    I have used Scotts and Superior (Fleet Farm) brands of fertilizer with less than noticeable results. I don't really notice the grass greening up, growing, or thickening up at all. I am using the right amount and being careful when applying it.

    Has anyone used Lesco's fertilizer? How would you rate the results with it?

    Thanks for all opinions,

    Joel B.

    SCOTTS brand sucks. JMO I like LESCO. Comparing scotts with lesco is like comparing an exmark to a MTD lawnmower.

    But MTD makes the Lesco mower. So how could their fert. be better?

    i'm not a fan of scotts, then again i'm not a lesco fan either. but i'd say this, if you're not getting results....applicator error....weather conditions...pH, possibally but i assume you do more than one or two lawns and pH shouldnt be a problem on every lawn?

    My favorite granular fertilizer is the Par-Ex brand.

    Lesco fert with iron does it for me......I suggest a soil test if it's not greening up appropriately.
