If you're forced to overseed in the spring instead of the fall with cool-weather grass you can't use standard pendamethalin-based pre-emergents as they will keep the seed from growing. The turpersan pre-emergent in this starter selectively hits the crabgrass and allows the grass to germinate. It's difficult to find plain turpesan anywhere but this product is usually stocked at Lowe's and some Ace Hardware stores. Just make sure you get it down before the average soil temperatures hit 55F for three days. The NOAA website should give you a pretty good idea for your area or just look for the forsythia to start blooming. One other note: this only works on crabgrass so other annual weeds might still come up. In that case, you'll need the 2,4D and dicamba herbicides after three mowings.

This starter food turns some of the existing grass white. I did see the label but did not expect the white grass to be so prevalent. It has been 14 days and I hope it soon will go back to green as promised on the packaging. So if you know exactly what grasses you have on your lawn and it is not one of the many grasses listed on the packaging as ones that turn white - then you can use it. But the weirdest thing is that new grass grows up pink. My little girls love the pink grass but I am not impressed. I don't hate Scotts and will still use their Starter food WITHOUT weed preventer. But this product is not practical for average homeowner.

          I use to alternate what year I started my lawn with new seed and what year I used crab grass prevention. I am so excited I no longer have to choose. I have been very happy with both Scotts products the new seed feed and the crab grass prevention from use in previous years but I was not happy having to choose between which product I could use. This a great idea combining the two lawn care products for spring lawn repair that I require every year.

                  I have used Scott's seed and this starter fertilizer on a well worn path created by high traffic (dogs and people) in my yard. I anticipate good results but I am still witing as I put these down about one week ago.

                      I always trust Scotts to have the right product for my lawn. I applied this right before a spring rain to a newly seeded area of my lawn. A little sunshine and within 3 days the grass was green and had thickened up already. Knowing it will keep weeds at bay is a nice plus.

                          This is a very simple product to apply. The directions were very clear and easy to follow especially if using a Scott's spreader. The dandelions began to wilt soon after application and I expect even better results after the first rain with the fertilizer component. The product appears to be performing as advertised.

                              My yard was in need of some TLC after a dry last summer. I just placed Scotts Turf Builder Starter food on my areas of my lawn where I need to rebuild the damaged sections.Along with more grass seed I added the mix and as the package stated, in six weeks my lawn begin to grow back and even thicker than before and has cut down on weeds in my lawn! Thanks Scotts, I will continue to use your products!

                                  I had some bare spots in my lawn from late season weeds that I killed last fall which needed re-seeding. I used the starter fertilize when I seeded and the grass is coming up well. I have not seen any weeds in the newly seeded areas.

                                          I applied Scott's Turf Builder Starter Food For New Grass Plus Weed Preventer as well as Scott's Contractor Grade Grass Seed Easter Weekend. Using Scott's Wizz it was quick and east to apply both products. With the gentle rain that we had the past few days I am already seeing my yard green up and I know that soon I will see healthy shoots of new grass emerging. I feel confident that my lawn will be weed free as well. Using Scott products regularly helps get and keep my yard picture perfect. With the help of Scott products my yard has gone from looking sad to becoming the one everyone walks by and admires. Considering that I knew nothing about taking care of a yard, since using Scott products and following their suggestions I am feeling more and more confident each year.

                                                            I had a large bare spot right by my Dogwood tree that needed grass. So I prepped the area for seed and watered it as required. The area was seeded with Scotts® EZ Seed® Patch & Repair Sun & Shade product on 26 March 2017 and watered as required. So on 9 April 2017 I applied this item on the new grass. I looked at this area on 15 April 2017 and noticed that it worked but still had a few weeds. It was semi-effective overall. I also had to deal with local temperatures that were up and down a lot in our area. I have used the product in the past for another location in the backyard. It worked as required with stable outdoor temperatures.

This makes growing grass seed a whole lot easier. A fertilizer starter for the grass plus a weed preventer built in.

It will feed the new grass as well as keep out the weeds, especially if you have to seed in the spring. Grass grew in thicker as well as opposed to not using fertilizer or just using the Scotts seed starting soil alone.

I wish I had found this product years ago. It does an amazing job!! A few days after application, the broadleafs and weeds started to yellow and wither and I was still able to do my extensive overseeding. Highly recommend this product.

Great product and works perfectly for new grass.

I put down some new seed and Starter Food - kept it watered - now I have all kinds of little green shoots coming up with no weeds.
