I used this as an amendment for the native soil, which has a high alkaline base. Seeded lawn area, and within days, had grass popping up. Was able to grow a beautiful lawn in the 105 degree heat using this product. Also works great as a topper when you want to get a jump start on the spring growing season! Highly recommend for first time lawn artists

Used this topper soil to lay about a 1/2" of soil over new grass seed when it was 110 degrees out. It's great quality and feels like garden soil, very impressed. I got about 50 sq ft out of a bag.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tvs75 Great Bulk Topper - Used In Conjunction With Others
I would recommend this product if used in conjunction with other toppers. This is a great bulk purchase and should be used to fill in the gaps or hit targeted spots for over-topping. I have bought this product from time to time over the years. Sometimes you get a really great batch that is nearly all soil. Other times you get some dryer that looks like clay dust. I think that is just the way it is processed and packaged. I will say I got more good soil than dry soil, but it is worth noting that it does happen. I especially like this topper as filler in the garden. You get twice as much as other name brands for the price. So in that regards and if used properly, works for me!

Bought several of these bags on the recommendation of a personal friend who is a landscaper. Used as directed to grow new grass seed. Worked, but grew tons of weeds that I worked hard and prepped for months to avoid. Weed types were not previously present, so I know they came from an outside source. Would look at other options next time.

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.

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.
