The turf builder with the Haltz Crabgrass preventer is just that for crabgrass. I could be wrong but I don't believe it will work on the weeds. You do need to get the crabgrass preventer done before it gets warm because if the crabgrass starts growing, you will be wasting your time and money. Then when the weeds and dandelions start up, you can then put on the weed and feed. The weed and feed needs to stick to the weeds in order to work. The crabgrass goes right into the soil and kills the crabgrass before it has a chance to start. Hope that helps.

What product can I use to get rid of crabgrass in my lawn and when can I put in down?

Poor quality product
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I have used Scotts products for decades but in the past two years the crabgrass preventer has failed miserably. I have the worst crabgrass infestation in the neighborhood despite using the Turf Builder with Halts in the early spring. I planted the lawn by hand five years ago and it was beautiful for three years. Then I used the Turf Builder Triple Action with terrible results. Hundreds of crabgrass clumps emerged and I dug many up and used spray to kill many others. This year I used the Turf Builder with Halts and had the same lousy result. I believe that Scotts has changed the formula for the pre-emergent because I never had these problems in the past.

Response from Consumer Service August 25, 2020
We are sorry that the Scotts Turf Builder with Halts Crabgrass Preventer did not prevent crabgrass as expected. To get the best results from Turf Builder with Halts Crabgrass Preventer, it should be applied before weed seeds germinate. It will not kill existing weeds. Do not aerate or dethatch the lawn after using crabgrass preventers as this will break the product barrier in the soil, and the product will fail. 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 contact us to see what can be done.

Normally like Scotts products but my last bag (4/20) had solid clumps in it that I couldn't break up. More than the picture shows. Probably wasted about 500 sq. feet worth. I don't mind the breakable clumps as long as there's not too many. I actually took a pic and sent it to Scotts, no response.

Weeds all over
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I laid down this product in early spring as well as Scotts WeedEx prevent with Halts in the fall. My yard has never looked this bad. I've been using Scotts products for over 15 years. The past couple of years have been disappointing. Neither of my next door neighbors have these types of weeds. You used to see a clear barrier between lawns, with mine being the best. Not anymore.

Home Depot did a great job of delivering the product which I had ordered on line. I would have rated everything a five star except I did encounter a small issue when I applied the fertilizer to my yard, there were clumps in the fertilizer which wouldn't flow through the broadcast spreader until I 'gloved up' and manually crushed the lumps (some of which were softball size). Not sure this has anything to do with Home Depot it may be more to do with how long the product was sitting around before sale. I would repurchase the same thing from Home Depot again and I appreciated the delivery service very much. We had a freak snow storm two days after I applied the Scotts Turf Builder with Crabgrass Preventer to my yard. :)

My lawn was scraggly and weedy. I used this product and now my lawn is beautiful and green with very few weeds left. The crabgrass is almost all gone, too! I love my yard again! I wish I had a BEFORE picture and you could see how thin the grass was and how much bermuda and crabgrass there was! It gets so hot here and it doesn't rain; so our grass gets beaten up! I hope this is the way it can look all summer!

worth the $$$
Two years ago my lawn was nothing but dirt and crabgrass. After aerating, seeding and applying the winter guard product last fall, I applied this product a few weeks ago (I live in the Northeast) and I have the greenest lawn on the block. If you don’t follow the directions and apply improperly you are wasting your money.
