I applied fertilizer after reading on this website that lawn burn is a thing of the past and that you can apply fertilizer any time of year and any temp. I followed the instructions on the bag and used a Scott's spreader to apply. Today (Monday evening) I have brown spots all over my yard!!! I applied Saturday morning and didn't water in immediately because the bag said it wasn't necessary. I watered heavily Sunday morning and today I see the spots. I see on the website that you should water in if close to 95 degrees --- why isn't this on the bag?!?! Question, how long will my lawn keep burning? Have I seen all of it or will it continue to burn?

        Clumps of fertilizer makes it unusable

            This is not my first bad experience with Scotts fertilizer but it will be my last. Previously I bought a bag of fertilizer and upon opening a fair percentage of it was clumped together so with gloves I broke it apart prior to using. This year I carefully checked bag for punctures before buying and found none. I got it home started pouring it into rotary spreader and numerous large clumps were in the bag. This time the clumps were packed hard and responded like clay when trying to break apart. They wouldn't break into individual grandules. In fact all the fertilizers could be squeezed into clumps making passing through a rotary spreader impossible presently I'm attempting to dry the fertilizer out on plastic in my driveway. Fooled twice, not again.

                Bought this product and applied it over a month ago and the only thing that it did was feed weeds. I had a beautiful Bermuda yard until I used this product, which really let me down because I've always spent more $$$ for higher quality, so I thought. Save your money and try something else. Very disappointed!!

                                In 43 years of home ownership, I've come to believe in Scotts products. While occasionally tempted with low-cost alternatives, I found Southern Lawn Food which has comparable price & superior performance. Regular use gave me a lawn that is one of the nicer yards in the neighborhood. It seems to promote existing and new grass growth, and with mowing on high settings, the lawn is thick and has choked out almost all weeds. Overall, I don't want to spend my life doing yard work. I don't have a "golf course" lawn. I just want a yard that looks good, easy to maintain, and a fun place for my grandchildren. Scotts Southern Lawn Food gives me that!

                                    Year after year I apply this in the spring. I prefer to not use much fertilizer and this does the trick for 1x a year feeding. I have Zoisia grass and part St. Augustine on my neighboring property. It mutually benefits both and keeps things green through our harsh Texas summers.

                                                I have been using Scotts Souther Turf builder now for the past several years. i have had the greenest lawn on my block. But for some reason the last application I applied a couple of weeks ago has killed a large majority of the lawn. Not sure what is the cause is but I applied as directed and have done over the past several years without an issue.

                                                    I'm a seasonal fertilizer user and get very good results. I only use Scott's Fertilizer when it's time to fertilize, I learned 3 reasons that cause grass to turn brown: spreader settings, insects that eat grass from the roots and yard (water) drainage. I use Scott's Southern Turf Builder 6-8 weeks after each seasonal fertilizing or when I think there's a need.

                                                      My lawn was the best in the neighborhood with Stagreen products applied in 2014. This year applied Scotts products and did all that was asked for per Scotts App. Applied this product on Jun 11 and my entire lawn turned brown. Watered my lawn within 24 hrs after applying. This product is a big failure.

                                                          I applied fertilizer after reading on this website that lawn burn is a thing of the past and that you can apply fertilizer any time of year and any temp. I followed the instructions on the bag and used a Scott's spreader to apply. Today (Monday evening) I have brown spots all over my yard!!! I applied Saturday morning and didn't water in immediately because the bag said it wasn't necessary. I watered heavily Sunday morning and today I see the spots. I see on the website that you should water in if close to 95 degrees --- why isn't this on the bag?!?! Question, how long will my lawn keep burning? Have I seen all of it or will it continue to burn?

The local sbeen using it since last year (2014) and it has made a big difference in my yard. The local store that has yard supplies, did not have it a few week ago and we had to buy a different brand. Not as good as Scott's.

Well to make a long story short, I applied Scott's " Southern " weed and feed to my new lawn, and I now have the best looking lawn on my new block, my neighbors ask me what I used...signed, more than happy with Scott's.

This Spring I followed the directions precisely ( even used a Scott's spreader ) and it still tore up my lawn. I'm out.

Used this in combo with some other scott weed control and walla.

                                                                                                            I did try other brands and finally gave this a shot and was very pleased with the results. I have tried the kind that mixes weed control or bug control with the fertilizer but have always come back to just the fertilizer. I have clay soil so I have to use a bit more often but the results are worth it. I get complimented all the time on my lawn. My neighbor on one side eventually switched to Scotts because he saw my yard always looking better than his. My neighbors on the other side have a lawn full of weeds. You can tell where my lawn ends and theirs begins mainly due to the health of my grass. I recommend this to everyone who asks.
