Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Zman Burn marks everwhere
Did exactly what instructions said. Have burn marks everywhere in the grass. Called company they told me to keep watering it should go away. Grass is dead everywhere there are burn marks. Now I need to dig up and replace a whole bunch of grass. A lot of extra work. Should have stayed with Scott's. Does not produce a deep green as Scott's very disappointed. And I don't own any animals urinating in the yard to cause this. Hopefully they won't take down this post.

Having moved away from Scotts I did exactly as the instructions said. My experience was like another's who instead saw little effect and a return of crabgrass. What startled me
Is that i aerated in the fall like I always do and figured this would be a great way for it to start off the season with new product.
It's strange even for me to write and say it seems like it made my crabgrass emerge stronger as if I FED it growth food?
I won't let one bad experience sway me.' I just need to find out why it happened. I used the fertilizer last year and it was amazing!

I used this early in march. within two days my lawn was much greener and I have not seen any signs of crabgrass. it worked better than the leading brand and costs much less.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EleEng An Excellent Product for crabgrass and weed control.
I have used Vigoro Crabgrass Preventer Lawn Fertilizer for the last nine years and have been exceptionally pleased with it. I was somewhat disappointed this year to find only the 5,000 square foot bags available. I only treat my lawn once a year and it is with this product. After some trial and error I found that for the best results (southwest Ohio) I need to apply it a few days after the ground has thawed and before the weeds begin to sprout. Do not wait until after the first grass cutting to apply. From then you only need to spot treat the occasional weed throughout the summer. On application, I even cut back the recommended drop spreader setting of seven and a half to seven to get extended coverage and it still provides excellent results; an outstanding product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GMDuramax Lawn looks plush, but doesn't kill weeds.
Well I bought this to try and move away from Scotts, which I apply ever year. I just didn't think Scott's was all that great as a pre emergent Crabgrass preventer, so I thought to give this a try. My initial impressions of it were so so. The granules are pretty big which makes application pretty easy but if you look closely, there was also a lot of "Junk" in the bag. I am assuming it is filler. There were a lot of small stones, almost looked like masonry stone. I thought it was all fertilizer, so I took a small scoop and placed it in a cup of water to see what dissolved and what was left behind was the stone. That was something I was a bit disappointed about, but I am assuming they did that to prevent clumping. Anyways, I applied it in early March. By then, the snow had melted and the ground was thawed out. Upon first look of my lawn, everything was pretty much dead except for the grass. Crabgrass, chickweed, cloves, etc were non existent. So now I had a good baseline. I applied this down and just let it go. Checking on it again today, I'm not impressed with the results. Patches of areas that were just crabgrass are just starting to sprout again, as well as the other broadleaf weeds. I am going to apply another application and see how that goes, but I am going to assume $20 was wasted. I still want to try different brands to see which ones are better, but I know for next growing season, I won't be buying Vigoro products. Live and learn.
