Scotts 4-Step Lawn Program Step One

Summer is upon us, no matter how hard Mother Nature is trying to fight it this year.  That also means it’s time to get your lawn back into tip-top shape.  You’re closer than you think to the lawn you’ve always wanted.  In fact, you’re only four steps away.

With Scotts 4-Step Annual Program you get an effective and simple deep-feeding system that takes the guesswork out of beautiful lawns.  Scotts 4-Step stakes care of what you don’t want (crabgrass, dandelions, insects and thin spots) and gives you what you do; thick, green, beautiful grass.

Begin with Step 1 in early spring, usually between February and April.  You’ll want to apply it before the third or fourth mowing, before temperatures are regularly in the 80s.  Apply it when the grass is dry, and preferably with a Scotts Spreader to ensure even coverage.  Step 1 doesn’t need to be watered in, but for the best results it should receive ¼ to ½ inch of water within 2-3 days of application.

Scotts Step 1 will prevent crabgrass along with 8 other problem weeds, and help build a thick, green lawn from the roots up.  Next month we’ll cover Scotts Step 2: Weed Control Plus Lawn Food.  In June we’ll go over the importance of Scotts Step 3, Lawn Food with 2% Iron.  Finally we’ll finish with Scotts Step 4, Fall Lawn Food.
