Scotts 4-Step Program Step 2: Weed Control plus Lawn Food

You’ve successfully completed your first application in the Scotts 4-Step Program, Scotts Step 1, Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Food.  See?  That wasn’t so bad now, was it?  Now on to Step 2!

Step 2 is very important as it’s the Weed Control plus Lawn Food portion of the Scotts 4-Step Program.  You will want to apply Step 2 in late Spring, between April & June, but no less than 30 days after Step 1 is applied.  Now while you were able to apply Step 1 to dry grass, it’s best to apply Step 2 to a moistened lawn.  Just give it a thorough watering or apply it when the dew is on the grass.  This will help the particles stick to the grass.

Scotts Step 2 will help kill those pesky dandelions, clover, and other broadleaf weeds.  At the same time it feeds your healthy grass to build thick turf from the roots up.

The next step, Scotts Step 3 should be taken care of in the hot summer months.  And don’t forget to check out other tips & tricks in our Lawn Care Sections in the News Room.
