Customer Reviews

Like others have mentioned, this product burned my lawn.

We raked everything up about three weeks later, seeded heavily and grass started to grow until about 3 weeks out when it all died.

Lesson learned, never using chemical fertilizers or weed control products again!

I am very familiar with Scott's products as my father used them on our lawn when I was about 5 years old. I remember our lawn being the best in the neighborhood. I too, now that I have my own home, use the full line of Scott's fertilizers and start with the Turf Builder with HALTS in early March. I then apply this product 6 to 8 weeks after applying the TurfBuilder with HALTS. It is now the end of April and I have a few more weeks to go before I will be ready to apply the Turf Builder with PLUS 2 Weed Control, but my lawn looks the best in the neighborhood already, with 1 dandelion on a 3/4 acre lot. I don't know how it got there, but I had to pluck it out of the lawn the other day. I will say that this product says apply to a wet lawn and you MUST do that. Since May can be a hot month where I leave, it is important to water your grass regularly and don't go more than a few days after the application without watering and you better not spill any on your grass because this is a chemical and you need to take precautions (Never fill your spreader on your grass, always use the sidewalk or the driveway). Read the label carefully and if you follow the directions you will have a beautiful lawn. I follow the 4 cycle plan and have never been dissatisfied.

I've used Turf Builder Plus 2 every summer the past 6 years and only had a slight lawn burn once the very first year. The general rule of thumb is to lightly water the grass immediately before you apply it so the fertilizer particles stick to the weeds and kill them. Afterward, make sure the lawn gets a thorough watering no more than 2-3 days later unless it gets a good soaking from heavy rainfall in the meantime. My lawn is usually weed-free within a week's time after applying the product--it eliminates hours of back-breaking weed pulling!

Used it on my lawn and it did exactly as stated. It did not kill some of the larger weeds but it did seem to help keep the smaller ones at bay.

I use this product as the first fertilizer in the spring to kill the weeds and strengthen the lawn as the same time. Scotts always seems to work better than other brands and one thing that I like is that its particles are a little smaller and more consistent in size. This helps it to go on more evenly and provide a consistent application.

It is best to apply this product when the weeds are growing and the grass is slightly wet. Your weeds will get sick quickly while your lawn gets a boost that thickens it and makes it much greener. Just be ready to mow your grass more after you use this product!

I have used this for years it turned my lawn from dust and weeds to a beautiful green grass. Although once put down it does need watering about 2 times a week. Or it will just burn your lawn in the hot sun.. Found out the hard way last year:(

Note: there is smaller bags are available.

I had a nice green lawn. I applied this according to directions and it burned the hell out of my lawn, while also leaving most of the clover and other weeds. I have a sprinkler system so it wasn't a water problem.......this stuff is awful.

I dont know what that guy is talking about but I've been using the Turf Builder line of products for years, and have had no issues - only a beautiful lawn of Kentucky Bluegrass with immediately killed dandelions.

I Followed Directions perfectly , Using the Scotts 76121 Turf Builder EdgeGuard Mini Broadcast Spreader (which i Don't recommend , go there to read my review and pictures i posted in it) ..

The Good Part is it Does in Fact Kill Weeds ! .. Everywhere the weed killer sticks to the weeds from morning dew dies .. very fast actually so i believe this product is great at killing weeds in the lawn

Now the bad part .. I believe this is hurting my Lawn more than it is helping .. I have new brown spots all over my lawn as other reviewers also said ... but i am willing to wait it out and see if the new nutrients correct the issue and make a better lawn in the long run

So all and all i would say watch out for burning your lawn with this product , but it will kill your weeds ... I will post an updated review as needed

Please check out my Scoots mini Spreader review before you purchase that product

Thanks !
