Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy - turning grass white When I noticed the Step 1 delivered to me was for Seedling rather than the regular version I've used in the past I called and spoke with a "brand ambassador" prior to spreading. I was assured that the products were almost identical and it was fine to use on my established lawn. That was 13 days ago and I now have huge patches of grass turning pale to white. I have an email from the representative I spoke with and will be addressing this with Scotts but wish I had read these reviews before applying it seeing that there are so many negative reviews, most with this same issue. I'm hoping someone can assure me that this will reverse itself but it has gone from bad to worse in the past 3 days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It burned my grass!!! As a long time Scott's 4 Step user I've been very happy with the product. However, this year I wanted to do some seeding so I bought the 4 Step program where the 1st Step is for Seeding...what a horrible mistake. It burned my grass and now my lawn looks terrible. It's been down for nearly three weeks and even after days of rain it seems to be getting worse. How do I get my nice lawn back?!? My neighbor did the normal 4-Step and look how nice his lawn looks...you can see a clean GREEN line!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yellowing random blotches of grass Went with Step 1 for seeding on April 5th. Looked OK for a week and now (4/25/20) looks lousy with yellowish splotches randomly appearing in lawn. (several others have reported same and mine looks like pictures of previous reviewers) Not weeds; appeared to be good grass. Scott’s products have worked fine in past many many years, not this one!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product First review I have ever written for any product, that is how disappointed I am. Use the 4 Step program every year...not sure what we will do moving forward. Bought this product because we were filling in bare spots and overseeding. Lawn looked great for about 2 weeks, then all of the sudden it had spotty yellow/burn spots that are continuing to spread. They seem to be worse on the north side of the house, which just happens to be my front yard, UGH! Usually have the nicest yard on the street...not this Spring. Definitely would not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Work I live in New England. I gave this product a second chance because I had some bald spots that I wanted to touch up. Not only has that seed not sprouted in over two weeks but it is mid April and I am spot spraying for weeds like it’s late July. I put a lot of time and care into my lawn. I have used the Scots conventional program with good success but this product is a dog.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with the yellowing...any thoughts? Applied to my newly over seeded lawn, bought a 4 step program as I often do. Used a Scott’s drop spreader recommended setting on the perimeter and rotary spreader inside the perimeter. I have always used Scott’s products...this one is concerning. Used Scott’s Kentucky Blue Grass Seed prior to Step 1. Aerated before seed application. Will Turf Builder or iron help turn the yellow to green?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Used this stuff because I wanted to overseed my lawn this year.I have a 5000 sq. ft. lawn. I bought a 5000 sq. ft. Bag and put it on. It called for a setting of 7 on my Scotts drop spreader. I actually used 6.5 setting and only got half my yard done. And yes my spreader was calibrated perfectly according to Scotts. Now my yard is turning all yellow and looks like it is dying because of too much fertilizer. Pictures enclosed.
