This product is a lawn fertilizer and does not control weeds. We are sorry to hear that Turf Builder Weed & Feed did not control your clover. If clover is still an issue you may need to wait 4 weeks after using the Turf Builder Weed & Feed and apply a weed control that is safe for your lawn type. This link will provide further information. http://www.scotts.com/smg/goART2/so...

Wait for a little while to make sure the weeds are dying out, sometimes it takes a minute,if your spreader was not set on the right dial this can cause the seeds to not penetrate all of the areas in the lawn.

If you have a lot of weeds, especially small-leafed ones, the Ortho liquid lawn weed killer works really well. The granules in the weed and feed don't always stay on the leaves long enough to take effect.

answer 1
Gently tug on a fistful of grass to check to see if the brown grass is still viable. If the grass roots are attached to the soil, water the areas for 20 to 30 minutes (1/2 inch) every 2 to 3 days. Do not apply any other products to the areas for at least 6 weeks while the grass recovers. If the grass roots are brown, brittle and not attached to the soil the areas will need to be reseeded in the fall.

answer 2
well if your brown spots are dead grass you need to re seed. I just
sprinkle the Scotts seed mix, already mixed after I pull the dead stuff away and poke hole in soil then sprinkle the seed mix water daily and in a week or two it should be filled in. You should be able
to stop watering there daily once it takes off. This could be done any time of year. works for me.

answer 3
Presuming you're applying product late in the season (in cooler weather), reapplication shouldn't be an issue, as Scott's is time-released, unlike certain bargain brands which dispense full dose as soon as they're applied. This said, "cooler" is relative -- I'm presuming daytime temperatures in the 60's or lower. Also, after a lawn goes dormant, fertilization has very limited benefit. Search this out on the internet and I believe you'll discover the same information. Good luck!

starter fertilizer can be used even after the grass is growing. it will not hurt anything as long as u don't use too much. u can tryputting a little less on at each application but put it onmore often to keep it from going dormant or falling off because of starvation. I have used starter. fertilizer for the first treatment after being planted and had good luck.then use the recommended fertilizer that Scott's reccomends for that time of year.

Depending on the amount of weeds, you may want to totally clear out the area with a non selective herbicide and start seeding from scratch. The other option is to seed now, fertilize and then once the seed is established, start attacking the weekds with a selective weed control.

Things like heat, insects, disease, pet damage, over application of fertilizer or a few problems aggravating each other are several of the reasons that brown spots can develop in the lawn. Check with your local nursery to have the problem identified. If you feel the issue is product burn, provide a 1/2 inch of water every 2 to 3 days for the next 3 to 4 weeks to help the lawn recover. If we can provide any additional assistance please call us at 877-465-5160.

When you are trying to grow new grass, we recommend that you prepare the area by loosening the soil. Use one of our Turf Builder WaterSmart Plus grass seed mixes. Follow it up with Turf Builder Lawn Food for New Grass after about four weeks.

Turf Builder Lawn Food is formulated for mature grass. This product would be used on the lawn after your new grass is well-established.

I suggest using a dethatcher (available at a Local lawn rental company.) Get as much of the dead grass out as you can. Then, apply a good amount of lime to the area. It's hard to apply too much lime. Just don't go crazy with it. I would suggest aerating the soil and seeding the soil either before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. Apply Scotts starter fertilizer with the seed and water twice daily. Morning and late afternoon is best.

While it is not required, we suggest waiting until the temperatures are above 60F and the grass is actively growing in the spring before applying a lawn fertilizer. If it is over 85F we suggest watering the product in immediately after application. Certain southern lawn types may have even more specifics about temperature and timing, as they go dormant during the winter.
