Step 1 Crabgrass Preventer Plus Fertilizer worked great. I worked really hard at planning my timing of application because this is a preemergent. Once the soil temps hit 50 degrees or so, Crabgrass starts to germinate, and if it germinates you need weed and feed. It worked perfectly for me and I had virtually zero weeds and I applied as directed on the bag. The fertilizer gave it a great green-up really quickly.

I've been a 4-Step user for over 25 years, and am convinced it helps keep my front lawn (sod) looking good. However, I'm disappointed that crabgrass still comes up in my backyard. Why is this, and what other options do I have? Living in MA, I apply it every year between mid to late April per the bag's direction. I also set my rotary spreader a click higher than the 3 setting recommended on the bag, overlap the spreads, and never had a burn problem. Is there a difference in the formulation with Step 1 for Newly Seeded Areas and the standard Step 1? Maybe I should go back to the Standard Step 1. I will continue using the 4-Step process unless I find some better option for eliminating crabgrass.

      I have always used Scotts products foe 29 years. Never had crabgrass until last year. I use your Deluxe spreader with edge guard, I thought I did not apply enough, so I did not turn on Edge guard this year. Not the issue, still have a lot crabgrass. I applied Scotts Halts in March then crabgrass preventer with food in May.. Scotts products have changed or you have cut the product so much it doesn't work.. Paul in Cinnaminson NJ. I will not use this product next year, very disappointed, I hate crabgrass...

          We started using this product when we first purchased our home. Night and day results! Easy to use, and never had burn issues. Draw back is price, but no negative rating. We need to cover 130,680 sq. Ft. so it gets pricy. Well worth it though!

            After doing the 4 Step Plan for 3 years, last year my lawn looked the best it's looked in years. The grass was fuller and weathered the dry spells of summer. Bring on this years 4 Steps! (This review was submitted as a sweepstakes entry or is a review of free product.)

My lawn was crbgrass free for the entire season for the first time. (This review was submitted as a sweepstakes entry or is a review of free product.)

                      Scotts Step One is one of the 4- Step fertilizer program that takes the guess work out of fertilizing your lawn. Starting with Step One, what can I say, this pre-emerge fights against crabgrass up to two months when applied. This product works best when you apply in early spring with excellent directions on the bag that explains when to put down based on your geographical area where you live. Speaking of directions, the bags also explains what settings to use with what Scotts spreader as well as the best way to spread Step One depending on the shape of your lawn, how easy is that? Scotts 4-Step program, starting with Step One is the best "bang for your buck" where you get the best of both worlds when it comes to stopping the growth of crabgrass with the combination of the right springtime formula to feed your lawn after a long winter.

                                                                I've been using this product, in fact, the entire Step 4 Program, for several years. My lawn has been the envy of neighbors every spring and summer as they pass by on their morning walks. It has never failed to impress them or myself. A few years back, here in Illinois, we suffered a devastating drought and I lost about 2/3 of my lawn, as did everyone else. With a little seeding and the same Step 4 Program, my lawn rebounded the very next year and never presented any of the effects that most of the other lawns in the neighborhood showed. I can, without any reservation, highly recommend not only this product, but any offered by Scotts.

I know it is very effective just by comparing my lawn with my neighbors who do not use a program. I can see a well defined line where my property ends and theirs begins. I have also started using Scotts aeration once a year and this has made a big difference in my lawn. It is a good feeling to look out my window and see thick, green lawn.

After two weeks my lawn starts really looking good. I also take the time to do a through raking and mowing of the entire yard, before I start using the complete Scotts 4 Step program.
