About This Product

Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action provides three benefits in one bag. This 3-in-1 formula kills and prevents listed weeds, all while feeding and strengthening your lawn. It kills listed broadleaf weeds like dandelion and clover, and prevents crabgrass for up to 4 months. It also prevents other listed grassy weeds, including barnyardgrass, fall panicum, foxtail, and annual bluegrass. Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action is for use on Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass, Tall Fescue, Fine Fescue, Bermudagrass, Bahiagrass, and Centipedegrass. Apply in the spring before crabgrass appears or after dandelions sprout in your yard. Make sure your grass is wet from dew or sprinkling before applying, as this helps particles adhere to weed leaves to produce the best results. We recommend using a Scotts spreader to apply this product. For Scotts broadcast/rotary spreaders, use a setting of 4 ½. For Scotts drop spreaders, use a setting of 7 ¾. For Scotts Wizz, use a setting of 5. After 24 hours, water the lawn to wash particles onto the soil to prevent the germination of crabgrass. One 20 lb. bag of Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action covers 4,000 sq. ft.

Highlights

  • Prevents crabgrass for 4 months (will not kill existing crabgrass), while also preventing barnyardgrass, fall panicum, foxtail, and annual bluegrass
  • Apply combination weed killer and preventer plus fertilizer to Bahiagrass, Centipedegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Ryegrass, Bermudagrass, Tall Fescue, and Fine Fescue

          Don't waste your money
          Followed directions exactly. Put it down a month ago and I do not notice any difference with the grass and the clover is back growing like crazy! Will not spend this kind of money again with Scott's. The white you see in the pics is the clover flowering! Very disappointing.

          We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action and appreciate your feedback. For best results with controlling existing listed broadleaf weeds, be sure to apply the product when your daytime high temperatures are consistently between 60 to 90°F. For best results, the temperatures should be between 65 and 85°F. Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action should be applied to a wet lawn and allowed to stay on the foliage undisturbed for at least 24 hours without rain or water. Since this post-emergent weed control is initially absorbed through the weed's foliage, we recommend that the weeds not be mowed for two days both before and after the product application. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please reach out to us at 888-270-3714 if we can further assist.
            Horrible result
            I've used Scott's products for more than 20 years with complete success. I began using the Triple Action about five years ago and it worked fine. This year is completely different. I applied in the spring and in the early morning while grass was covered with dew. I used my Scott's broadcast spreader at the setting of 3-1/4 as directed and before rain was forecast for 2 days away. Very disappointed in the results this year as weeds are numerous and clover is everywhere. I can't remember the last time that I had clover in my lawn. Even though the cost of the Triple Action rose dramatically I still used it as it worked quite well. Not so this year. A total waste of my time and money.

            We're sorry to read about your disappointment Scotts Turf Builder Southern Triple Action & Green Max Lawn Food Bundle appreciate your feedback. It does not kill mature crabgrass or other existing weeds. It does not prevent dandelions, clover or most other broadleaf weeds. Apply in early spring before the 3rd or 4th mowing of the lawn. Apply before temperatures reach 80 degrees (crabgrass starts to germinate once temps reach the 80's). It is important to water the lawn immediately after the first 24 hours of the application. This product will only prevent crabgrass and other listed weeds for up 4 months. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please reach out to us at 888-270-3714 if we can further assist.
              Excellent product !
              I originally only bought one bag of the Scott's turf builder triple action because of all the bad reviews. Before I invested a large amount of money I had to test it out for myself. Wow, this stuff is amazing. It killed all the weeds that were currently growing and turned my lawn a beautiful dark green all within a week. I went back and bought 2 more bags to finish the lawn. I am so impressed with this product even with the few clumps in the bag.

                Want to kill your lawn? Use this product.
                Bought this three weeks ago to support newly growing grass. The grass I had planted was growing healthily for 3-4 weeks. I hadn't cut it and was watering regularly as directed. I used a spreader to spread the Turf Builder triple action, followed watering and care directions and within days, grass bleached out and burned. It killed grass that I had spent time, money and effort on and converted something that was looking really nice into a redo. Shame.

                We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action and appreciate your feedback. If seeding or laying sod first, do not apply until the new grass has been mowed 4 times or it will damage/kill the newly seeded grass. We want you to be confident in our products.

                  This product destroyed my lawn.
                  I paid over $8000 to install an irrigation system and a brand new yard for my home. This product completely destroyed my lawn. I emailed Scott’s for information before my purchase. No response… I then bought this as a promotion to be used in conjunction with the turf builder. These two products should ABSOLUTELY NOT BE USED TOGETHER.

                      Disappointed
                      Purchased product at Home Depot on 4/25/24. Applied a few days later after 3rd cut of the season with Turf Builder Edge Guard DLX Push Broadcast Spreader. Applied as per directions. Rained 2 days after application. Since that period, over 3 weeks have transpired, and all the clover and other weeds are growing unimpeded, and lawn isn't greening up. I bought Scotts to avoid this kind of problem. Ridiculous. Request full refund.

                        Product didn’t kill a thing
                        This is a fertilizer and weed killer product. My limited grass is green and growing but so are the weeds. No weeds were killed. None. Zilch. Nada. Wanted to give 1 star in honor of Ryan Trahan.

                        We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action(I) and appreciate your feedback. Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action(I) will kill actively growing broadleaf weeds and prevent grassy weeds that are listed on the label. It will not prevent broadleaf weeds (before or after the application) and it will not kill existing crabgrass or other grassy type weeds. For broadleaf weed control temperatures must be consistently (several days in a row) between 60 and 80°F. For listed grassy weeds to be prevented this has to be applied before the target grassy weeds germinate. The lawn must be wet for the product to stick to the broadleaf weed leaves. It must remain on the weed leaves for 24 hours. After the first 24 hours the product must be watered in, this will help with the prevention of the weeds listed as being prevented such as crabgrass. Weeds may temporarily appear healthier and greener after an application of a weed control. The active ingredients trigger uncontrolled plant growth that causes weed listed on the label to die. You should notice the weeds begin to curl and yellow a few days after application due to this excessive growth. Weeds will die within 2 to 4 week period, depending on temperature conditions. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers.
