Rated 5 out of 5 by fdk344 from Worked great. Renovation details: Early June seeding. After using Quikpro on about 4500-5000 sq ft of Roughstalk Bluegrass (poa trivialis), I used “Step One for Seeding” to spot seed a couple dozen areas. I used Scott’s PA seed, I think it’s the same as the NE seed. Previous lawn health: My lawn mostly consists of K-31, perennial rye, and KY bluegrass. I have some warm season grasses as well, but I hate them and I’ve wiped most of them out with Q4. I’ve been killing quack grass, nimblewill, JP stiltgrass as well. Still haven’t gotten the mousear chickweed to stop coming back in the spring. Method I didn’t disturb the soil after Quikpro. I waited, watched. Hand weeded some smaller weeds and, top coated everything with mushroom soil. I Applied Scotts Step 1 Starter after rolling/seeding/strawing – probably right after the last rolling. Results: I had no whitening of any of cool season grasses. The only whitening I saw was on the nutsedge and purslane that came up. Even with the nutsedge that came up, considering, I had pretty good suppression of purslane, smartweed, chickweed, and crabgrass. It didn’t affect the oat grass in the topsoil or the mushrooms for that matter. Pretty satisfied with result, great germination, less where I had washout which isn’t the products fault.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ryan600 from So disappointed I loamed and seeded plow damage, and over seeded my entire lawn.. my local garden center recommended step 1 for seeding. Reading the package it said for newly seeded and over seeded lawns. It also said that whitening can occur.. but this is crazy, my whole lawn looks terrible. I hope this is truly only temporary.. I can not recommend this product.
Rated 2 out of 5 by avrick from Disappointing results I’ve used Scotts products for years with very good results. This product has discolored all my new planted grass from last fall. My lawn has multiple spots of yellow and yelowish white grass. Extremely disappointing. and there is clover that was not killed as anticipated.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mt830 from The worst We bought this to stop crabgrass and weeds. After applying it the next week we had a ton of dandelions come out. It seems the weeds love it. We will never purchase it again
Rated 1 out of 5 by SCchelmsford from Don’t Use This Product I spent a lot of time, sweat, and money on preparing my front lawn for reseeding, and over seeding. I did everything right, except find and read these other reviews for this product. Top soil was raked evenly, this Step 1 for Seeding was spread according to the correct distribution, seed was spread. Whole lawn was rolled, fluffed up, and watered properly at dawn and dust. It has been 17 days without a single seed germanization. Nothing! My local garden store recommended this product, and I have since shared the story with them and to never recommend this product to anyone again. Extremely dissapointed with this product!
Rated 1 out of 5 by JPH 13 from Yellow/white streaking across my yard! Put this down over two weeks ago and my yard looks terrible! I have light yellow streaks across the front yard, so embarrassing!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Another Unhappy Customer from Total Disaster! Bought 3 – 15,000 square foot – 4 step programs for our large lawns, a substantial investment. Chose Step 1 for seeding solely on the recommendation of our nursery rep. We are just sick to see we have the same problem so many others have faced with the yellow spotting after checking the problem on line. The lawn looks horrible and is getting worse 3 weeks after the yellowing started. Previous reviews indicate Scotts has known about this problem for a while and should be advising retailers of this problem. Had we known this we never would have purchased. Scott’s – what can you do to make this right with your customers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ChrisN from Turns grass whitish yellow I applied this product to my entire lawn area, including some newly loamed areas, and then had the new loam hydroseeded. It’s been 16 days since the hydroseed and I have seen 0% germination, and patches of my existing grass have turned a whitish yellow. I’m really disappointed with this product so far, and I’m concerned that the hydroseed won’t germinate and I’ll have wasted money not only on the Scotts product but also the hydro seed.
