How much do I need?

If unsure about the size of your lawn, general guidelines are that a typical 1/4 acre lot with home, driveway, walkway and landscaping requires a 5,000 sq. ft bag. A 1/2 acre lot with a home and landscaping features typically requires a 10,000 sq. ft bag. For larger properties from 1 to 2 acres or more, you will need to estimate the amount of additional grass area and include these in your coverage calculation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product On The Market This is the best, and as far as I can tell, the only true Starter Fertilizer with Crabgrass Preventer on the market. I have been using Greenview's product for about 4 years now and when applied in April, I get virtually no crabgrass through late July, August, and early September. The product is a little expensive but worth the price. For many years, I used a well-known competitors product but they stopped making it although they are trying to pass off a new cheaper product as just as good as the old product. This is not true. If Greenview stopped making this product I would be lost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seed starter fertilizer with siduron fails! This August, I bought Greenview Tall fescue Sun and Shade Blend. The package states that there's 0.02% weed seeds, so I bought together the seed starter fertilizer with siduron to suppress the weed seeds from germinating when I use the grass seeds. In about a week, the grass seeds germinate and so did the weed seeds. I only seed areas that are bare and only those areas sprout weeds, The rest of the lawn didn't sprout weeds. Now I have to keep looking for either grass seeds without weed seeds or another herbicide that can suppress weed seeds while not harming the grass seeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 in 1 - great product Does a very nice job of keeping crabgrass away and also getting new grass / seed growing - highly recommend. I have used this for 2 seasons now in the early spring and will continue to do so. It also greens up mature lawns nicely and promotes root growth .
