Lawn Innovation for Spring

Presented by Scotts

Spring is almost here and you’re probably looking forward to spending time in your yard. Get your lawn spring ready in very little time and as easy as one, two, three. Instead of spending hours, days, or weeks working in your yard to make your lawn lush and green, you should be enjoying time with your family and friends.

That’s why the key to a lush, green lawn is Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action, a revolutionary product that features a 3-in-1 formula that kills weeds like dandelions and clover, prevents crabgrass from invading your yard and feeds to strengthen your lawn. It is your early spring lawn care in one easy step.

Scotts Turf Builder Triple Action is designed to work on Bermuda grass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Perennial Rye grass, Tall Fescue and Fine Fescue. For best results, plan to apply Triple Action when dandelions are visible and when your lawn is wet. To apply, check the bag for the correct spreader setting, fill your favorite Scotts Spreader and apply it to your entire lawn starting at the edge and working your way in. Finally, water your lawn 24 hours after application.

Scotts Turf Builder Southern Triple Action features a unique 3-in-1 formula that weeds, feeds and prevents fire ants all season long and is easy to apply. Scotts Turf Builder Southern Triple Action is best for grasses like St. Augustine (including Floratam), Carpet grass, Centipede and Zoysia grass. This 3-in-1 formula kills tough weeds including dollarweed and clover, prevents and kills pesky fire ants and feeds to strengthen your lawn.

For best results, plan to apply Scotts Turf Builder Southern Triple Action when your lawn is dry and after the third mowing of the season. To apply, check the bag for the correct spreader setting, fill your favorite Scotts Spreader and apply it to your entire lawn starting at the edge and working your way in. Don’t forget the last step: apply water immediately after you’ve completed the application.

Looking for a 3-in-1 solution for a thick lawn? Scotts Turf Builder Thick ‘R Lawn contains everything you need for a great start to spring – soil improver to help develop roots, seed to fill in thin areas of the lawn with new grass and fertilizer to feed. It is your spring lawn maintenance in one bag.

Before you apply, mow the area to about two inches or the lowest mower setting. Rake to loosen the soil and remove any dead grass leftover from mowing. Use your favorite Scotts Spreader to apply Thick ‘R to your lawn. The first two weeks are crucial to keep your lawn thoroughly watered. Water every day or as needed to keep the surface of the soil moist.

Before you head to the store, determine the size of your yard so you’ll be prepared to purchase the right amount.

Certain Scotts products only work on limited grass types. Always check product labels to ensure your grass type is included and remember to read and follow label instructions.
