I was given some of this as a gift. i borrowed a drop spreader and did part of my lawn. i thought i was doing ok with the drop spreader but i didn't get close enough to the last pass made. kind of lost track where i was. I bought the broadcast spreader now and i will use it exclusively. i have a huge lawn and i could see everywhere that i got and didn't get with it. my section i did looked like Yankee stadium. you can really tell that where i didn't get it the grass is a lot thinner and lighter looking than where i did get it. you will get results with this product. wish i could post a pic. i was advised to put it on one notch higher than the label recommends in early spring. in middle of summer follow directions as recomended.

I have used Scotts Turf Builder products for 40 years and only when we moved to Fresno Californis have I had a problem with results. It just does not seem to work in this over heated climate. I like a lush green lawn about 3.5 inches in heigth to fight off the heat, but the grass has surcumed to the heat anyway and there just doesn't seem to be anything to do but wait for fall (cool weather) and try something else.

      Comments about Scotts Turf Builder 5000 sq. ft. Lawn Fertilizer:

      I tried organic or natural products because I had concerns about my kids and dog playing on the grass. They were ok but I decided to go back to Scott's after seeing it was safe for kids and pets. Put it down a couple of days ago and did not water in. Got lucky with some rain and sunny days and boy am I pleased. Lawn has noticeably greened up already!

              I believed the Scotts hype and I only got an average yard. I applied their products when they needed to be applied. I have been using their products for over 2 years and not very pleased with them. For some it might work good but for me it didn't. Do your research and get your soul tested so you know what your yard needs. If you want and average yard these are average products.

                  Finally, a product that works just like it says it will.
                  I can't say enough good things about this lawn food.
                  My lawn was starting to crunch, and was not looking very healthy.
                  Once I applied this product, my grass greened up within a week and now grows like crazy, and with less watering. I have a lush beautiful lawn. In fact, I think it's the best looking in the neighborhood. I have to mow it every week or it's almost impossible to mow with my push mower. Hey, don't laugh, I like the exercise.
                  So run, don't walk, and buy this lawn food. You won't be sorry.

                        I've used Turf Builder on several lawns over the course of 50 years. I have never been disappointed. The weed and feed product didn't work for me, but the plain Turf Builder has always made the lawn lush and green. I get a kick out of the reviews that say it burned up the lawn or, in one case, it made the lawn magically full of clover. You would really have to overapply this fertilizer by a lot to see any burning and as far as the clover goes, well, that person sure can work some magic with a spreader and some fertilizer!

                            Ive fought and struggled with my lawns for 40 years! And struggled with my lawn where I live now for 20 years. My lawn was almost non existent when I moved in 20 years ago and I used and tried ( by the directions on the bags and supposed experts) numerous products but only achieved marginal success. I live in an area with a clay soil so that is also a challenge. 4 years ago I bought a new spreader and had the setting to high the first time I used it and burned the heck out of my lawn with the fertilizer I was using. Last summer I asked a neighbor who had moved in a couple of years ago what he used that had made his lawn look so good. Of course it was Scotts Turf Builder. And I asked the maintenance people at my work what they used as the lawns at my office always looked great and it didnt seem like they do very much to have it look that good. Once again Scotts Turf Builder. So I tried it!! After only one season my struggling lawn is thick and looking the best it has in 20 years! It is thick and green and I think by this summers end my weeds will be almost gone because it is so healthy and thick. I have tried numerous additives and fertilizers and simple Scotts Turf Builder applications over 1 season worked wonders!! Thank You Scotts!

                                      I used other lawn products over the years and never paid attention to the brand. Then I bought Scotts on the recommendation of a friend who had a beautiful lawn. I used the 4 step program for the last 10 years. However the lawn developed problems with weeds and dying grass so I hired 2 different lawn service companies. That only made matters worse. They were expensive and not reliable. I switched back to Scotts. Then I discovered your Lawn Food for all grass types. It has worked miracles. My grass is thick and green. Cant wait til Spring!

                                          Scotts Turf Builder has always produced a thicker and greener lawn without burning. It feeds for nearly two months. Have tried other brands occasionally, but always come back to Scotts because it simply performs better.

                                                              We've been using this product for many years! It performs great all the time. Several of our neighbors have a lawn service, we prefer to take care of our lawn ourselves. Our neighbors always comment on how green and lush our St. Augustine lawn is, compared to their lawns. We always tell them we use Scotts Weed & Feed and Turf Builder to guarantee a perfect lush lawn all year round. We Love the Scotts products! They are very reliable!

This is a great product and I will continue to use it.

Within 14 days the lawn was noticeably better. Picture one shows the lawn right after applying Scotts Turf Builder Lawn Food (Day 0) Picture two shows the lawn 14 days later! (Day 14) You be the judge! Hec

                                                                                                      I have a new (this year)Scott's Classic Drop Spreader. I follow the bag instructions with the drop spreader setting (6.5), and I align the arrows on the spreader with the tire marks. I have a 30,000 square foot lawn. I have used 2.5 bags that are supposed to cover 15000 square feet and I'm not finished. At the rate this has been going, I can see needing at least 1 more bag to finish. Given the numerous complaints about burning the lawn, is it possible either the spreader or bag settings are off? I have had similar, but not as extreme, issues with other Scott's fertilizers this year. Fortunately I haven't seem burning, but something isn't adding up.

Horrible product if I would have known I would have never used it! It burned all of my grass I would of never expected it specially when the bag clearly states you can use it ANY SEASON and NO BURNING GURANTEED!!! Don't waste your money!
