UPDATE: The app stopped giving notifications about a year ago. I have to remember to check it periodically which is easy to forget because it needs checking so infrequently. Really renders the app not too useful anymore. Might try deleting and reinstalling it. For what it is, it's nice but it could do more with very little developer effort. As you might expect, it's very much centered around sales of Scott's products. It would be nice if you could track when you run your sprinklers to juxtapose against the rolling 7 day rainfall. It would also be nice to have other, non product related lawn care tips such as what approx length to trim your type of lawn to and at what time of year.
I have used this for the past 2 years. I almost lost my yard to grub worms. I used their grub controller and I swapped out fertilizes that I had in my garage that had the same fertilizers by other companies until I ran out of the other ones. I spent under $100 per year fertilizing and protecting my lawn and it went from a brown thin grass yard to a thick green yard in 2 years. So it saved me several thousand dollars to replant my grass... and local companies were charging my neighbors over $120 per quarter. So I saved a lot of money using this.
Love this APP. Our neighbors pay hundreds a year, with this app I spend about 1/4 what they do and have the best looking lawn in the neighborhood simply by following the instructions! Haven't figured out how to add a step in the plan tho.
Very wonky app. The only feature I found useful was lawn size GPS measurement. The rainfall totals are wrong and it also never updates manual figures. The activities feature is not a huge bonus as it's something you can do fairly easily with your android calendar or tasks app. 07-14-17 update: I switched phones but can't remember my password. The forgot password link in the app doesn't work so I did it on the website. Waited a few minutes and still didn't get a reset email so I had a chat with customer service. Turns out it takes up to 48 hours for the reset password to come in.
Rainfall amount doesn't update correctly. I'm on the road all week and need to know whether I need to have sprinklers turned on. The app is useless to me know.
This is a great app that keeps me updated on when and what to apply to my lawn. The Scott's products are good as well. My lawns is looking great.....better than my neighbor's who have professional lawn spraying companies. The app also tracks the total weekly rainfall amount for my area, so I know when to adjust my irrigation. This app saves me a lot of money!
