Why Should I Pay More for Scotts Weed & Feed?

May 11, 2017

You want a weed and feed to kill dandelions and other weeds without hurting your good grass.  So you see the cheaper stuff in your garden center and wonder if this will work as good and maybe you can save a couple of bucks along the way.

My answer:  “Be careful… you want the one that will actually stick to the dandelion leaves and kill it root and all.”

The small particles in Scotts Turf Builder Weed & Feed stick like glue to your dandelions and other weeds.  This is absolutely crucial for penetrating and killing down to the root.  That’s the rule of thumb:  If it’s going to kill, it has to stick.  You don’t want those big particles that bounce off weed leaves and don’t stick and don’t work as well.  You find them in those weed & feeds that may cost a little less resulting in “hit or miss” weed control.

And a second bit of good news:  Scotts Turf Builder Weed & Feed gives your lawn that deep Turf Builder feeding which helps to strengthen your good grass so it is a better competitor against new weeds that may try to take hold.

So to keep it simple, stick with the weed & feed that sticks to the dandelions:  Turf Builder Weed & Feed.  And here is a helpful hint:  Apply Turf Builder Weed & Feed to a moist lawn on a day when rain is not expected.  I put mine down first thing in the morning when the weeds are loaded with dew.

This short 45 second video shows you how it is done:
