It works!
I put this product down about a week ago. When I purchased it I didn't purchase enough and could only do half of the back yard. You can see the difference between the treated and untreated parts of the lawn. It works!

    I don’t know what happened, but used this coz I followed scotts advice when you plant new Bermuda grass seeds. I used it few times already for 6 weeks, but nothing is happening. There’s more weeds than Bermuda too.

    We're sorry to hear Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass didn't perform as expected. This product should only be applied 1 time when seeding and then can be applied again after 4-6 weeks. Reach out to us here for assistance with our product guarantee: https://tinyurl.com/y8nvfsca

      The starter fertilizer was purchased to apply to some new sod that was laid in the yard recently. It was easy to apply. I needed to get a quick application prior to the growing season. The grass is looking good, and I wanted to make sure that I applied the fertilizer so that I could get it going before the growing season so that I could get the grass established. It is still early in the growth season, so I didn't expect to see quick results.

      Incredible
      We used this on our yard in mid September when we aerated and seeded our yard. Our grass currently looks incredible! Our neighbors grass is starting to turn brown and ours in greener than ever. It is so thick and lush. We were so impressed that yesterday we but down Scott’s Winterguard Weed & Feed. So excited to see how that works - especially since chickweed started to creep in a few weeks ago!

        Success so far...
        I combined the Awesome and Tough Grass Seeds, applied on August 30, 2020 and along with a combination of the Scotts Starter fertilizer and Scott Turf Builder Root-Trients, fertilizing August 30, September 13 and September 27, 2020; using less than the recommended amount of fertilizer resulting in no burns; photo on the left August 30, 2020 and photo on the right October 12, 2020. The true test will be next year summer to see if this turf will hold up.

        Not too shabby...
        I put down Scott’s grub control the same day I put down Scott’s starter fertilizer. I am currently growing grass in my back yard and thought why not try to spruce up the front yard. I watered every morning for over 2 weeks. I am noticing greener grass even on the sod on my devil strip. This summer in Ohio we had multiple days with 90 degree days and I was able to grow grass. I gave this a 4/5 because honestly, it didn’t work fast enough in the heat and I had to water it for a few weeks.

          Very disappointed. Less than half of the seed has germinated. We followed the label directions to the letter. We contacted Scott's regarding the guarantee and have not heard anything back. We would not recommend this product at all.

            I planted this grass 17 days ago. On the bag it says, grows 70% thicker and 35% quicker. I made sure to water it daily. The grass has still not germinated even though the bag says it will, within 10 days.
