I’m pretty picky about what goes on my lawn. While I’m not over-the-top organic fruit-loop, I do like to know that what we put on the yard is something that will be safe for the family. We have dogs, cats and a passel of little ones to keep an eye on after all.
So I was intrigued to have the chance to review Scotts Turf Builder. Especially when I noticed the Water Smart emblem on the bag after my husband brought it home. Apparently, with regular feedings in the spring and fall, the lawn will develop stronger roots and be better able to survive a drought.
I knew it is always a good idea to water your lawn infrequently but deeply, to encourage the lawn to send it’s roots deep into the ground. But I didn’t realize using a lawn treatment like Scotts Turf Builder would also help encourage that deep rooted growth. Anyone who’s been through Oklahoma in the summer knows that by mid-August we are usually praying for rain in a big way, so anything that helps our lawn withstand the stress of triple-digets is a blessing to us.
The Scotts Turf Builder also provides a balanced feeding for the grass which means I can’t accidentally over-apply it as I did with our tomatoes one year (burning them and killing two completely). And as I mentioned, the pet-friendly and kid-friendly aspects are a must for me and the reason I’ve avoided many of the lawn applications in the past.
With the recent storms and hail damage we did have spots in the yard that are in need of a little TLC. Scotts Turf Builder seems to be making a difference in the thickness and lushness of the lawn’s appearance and I expect that continue over the next few weeks with regular mowing and watering.
