A beautifully green lawn is just a spray away with Scotts Lawn Builder Extreme Green. With the easy to use hose-on formula, your lawn quickly absorbs the fertiliser to give a richer, greener colour in just a few days

When to use



  • Easy to apply, Extreme Green Liquid is readily absorbed by grass leaves and roots
  • The nitrogen content is highly soluble and quickly absorbed to provide a rapid greening response. Perfect for when you want the lawn looking great for a special occasion.
  • It goes to work immediately and is effective whether it is absorbed through leaves/blades of grasses or roots
  • The 1L Easy Sprayer bottle with a fast hose-on application is perfect for small to medium-sized lawns, covering up to 180 m2
  • Extreme Green is phosphorus-free, which means it can be safely used anywhere in New Zealand without posing any risk to ground or surface water
  • Children and pets can safely re-enter lawn areas after application



  • All lawn grasses including all varieties of buffalo, couch, Santa Ana couch, kikuyu, bent, fescues and carpet grass
  • All grass substitutes such as dichondra (also known as pennywort or kidney weed), lippia, zoysia



  • Extreme Green is not recommended for use on plants other than lawn grasses and lawn substitutes. However, if there is any overspray, it will not harm your garden plants
  • Do not use on lawns less than 8 weeks old - from germination of seed or installation of instant turf. Use Scotts Lawn Builder Starter on new lawns
  • Do not use if the temperature is expected to exceed 30 degrees C - wait for a cool spell


  • Unlike most liquid fertilisers which are readily washed off plants, Extreme Green binds to leaves, stems and soil particles and will not wash off once dry
  • Easily absorbed, soluble nitrogen results in rapid greening within days of application
