Could you substantiate what your complaint is? After reading the label, it
appears to just be a fertilizer with a bit of insecticide in it. Formulation
is 28-3-8 vs regular old Turf Builder is 29-3-4.
I agree. This appears to be a fertilizer that has been formulated
for turf grasses specific to the Southern states in America. I don't
see any particularly misleading claims for this product. Although
I haven't seen a bag of this product, it is my impression that Scott's
is not claiming that it has any hot weather advantages over other
Scott's products, such as Turfbuilders. They do claim that the
formulation is better for typical southern varieties of grass. The
NPK has been tweeked a bit, along with adding a bit of Iron.
I own and use many different fertilizers and I attempt to use the
optimal one for each application. I'd never put lawn fertilizer on
my tomato crop, or vice versa. If I had a southern lawn and I owned
many bags of traditional Scott's Turfbuilder, I wouldn't hesitate to
put it on the lawn. But if I were purchasing new bags of lawn fertilizer,
why not buy something that is optimized for my turf?
