It's good for the bees. Can't wait to see what neighbors say.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dbix Good germination and exactly as advertised
I planted the grass seed very quickly, I did not use the compost like the directions said, I just raked it in and kept it wet. Even with just 3% microclover there is plenty of clover showing up to feed the grass. I could have done a much better job seeding the lawn but it still came up and is looking great after the 2nd mowing. I did use a prefertilizer and I kept it very moist for about a month. I did have lots of weed seeds come up but my lawn used to a be a fallow field so that is to be expected. I will update the picture when it is all filled in and matured.

I lightly raked up the dead grass in the bare spots, then tossed the grass seed on the mostly bare patches of ground, covering them well, then got a bag of potting soil and tossed a thin layer on top to hide the seed from the birds and to hold moisture. Then turned on the sprinklers almost daily for about 2 minutes.
In 10 days the seed sprouted and I've now cut it for the first time and it's really filled & blended in well.
Overall, I am happy with it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JosephC Micro clover adds nitrogen to the soil naturally and is drought resistant
Came up nicely, would have like to see more clover. Why are Home Depot stores on Long Island, NY not carrying this product. Chemical fertilizers are contaminating our water supply and lawns that not drought resistant are putting a strain it.
Please start carrying grass seeds with Micro clover added or even Micro clover alone. Show Home Depot's concern for the environment by displaying the benefits of Micro clover.

We had the northern blend. Of the grass seed that was spread maybe 1/3 actually grew. Leaving our new lawn very patchy. We seeded again with this and about 1/4 actually grew. leaving us still with patches. I do like the clover and once established is quite drought tolerant. However, I would definitely recommend using some other grass seed at the same time. One with a better germination rate. Then you can have the clover and a full lawn.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MadderScientist Sun & Shade mix
I just put this stuff in a week ago (not much germination yet), so this isn't really a 'review'. I know I was annoyed that the composition of the mix is not available, so I will give it here. S&S is roughly 25% each bluegrass, creeping red fescue, and perennial rye, 10% hard fescue, and 3% microclover.

I had partial luck with this mixture for my lawn. It might have had something to do with the fact that I applied in in the spring rather than the fall, and that the existing grass was pretty thick in places. At any rate, it look longer than I expected to germinate, even though I watered regularly; after two weeks there were just a few tiny specks of green, and it wasn't for a couple of weeks more that I could see any clover coming up in a serious way. But then it really took off, mostly in places where the grass was thin. It's spread since then, but is still dense only in patches, like near my gardens (probably because I kept watering those after I stopped watering the lawn).
Before winter I'll probably overseed the areas where the clover didn't really take this year, and hope that in the spring it gets a good head start and can crowd out the dandelions and quack grass before they get established.
The clover definitely does stay green during dry periods, while the grass turns yellow and brown, which is great. I have high hopes that the plants will grow more evenly throughout my lawn next summer.
