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.

TurfBuilder 16 lb. 5,000 sq. ft. Starter Fertilizer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

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 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 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 First time user, what a difference I got a small package when I bought some seed and I figured I would try it. Well it was fantastic. I have always had trouble getting new seed to start an take hold and this starter worked so well I bought a big bag the next time.
