Safety from the ground up

Everything we do centers on doing the right thing for you and your family.

Our Trusted Path

The process we use for creating highly effective products with your safety in mind.

We constantly talk with gardeners and growers. We pay close attention to the things they want to accomplish and the problems they face. We ask “What if? Why not?” We turn these questions over to some of the best scientists and innovators in our industry. We look for new ideas and new ways to make our current products even better. Then, we set our sights on solving them.

We focus relentlessly on safety. We diligently work to understand federal and state requirements from the start, ensuring every product meets or exceeds their stringent standards. In fact, because we distribute products nationally, we are able to use some of the highest regulatory standards throughout the country to guide our product development process. If it’s required anywhere, we strive to do it everywhere.

Our rigorous approach to solving the needs of gardeners and growers is led by our R&D team, the largest in the world dedicated to lawns, gardens and hydroponic growing. We have 100+ scientists representing disciplines ranging from soil science to molecular biology; we have more than 900 acres in 3 states growing everything from tomatoes to turfgrass. Our team has the knowledge, curiosity and innovation expertise necessary, whether the needs relate to the product, the packaging it comes in or how it’s used and stored.

Gardeners and growers are creative souls. There’s always another corner of the backyard to turn into a bed, always another place to tuck in a container, always another window with an appetite for a box. We’re the same way. We are never done creating. Even after a product is in the marketplace, we monitor how gardeners and growers are using and experiencing it. And if we think there could be a better way, we go looking for it.

How it comes to life

Our Trusted Path helps gardeners tackle their biggest challenges.

Clean water for the planet

We share gardeners’ concerns about harmful algae blooms due to nutrient pollution in waterways. So we changed the recipe of Scotts® Turf Builder lawn maintenance products so that gardeners could be confident they weren’t contributing to the problem.
