Late September lawn was looking a little stressed, not that vibrant green during Spring and early Summer. Applied my 4 Step as recommended, did some watering, with a little help form Mother Nature, and in 5-7 days the grass had a deeper, healthier color about it. I don't think it is my imagination, when a neighbor passed by and wanted to know how I kept my lawn so green. Of course I mentioned Scotts products and how they helped throughout the year to prevent unwanted weeds and promote good root and grass plant growth. I currently use the 4 Step Application and apply every 2 months with an extra application of Scotts Super Turf Builder with SummerGuard in mid-August.

I have used the 4-step program for several years now and, while I am very happy with Steps 1-3, I have not been happy with Step 4 results. Please note that I always dormant overseed each late fall just before our Minnesota snow season begins. Each spring for the last 3 or 4 years my lawn has large areas of grass that does not grow causing me to reseed the non-growth areas. These non-growth areas did not occur until I started using the Step 4 product. I will continue to use Steps 1-3 again this year but I will go back to my former approach of putting down a Starter fertilizer application in late fall.

        When I use this in the fall, my lawn always comes up first in the spring & is the greenest lawn in my subdivision. My neighbor asks me how I get it so green!

          After having a beautiful lawn using Scotts 4 step program, I started having a landscaper take care of my lawn. In 3 years my lawn was half dead and half weeds. I fired the landscaper and for 2 years now I have been back to the 4 step program and I have a beautiful lawn again. I also use my Scotts Speedy Green spreader.

                  I used a lawn service for 13 years and last year my neighbor suggested I buy the 4 step and grub control and he put them down for me. I was very pleased. I am 76 and after my husband passed away I just hired someone. He had always used Scotts so I decided to do it again.

                        I used Scotts 4 step program again this year and my lawn looks just awful. The crabgrass and other weeds have taken over to the point where I have just as much grass as weeds.

                          I was previously using off name standard weedkiller/fertilizer products and my lawn looked fairly decent but wanted it to take it to the next level. I enrolled in the Scott's 4 step program even though it was quite a bit more money and my lawn looks horrible this year. The fertilizer was average and it did work but not a single weed died and there was definitely no preventing weeds. My lawn is now full of crabgrass clover dandelions and tons of other weeds which it never had an issue with. Mid summer it also developed bare spots for some unknown reason. Don't waste your money!

                                    What is really nice about Scotts 4 step, is that you buy ALL 4 bags in the Spring (watch the newspaper for the sale), then you nave NO excuses, NO MORE need to make a trip to go buy fertilizer. Just apply whenever you have a holiday (and you have an extra day too): Step 1 - Apply near the Easter holiday Step 2 - Apply near the Memorial Day holiday Step 3 - Apply near the Independence Day (July 4) holiday Step 4 - Apply near the Labor Day holiday A perfect product for perfect lawns with perfect holiday times to apply!

                                        I bought the deal for all 4 steps this past spring. In the past I had a lawn service, but had to cut back. Figured I would do it my self with the 4 step program and glad I did. My lawn has filled in where weeds once were with thick grass and is a beautiful green. I followed the timing on the front of each bag as to when to apply and it was as simple as that. Saved hundreds compared to the lawn service this season and had a lawn I was proud of. Only thing to note was that it did take some additional care in controlling clover. That was the one battle this late summer- but it may have been the odd weather of a very cool August.

                                                  Have been using Scott four steps for years with success but this year my lawn does not look good. A lot of brown or bare spots.

                                                    I have used the Step 4 fertilizer system for several years and I have converted several of the neighbors to its use as well. Its easy, economical, always has deals at Ace when you need to purchase it, and the ease of use is outstanding. The only thing that I would improve is to add a step 5 for the winterizing. I start in late March or early April and go every 6 weeks give or take and by September its gone. It would be nice to get the 5th step to take you through October.

                                                        I only use Scotts products on my lawn. I have Bermuda grass. I use the 4 step, but only purchased from Ace, or a specialty lawn/garden shop. There is a difference in the ingredients than the same bag purchased at a Home Depot or Lowes. The bag must say PRO.

                                                            Scott's four step products make it very easy to know what to apply to your lawn, and when to apply it. I used to purchase individual products but could not keep straight what to put on at different times of the year. Scott's solves that problem for me with this product. And it works great on my lawn - the difference in the quality of my lawn is very noticeable when using the four step process/

                                                                I switched to the Scott's annual program several years ago after purchasing the Scott's products individually for each "season". The program is the way to go. You have the right product when you need it. It even tells you on the bag when to apply it. Fabulous product. I even pay extra for the Professional grade.

Additionally, it prepares the lawn for the rigors of winter. On Cape Cod where winter is later than most areas, the lawn get a beneficial "shot in the arm" before the first frost. I found applying the fertilizer the second week in October works the best !!!

Applied my 4 Step as recommended, did some watering, with a little help form Mother Nature, and in 5-7 days the grass had a deeper, healthier color about it. I don't think it is my imagination, when a neighbor passed by and wanted to know how I kept my lawn so green. Of course I mentioned Scotts products and how they helped throughout the year to prevent unwanted weeds and promote good root and grass plant growth. I currently use the 4 Step Application and apply every 2 months with an extra application of Scotts Super Turf Builder with SummerGuard in mid-August.
