One and Done!
I have used Scott’s products for several year with great satisfaction. I started using Scott’s Turf Builder Southern Triple Action just over a year ago. My lawn has never been more green, less weeds than every before and insects are thing of the past. I like the one and done feature. I apply it every quarter year around. No more buying several different products to accomplish the same thing as one application of the Southern Triple Action.
by Rayjay
what garbage
So I decided this year to pay a premium and skip doing two steps of fertilizer and then insecticide with competitive products that are cheaper. I got home items the bag and found big lumps that I couldn't break apart very easily. The last thing I wanted and shouldn't have to do is stick my hands in this stuff to try and use it. Never again!

Good Results
I bought and treated my lawn in April for the Spring and Summer weed and feed. My yard was the greenest on this side of the neighborhood. I received alot of compliments. I did have to look out for weeds especially as the wind blew carrying the seeds. I'm super excited to see what my lawn will look like next Summer maintaining and treating it this Fall and Winter.

Had Bigger Hopes
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was offered Scotts Turf Builder Southern Triple Action to try on our yard. The three main claims we only had success with one. We did have less ants but clover was still present and our grass did not look fuller or healthier. We do live in South Texas but had plenty of rain and no heat wave. I am not sure this particular turf builder is right for me

Response from Consumer ServiceOct 16, 2020
Our apologies that you didn't have the results you expected after using Scotts Turf Builder Southern Triple Action. This product does not prevent new weed development only kills weeds that were actively growing at the time of application. If weeds are not getting regular watering they can not absorb product. The most common reason a lawn does not respond to fertilizer is soil pH. Soil pH must be between 5.5-7.5 for fertilizer to be absorbed by grass. A continued or general yellow look may indicate a lack of iron. We do stand behind our products with a guarantee. At your earliest convenience, feel free to contact us at 1 (888) 270-3714. Refer to this review when calling.
Healthy lawn
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I put this product down about two weeks ago and my yard loves it. I always have neighbors come up to me and ask how do I keep my yard so lush and green and my answer is still the same. I tell them that I follow the 4 seasons fertilizer schedule with some maintenence as needed depending on weather conditions.

Worked quick!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The product worked quickly! I was struggling with a lot of weeds. My grass is very thin on the sides of my house, the weeds actually made it look full and lush, but they were weeds. So I applied this product and it cleared out all they weeds. They started wilting very very fast and were gone within a week.

Great triple treatment for St. Augustine!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have St.Augustine grass in south Texas. Here in the far south, we always have long and touch summer! Drought and heat, weed, and fire ants are our enemies through all the growing season. This triple treatment is perfectly designed for us. I would highly recommend using this product in the early fail. The fertilizer analysis of this product is 29-0-10, which is really good to me: Nitrogen (29) is good for the top growth (green grass blades) and the Potassium (10) is great for developing the deep roots. The active ingredient of the weed killer is Atrazine, which can NOT be used to bermudagrass, but it's very helpful for the St.Augustine and Zoysia grass. It can be acted as both Post- and Pre-emergent for stopping the weeds. The active ingredient of the ant killer is Bifen, which is a very common and powerful ingredient for killing the bugs and ants. The pictures shown are the results after applying the product for 5 days. We did have good rain right after spreading the product, which is critical for activating the product and making it work. Highly recommend! And I will use this product to replace the other products to do the 'winterize' application.

Easy/Effective
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Turf: St Augustine / Bermuda Texas ; avg temp 97 – Minimal Rain. Applied at setting 4 on Scotts Handheld Spreader. Applied 2 weeks ago. Several days after applying started seeing Lawn Moths. To be fair, they may have matured before application. But could not risk it so applied some Ortho Bug B Gone granules. Now the lawn looks very good. Weed free, bug free, and green.
