Hello, i have been using Scotts products step 1-5 and any other product they recomended to me such as grub x and weed control etc. I have owned my home for 11 years now and when i first moved in the lawn was in need. I scratched the lawn deep with a dethacher and then over seeded with Sotts family seed. and started using there products. the first two seasons i had the perfect lawn that could have been on there catolog cover. The next season and there after my lawn starts out as the perfect lawn and then just about this time of year the red thread fungus takes over. I call scotts and get the same answer every time. Use the fungus control all summer every 2 to 3 weeks and overseed with scotts seed. I tried this once and what a waist of money. the lawn just browns out. I water at least an inch a week and only once a week heavy. Non of my neighbors use Scotts and non of them get the fungus. I truly am starting to believe that Scotts products are causing the problems so it becomes a circle and they make money. I want to start using only natural stuff and no chemicals. Does anyone out here have any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks, Mike from Mass.
