Jodi Marks: You know, I find it harder and harder every year to predict what the weather in the summer is going to be like. I mean, you never know. Is it going to rain? Are we going to have a drought? How’s my lawn going to look?

Well, Scotts has come out with a Turf Builder. It’s going to help eliminate some of that guess work. Take a look at this. This is called their Turf Builder with SummerGuard. And what that SummerGuard does is it helps resist and repel bugs. It also kills them. It also strengthens the lawn. And there’s a thing called WaterSmart formula in there. So, what that WaterSmart formula does is it helps the roots and the plants and the flowers and also your grass absorb and maintain water in case there is a drought.

Now, it also fertilizes your lawn without burning it up. Of course, because you don’t want that during the summer. So this is a great, easy application that you can put on your lawn or in your garden. And it will help kind of strengthen the roots so that you’ll have a beautiful green lawn all summer long.


  1. Is there a problem if I apply Scotts Summerguard with Watersmart in the spring or use as a replacement for my regular fertilizer?

  2. I used Scott turf builder summertime on Friday 6/22 and there are big strips of burnt grass now. Can you advise if I did something wrong and how do I repair it? Will my grass come back? It was fine before I put the fertilizer down.

    • Hi, Donna!

      Fertilizer burn isn’t always fatal, and it’s hard to predict whether or not your lawn will recover. It depends on the amount and type of fertilizer that was applied, the moisture available, and the overall health of the grass.

      A slightly yellow lawn is likely to recover, while crispy brown grass may not. Recovery of your lawn also depends on how quickly you intervene.

      Thanks for your question.

  3. 1. Is it ok that I applied summer guard late spring (6.8) ?

    2. 8 weeks ago in late April I applied Scott’s weed and feed so when would I apply weed and feed again nor that I applied summer guard ?

    I love Scott’s product so I want to get a good yearly schedule together that I can use every year. Any help with this ?

  4. I have one and a half acres of white clover that I do not like. How do I get rid of it? In the fall I have put down Scotts brood leaf control but how about now.

  5. Scott’s has a my lawn app that answers almost all the questions here. I use it and it helps track what I’ve done.
