Questions & Answers

Does this inhibit newly applied grass seed from germinating??

My husband was sent to pick up some Scott's Starter Fertilizer for a newly planted section of our yard; he ended up buying the kind with weed preventer. He had it completely spread before I noticed the "plus weed preventer" on the bag. If this prevents crabgrass and dandelions won't it also stop our grass seed from sprouting? The overview of the product seems to indicate you could apply it when seeding but I find it hard to believe it wouldn't inhibit the desired grass seed from sprouting. Can you verify?
Asked by: NJ
In spots where I ran out of this fertilizer the new grass did come in thicker and greener. The new grass in areas treated with this fertilizer did eventually come up but it was light pink in color.

I applied this fertilizer a week after aeration/overseeding of my lawn. The product says to water the lawn after application. However, i applied this product few hours before the rain and it rained a lot for few hours. What is the probability that this product will perform or does it washed away with the heavy rain. Please advise.
Asked by: Vinay
The product must be watered in to activate it. Unless there was a torrential downpour, the application should not have been washed away.

How long after application before dogs can use the area? I know it's better to keep the dogs off new grass but...

I'd rather ask to certain
Asked by: TBinWI
After the application, water the lawn and allow it to dry. Once dry, your pets can reenter the area. Try to minimize traffic on a newly seeded area, though, until the new grass has become established.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be working well We have had a lot of rain this year. I am sure that is helping our lawn grown better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this for the first time this year on a part of my front yard that had very week grass last... I used this for the first time this year on a part of my front yard that had very week grass last year. My soil test results suggested starting a new lawn or using products with a ratio of 4-4-3, 5 times a year. Since I could not find a store bought fertilizer with those numbers, someone suggested a more readily available 10-10-10 mix or starter fertilizer (much higher ratio but it was on sale and had weed preventer). I used this product once late June/1st of July. This was after putting scotts crabgrass preventer down in early may followed by a second treatment of regular starter fertilizer early June. End result, the front part of my lawn that was week has looked incredible most of the season now. It has been lush, green and 95% weed free (no crabgrass). The other portion of my lawn ended up with about 40% weeds and lots of crabgrass. The only delta was the treatment with this product the first of july. I am going to repeat my treatments next year especially on the side of the yard that had a lot of crabgrass and see what happens !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind I applied Scott's Turf Builder Starter Food For New Grass Plus Weed Preventer as well as Scott's Contractor Grade Grass Seed Easter Weekend. Using Scott's Wizz it was quick and east to apply both products. With the gentle rain that we had the past few days I am already seeing my yard green up and I know that soon I will see healthy shoots of new grass emerging. I feel confident that my lawn will be weed free as well. Using Scott products regularly helps get and keep my yard picture perfect. With the help of Scott products my yard has gone from looking sad to becoming the one everyone walks by and admires. Considering that I knew nothing about taking care of a yard, since using Scott products and following their suggestions I am feeling more and more confident each year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy lawn My yard was in need of some TLC after a dry last summer. I just placed Scotts Turf Builder Starter food on my areas of my lawn where I need to rebuild the damaged sections.Along with more grass seed I added the mix and as the package stated, in six weeks my lawn begin to grow back and even thicker than before and has cut down on weeds in my lawn! Thanks Scotts, I will continue to use your products! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! It is super that Scotts has combined starter fertilizer with weed preventer. The toughest part of growing grass from seed is keeping the weeds out. Same as starting a garden. No longer! This stuff works. My grass started quick and no weeds! About time someone was able to get something gentle enough to work with seedlings, and strong enough to prevent weeds. This is a total win. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Grass Fertilizer I have been using Scott's fertilizer for years. When I had to plant new seed in a large area in my backyard, I saw this product and decided to give it a try. If you ever planted new seed, it comes in very fine and fragile, this Starter Fertilizer really enhanced the growth of the new seed, creating a thick, lush new lawn.
