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.

I've used Scotts fertilizers for years without ill effects. My lawn was doing very well going into Fall. Per Scotts' recommendation I decided to let it grow a bit longer than usual this past Summer and into Fall at 3" settings on my John Deere tractor. Observing dropping temps mid-September I thought I would give this product a try so that I would have a greener lawn throughout the Winter, give it boost before the final mow of the season one week following the application. What has ensued is disaster like I've never seen. Over an acre of what was a fine lawn is completely dead, gone, a muddy mess. I imagine will cost over $1,000 in labor and materials to recover/re-plant.

        I have been using Scotts products for over 20 years , unfortunately this past usage of fall and winter fertilizer was a flop, to say the least. My lawn in large part went from green to brown. I've always used Scotts spreaders and recommended settings . I can only hope that they will make good on their guarantee and help me to restore my lawn to an acceptable shade of green.

              I tried this product last year on my first house. Then lawn turned yellow. This year on my 2nd house in different location, just a week ago. Same result! Yellow, spot to spot. So disappointed. Scott Lawn Food seems worked good but not this one. Do you have an answer?

              lawn seems better already. Im following the "my Scotts lawn care plan" online. I used winter weed and feed, then Scotts halts crabgrass preventer, prior to this I have done nothing with the lawn, just moved to this house 2 years ago. Don't know if its this or the halts, but lawn is looking nice and green much better then ever.

                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.

                                                Winterized my lawn using this product thanksgiving day weekend. We have had a lot of rain and after new years day my lawn is still emerald green. I have used this product numerous times over the last few years with similar results. Great product! I recommend it and will use it next year too.

                                                        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.

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 consistently burns my lawn to mix of green and yellow. 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.

                                                                                          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.
