This product claims to get rid of weeds on top of feeding the lawn. In addition, Vigoro argues that its product cannot burn the lawn. After one week, and after having followed the instructions, I have some mixed results. Some parts are doing much better with thicker grass and fewer weeds. Some parts are nonetheless completely burnt and in others evil weeds are still thriving.It rained after spreading the product on wet grass and it has been quite warm. I'll keep monitoring but I am most likely to come back to manually taking off the weeds, seeding, fertilizing, and watering. Final tip: if you are getting this bag delivered, don't use a utility knife to open the box: I have managed to slash the bag while cutting the packing tape.

Vigoro Weed & Feed comes in a 15,000 square foot bag. It is applied in a Scotts rotary spreader set at 4.5. On a morning with no rain forecast for two days — the instructions say “no rain or watering for 24 hours”, I applied the Weed & Feed with my Scotts rotary spreader set at 4.5. I had first sprinkled the area of application, about 20 feet by 50 feet, an area with broadleaf weeds, with a hose and spray nozzle. Then the Weed & Feed went on quickly, and I could see that it was sticking to the leaves of the weeds. Some went onto my boots, which I brushed off. The herbicide is taken in by plants through leaves, and it kills weeds because most weeds have broad leaves and absorb plenty of the herbicide, while the grass has narrow blades and does not have much of the herbicide stick to it, even when it is wet. Vigoro Weed & Feed also contains fertilizer to help the grass grow and fill in the spots where the weeds die. Clover dies in one day. After two days, the weeds were curling up, dying from the herbicide. Plantain, the large ear-lobe shape weed that smothers grass, takes several days to die. First its leaves point upward rather than lying flat and smothering surrounding plants; then they curl up, then turn brown and then disappear. It’s fun to watch your lawn improve day by day. It took a full two weeks for some weeds to die, and some did not die. Some of my grass died — I guess I spread too much Weed & Feed in that area. It takes the grass just a week or two with water and sunlight to fill in for one large weed that has been killed. But if you have a predominantly weed area, it will take several weeks. Grass seed or sod will speed the growth of new grass on a bare spot. The Weed & Feed killed many but not all of my weeds, and did kill some grass. Considering the alternatives — hand weeding, or roto-tilling and seeding or planting sod, Weed & Feed is a practical and easy way to remove weeds from the lawn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wolfbane Works well so far
We had a totally dead and parched area of our yard that would not sprout grass seed after a long drought. It was overrun with weeds in the areas that were not just plain hard dirt. I decided to try this weed and feed to see if I could get rid of the weeds and get some grass going as well. So far, so good. It took out the weeds, and you can see in the photo that the grass is beginning to grow as well. Still patchy, but I'm hoping it will spread a bit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PaulN Killed some weeds along with my lawn!
I am extremely disappointed with this product. I was hoping it will kill off the weeds and feed my lawn to make it greener. Instead, it killed my lawn while killing the weeds. I followed the instructions carefully and spread it out on a wet lawn along with using the appropriate setting on the spreader. I have approximately a 10,000 sq.ft. lawn and this bag is advertised to cover 15,000 sq.ft. So considering I have about 1/3 of the bag left, I’m pretty sure used the right amount and setting. It did not rain for the next few days and the weather averaged around 85 degrees that week. It rained a bit later in the week on and off but was mostly warm and sunny. Now, two and a half weeks later most of my lawn has turned patchy yellow instead of green.
The product was shipped to me, so I assumed it was fresh and the most current mix/formula. I noticed that there are many negative reviews about it and also noticed that in Vigoro’s product demo videos they show an updated (different) bag / packaging and a new formula (mix) – both different from what I received. Perhaps they sent me the old & bad mix which ruined my lawn. I compared the “old & new” in the review photos, so take a look.
My Lawn was mostly green before, just now as thick along with various weeds throughout. I am now left with an ugly lawn and hope others will see my review and pay attention to the product they buy. Vigoro was right about “kills down to the roots” and they were wrong about “no burn, guaranteed”. Hopefully Vigoro will own up to this and fix the problem for all the customers who suffered and lost their lawn.

Fantastic Vigoro weed and feed with assurance particle with 15,000 feet of coverage is the perfect solution for any size yard! Within days of applying this weed and feed, I started seeing results! The coverage was consistent and the large bag came well packaged and was durable so that no fertilizer leaked out! Simply add water and watch your yard/lawn transform!

While this isn't the best I've seen at eliminating crab grass, this is the best I've found at getting your yard to turn green. Some of the Weed-n-feed solutions I've used brown the grass as much as the weeds and leave my yard looking blotchy. I think this product does a good job of slowing (not killing) weeds while encouraging bright green grass growth, which works well to hide the weeds.

I have been a home owner for over thirty years. I have very limited funds so when it comes to lawn care I tend to be very frugal. Have a gardener who only cuts and edges my grass so I am left to do what I can to have a nice lawn without weeds popping up all over the place. The other brands of fertilizer that I have been using take care of the grass but not the weeds. Vigaro has what it takes to feed my lawn and take care of the weeds at the same time. This not only saves me time but money as well. The large size bag is also a savings over the smaller sizes.
