About This Product

New year, new lawn. Scotts Turf Builder Halts Crabgrass Preventer with Lawn Food pre-emergent weed killer plus fertilizer stops crabgrass before it invades and protects all season long. It also prevents other Listed grassy and broadleaf weeds, including barnyard grass, foxtail, Poa annua, chickweed, and oxalis. The added fertilizer feeds for a fast green-up after winter and helps build strong, deep grass roots. Apply Scotts Turf Builder Halts Crabgrass Preventer with Lawn Food in early spring (prior to 3rd or 4th mowing) when your lawn is dry and before temperatures are regularly in the 80s. We recommend using a Scotts spreader to apply this product. For Scotts broadcast/rotary spreaders, use a setting of 3. For Scotts drop spreaders, use a setting of 6. For best results, the lawn should receive 1/4 in. to 1/2 in. of water from rainfall or watering within 2-3 days after application. Rain, snow, or freezing conditions after application will not affect the performance of this lawn care product. Do not apply to Dichondra and Bentgrass. One 40.05 lbs. bag of Scotts Turf Builder Halts Crabgrass Preventer with Lawn Food covers 15,000 sq. ft.

    A:  Weed killer and weed prevention products such as Scotts Turf Builder Halts Crabgrass Preventer with Lawn Food are not registered for areas where grazing animals feed. Animals may not graze for 1 year after the application as we do not have information about when it would be safe.

          This product does work
          This product will work. I had really bad crabgrass in my lawn when I took over the lawn care. It has taken three seasons of persistence to root out the crabgrass. Yeah. After the first application I thought, hey this stuff doesn’t work. Then the next year I gave it another try. Why not. And it was better. Now this year no crabgrass. But I put it down anyway. Not taking any chances. And as for the lumps, I just smash them with my gloved hand. It’s going to happen.

            clumps that wont break apart!
            Usually this product is pretty good. This year, the bag i received had solid clumps that ended up not breaking apart even when tried by hand...

            We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts Turf Builder Halts Crabgrass Preventer with Lawn Food and appreciate your feedback.

            Any moisture that gets in Scotts Turf Builder Halts Crabgrass Preventer with Lawn Food will make the granules lump together and then it dries out forming hard clumps. If the product is completely solid and cannot be easily broken apart, it should not be used because it cannot be properly applied.

            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 877-220-3089 if we can further assist. Scotts

              Product Arrived Wet in Bag
              I bought a bag of Scotts® Turf Builder® Halts Crabgrass Preventer with Lawn Food 2 weeks ago and kept in dry shed since. Upon opening product today it was wet inside to the degree my broadcast spreader would not function. The color was also a brown shade which seemed abnormal for this product.

                I trust Scotts, have used it for 40 years. I like this turf builder because of the color, the small grains are bright orange, not enough to be seen from the street, but bright enough that I can see it and I usually wait to mow until after it has been dissolved by rain. I'll use Scotts Turf Builder once early may and then late may in Illinois.

                Clumpy with no visible results
                I bought this a cooke weeks ago, clumpy and spent forever to break it up. With well watering, yard is not responding any greener and dandelion weeds starting to pop up. Had much better results with cheaper brand. At this price, I want a refund.

                  should have listened to the rest of the reviews
                  Garbage! That sums up this product in one word. If i cant touch the stuff due to it being hazardous to my health, how do you expect me to deal with a half solidified bag of fertilizer. It took me longer to break up the chunks in the bag so my spreader didn't clog, than it did to spread it in the front and back yard. Although the chunks were most likely too big to actually clog it. From a company that essentially monopolized the fertilizer industry, I would expect a better product. I would rather have the crabgrass than to spend this kind of money for a sub-par product.

                    Scotts is the real deal!
                    I tried the rest, but Scott's Halts (actually of all Scotts products) are the very best! Yes, like everything else, the price of Scotts has risen. Obviously, Scotts has to pay more for end products and labor, just like all businesses do. After spreading "Halts" I give it a good watering with lawn sprinklers. I've gotten bags with clumps in the past as well. I'm sure Scotts does everything they can to keep clumps from forming, but if there's moisture, there's going to be clumps. They break up easily, so no big deal in my opinion. The secret I found out to making Halts work, is to insure you don't edge too deeply next to curbs, driveways, and whatever else. If you do edge too deep, it breaks the "Halts" barrier, and weed seeds can then get a foothold. Once weeds get established, underground rhizomes will start moving and takeover your lawn grasses, causing an ugly mess! I highly recommend Scotts products. I've purchased big box store discount fertilizers, but they can't begin to compete with Scotts. Hoping everyone the best this year!

                      Rocks and moisture in package...poor quality!
                      Higher price, lower quality, there was so much moisture in this package, that the clumps were hard as rocks, very difficult to put through my spreader.

                        Nothing but clumps
                        Not sure why one would go with a premium brand? Scott’s is more expensive than others, but not worth it. Had large clumps that I broke apart with my hands, but still couldn’t even get to spread. What in the picture is so clumped it would not spread on the highest setting. I can even use what is left. Save some money and get something else.
