Both Steph and I don't take care of our yards in any meaningful way. Although we both would like a less weed filled and green yard, we've never tried to sort out the options on how to do that.
When we were offered the opportunity to work with The Home Depot and Scotts® using just two products, it was an easy 'yes!' We are both looking forward to improvements in our yards this season.
Take a look at how you can become your "neighborhood lawn pioneer!"
The Turf Builder Triple Action South Lawn Fertilizer (if you're not in the south, you'll have a fertilized designed for more northern climates) will kill common yard weeds like this clover, as well as dollar weeds, dandelion, chickweed and more. Check the back of the bag for details or head to their website. We found a lot of good information on the website.
The Scotts® "My Lawn" app is easy to use and provides a handy calculator to determine how much product you'll need for your yard. Steph's yard is tiny, under 400 square feet, so one bag will do her yard and many of her neighbors! She's willing to share. Actually, my yard is much bigger so the leftover will be used at my house!
And now, just simply walk around the perimeter and then the interior of the yard dispensing the product. Use the edge guard feature of the spreader while walking the perimeter to keep the product off sidewalks, the driveway, and off the street. Don't forget to turn this feature off when you walk the interior part of the lawn. (I warn you because I may have failed to disengage this feature. Oops!)
Three days after we applied the Turf Builder Triple Action South, we were excited to see the weeds already starting to wither! In eight weeks we'll be applying the exclusive to The Home Depot, bag of UltraFeed™. We can wait to see the results!
After watering in the Turf Builder Tripe Action South, be sure to let it dry throughly before allowing children or pets into the area. (In the video, you can catch a glimpse of Steph's greyhounds watching us work through the window!)
This was such an easy and uncomplicated process. Scotts® has done a good job making this a very doable DIY project for even the most brown-thumbed homeowners like us!
So, like Steph and I, “Are you ready to achieve your ultimate lawn goals?”
