Live in the northeast, Binghamton, NY suburbs. Very dry summer and some small thin spots appeared in the yard. Bought a large bag of Scotts Turf builder grass seed and a bag of the Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass. Spent half a day on hands and knees digging up dead grass, planting seed, covering lightly with soil and placing the Scotts starter food on that and around the edges of bare spots. Threw some more seed on other grass as well as the starter food. This was 2 days before a week of good rains hit our area. Nice rains with lots of sun mixed the same days. After 3-4 days, noticed my grass was dying everywhere I spread the starter food. My lawn looks like a joke now. Nothing grew, Grass was killed off-burnt where I put the starter food. The bag says its good for any type of grass. Bullcrap!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JLN401 Extremely disappointed
I used the starter fertilizer and landscapers mix, some of the seed came up (not even 50%). The new grass turned yellow at root and died after approx 2 wks. I have a lot of time and money in my lawn. I have always used Scott's and never had a problem until this year. Now we are going into 90 degree weather and it's not the ideal time to plant new seed but I have no choice.

Product is horrible this year. I've always used Scott's and never had these problems. Guess I will post on Google.

I just applied Calloway fertilizer(phophorous free 21-0-0) in March 12. Until now March 22 my Bermuda grass still does not look good.
I wonder if I can aplly this Scott product Starter Fertilizer on my existing grass.? It says on the bag "for new grass".
I would appreciate if someone out there let me know if it is ok to apply STARTER FERTILIZER?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rocky67 this product has great features
sorry I have used scotts grass seed many times but this time I had a large area and no time to wait for it to grow so I had to buy sod but after installing it I used scotts starter fertilizer for new grass.I had a few leftover pieces and I put them on my shrub bed which is filled with goose egg rocks, so I laid the sod right over the rocks and fed it starter fertz. low and behold I had to cut the grass 3x with my trimmer and its still looking great in the winter.great great product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ladyfromaflower The only way to go when you want new seeds to grow
This was the secret to growing a lush lawn under a thickly-leaved maple. You still need patients and consistent watering but my neighbors laughed when I tore out the mulch and planted a lawn. That was 8 years ago and, with regular care it is still going strong with no reseeding. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jennifer19 PRODUCT SAVED OUR NEW SOD
We are first time home owners with lawn irrigation and after our initial sod was laid we started having issues with the lawn dying. Not from overwatering, just bad sod. We decided to try Scotts for the first time and at first felt like the product wasn't working and second guessed our decision. Fortunately I changed the watering to evening and withing a week our yard was looking fantastic. Another week later it was even better. Very very happy with this product. Our lawn is the greenest green. Just used the Wintermix,and hoping for similar results.

We decided to plant seed in our yard instead of sod. Not being too aware of how to go about this, (not aware of how horrible the soil is here) I tilled up the soil last year and put in the seed, after about half a year, it grew up very slowly very short length not doing much... I was getting very frustrated, about ready to give up and just get sod. I went to the store and found this starter food and thought I'd give it one last try.. All I have to say is WOW! My grass started getting length and filling in and it looks awesome! I am so glad I decided to try it and save a lot of money on not buying sod! Thank You Scotts!!!
