  • Boosted iron content promotes deeper green and stronger growth. The thicker the lawn, the less chance weeds have of taking hold - they're smothered before they become obvious and need treatment
  • Feeds for 3 months without burning when directions are followed
  • No need to water in
  • Huge 570m² Coverage
  • Suitable for all lawn grasses including all named varieties of buffalo, traditional couch, Santa Ana couch, kikuyu, bent, fescues and carpet grass

Australia's most popular lawn fertiliser has an excellent reputation with home gardeners and professional turf managers alike. The 'set and forget' solution to having a great lawn all year round, it will green your lawn up within a week of watering after application.

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 on lawns less than 8 weeks old - from germination of seed or installation of instant turf (use Scotts Lawn Builder Seed & Turf Starter)
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 particle of All Purpose 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?

All Purpose has a recommended application rate of 14g/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 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
Dry Method

Dry Method If water restrictions are in operation, apply All Purpose to the lawn without watering in
Scotts Lawn Builder™ is safe on the lawn until it next rains or the lawn needs watering when it has been applied evenly with a spreader and at the rate recommended on the bag
All Purpose is guaranteed to green the lawn within one week of the lawn receiving moisture


Fast Method

Your lawn will be greener in two days with watering
For fast results apply to moist lawn, wait 24 hours and then water in thoroughly
For a complete guide on How to Use Scotts Lawn Builder™ All Purpose Slow Release Lawn Fertiliser, watch the video on this page and always check the packaging

WHEN TO USE

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


SAFETY INFORMATION

IMPORTANT: This product, when wet, will cause iron stains. Be sure to sweep all granules off paths, coping, paving, diveways, 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
