    I had a bag of Scotts fertilizer with crab grass preventer in it in my garage from last season. When I tried to use the product on my lawn this season the fertizer had clumped up so bad that I could not get it broken up even if I used a hammer. Please advise if you will replace this bag. Also, if you will do nothing to stand behind your products, how can I dispose of this product now?

    I had a bag of fertilizer with weed control also in my garage from last season which was from Menards and this product was fine and I used that bag. It did not clump up like the Scotts product did.

    Your comments would be very much appreciated.

  2. Karen,

    First of all, Blades Lawn Care is not affiliated with Scotts so if you want to pursue them directly you should visit

    In regards to your problem, clumping is caused by air and moisture exposure. The best thing you can do to prevent it is to seal the bag as best you can. I’ve had Scotts fertilizer clump, but never so much that it wasn’t able to be broken up. Then again, I’ve had some organic products such as corn meal clump up on me. It seems like you will have to purchase a new bag this year, but try to seal it after use if there is some leftover.

  3. I applied the scotts turf builder 2 wks ago end my crabgrass and dandilions seem to enjoy it they look bigger and more yellow than ever. Help!!!

    • I find the product marketing to be overstated usually. Be diligent and patient. You might have to apply a little elbow grease or spot treat. My personal experience with “weed & feed” type fertilizers has been one of reduction rather than elimination. Good luck Tonya.

    I put in a new lawn 4 weeks ago. The landscapers used Madison Parks seed. It is coming in just fine along with many weeds. When can I fertilize and which Scotts product can I use?
    Please advise.
    Thank you.

  5. Do you have a fertilizer that can be applied in the summer without burning the lawn?

    • Lesley,

      Organic fertilizer is perfectly safe from burning the lawn. I use a poultry based organic fertilizer and it works really well.

  6. What is best to use on Zoysia Grass to get rid of weeds. It’s a well establish lawn but the last couple years I have a lot of Clover and other weed sprouting up.

    I have tried and tried to email you and send some photos of my yard that I am working very hard on trying to get it back to where it has normally been!!!! I have some winter kill that I have put Scotts grass seeds down and covered with Scotts potting soil. I have done that before with different brands and nothing happened sure don’t know why not. Also in the good part of the lawn there is a lot of tan grass. That is why I want to be able to send photos so that you can help me. I have tried to email you using emails on your web site and they are not working so please reply to me so that I will have a good email address.
    Thanks much,
