Answer: 
No. There is too much refuse in this product to put in your yard. You'll have to sift it all out first. These bags contain rocks, sticks, and other debris.

Answer: 
You need to find out what is causing your bald area first. Too little sun? Bad, hard ground? No watering? What kind of grass are you trying to grow? But buying manure will not fix your problem alone. I would dig up your soil to see what you is going on. Compacted soil? Rocks? Personally, I love sand for a lawn. Great drainage. Easy weed pulling. Great root growing soil. I only use manure as a topping Read More

I only use manure as a topping after I have overseeded my lawn for the winter. It keeps the seed covered and moist during the first few weeks after overseeding. Read Less

Answer: 
MIx it with a bag of topsoil first. Even though they say its composted it may not be finished and steer manure can be strong stuff. Mixing it will make sure you don't burn your lawn. I do that for my lawn and for filling in depressions to.

Answer: 
First what type of yard/grass/sod and location do you have. Too much of any type of manure will burn the grass. I recommend once the grass is visible apply a thin layer of composted manure to the entire surface of the lawn. Use a fertilizer spreader works best. if not using the spreader and are doing patch work any type of manure blend for grass fertilizing It has to be mixed with a minimum of 25%Manure Read More

Gradually work the manure into your grass and soil, it is like any commercial man made fertilizer, too much and it will burn everything around it. Also most important composted manure can harbor dangerous bacteria that can lead to illness. Purchase the manure from reputable dealers. Read Less

Answer: 
No. It will burn your affected area. If you do it, do it sparingly. To use this as soil won't work. I have gone that route and it burned my lawn and plants. But lesson learned and if you do it in moderation, it won't necessarily make grass grow, but it will make your soil conducive to growth. You will have to add grass seed or similar to make something actually grow in the affected area.

Answer: 
I think so. I would work it into the soil of the affected area by 2 inches deep. water regularly.
To be safe, you can try 1 bag in a 5'x5' area. I am assuming that the bald patch is due to lack of top soil. Otherwise, you may have a different problem (and a different solution).

Answer: 
I`ll admit this product isn`t perfect but I haven`t noticed getting any weeds from it. Maybe I`m just lucky. You also need to tell your gardener about weed and feed to help keep the weeds out. Home Depot has what you will need.

Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot, Gardner. This steer manure is only carried in select Home Depot stores and is not available online. You will need to speak to a specialist in your local store to go over pricing an availability. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future.

Answer: 
Aged? When the cattle pens are cleaned it is loaded and delivered to the bagging facility. It is aged in the cattle pens until it smells so bad they have to clean the yards, again at the bagging facility awaiting bagging and again in the bags at the store. If when you open the bag and yours eyes begin to water, then its not aged.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not really manure, but serviceable compost Bought a bag in Portland, OR just to see what I was getting (per the other reviews re: variable contents). Mine was perfectly fine compost, very similar to bagged planting compost mixes I've bought in the past. Couldn't smell even a hint of manure, but it's 1/2 to 1/3 the price of planting compost. If you're looking for manure, this won't give it to you, but if you're looking for super-cheap planting compost in Portland, this ain't bad. August 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stuff I bought 20 bags. All were beautiful, rich black, and debris free. July 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Just sawdust No manure. Just sawdust with some moisture. Glad it doesn't has rocks. Glad I only bought one bag. It's from the store in Bellevue, Washington. June 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible product The bags I got were nothing but sticks and rocks. I used it all in a space I'm going to plant succulents. That was all it was good for. I will never purchase this product again. As stated in one of the reviews, this product may not be consistent from one area of the country to another. June 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality depends on where you live Read the reviews and note which states the "bad" reviews are from. This is not a universal product made at one location and distributed across the country. Here in Colorado manure is available locally from the cattle finishing farms and it is real manure. As you can see the reviews are quite different from California. No one would transport tons of cattle manure across the country to make a $1.50 bag of manure blend. Any available real manure in CA would be used by the farms producing "organic" vegetables and fruit. So they probably bulk-up ("blend") the bag with locally available material, rocks from all of the rock slides. This is just like the "top soil". Here in CO it is largely pine bark, in Florida it is material from local trees and shrubs, north in Ohio & Michigan its real peat. These products are produced locally under contract with the supplier and put in the same bags. May 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works perfect works for me. every one plants different, if my plants are heathly an happy then I'm happy. iv been using it for years, you can use it by its self, or mix it with all types of other soils, this product gets 5 stars from me... thanks May 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 50% wood chips this product is 50% wood chips I guess it would be ok for a flower bed . I wanted to use it as a seed cover for my yard but I don't want a bunch of wood chips in my yard that will take at least 5 years to decompose NOT GOOD FOR YARDS May 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Has worked for me for years This is what I use with my vegetables, I rarely have any stones or plastic that others have mentioned. My soil smells like manure for sure, and the soil is more friable. Sometimes I do add some fertilizer for my tomatoes but for everything else, this is all I need. Also, it's one cubic foot so it's easy to handle. So many amendments now are 2 cubic foot and weighs over 30 lbs. This is much easier on the wallet, too. March 31, 2016
