  • How to Use

    1. PREP
    Bare Soil: Loosen top layer of soil.
    Dead Grass/Thin Area: Rake area and remove dead grass.
    For best results, add a thin layer of ScottsŪ Turf BuilderŪ Lawn Soil? before applying seed.

    2. APPLY
    Small Area: Spread by hand or with a ScottsŪ handheld spreader.
    Large Area: Apply using a specially designed ScottsŪ spreader.
    After seeding, apply ScottsŪ Turf BuilderŪ Starter Food for New Grass to boost your seed's performance for a thicker lawn that comes in quicker. Lightly rake to move the seed and fertilizer into the soil.

    3. WATER
    Keep the soil surface moist until the seedlings reach 2 inches tall.
