Every year my lawn goes brown in the heat and needs some reseeding each spring. Since I found this product and used it last fall this spring my lawn was thicker and greener than ever and no reseeding it all is green and thick. I also found it stood up better int the heat of summer. I also learned it is best to apply twice. once in Sept. and again after all the leaves have fallen and cleanup is done and last mow I reapply. I am happy my lawn stands up so much better.

Had the nicest, greenest grass in the neighborhood once we moved in during July. Decided to use this product to get me through the winter. Ended up with horrible, yellow dead spots all over my lawn less than a week later. I'm a lawn novice to this stuff, but can honestly say I'm disappointed that I not only overpaid for lawn fertilizer to get Scotts compared to other brands that I was told would work just as well, but now I literally have no idea what steps to take to even begin to remedy the situation. As a new homeowner, am just heart broken that it came to this, and feel flat-out awful/like an idiot in front of all my neighbors that I could make such a nice lawn a complete eyesore. Thanks Scotts, much appreciated.

    Comments about Scotts 5M Turf Builder Winterguard (38605D):

    I started using WinterGuard last fall and happy how good my lawn looked in this spring. It seemed thicker and less weeds. I did a search of winter lawn fertilizers and found great article from Colorado State University said the most important nutrient for fall fertilizer was nitrogen and to use a concentration such as 25-5-5 or something similar. WinterGuard is 32-0-10 so it has the perfect blend of nitrogen for my bluegrass here in Colorado.

          This product gets your lawn prepared for the winter harshness and it also prepares your lawn so in the spring your lawn is strong and ready for the new season. In the spring when I cleanup after the winter roughness I feed my lawn Scotts Bonus S weed and feed and along with the Winter Guard I fed it for the winter my lawn come in thick and comes in green and weed less. I have been using Scotts products forever they are the best food for your lawn.

                I am still hoping for great results after following your plans this past fall thru present. I have used Southern Turf builder in early August, Scotts Weed & Feed in in Late September, Scotts Winterguard fertilizer in mid November, Scotts Halts for Crabgrass deterent in the Spring and Scotts Winter guard in late December only because it was still very warm in Florida. MY yard is nowhere near like my neighbors. I will continue with your program and products until April. Hopefully things will improve

                  I fded my lawn thru out the season and sometimes skipped the fall application. Well last year I starting using the Scotts ap and applied the fall feeding. What a difference come spring time. My work for preparing the lawn was cut in half. I recommend feeding your lawn but don't skip the fall and late fall feedings and get the Scotts ap!

                      Every spring my neighbors would comment how quickly my lawn greens up and how thick and healthy it looks compared to theirs. Of course they wanted to know my secret and I told them how important the fall feeding is, specifically a feeding with Scott's Winterguard. Now every fall they follow my lead. When they see me out spreading the Winterguard they know it's time to feed their lawns Winterguard too.
                      In early spring, the first feeding is with Turfbuilder plus Halts so that I never get crabgrass. I follow this with Turfbuilder Plus 2 in the late spring and again in summer to avoid weeds. I have the best lawn on the block.

                          The warm temperatures in the Northeast in November and December gave me the opportunity to apply this product twice over a seven week period.A week after the first application, my lawn was greened already. The neighbor next door commented that my lawn looked like May instead of December.I anticipating a fresh , green lawn in the Spring!

                                          When I first started using Scotts Winterguard, many years ago, I would apply it in late Ocrtober. One year the leaves clung to my trees until the end of November and some into the first od December. So I waited and applied the Winterguard after I scraped the last of the leaves. It has worked like magic every since and so I don't apply it until say mid-November or early December, according to the leaf drop. Also am very pleased with all Scott products. Have used them faithfully for many years and get so many compliments on my thick green lawn.

                                            I've applied 2 applications of Scotts® Turf Builder® WinterGuard® Fall Lawn Food per the directions. The lawn was started in May using sod and was well watered through one hot, dry summer. Going into the fall, the lawn still looked good being thick and green. It seems to have thinned out a bit come December/January, but is still green. I'm not sure what I should have expected, but I would have been very happy had the lawn retained both its color and thickness. Given that it did not, I consider this an average product. However, it is not possible for me to separate product effectiveness from the grass mixture itself.

                                              This works quite well as a late season lawn food.There is a noticeable difference in my lawn in the early spring when my lawn is compared to my neighbors lawns! Ours is quite a bit greener and healthier looking!

                                                Have used for the past 5 years. Grass starts out very green and thick in the spring.

                                                    I applied this to my lawn last October, my grass is very green and has grown quite a bit - looks like it could use a mowing. I will definitely use Scotts products this year.

These two products keep my yard in green and good shape most of the year.

I applied it as directed and noticed that my lawn has several spots where weeds that weren't there last winter are there now and keep growing rapidly. I turned down switching to another brand, but this has been a vey bad experience and I will consider doing so starting next season

It turns an otherwise beautiful lawn end of summer and turns it into nasty looking one by mid November through winter. What is the point of applying this product and the winterizer with weed killer especially when weeds and broadleaf come back anyway! No matter if I used it light, like half the bag on my small lawn or the full bag. It's the same result.

Decided to use this product to get me through the winter. Ended up with horrible, yellow dead spots all over my lawn less than a week later. I'm a lawn novice to this stuff, but can honestly say I'm disappointed that I not only overpaid for lawn fertilizer to get Scotts compared to other brands that I was told would work just as well, but now I literally have no idea what steps to take to even begin to remedy the situation. As a new homeowner, am just heart broken that it came to this, and feel flat-out awful/like an idiot in front of all my neighbors that I could make such a nice lawn a complete eyesore. Thanks Scotts, much appreciated.

I have used Scott's brand several times but never this product by them. It basically killed parts of my grass. I applied it to my yard last weekend and noticing that this weekend the grass is beginning to turn brown and die. I had a very nice green yard all summer. I am uncertain the extent of the damage. Very disappointed with myself for not researching this product before I used. Looks like other consumers have had the same issue.

Fall is the best time to feed your lawn, if you only feed once per year, it should be in the fall. works great.
