Rated 1 out of 5 by Ryan600 from So disappointed I loamed and seeded plow damage, and over seeded my entire lawn.. my local garden center recommended step 1 for seeding. Reading the package it said for newly seeded and over seeded lawns. It also said that whitening can occur.. but this is crazy, my whole lawn looks terrible. I hope this is truly only temporary.. I can not recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by avrick from Disappointing results I’ve used Scotts products for years with very good results. This product has discolored all my new planted grass from last fall. My lawn has multiple spots of yellow and yelowish white grass. Extremely disappointing. and there is clover that was not killed as anticipated.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mt830 from The worst We bought this to stop crabgrass and weeds. After applying it the next week we had a ton of dandelions come out. It seems the weeds love it. We will never purchase it again

Rated 1 out of 5 by SCchelmsford from Don’t Use This Product I spent a lot of time, sweat, and money on preparing my front lawn for reseeding, and over seeding. I did everything right, except find and read these other reviews for this product. Top soil was raked evenly, this Step 1 for Seeding was spread according to the correct distribution, seed was spread. Whole lawn was rolled, fluffed up, and watered properly at dawn and dust. It has been 17 days without a single seed germanization. Nothing! My local garden store recommended this product, and I have since shared the story with them and to never recommend this product to anyone again. Extremely dissapointed with this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JPH 13 from Yellow/white streaking across my yard! Put this down over two weeks ago and my yard looks terrible! I have light yellow streaks across the front yard, so embarrassing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Another Unhappy Customer from Total Disaster! Bought 3 – 15,000 square foot – 4 step programs for our large lawns, a substantial investment. Chose Step 1 for seeding solely on the recommendation of our nursery rep. We are just sick to see we have the same problem so many others have faced with the yellow spotting after checking the problem on line. The lawn looks horrible and is getting worse 3 weeks after the yellowing started. Previous reviews indicate Scotts has known about this problem for a while and should be advising retailers of this problem. Had we known this we never would have purchased. Scott’s – what can you do to make this right with your customers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ChrisN from Turns grass whitish yellow I applied this product to my entire lawn area, including some newly loamed areas, and then had the new loam hydroseeded. It’s been 16 days since the hydroseed and I have seen 0% germination, and patches of my existing grass have turned a whitish yellow. I’m really disappointed with this product so far, and I’m concerned that the hydroseed won’t germinate and I’ll have wasted money not only on the Scotts product but also the hydro seed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lynn21 from Do not buy! Huge white/ patches after application I overseeded part of my yard this year, so I used this Step 1 product. Within days of application my lush, green yard developed ugly white and yellow patches. It’s been 16 days since application and it’s gotten worse every day. This is a picture I took today.

When Can I Seed After Preventing Crabgrass?

I hear that question quite a few times this time of year. I have two answers depending on the size of the lawn area that needs new grass seed. However, before I give those two answers here is a quick rundown of crabgrass prevention 101.

Scotts Turf Builder plus Halts Crabgrass Preventer and Scotts Lawn Pro Step 1 contain our best crabgrass preventer to provide prevention for around 4 months. The directions state that you should not plant grass seed for 4 months after application, which means you will need to wait until the end of August to seed. We have a different crabgrass preventer for folks who want to seed in spring and prevent crabgrass. Scotts Starter Lawn Food plus Weed Preventer and Scotts Lawn Pro Step 1 for New Seeding provide crabgrass prevention while allowing you to plant grass seed at the same time. (Note: the crabgrass prevention does not last as long as Turf Builder plus Halts and Step 1, however it is your best choice if you want to seed in spring.)

Now here are my two answers:

1). If you only have a few small areas you want to seed, I have seen folks get around the fact that they have a crabgrass germination barrier in those spots by cultivating the soil to a 4 inch depth (to disrupt the crabgrass barrier), then mixing in an inch of compost like Scotts Turf Builder Lawn Soil, and then seeding with Scotts EZ Seed.

2). If you have a large area you want to seed, the first recommendation is not practical, so you really need to wait until early fall to seed.
