Planning to apply this product this weekend. Used it last year & was absolutely amazed at the results. I have neighbors on both sides that are over-run by everything including crabgrass. I thought I was doomed, but if applied early enough this stuff really works. It really does keeps crab-grass from germinating. I will admit that at the end of the season I had some crabgrass. It came from the neighbors & Scott's admits this application only works for 4 months. I tried using Ortho weed (with crabgrass) control with several applications but it took a long time to kill the existing crabgrass. Unfortunately I think I killed plenty of grass with it, doing too many weed applications too close together. Near the end I simply pulled out the remaining plants by hand.

Like I've said in my other reviews I do my homework before I buy. Here was the one place that I didn't and I screwed up. The fertilizer is this bag is very good. I love Scotts fertilizers. Never burned a lawn yet. [knocks on wood] That said, the fertilizer could be better. I'm sad to say that this version of the fertilizer lacks some of the micronutrients the Super Turf Builder lines have and if I could steer a future purchaser in that direction, the Super Turf Builder lines are definitely the way to go. Secondly as a result of this purchase, I'm not a fan of the combination products. The crabgrass preventer, Halts, that is in the product must be applied early before germination of the crabgrass seeds begins (a pre-emergent preventer). In some cases this may be late winter to very early spring. In fact it can be so early that you might be needing to wait to apply your fertilizer for another month or so. Having the two products combined then can create a little issue as you can see. Then there is the issue of the Halts crabgrass preventer. It prevents germination of crabgrass seeds (which require 3 consecutive days of 56 degree weather to germinate), but it will also prevent the germination of any new grass seed you may want to put down. So if you are the type to over-seed in the spring or fall, then you can't over-seed for 3 - 4 months after application! This is a fact that some people fail to realize and then wonder why their newly laid grass seed isn't germinating. Then if you read the label, it says once laid down to not aerate, rake or disturb the lawn as you will break the protective barrier of the Halts. Hmmm...guess you better start raking and de-thatching REAL early if you plan to use this product correctly. I didn't quite know all of this at the time of application. I was too busy raking, de-thatching, and aerating since it had warmed up. I then applied this product. Oops. So I got the affect of a beautiful green spring lawn, but some green crabgrass and weeds coming up too as I missed the pre-emergent window, albeit not by much. So in short, the fertilizer is very good, but not great. The Halts is a great crabgrass preventer, BUT only if timed correctly (as it is not possible to act as a post-emergent treatment), and you don't plan to over-seed, rake or disturb the lawn. As such, due to the issues of correctly timing crabgrass preventers, combined with the needs of over-seeding and fertilizing at the right time, I just cannot recommend this product. To correct for the over-seeding concerns, one would want to go with Scotts Starter Fertilizer with Crabgrass Preventer instead. That contains Tupersan, a chemical that selectively inhibits crabgrass germination (and other weeds!) while allowing grass seed to germinate. Nice, stuff, but as you will see, it costs much more $$. If you do go the separate and not combination product route, and you are looking for a product that prevents crabgrass in a pre-emergent AND early post-emergent manner (just in case you are just a little late with your application), while still catching and preventing more of the common weeds too, well, you will have to look outside of Scotts.

      Comments about Scotts 5M Turf Builder With Halts Zero Phos (32367F):

      I applied this product early March but my lawn was totally taken over by crabgrass in Aug. I was following the plan laid out below by Scotts. http://www.scotts.com/smg/goART3/Howto/when-to-feed-lawn/33500008 No where does it say that we need another application of crabgrass preventer after 3-4 months. Only after reading the negative reviews here I came to understand that another application is needed. Can you please clarify how to fit in another application of this product in the plan above?

            I spread Halts on my lawn as soon as the ground was thawed and right when I normally would spread the product I normally use. and by the time July came around My lawn was over run with crabgrass I will be going back to the other product from here on in. The only reason I tried Halts is everyone sells it and the other product has limited availability.

                    Having been born in Marysville Ohio and having several relatives who are lifelong employees of Scott's, it pains me to write this very negative review of this product. I was very excited to find this product as I hate dealing with crabgrass. I carefully applied the product and watered it in early in spring and waited for the results. Not only did it NOT prevent crabgrass it seems to have encouraged it!I have much MORE crabgrass than I've had in the past and worse yet it's growing down deep inside my Bermuda grass where it's difficult to reach. Not only did I waste money but I wasted time applying and watering this product in as well as the time I've had to spend weeding my yard. I cannot recommend this product.

                          We used this product when instructed according to the Scotts Care plan for our area. It works, its awesome and our lawn looks fantastic with the exception of one area in our back yard. Grass was green, beautiful and has been free of crabgrass the entire season so far. Easy to use and the results are amazing!

                                  Applied as noted on the bag using a Scott's hand spreader. The grass, along with the existing crabgrass, greened nicely. The crabgrass continues to grow as does the normal Kentucky Blue. If you want a good greener for ALL lawns then this is a good product. It will NOT however do one, single thing to eliminate, or halt crabgrass.

                                                The stuff works great when applied according to directions. Missed a year and had a big mess. Tried off brand and didn't work as well. Costs more but you get what you pay for I guess.

                                                  Been using Scott's Fertilizer for years. I've tried using cheaper brands in the past and they just don't work as well. My only complaint is that every year, including this year, a bag Springs a leak and I end up with a bunch of fertilizer in the trunk of my car. I don't think I'm handling the bags roughly but perhaps when they are stacked on pallets they receive some abuse. So bottom line is great fertilizer put in a cheap bag.

                                                      The best way to say hello to your lawn after a long winter slumber! Consistently outperforms all other brands including the lawn service trucks that I see throughout my neighborhood. So easy to apply, I have been using this and other Scotts products in my lawn care regimen and clearly have the most healthy, good looking lawn around! I aerate every couple of years and haven't seen weeds thanks to the root growth that Scotts products promote.

                                                              Scotts just does it right. They don't just pore in a bucket of this and that. Scotts all in one particle used to be made of a slurry of NPP and vermiculite was added that absorbed the slurry. I don't know if the still use vermiculite in any of there products but vermiculite was great at holding water in the soil and preventing compaction. Just remember this product is mostly for early season for a quick boost and is high in ammoniacal nitrogen and low in Urea. As far as preventing crabgrass, it does its job as long as you don't disturb the ground were applied at all. just remember that after edging your sidewalks, edges will be open to windborn seeds.

In Texas I used Vigiro for St. Augustine, but for a Bluegrass/Fescue mix, this is the best there is. I also like the fact that it is very tolerant of over application and generally doesn't burn if you apply a bit more than prescribed.

                                                                          As Winter turns into Spring, and the snow melts, I see blades of green grass reaching toward the sun. After reviewing the products on your website, signing up for email notices, and coming up with a plan to make my grass healthy and green, I followed through. Because of the ease of use, instructions and good directions, I believe I have the best grass on the block. Thank you Scotts!

Does not prevent the grab grass nor wide leaf grass from growing, but it encourages those products (Weeds) to grow stronger and bigger.
