The following is taken from a review of Evergreen Extreme Green on Amazon:
"... This stuff works - it's got all the right ingredients - but the instructions should include a comprehensive list of what NOT to do:
Don't apply too soon after cutting - you'll scorch your lawn
Don't apply even a single microgramme more than the specified dose - you'll scorch your lawn
Don't apply it by hand, as it won't go on evenly and - you'll scorch your lawn
However you apply it, don't neglect to sweep it around with a soft brush to even it out, otherwise - you'll scorch your lawn
Don't neglect to water it in, even if you're expecting rain soon, otherwise - you'll scorch your lawn
Check out the attached video (no longer available) - that's my lawn a week after application. The previous week, it looked like Centre Court at the all-England club before a stroke has been played.
Your lawn (mine, too - yes, really) will recover from poor application (time, watering and a little grass seed), but this product really needs professional application rather than DIY use. My advice would be to get some water-soluble product as that's far harder to make a mess of.
Don't say you weren't warned.
Edit: it's been a couple of weeks since I applied it and I have to say the lawn is doing really well where I didn't devastate it - lush, healthy, growing well and free of moss. I'm giving this stuff another star..."
