Scotts® 4-Step® Lawn Care program

Without proper care, your lawn can quickly become a battleground of grass vs. weeds. Fortunately, there’s no need for a turf war, thanks to our annual lawn care plan, the Scotts 4-Step program. We’ll show you exactly how and when to apply the steps to turn your lawn into one worthy of cookouts, kids, play and coveted by your neighbors.

Step 1® Crabgrass Preventer Plus Lawn Food

Scotts Step 1 Crabgrass Preventer Plus Lawn Food can improve your lawn’s ability to absorb water and nutrients. Apply Step 1 in early spring, anytime between March and April when temperatures are still cool, for a fast green-up after winter. It also prevents and controls crabgrass for up to four months.

Lime and Grass Seed

Before moving onto Step 2, we recommend adding lime and grass seed treatments. Lime, applied between March and May, counteracts the acidity of the soil and restores depleted nutrients, so fertilizers work more efficiently, saving you money. From April to May, use grass seed for new lawns or patching to help grow quicker, thicker, greener grass, guaranteed!

Step 2® Weed Control Plus Lawn Food

Scotts Step 2 Weed Control Plus Lawn Food helps build thick, green turf from the roots up. Using Scotts Exclusive Particle Technology, it attacks the weeds you see and the ones you don’t. Apply Step 2 in late spring, anytime between May and June, but be sure to wait 4–6 weeks after applying Step 1.

Step 3® Lawn Food With 2% Iron

Scotts Step 3 Lawn Food With 2% Iron gives your lawn a mid-season boost. It strengthens the lawn against heat and drought. Apply in the summer, between July and August, for best results.

Step 4® Fall Lawn Food

Scotts Step 4 Fall Lawn Food assists to strengthen your lawn before the winds of winter begin to batter it. It helps build stronger roots for the winter, so you’ll see a thicker, greener lawn in the spring. Apply 4–6 weeks after Step 3, between September and October, for best results.


To round out your annual lawn care plan, we recommend using Winterization to improve your lawn’s ability to absorb water and nutrients before its winter slumber.
