Winter can be hard on lawns, so many homeowners look for products to help protect their lawns through the harsh weather. Afterall, a lot of hard work went into building a beautiful lawn and it would be a shame to have to start over each spring.
Scotts Turf Builder WinterGuard is formulated to build stronger, deeper roots that will strengthen grass and provide a thicker, greener lawn the following spring. Scotts Turf Builder WinterGuard is applied in the fall. This is a granular product and can be applied either by hand or with a spreader. The fertilizer is 32-0-10 and can be spread on either wet or dry lawns. Wait for a calm day to apply. A 14 pound bag covers 5, 000 sq. ft. and a 42 pound bag covers 15, 000 sq. ft.
Scotts lawn products are color coded to identify which season the product should be used. This particular product is color coded red to indicate a fall season product. Like many of Scotts lawn products this one contains Water Smart technology which provides for a healthier lawn with less water usage.
I enjoy working on the lawn with the exception of extremely hot summer days so I want my lawn to survive the winter months and be ready for a fabulous spring. Scotts Turf Builder WinterGuard delivers as advertised. My lawn enters spring thicker and greener than when I do not apply a fall fertilizer. Be prepared to have to cut the grass regularly with this product. If I do not cut the grass in the Spring every week, I will have to put the grass catcher on the mower. I do not want a thicker, greener lawn that looks like I have cut hay when I mow the grass.
Scotts makes quality lawn products and Turf Builder WinterGuard is no exception. Spring, summer or fall, Scotts has it all.
