Turf Builder 3 lb. 1,000 sq. ft. Starter Brand Lawn Fertilizer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 154.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get Ready To Mow Maryland had an excessive amount of rain in 2017-2018 which led to a lot of soil damage and grass damage. My usual fall planting with soil amendments worked OK but in Maryland you get used to planting seed every fall. I saw Scott's Turf Builder Starter for new grass and gave it a try in the fall of 2018. Results were good but winter set in and growth stopped. I then went out on a limb and tried a winter sowing along with an application of Scott's Starter food. I didn't expect much of a success rate but as soon as Spring showed up, my grass growth exploded. Grass grew where I thought is was impossible and grew it did. I don't know what Scott's secret is but this stuff works, almost too good. I usually mow once a week but now have been mowing twice a week. Expensive but it sure delivers.
