15 lb. 5,000 sq. ft. Turf Builder Starter Brand Fertilizer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 249.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Southern Lawn- new installed Zoysia Sod An amazing product! I applied it days four after Zoysia turf install. It really gave the new Zoysia sod a jump start to growth in the heat of the summer. This product is incredible! I recommend this as a starter as well as a regular fertilizer when lawns are starting to go “sideways”. The quick results are phnominal!

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.

Turfbuilder: Food for New Grass accelerated the growth of the new grass and help maintained the health & vibrancy of the existing grass. I would recommend this fertilizer for any lawn with bare spots and brown grass to use with grass seeds & topsoil when trying to fill those spots in a timely manner.

I use this stuff on my Bermuda every year because it works so good and never burns my yard ! Turns my grass a deep dark green looks great!! I just wish they offered a bigger bag. You CAN use this on established grass because that’s what I do and works great!

It really helped to green it up and feed the new little grass plants! We didn't have the greatest soil, so this was a good purchase! Planning to buy it again to apply in 6 weeks.
