Seaweed fertiliser for lawns

Seeking opinions please on whether seaweed fertiliser e.g Maxicrop offers any advantages over the traditional grass fertiliser. I don't use 4 in 1 as the dog likes to eat grass on occasion but stick to Scotts aftercut

    Seaweed extract is a plant tonic really and not a complete plant food.
    It contains plenty of trace minerals vital for growth and health that are sometimes missing.
    It contains some nitrogen, but it's not a general purpose plant food.
    I use lots of the stuff and put seaweed meal on the borders - smells like the sea-side, so if you have plenty it will help on your lawn - a bit

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
