After a hot August this really greened up my yard. I used Bayer in the spring but I will switch to Scott's next year.

    My Grass is a Thick, Beautiful Dark Green
    I've been using the Scotts My Lawn app ever since my home was ravaged by an EF3 tornado. The cleanup and reconstruction really destroyed my lawn. The My Lawn app told me when to put this product down (as well as other Scott's products throughout the year) and the results have been amazing. The weeds are getting choked out and the grass is thickening and darkening. It just works really well.

    Burnt my tall fescue
    Applied Scott's winterized weed and feed on September 10 . Waited 24 hours to water and unfortunately burnt my tall rescue grass in sunny locations, which is my whole backyard. I have never had any issues with Scott's product, have been satisfied for 42 years, for all 4 seasons. Temperature was below 90 degrees as package directions. Be careful when applying that you don't crossover on same patch.

      It kills grass
      I had bad experience with the Weed and Feed lawn fertilizer before. I swore not to buy this type of fertilizer again. However, I ordered it again this year by mistake (I didn't see the tiny Weed and Feed label on the image). Sure enough, I got streaks of dead grass a few days after I applied the fertilizer. Apparently, my Scott rotary spreader dumped more fertilizer on one side. The excessive amount killed the grass.

          Weed accelator on steroids!
          I bought this product last fall. I noticed the weeds shot up like crazy. I was waiting for spring in hops the grass would come back. My yard is so full of weeds I don't even know where to start. Looked 100 times better before I used Scotts products. The products truly ruined my yard and all my hard work.

          We're sorry to hear Scotts Turf Builder WinterGuard Fall Weed & Feed didn't control the weeds as expected. For best results, day and nighttime temperatures should be consistently between 60-85 degrees. This product will only control listed weeds that are actively growing at the time of application and it will not prevent weeds from growing.

            We are sorry that Scotts Turf Builder Winterguard Fall Weed and Feed did not perform as expected. This product works best when temperatures are between 65-85 degrees, as weeds will go dormant when temperatures rise above or go below that. Therefore they can not absorb the product. 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 and refer to your review to see what can be done. We can be reached at 877-220-3089. Scotts
              Keeping it Green
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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.

                  Fall work done- waiting for Spring!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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.

                        Amazing!
                        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.

                          The product had turned into big lumps. It was impossible to spread it through the spreader. I tried breaking down the lumps with my hands. But they were too hard and too many. I mailed Scott company, and they were courteous enough to issue me a refund.

                          Magic!
                          We had a lawn that was basically a clover field and we applied the Scott's winter guard weed & feed about a week and half ago. It has done wonders already on our lawn. I'm not embarrassed anymore. You can see from the before and then after picture 1.5 week difference. I will likely do another round of the weed & feed yet this fall or for sure in spring. It is like magic! Haha

                            I realize that I paid a bit more for this over the product I usually use but it is very dramatically producing superior results. I will definitely use this again. It greened up my lawn like I have never experienced with other products that I have tried in the past. I do not even water my lawn but since applying the Scott's Turf Builder, it appears more lush than ever before. It will be a great area for my little helper and my other grand kid to enjoy the backyard. This will be my go-to fertilizer from now on.

                            I had a leftover bag of Scotts winterguard from last fall. Used this in late Feb. Immediately after applying my green fescue turned brown and Nutgrass/Nutsedge has taken over my backyard now. Horrible product, wont be using again. :(

                              Waste of time, money and my lawn
                              I've used Scotts products for the last 20 years always with good results. I applied Turf Builder / Winterguard in October, following all the instructions on the bag. I just raked up the sticks/leaves, etc which had accumulated over the winter and my lawn in coming in clumps - the entire area I raked looks burnt - it's horrible. (I have before and after pictures.) I will have to spend a ridiculous amount of money to basically re-seed and fertilize the lawn. I hope the lawn will survive. This product is horrible and I would never recommend it. I have attached before and after pictures.

                                I applied this product to my backyard here on Long Island last week, which was the second week of Sept. (70 deg. temps) I set my Scotts applicator at 3 1/4 as directed and was especially vigilant not to allow any overlapping, especially reading other reviews where they said it burnt their lawns. I figured that had to be the reason; overlapping, but found out thats not the reason at all. It turned my pretty green lawn into a disaster!! I did absolutely nothing wrong IMO. My front lawn didnt get nearly as bad as my backyard and it's the same grass, and I applied the fertilizer the same exact way as I did in the back, but in the back I used a second bag (different batch than the first bag). Pretty upsetting to spend all kinds of hard earned money and all the time it took to find my lawn ruined a day or two later. There was some powder in the second bag, but not an overwhelming amount...maybe 15%-20% of the bag. Dont know if that typical of this fertilizer (wasn't like that in the first bag), and not sure if that had anything to do with it, but I did take note of that b/c I never saw that in any other fertilizer I ever used before.. Bummed out on Long Island!

                                      This is my 4th application this year of my scheduled 5. I have been on this schedule for the last 6 years and Scott's has not let me down throughout the seasons. This last year was the most difficult here in Kansas as we had crazy weather patterns, plants, trees and grass didn't really know what season they were in and maintenance was a challenge. As fall is here I am looking forward to spring with my two applications of Winterguard and Winterguard Plus 2 for a good root base in spring.

                                          Great product. Does exactly as it says, keeps weeds at bay and encourages a thicker healthier lawn. The roots are strong and very resistant to disease and pests. I use this every spring and early summer to keep my yard, green, thick and healthy. I won’t use anything else. I also follow up throughout the summer with the spray version as well.
