Fertilizer can be applied as long as the grass is green and the ground is not frozen. In most areas of the country it is best applied in the fall between September to mid-Novemeber. The weed control in this product is most effective when temperatures are consistently between 65 and 85 degrees. We recommend that is possible apply Scotts Turf Builder with Winterguard or waiting until the spring.

I just applied Scotts lawn Fertilizer with weed killer granules and water smart technology but
forgot to get the winterizer type.
When can I reapply or can I skip the Winterizer piece this time?

You should wait at least 6 weeks between each application of lawn fertilizer. While the Turf Builder Winter Guard is formulated to help prepare lawns for the winter, it will not hurt anything to substitute a different lawn fertilizer for this application. Depending on which area of the country you are, you probably will not be applying anything further until spring.

Hi Mlwodo,

According to our garden expert, the lime will have a minimal effect on pet urine. The purpose of the lime is to reduce the acidity of the soil.

Flooding the pet urine with a hose is more effective, than using lime. The ideal solution is to train your pet to urinate in the same area of the yard every time.

Choosing the ideal grass for your location should take into account more than the soil -- you should also consider the amount of light the area will get each day and the amount of traffic on your lawn. For many lawns in the region, tall fescue is a good variety. I'd recommend using Scotts Turf Builder Heat Tolerant Blue Mix. That's primarily tall fescue grasses blended with some of our specially-bred Kentucky bluegrass to give it a deep green, dense turf that stands up to the extremes of temperature.

To improve a clay soil, you should consider aerating your lawn every few years. After aerating, you can topdress with Turf Builder Seeding Soil to add organic material to the lawn. Over time, this will improve the texture and drainage of your soil.

This product can be applied to centipede lawns but it is not recommended. Centipedegrass should not be fertilized this late in the season. In your area August is the latest that we recommend.

Hello Suzy and thank you for your question.

The Scotts Turf Builder WinterGuard with Plus 2 Weed Control should not be used on bent, carpetgrass, dichondra, lippia and St. Augustine (including Floratam) lawns. The centipede should be okay but you may need to determine if there are any other grasses in your lawn.

Additional specifications can be found here: http://www.scotts.com/smg/catalog/p....

Best wishes on your project.

Hello udog and thank you for your question. The Scotts Turf Builder WinterGuard with Plus 2 Weed Control is safe for kids and pets. Allow them into the area once the recommended 24 hour period (after application and watering in) has passed for best lawn results.

However, the Turf Builder WinterGuard with Plus 2 Weed Control is NOT safe for your newly seeded areas. You can use the Plus 2 only after the new seed has grown and the new grass has been mowed four (4) times. The product is applied optimally between 60-85oF. Since this is Thanksgiving week, it is probably too cold for application in your area.

Instead, use Scotts Turf Builder WinterGuard (regular version without weed control) for the newly seeded areas. This product is also kid and pet safe (wait 24 hours after watering in for best results). Your seed will be safe and you can apply the product up until the ground is frozen.

Best wishes on your project, the kids, the pets, and the lawn!
