Scotts Turf Builder Starter Lawn Food can be applied anytime that the grass is actively growing. You would want to check with your local Home Depot store or check the Home Depot website to see when they will have the product available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from jump start your sod nothing get the sod going like Scotts Starter! I put down quite a bit of sod and always use Scotts with great results every time, fast green up and grow in. worth every penny [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for seeding or giving ur lawn a boost I used this when planting seed last year on new topsoil. New seed come up fast and grass grows 2 times faster this year then the rest of the lawn. I was planting some bare spots this year and had some of this starter fertlizer left over so I tried it In a few troubled areas. The grass grows twice as fast in those spots. Not as green as the rest but taller. This is all on clay that is difficult to grow things on. I am gonna try mixing this, Max green, and reg turf builder next feeding. If u want ur lawn to grow fast then this ur stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for New Grass I just had my yard hydro-seeded recently. My yard consisted mostly of clay so I brought in some nutrient rich top soil which was spread around the yard 2-3" deep. After the grass began to germinate and grow, it was obvious that in certain areas the dirt was not spread evenly. The grass was growing slower in those areas (still healthy just slow in comparison to the rest of the yard). So at week 7 of our hydro-seeded lawn I used 'Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass' to help advance these slow growing areas. I followed the instructions on the bag and spread it with a Scotts spreader set to my area. This product work fantastic! We are approaching week 9 and I can see significant growth happening in the slower areas as well as a rich thick grass in all other areas. I plan on using the Starter again in 4 weeks to continue this pattern of growth and build a solid root system for our new fescue grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Stuff! 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!!!
