Description

Feed your lawn with the Scotts® 4 Step® Annual Program. This convenient 3-step version of the program allows for a later start to lawn care. Use Step 2 Weed Control plus Lawn Food in late spring, Step 3 Lawn Food with 2% Iron in summer, and Step 4 Lawn Food in fall. Step 2 controls chickweed, clover, dandelion, dollarweed, and other weeds (as listed). Allow a minimum of 30 days between Step 2 applications and 4-6 weeks between Step 3 and Step 4 applications; do not apply Step 2 more than twice a year. Apply Step® products during calm weather when rain is not expected for the next 24 hours. These products do not need to be watered in. However during dry seasons, watering will speed up the greening process for Step 3 and Step 4. Do not apply Step® products near storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters, or surface waters. Sweep run-off product on sidewalks, driveways, or streets back onto treated areas. For best results, apply each product with a Scotts® broadcast, rotary, or drop spreader according to label directions for an even application. Covers up to 15,000 sq. ft. of lawn.

When and Where to Use

Where Not to Use

  • Step 2 should not be used on St. Augustinegrass, Floratam, Dichondra, Lippia, Carpetgrass or Bentgrass lawns. Do not apply any STEP® product near water, storm drains, drainage ditches or if heavy rain is expected.

Where to Use

  • Applications should only be made to grass.

When to Apply

  • Apply one product per season. Applications should be made on a calm day. Apply Step 2 when weeds are actively growing and daytime temperatures are consistently above 60° F. You should wait until any new grass has been mowed at least four times before applying Step 2. If you are planning to seed, sod or sprig you should wait at least one month after you have applied Step 2 to the area to be worked on. Step 2 should not be applied if rain is expected within 24 hours. Step 3 and 4 can be applied anytime during the growing season.

How Often to Apply

  • Allow a 4-6 week interval between applications. Do not apply Step 2 more than twice a year. In Florida you can make 4 annual feedings of Step 3 and Step 4 with the exception of bahiagrass and centipedegrass (2 feedings in the north and 3 feedings in the central and south).

Watering Tips

Using with Other Products

  • Achieve the best results by using a Scotts® spreader for an even application.

Mixing Directions

Our Environment

Step 2 is toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates and may adversely affect non-target plants. Drift and runoff may be hazardous to aquatic organisms in water adjacent to treated areas. To protect the environment, do not allow pesticide to enter or runoff into storm drains, drainage ditches, gutters or surface waters. Applying this product in calm weather when rain is not predicted for the next 24 hours will help ensure that wind or rain does not blow or wash the pesticide off the treatment area. Sweeping any product that lands on a driveway, sidewalk, or street back onto the treated area of the lawn will help prevent run off to water bodies and drainage ditches. This chemical has properties and characteristics associated with chemicals detected in groundwater. The use of this chemical in areas where soils are permeable, particularly where the water table is shallow, may result in groundwater contamination. Application around a cistern or well may result in contamination of drinking water or groundwater.
