You can apply Thickr Lawn at any time, be sure to water in regularly. Summer guard needs to be applied at least 4 weeks after any application as it will harm the baby growth and definitely water that in.

I want use summerguard as it helps with water use, but can I apply a weed control bag at the same time.

Asked by Bob June 10, 2020
2
Answers

I wouldn't. If you get on the Scott's program your first application of the year is for fertilizer and crabgrass, second is for weed/dandelion fertilizer, then summer guard followed by winter guard then winter guard with Plus 2 weed control over the summer.

How soon after Weed and Feed?

Asked by Brian July 22, 2019

Answers

I do 5 treatments a year with 6-8 week intervals: Scott’s Turf Builder with Halts crabgrass preventer on Feb. 28, TB Weed and Feed in early May, TB Summerguard in mid-June, regular TB in mid-August, and TB Winterguard just before the snow flies. With good watering, I’ve not been disappointed.

Summer guard granules are thicker than the previous 2 steps. I set my spreader to 3 3/4 and it doesn’t seem like a lot

Yes it can be stored in a cool dry place and used next year. I recommend putting into a storage container as it does lose some of its potency.

Check for cinch & grub infestation as well as pet urine. The best solurion is to rake brown spots and apply Scott's Grass Patch Repair. It has soil, grass seed and fertilizer all in one application. Make sure to water those areas at least twice a day during germination period.

Incredible results at such a bargain price.
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I live in Texas where the sun tends to keep my yard looking dry and yellow. I wasn’t sure what to do so I did some research online and came across the Scotts Turf Builder. I also purchased the automatic spreader and it worked amazing. I only needed one bag to cover my front and back yard. I’m just a few weeks my lawn looks amazing. I changed my sprinkler to water two times a day (6am and 6pm) for 15 (~3 min per zone). I’m elated with the results and will be using Scott’s products all year round.

KILLS YOUR LAWN!!!!!!!!
Customer review from scotts.com logo
Unfortunately I did not see the newer reviews about this product when I purchased. I looked at the reviews but they had the oldest and best reviews listed first. After I used the product and started getting brown patches all over my lawn I researched again and then found the newer reviews stating this product leaves burnt patches in your lawn. There is no excuse for this when it is suppose to protect your lawn but instead kills it. After maintaining my lawn and spending money on keeping if healthy and green this product comes along and kills it. Will never use AGAIN!!!!! What is worse is Scott's is aware of the problem and are still selling this product. Read Less

We apologize that you were not thoroughly satisfied with Scotts Turf Builder SummerGuard Lawn Food with Insect Control. When used according to label instructions the product does not damage the grass. While there is a safety factor built into the product, too much product can cause damage. We recommend a watering program of 1/2" of water every 2 to 3 days. Follow this watering plan for at least 3 weeks following the application. Most lawns will recover given time. We offer a guarantee that extends to all of our products. If this interests you, we ask that you contact us at https://tinyurl.com/y8nvfsca.

Awful damage to lawn even when used as directed
Customer review from scotts.com logo
We went from a nice green lawn to yellow and brown hay in a matter of days. We spent much of this Spring fixing patches that had died since the lawn was seeded over two years ago. Tons of time spent and it was finally perfect. No patches and all strong green, healthy grass. Decided to be proactive and give it an extra kick before late Fall weed n' feed. Chose the product because it explicitly states no burn possibility. Weather hovered around 80-88 over last week when this was applied - package states that can be applied June -Aug (which in most of the lower 48 states will always be above 85!) and definitely in the mid-Atlantic region where we are). Large burn patches began to appear within 48 hours. We have had a wet week - some to a lot of rain daily. But still it gets worse! See photos - one of the bad areas and one of an area of lawn that I did not put product on because I ran out prior to getting to it. Looking to the 'bad' photo you can also see the other neighbors across street whose lawns looked similar to ours PRIOR to application. I should add that the massive number of patches in the one photo are accumulating more daily and they are getting wider every morning since application

We are sorry that you have experienced problems with your lawn following an application of Scotts Turf Builder with SummerGuard. Damage can occur if products are accidentally over applied or applied to drought and heat stressed turf. This type of damage can sometimes be minimized by watering 1/2 inch every 3 days if rain is not expected. We suggest that you follow this program for the next 4 weeks if you do not receive sufficient rainfall. 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.

Use the 4 step program
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I started using the Scotts 4 step program at the beginning of the season, finished the 3rd step a few weeks ago, and the difference is way beyond what I thought was possible. I had a horrible looking lawn, now it looks professional. Highly recommend.
