Hey Charlie. September is a great time to put down this fertilizer on warm season grasses like Bermuda or Zoysia, in your area. September or October would be a good time for Fescue grass.

This product can be used until the ground freezes, if you have a cool season grass. It is not a good idea to feed the lawn too late in the year if you have centipede, Bermuda, or St. Augustine grasses.

Fall is the best time to over seed your lawn. Depending on the area that you live could push the date either direction. But, Labor Day weekend is a good average date. Make sure you apply it about 6-8 weeks prior to the ground freezing. In the past, Winderguard used to work well with new seed...as long as it wasn't winterguard plus 2 that doubles as a weed killer. However, Scotts decided to change this product at most stores to be pretty much identical to the product that is sold in the spring. (you will pay about $10.00 more for this bag...I guess the color of the bag is more expensive...the contents are the same) So, you could use another brand of fertilizer that has a higher Potassium content. Potassium and a bit lower Nitrogen number.

I hope this helps...

Cool season grasses (Kentucky Blue, Rye and Fescue) should be seeded in the fall. It is best to seed when temperatures are no longer in the 90's and there is at least 30 days before the first hard frost. Warm season and transition grasses (Bermuda, Centipede, Zoysia) should be seeded in late to early summer after the danger of frost and when the ground temperatures are above 70 degrees.

Turf Builder Winterguard should be applied between October and Mid-November in the Indianapolis area. When comparing the two fertilizers look at the NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium) ratio and any control in the product. The Turf Builder Winterguard is plain fertilizer with a NPK of 32-0-10.

Sod is grass that has already been planted. Scotts Turf Builder WinterGuard Fall Lawn Food is good for all grass types. The timing of your application will depend on your climate and the variety of sod that you had installed.

Check to see what the residual is of the fertilizer that was used during the hydroseeding before applying another fertilizer. If you have time to fertilizer, we recommend using the Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food for New Lawns. This will help encourage root development which is what is needed to help the new grass survive the winter.

Yes, Turf Builder WinterGuard can be used anytime before or after seeding as long as the lawn is actively growing and no other fertilizer has been used for at least 4-6 weeks prior. You may want to inspect the yellow patches to determine if there are any other noticeable issues present, as yellowing can be a symptom of a number of issues in a lawn.
