Why Choose the Scott’s 4-Step Program?

Starting next month, Joe’s Market Basket will have in stock the Scott’s 4-Step Program, helping homeowners create the yard of their dreams! Without a little care and TLC, your yard can quickly become filled with weeds instead of beautiful, lush grass. The 4-Step Program is the most requested lawn care plan. Just follow the easy steps provided by Scotts to ensure a lawn that’s enviable all year long! Want a perfect spot to spend the long summer days and warm summer nights? You’re in the right place!

Step 1 – Crabgrass Preventer Plus Lawn Food
Apply Step 1 in early spring, anytime between February and April (before Easter) when temps are still cool and under 80 degrees. With this product, crabgrass is prevented before it can even germinate! Know what else it does? Step 1 also feeds a winter-weary lawn, helping it to be more green. Visit Joe’s Market Basket for your Step-4 program now, buying all four bags so you’re prepped and ready to go! Two different sizes offered.

Step 2 – Weed Control Plus Lawn Food
Step 2 stops those dandelions from growing! The best time to apply Step 2 is in late spring, between April and June (near Memorial Day). Make sure you wait between 4-6 weeks after applying Step 1. Step 2 does a great job killing weeds like dandelions, while also feeding and nourishing the lawn. It builds the thick, green turf that will make your neighbors jealous. It’s also best to apply Step 2 on a calm day with a damp lawn, but NOT when rain is expected in the next 24 hours.

Step 3 – Lawn Food with 2% Iron
Step 3 can be used to get your yard even greener! This mid-season boost is best between June and August, close to Independence Day. Water after application if rain is not in the forecast. Spot treat weeds on an as-needed basis. Step 3 does an excellent job feeding and strengthening the lawn against the summer heat and droughts.

Step 4 – Fall Lawn Food
The timing for applying Step 4 is ideal 6 weeks after Step 3 and in between the months of August and November. Not only does it make your yard greener, it helps make it stronger and protects it for a better lawn when spring rolls around again. You can apply Step 4 from Labor Day until mid-October and water to speed greening, if desired.
