Scotts Fertilizer - A Need To Know Guide

Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, the parent company of Scotts Fertilizer, offers many different kinds of fertilizer with different formulas that are catered to many different kinds of lawns. When you are looking for what kind of fertilizer you will need for your lawn, keep in mind that you may in fact need more than one formula, depending on the time of year and where you live. Somebody who lives in Scottsdale, Arizona will not need the same kinds of fertilizer for their lawn as someone from Duluth, Minnesota.

Scotts Turf Builder Lawn Fertilizer with 2% Iron is a popular choice among many lawn care hobbyists because of its universal formula that can be applied to any kind of grass. However there are also specialty blends that are formulated for specific types of grass in different parts of the country. For instance, Scotts Southern Turf Builder with 2% Iron is formulated specifically for southern regions, which are more susceptible to intense heat and long dry periods.

While Scotts offers many different kinds of fertilizer for just about every need (at least thirteen), if you want the best looking lawn you're going to want to look at a combination of different fertilizer formulas. Scotts themselves suggests you fertilize your lawns using a four-part schedule. In the early part of spring, apply a typical fertilizer. If you have children, use Scotts Organic Choice, that way the kids can run out and play as soon as the fertilizer has been laid on the grass without risk. In June, apply a fertilizer with Weed Control to keep any weeds that may be growing at bay. In late-July, early-August you will want to apply Scotts Lawn Pro Super Turf Builder with Summerguard to protect your lawn against the intense strain from the heat, as well as helping your lawn stay healthy during the drought months. Finally, apply a fertilizer with a winter formula near the end of the lawn mowing season to prepare your lawn for the winter months ahead.

From organic-based eco friendly, to strengthening the roots to help your grass suck in every nutrient it needs to give it that healthy, green appearance, Scotts has a formulated fertilizer for your needs.
