Scotts Lawn Builder Lawn Food is the ultimate choice of the lawn expert who wants premium results and is happy to indulge the lawn with regular care. Four applications a year is all that is needed for top-quality results and a stunning looking lawn throughout the year.

There are four different Scotts Lawn Builder Lawn Food products that answer all the needs of your lawn. They all feature a no-scorch formula and slow release nutrients to provide safe and assured feeding that lasts for months. In just 7 days the grass will be greener, as well as providing long-term nutrients that last for up to 8 weeks. You can start this programme at any time of the year; just allow 2 months between treatments in spring and summer.

Early Spring (March to April)

Apply lawn food to feed and green your lawn. If moss is a problem use moss controlling lawn food to green the lawn and control moss.

Late Spring (May to June)

When weeds creep in, use weed controlling lawn food. It kills most broad-leaved weeds such as clover, daisies, dandelions, etc.

Summer (July to August)

A further treatment of lawn food will give you a great looking lawn you can be proud of all summer.

Autumn (September to October)

Apply Autumn lawn food. This high potassium treatment will strengthen the grass, preparing it for the rigours of winter, and provide a better quality lawn for the following spring.


You can use an adjustable wheeled spreader for accurate application of lawn food ranges. With a 45cm spreading width, it will easily and accurately apply your selected lawn product. For larger lawns, a rotary spreader is ideal for quick and easy application.
