Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Dan
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.

Will it kill my St. Augustine grass

I applied and didn't realize it's not for St. Aug grass. Will it kill it ?
Asked by: Rob
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.

Is it okay to use this 2 weeks after re-seeding the lawn?

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?
Asked by: Manish
You cannot apply Scotts Turf Builder Weed & Feed to the newly seeded or sodded lawn until the grass is up and growing and has been mowed at least 4 times.

Customer Reviews

Turf Builder 14.53 lb. 5M Weed and Feed is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1437.
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 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 ..

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thousands of Homes I build homes for a large volume home builder in the West. Over the last twenty years I have personally handled thousands (no fib) of homes from dirt to completion. I use Scotts product on my personal property nearly exclusively. I share this with the bulk of my interested homeowners and neighbors. I see there are reviews of these fertilizers where people have not achieved their desired results. I too have had failures in my own yard that I wanted to ascribe to the products I have applied, only to find out that it was my application method that was the culprit. Fertilizers are not a miracle cure for otherwise poor yard management practices. Care, time, recognition, consistency. I know that when I apply a Scotts product, per the directions on the bag, three days later I can see it's working and a week later it has done exactly what I thought it would. This "weed and feed" has been no exception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance as advertised! I usually have bad experiences with lawn care products. Expecting failure I saved my receipt because of the satisfaction warranty. I had a lot of dandelions and clover as well as many other unidentified weeds that were sadly creeping into my yard. I applied exactly as the direction described allowing the lawn to be wet prior to applying. I did not mow the lawn immediately before but rather applied it about three days after mowing. 2 mows later I have almost zero weeds. I applied a liquid concentrate mix using a tank sprayer to the small amount of weeds that remained and my yard is now almost weed free. Other notes. I applied in early June prior to extreme heat.

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.

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.
