Australia's most popular lawn fertiliser has an excellent reputation with home gardeners and professional turf managers alike. This innovative addition to the established range will green your lawn up in just three days.


Scotts Lawn Builderâ„¢is a slow-release fertiliser that provides continuous nutrition over a three month period
Every granule of Extreme Green contains Scotts patented time-release nitrogen as well as fast-release, readily soluble nitrogen for rapid greening
Nutrients are released at about the same rate that grass roots can take up the fertiliser so there is no wastage, run-off to waterways or damaging surge growth


How much will I need?

Extreme Green has a recommended application rate of 16g/m2

To work out how much you will need to fertilise your lawn:

Calculate the area of the lawn in square metres (multiply the length by the width)
The area multiplied by the application rate will give the exact amount of Scotts Lawn Builderâ„¢ you need
Use a set of scales to weigh it out and then add it to the spreader ready to apply - do not be tempted to add a 'bit extra for luck' because over-application may result in nitrogen burning

How do I apply it?

For best results ALWAYS use a Scotts spreader
Check your model and make sure to set it correctly before you start (settings are also on the back label of the product)
If you don't have a spreader, make sure you distribute the fertiliser evenly over the lawn - uneven applications may result in 'hot spot' burning where too much has landed in one spot
Moisten the lawn before applying
Using your spreader, apply half the required amount walking in one direction (eg north-south), then apply the remainder at 90 degrees (eg east-west)
Wait for 24 hours, then water in thoroughly - granules start working with moisture

When to Use

Extreme Green can be applied at any time of the year for rapid greening - it is not season-specific
For best results, feed your lawns three times a year - in early Spring, early Summer and Autumn
Avoid feeding lawns in cooler regions in Winter
The release of nutrients from granules is controlled by temperature
In Winter when soil temperatures are low and lawn growth is extremely slow in many areas, the granules will simply 'sit' there


IMPORTANT: This product, when wet, may cause iron stains. Be sure to sweep all granules off paths, coping, paving, driveways, shoes, etc immediately after use. Do not allow the granules to come into contact with these surfaces when they are wet

Store safely out of the reach of children and pets. This product contains iron which can be harmful to dogs' livers if eaten in quantity

SAFETY FIRST: Read the instructions on the product packaging before use and take particular note of any warnings or cautions on the label
