What is the difference between this product and the Winterguard Fall Lawn Food?

Asked by Chevi October 15, 2019
3
Answers

The orange bag is "WEED AND FEED" ....as opposed to fall lawn food......for weed prevention for next year, it is a great idea to treat the lawn to the weed and feed product in the late fall - helps the roots of the good grass to grow, and kills the roots of the weeds....... I have used weed and feed in the late fall for years, and have minimal weeds in the spring/summer season.

Why this is killing my grass

Effective on creeping charlie?

Asked by LAN September 13, 2018

Answers

My lawn was covered with creeping charlie. I applied this product last fall on my front lawn to see how it would work. I was amazed. All the creeping charlie gone along with weeds (plantain, clover, dandelions, etc.) and my lawn was the best it has been in many years. Even better than putting weed and feed and fertilizer down in the spring. Grass came up thick and green.

Keeping it Green
Customer review from scotts.com logo
Despite the several below freezing temperatures, our lawn is still green. Some late onset weeds persist but the lawn is mostly free of them. Hopefully this product protects until weed prevention is applied next year. As with my Turf Builder Ultra-Feed review, using this product may have me re-think my regular Scott’s Four Step routine.

Great Product for Your Lawn
Customer review from scotts.com logo
The Scott Turf Builder Winterguard Fall Weed & Feed will help prepare my lawn for the spring. It can be applied at anytime during the fall to help repair any damage to my grass. To make sure the lawn food was distributed properly, I used a spreader but you can also manually spread it around your lawn. So far the lawn looks healthier than it was and the weeds are gone. I highly recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Fall work done- waiting for Spring!
Customer review from scotts.com logo
We were having a problem with browning and weeds in our small back yard. Looking for a solution to apply now (Fall) with hopes of a greener Spring lawn, we decided to apply Scotts WinterGuard Fall Weed & Feed. It comes in a large bag which has clear easy to follow instructions printed right on the bag. We first mowed the lawn- leaving grass clippings- and then watered the lawn. Per the instructions, you apply on a wet lawn! We used our Scotts spreader, set at 3 ¼. It was easy to quickly spread our small area (see picture). Our winter season in the Carolinas is short, so we will wait for Spring in hopes of a greener, lush lawn. We believe this WinterGuard Fall Weed & Feed will solve our yard problem- if it’s as effective as easy to use, we’ll see results soon. Will post another picture in the Spring and change the star rating after the product has time to work. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Amazing!
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I moved into a new construction home in July 2019. The builder had laid sod and it was all I could do to water it constantly to ensure it wouldn’t die in the July/August heat. In the Fall I decided to use the Fall fertilizer with Winterguard to ensure our lawn would be the best on the block. When early Spring came, I COULD NOT believe how beautiful our grass was! It was such a beautiful dark green color and so thick and lush. We had to start cutting our grass weeks before our neighbors since theirs hadn’t even started growing yet. Later in Spring, I used Scott’s Weed and Feed fertilizer. I plan to do 3 different treatments each year. (Fall Winterguard, Spring Weed and Feed and then Summerguard in the Summer) So far by only doing the 2 treatments (Fall and Spring) my lawn already looks like a million bucks! I couldn’t be more happy with the different Scott’s products we have used so far. When I did the Fall Winterguard application, I saw all of our weeds in the sod disappear within days! Since continuing into the Spring with Weed and Feed fertilizer, I will tell you that our lawn is completely weed free! Today I started on the Summerguard fertilizer treatment and I am so hopeful that our lawn will continue to look amazing during the hottest and most dry time of the year. I am so happy with these products that we’ve used so far. I know they’re pricy, but it is so worth it! Our neighbors all have sod as well, but there is a VERY OBVIOUS difference between our lawn and all of theirs. No one else has used any fertilizing products at all and you can definitely tell! I would never even guess that they had sod. I’m just amazed at what our lawn looks like...all thanks to Scott’s fertilizers. FYI: we live in the panhandle of WV sandwiched between MD and VA to give you an idea of climate.

Better than its bargain brand competitors, Scotts always delivers on its promise to deliver a nice looking lawn within days of application. This product was no different. I've been applying the product on my lawn in October for several years, and the results have been just great. From greening up the lawn in the Fall season to minimizing weeds in the Spring. I provided two recent photographs of my lawn in the Northeast section of the US during early November. The pictures says a lot about the results we received from the application.

Easy to apply, just load it into your spreader, set the appropriate setting and walk your lawn. Applied the fertilizer about 2.5 weeks ago and lawn is looking excellent. Spread the fertilizer after our first rain after a major drought. Grass came back strong, healthy and super GREEN!
