* Kills dandelions and other broadleaf weeds.
* Scotts smaller particles stick to weeds better and kill them
completely -- root and all
* Builds a thick, green lawn from the roots up
* Won't burn your lawn...Guaranteed!


This crap is a waste of money and it will burn and I have more weeds
now. Yes, I set the spreader correctly and I water early in the morning.
I am in the North East so if this is not surprising because of the
weather here - please enlighten me. Also if I should avoid Scott's
products also let me know. Should I get down and actually pull these by
hand

When did you apply it, and at what rate?

About a month ago and not sure what you mean by "what rate" ? Thanks for
the reply.
Maybe my spreader/or I was malfunctioning which I guess could be the
reason for some burnt/brown spots and I have been guilty of that before
but if I did get it down why didn't it reduce the weeds on the areas not
burnt/browned?

Granular broadleaf weedkiller needs to be applied when the leaves of the
weeds are actually wet, so it will stick better. Otherwise it tends to
simply roll off.

So, do it very early in the morning when the leaves are still wet, or mist
the lawn with a hose immediately before application.

I've never used Scott's products so I can't comment on them specifically.
I'd imagine the nitrogen in this product is mostly sulfer coated urea (slow
release nitrogen), and shouldn't cause any "burn" whatsoever if you're
applying anything even remotely close to the recommended amount.

Hope that helps.

By "rate" I mean, how many pounds per thousand square feet of lawn?

Perhaps you didn't get an even coverage? The product in question has a bad
habit of clumping, which can make that difficult.

You also didn't mention what type of weeds you wish to control. What you
used won't work on crabgrass or mature dandelions (among others).
