I have a very small townhouse yard 68 Sq Ft, I have patches of grass and weeds. How to I start a new lawn? I saw this Turf builder, would I seed first or put turf builder down first? Do I need to do anything to the soil first?
Asked by: Bonnie
HI Bonnie, I download the Scotts app and put the information on about my yard on the app and they give you recommendation. It will tell you what to add and when to add it if you need water etc... Please give them a try.

I have a few questions: I am set to close on a new home this coming Friday, and the seller laid new bermuda sod around early March. To my knowledge a starter fertilizer was not laid when the sod was laid down. Is it okay to put this fertilizer out even a month or so after the sod is laid? And is there a certain watering schedule recommended for this product? I'm assuming it needs to be watered in after spreading it on the lawn. Also, how long after this product is spread can you put out another fertilizer? And how long after this product is spread can you put out a weed and feed? Thank you!
Asked by: Jay
Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass can be applied anytime after sodding the lawn. The phosphorus will encourage the root growth of grass. You should be sure that your lawn receives an inch of rain or water a week.You should not apply any herbicide products until your sod has been mowed at least 4 times, at that point the lawn would be considered mature. You also would not want to apply another fertilizer product until 6-8 weeks after applying Starter Fertilizer.

Is this also a crabgrass preventer ? I don’t want to purchase if it germinates seeds into crabgrass later down the road

Asked by: Mondo
No it is not a crabgrass preventer. It is a new grass fertilizer, which you can add to new seeds you plant. To prevent crabgrass, you can spread a crabgrass preventer fertilizer over your new seedlings after 1 month.

15 lb. 5,000 sq. ft. Turf Builder Starter Brand Fertilizer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 227.

I recently laid many squares of new grass on approximately 2 inches of topsoil. I watered it in well. Worried that I was missing something, I consulted with a Garden Associate at Home Depot. The associate recommended Turf Builder Starter and explained what to do and what to expect. The results were amazing after just a few weeks! The new sod grew and turned a vivid green! Of course daily watering helps too. I would highly recommend this product for new grass or newly planted sod. It works wonders!

I got two bags of this stuff and found out that the fertilizer on the inside was wet in the bag that I opened. The other bag is probably the same because it too is puffy and I feel stupid for buying the bags looking like they did. Do not buy this stuff if the bag looks really full, that is an indication that the fertilizer on the inside is wet and will not pass through any spreader. I am going back to Home Depot tomorrow and return the bag that I did not open.

Put this fertilizer out only a few days after over seeding the yard and boy did it make a big difference. The grass started growing much quicker than in the past and the entire yard greened up like crazy. Now, the young grass is coming in much thicker and ever and did not harm it at all. Thanks Scotts!

I prepared my lawn and used the product as instructed, but it seems it turned my yard into a valley of dead grass instead of a plush and green lawn.
