    Q:Can I lay this product down and then lay the sod on top of it? I will incorporate some of the product with the top mix.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Apply Scotts Turf Builder Starter Lawn Food for New Grass over the soil and lightly rake it into the soil with a leaf rake. Only apply the product one time to the area so you do not over fertilize and damage the sod.

      A:  I wouldn't recommend that. You want this to dissolve over time and filter through the soil. If you put it under you will probably burn the roots of the sod because it will be to strong a concentration.

        A:  Hi Sean. Thank you for your question. As the previous reply stated, you could apply the Scott Starter Fertilizer this way, but it would be safer if it was applied on top and then watered in. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

            I don’t know what happened, but used this coz I followed scotts advice when you plant new Bermuda grass seeds. I used it few times already for 6 weeks, but nothing is happening. There’s more weeds than Bermuda too.

            We're sorry to hear Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass didn't perform as expected. This product should only be applied 1 time when seeding and then can be applied again after 4-6 weeks. Reach out to us here for assistance with our product guarantee: https://tinyurl.com/y8nvfsca
              Incredible
              We used this on our yard in mid September when we aerated and seeded our yard. Our grass currently looks incredible! Our neighbors grass is starting to turn brown and ours in greener than ever. It is so thick and lush. We were so impressed that yesterday we but down Scott’s Winterguard Weed & Feed. So excited to see how that works - especially since chickweed started to creep in a few weeks ago!

                Really great!
                This product is really great, after 3 days of application my grass is green I’m very happy with the results!

                  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.
