Over the last few months I must have used about 30 bags of this soil to attempt to recover my dying lawn in Southern California. I have used it with grass seed as well as Sod. Grass seed germinates in about 7 days and grows very fast. Put this down, and cover with sod and the sod grows dark green and thick. Works great.
Recently I have just been dumping this soil over some of areas of my lawn that are half alive (fescue), raking it out to thinly cover an area and watering. The grass immediately begins to take off and turns dark green within 7 days. Much more than the adjacent area that is also watered and does not have this soil on it. Sometimes (1 out of 10) the grass will turn yellow in 3 days making me think it is going to burn- but then it recovers and turns dark green and grows rapidly. Perhaps some bags have more fertilizer than others which causes this temporary yellow response? Just my guess.
Anyway, I wish they had larger bags and that this was cheaper. Smells bad (meaning good to a farmer) for about 5 days after application.

It is good feed for your lawn. Lay a thin layer and rake it in once a year. Water and your grass is good to go. Not bad for the price compared to the other stuff out there. Some mixes have mushroom spores so white mushrooms may pop up on your lawn. I got about 12 or so mushrooms and picked them out slowly so no spores spread. They looked good enough to eat but...

No smell and the grass fills in great when over-seeding.

Has worked great for laying down sod, mixing with my red clay to amend.
