Fall feeding is a simple trick for a gorgeous lawn come spring. Scotts makes it easier than ever with innovative products like Turf Builder WinterGuard Fall Lawn Food and Turf Builder 3-in-1 Thick‘R Lawn.
So, is fertilizing in the fall really necessary? The resounding answer is, YES! Fall lawn fertilizer will…
- Help rejuvenate and repair a lawn stressed from the summer heat, drought, and heavy foot traffic.
- Give roots a pre-winter nutrient boost as the growing season winds down.
- Make for a strong start to spring with a greener lawn. Grass will green up by as many as 2 to 6 weeks sooner than average!
Perfect for a second fall feeding before winter. Turf Builder WinterGuard Fall Lawn Food builds strong deep grass roots for a better lawn next spring. WaterSmart improves the lawn’s ability to absorb water and nutrients versus an unfed lawn. Provides nutrients to help repair damage from summer heat, drought, and activity. Apply to any type of grass. Kid and pet-friendly when used as directed.
Available in 5,000 sq.ft. and 15,000 sq. ft. coverage.

Spruce Up & Patch Up
If you have bare spots in the lawn (like the one left behind by the kiddie pool), we recommend a product specifically formulated for repairing bare spots like Scotts PatchMaster Lawn Repair. Turf Builder Thick ‘R Lawn is also a great to fill in those pesky gaps.
All-in-one bare spot repair. Improved easy-to-spread formula lawn repair mix. Contains grass seed, mulch, and fertilizer. Starts to grow in as few as 7 days. Absorbs 3x its weight in water to keep the seeds moist. Feeds up to 6 weeks.

With each passing year, the wear and tear on your customer’s lawn can cause it to become thin and weak, even with regular feedings. Thin, weak grass is also a welcome invitation for weeds to move in and make your lawn their home. Overseeding, or thin lawn repair, is a quick, inexpensive way to help return worn-out, tired grass to its former lush, green glory.
Turf Builder Fall Mix Grass Seed greens quickly in sunny or shady areas. Repairs lawns ravaged by summer heat, drought, and pests. Contains Watersmart Plus coating technology that absorbs twice as much water and holds it twice as long as uncoated seed. Feeds with essential nutrients to jump start seedlings and protects with a fungicide to keep seedlings safe from disease.

To sum it up, feeding your lawn in the fall gives your lawn the strength, stamina, and support it needs to make it through the cold-weather months so it will emerge lush and green in early spring. Your customers can rest assured that’s time well spent!
