've watered a few times and we had a free days of rain-- but two weeks later our lawn is nearly uniformly green again. Amazing! June 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ruined my lawn We bought this and sprayed to our lawn just like the instructions said. In couple of days there were brown spots all over. It damaged our whole lawn. Terrible product. Please don't buy. May 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does what it claims. Does even more than I expected. Lawn looks superb. May 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Killed my lawn I was advised to use this on my lawn in Las Vegas for the summer. One week later, 80% of my lawn is crispy brown! I don't even know what to do at this point to fix it. I Do not recommend this product. June 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a magic!! I've used Scotts product 2 yrs ago. The Yellow bag Turf builder Weed and Feed burned my lawn and never used it again. But then this year i decided to give it another try with more reading of the instructions and I think that was the reason why it didn't work. It's all in the timing and the right stuff for the lawn. My grass used to be yellowish with balding so I went to the garden section and picked this product up since it is the summer and it just makes sense. Within a week and half my lawn revived and greener than ever with lush. I've already recommended it to my co-workers and I plan to use the Winterguard in the Fall then Turbuilder with Hatls in the spring. My wife said i'm going crazy with the lawn and the frequent visits to HD. Everyday you come home from work and right before you pull in to your driveway, would'nt you want to come home to a beautiful sight? August 5, 2014
