          Last fall worked great, very little weed pressure
          I used this last fall to great success , and will use it today when I overseed. Southern Belle TTTF / Texas Bluegrass blend from Mountain View Seeds... The Meso in this fert can leave a bleaching effect on existing turf , as it grows out and is mowed it will return to its green glory. To all who leave the negative reviews...do a little research 1st , prepare & decide whats rite for your lawn....a nice lawn isnt a sprint, its a marathon!!! lol , good luck to all , have a great Fall!!!

            Dead patches
            Like others have said, this product has resulted in giant dead patches in my lawn. I have regularly used Scotts weed and feed products in the past and this has never happened

                Good Product, but check bag weight
                Bought 6 bags, 2 of them were missing over 2lbs of product. At this price, the bags should contain 17.2 lbs of product.

                  Miraculous!
                  My lawn has never looked so good! No weeds or dandelions! I was amazed at how well it worked, and convinced once I looked across the street and saw my neighbors mine field of dandelions standing tall and straight! This is the only kind I will buy and have convinced my adult sons as well.

                  DO NOT USE THIS STUFF
                  Some thing is wrong with this Fertilizer. I used it this spring on Kentucky BG I planted last fall, on new spot seeding and older lawn. Noticed odd yellowing in spots of healthy grass.The grass blades had yellow streaks. there is Healthy grass next to these yellow bits. I moved clumps of healthy grass to clear a garden area and planted seed around the clumps. The clumps developed the yellow as did the perimeter of a larger new seed area. Noticed dead periwinkle with yellow bladed grass on the border of a health patch of grass planted last fall. Noticed some patches are getting green again probably as rain cleans the soil. Not from over watering or too much fertilizer etc.

                    Worked very well as a starter fertilizer. Used it after about three weeks of seed germination. Put it down after first cut and it evenly thickened and greened up the entire seeded area within 8 days. I liked the fact that it also had a mild weed and feed as an added feature. Keep in mind that I watered almost everyday it did not rain.

                    Prevented grass seed germination
                    I used this product during spring over seeding and almost none of the grass seed germinated. It also didn’t prevent crab grass. The Scott’s grass seed I used was full of creeping charley which has infested my lawn, garden beds, and crept into both neighbors lawns.

                      Disappointed...should have used Halts...
                      I've been a Scotts guy for decades...sorry to see Scotts all of a sudden change the bag size to 4k instead of standard 5k...but more disturbing is how it actually is killing (turning white) my existing grass...sad, but true...for those of us that really work diligently on our lawns (aerated spring & fall, thatched in fall, use a Scotts spreader...saw this new product...even purchased higher end grass seed (90%tall fescue & 10% bluegrass)for fall & this spring...then this happens...ugh...try to wash it out to save my lawn...time will tell.. Time to go to tenacity...too much work & cost...turned many people on to Scotts...don't have the confidence anymore...Morganite won't burn...get a 4 gallon battery powered back pack sprayer (Chapin) and choose something that won't burn your grass...in the meantime, better go light on your spreader setting with this product...
