  • Excellent for New Grass

I just had my yard hydro-seeded recently. My yard consisted mostly of clay so I brought in some nutrient rich top soil which was spread around the yard 2-3" deep. After the grass began to germinate and grow, it was obvious that in certain areas the dirt was not spread evenly. The grass was growing slower in those areas (still healthy just slow in comparison to the rest of the yard). So at week 7 of our hydro-seeded lawn I used 'Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass' to help advance these slow growing areas. I followed the instructions on the bag and spread it with a Scotts spreader set to my area. This product work fantastic! We are approaching week 9 and I can see significant growth happening in the slower areas as well as a rich thick grass in all other areas. I plan on using the Starter again in 4 weeks to continue this pattern of growth and build a solid root system for our new fescue grass.

Back of bag recommends "double" amount of fertilizer. Best to read your spreader owners manual which will tell you the correct setting for Scotts Starter Fertilizer.

  • Grass seeds on Steroids!!!

I applied Scott's Turf Builder Starter food for New Grass last fall on a reseeded lawn in a recently built home. After applying Scott's seeds, Starter Fertilizer was applied about a week and a half later, when some of the seeds started to germinate. This fertilizer acts as a steroid for recently germinated seeds making them grow faster and greener. It also makes the existing grass thicker and healthier. Based on my short experience with Scotts product, I will be their customer forever!!!

I used this after putting down some grass seed. Not sure if it was the seed or the fertilizer or both, but it worked wonders. Grass came up in 5 days and keeps coming up. I'm very satisfied with this product.

We decided to plant seed in our yard instead of sod. Not being too aware of how to go about this, (not aware of how horrible the soil is here) I tilled up the soil last year and put in the seed, after about half a year, it grew up very slowly very short length not doing much... I was getting very frustrated, about ready to give up and just get sod. I went to the store and found this starter food and thought I'd give it one last try.. All I have to say is WOW! My grass started getting length and filling in and it looks awesome! I am so glad I decided to try it and save a lot of money on not buying sod! Thank You Scotts!!!

I had dug up some trees in my lawn and also had some bad areas that needed new seed. The Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for new Grass really helped in the growth of my new areas.
