Installation

SUITABLE FOR

All lawn grasses including all named varieties of buffalo, traditional 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


NOT SUITABLE FOR

Scotts Lawn Builder™ is not recommended for use on plants other than lawn grasses and lawn substitutes
Do not use if the temperature is expected to exceed 30 degrees C - wait for a cool spell

HOW IT WORKS

Scotts Lawn Builder™ is a slow-release fertiliser that provides continuous nutrition over a three month period
Every granule of Starter contains Scotts patented time-release nitrogen
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 TO USE

How much will I need?

Starter has a recommended application rate of 22g/m2

To work out how much you will need to fertilise your new lawn or seed bed:

Calculate the area in square metres (multiply the length by the width)
The area multiplied by the application rate will give the exact amount of Scotts Lawn Builder™ 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
When do I fertilise next?

To keep new lawns growing well, we recommend an application of Scotts Lawn Builder™ All Purpose three months after sowing seed or laying turf
As the new grass becomes established, it needs feeding on a regular basis if it is to thrive and stay dense and vigorous. Underfed lawns thin out over time, allowing weeds and other problems to appear
For a complete guide on How to Use Scotts Lawn Builder™ Starter Slow Release Lawn Fertiliser, watch the video on this page and always check the packaging


WHEN TO USE

Before or after seeding - you can sow grass seed either immediately before or after applying Starter - no waiting needed
Starter can be used in the final preparation of soil for the laying of instant turf, or it can be applied after the turf has been installed


SAFETY INFORMATION
