About This Product

Moss problem? Kill moss, not your lawn with Scotts Turf Builder with Moss Control. This lawn care product kills moss and feeds your lawn to help fill in bare spots and thicken grass, all in an effort to make moss a problem of the past. Apply the combination moss killer and grass fertilizer during winter or spring when moss is actively growing. The product is for use on most grass types and is best applied when the lawn is moist and tall grass has been mowed to expose low growing moss. We recommend using a Scotts spreader to apply this product. For Scotts broadcast/rotary spreaders, use a setting of 5 for the regular rate or 5 ¾ for the heavy rate. For Scotts drop spreaders, use a setting of 8 for the regular rate or 8 ½ for the heavy rate. Grass blades may temporarily turn black after application; however, this condition will disappear after mowing. Always wait 6 to 8 weeks between applications. One 25 lb. bag of Scotts Turf Builder with Moss Control covers up to 5,000 sq. ft.

Q:I want a product that prevents moss. I only see products that kill moss.
by|Nov 15, 2022
4 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  I had a lot of moss in our small back yard. This product did kill it and I have seen only one small spot return. As far as a prophylactic, maybe Scott's can give a definitive answer.

by|Nov 16, 2022

    A:  I'm not aware of any product that prevents moss, since moss is due to moisture and shade. I was not successful killing moss in my lawn with this product.

    by|Nov 20, 2022

      A:  You should email Scotts directly with the question of how to prevent moss

      by|Nov 20, 2022

        A:  Moss grows in a lawn due to weak grass, moisture, acidic and compacted soil. Fixing these issues in your lawn will stop moss from growing. We do not have a product to prevent moss from growing.

              Q:can it be apply when the lawn is just being reseed?
              by|Apr 10, 2021
              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  Do not apply to a newly seeded or sodded lawn until it has been mowed 4 times.

              by|Aug 5, 2021

                A:  Yes, but be sure not to get Turfbuilder with weed control. Better yet, use a high phosphorus fertilizer to promote root growth.

                Did Not Work For Me. Very Disappointed.
                I bought and used 4 bags about 2 weeks ago and the moss is still alive and thriving. Very disappointed and a colossal waste of money as very little moss has been killed (see attached pictures). I followed all the instructions. I used vinegar last year and should have done so this year.

                  Good
                  I added this fertilizer for the first time in early March, the moss started dying on the second day. Added again in late April. Now it is early May. Have not started watering the lawn yet, and have to mow the lawn twice a week now - the grass grows quickly. There is still some moss left, but it'll probably go away as the summer kicks in.

                    Perfect shade fertilizer
                    This is the only product that works in my dense shade lot, controls moss, and I have the greenest grass. A professional lawn care service told me I would never have grass because of shade and moss! This is the result of using this product for 2 years.

                    Unbelievable!
                    I ordered three bags of Scott’s moss control to start trying to deal with the severe moss problem I have after years of neglect. In part to test the product and break up what I thought would be a lot of labor. After applying the product my intentions were to allow the moss to die off, then Rake up the remains and over seed the entire area. Moss died quickly but life gets busy and didn’t get back to the project for nearly 2 weeks. During this time I noticed the grass turning a beautiful dark green color but to my surprise when I finally walked around the lawn, grass was filling in everywhere! I may still rake and seed some spots but I saved a lot of labor and seed $ with this project and being patient. The pictures I have attached are amazing! Two angles of same spot in my yard, three weeks after application and only rainfall. I didn’t rake or over seed this area at all! Thank you so much for this product scotts!

                    Not the product line it use to be!
                    Hello, I used Turf Builder with Moss control. The grass greened up a little, but the moss is still in grass in abundance. I think was it’s another gimmick to sell more fertilizer because it did not work at all not even a little. Scott’s use to be a product that you depend on for making great products, but not so much anymore.

                        It lumped up and plugged up in my spreader. I had to go around my yard and throw it on by handfuls. It made me feel angry, but I couldn’t return it since it was all in my spreader. Grrrrr

                        We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts Turf Builder Moss Control and appreciate your feedback. Products can absorb moisture if stored where water can get on them or if they are shipped in humid conditions. We do suggest trying to use wet products, you will not get the proper coverage.
