Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StanB99 Grass seed or sawdust?
I purchased this product at the recommendation of an associate at HD. I followed the instructions for preparation and care. Well watered and cared for. Still after 13 days, absolutely no grass growing at all. I wasted my time and $50 bucks on this product. I will never buy this product again. Going to get regular grass seed but not this brand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shapecarguy I thought the bag said grass seed, not colored paper/sawdust
Purchased this based on the Home Depot associate's recommendation this was great grass seed. This big bag is mostly colored filler. There is very little actual grass seed. Then to make matters worse you still have to go back and rake it into the soil. Not only do you only get 10-15% of the actual grass seed you are expecting, you have to do all the preparation and follow-on work of normal grass seed. I know the green shredded paper looks pretty and is supposed to help hold moisture, but if the seed is raked into the soil and watered it is not needed. If I had bought a $50 bag of straight seed, prepared the soil the same way, raked the seed in the same way and watered it daily...then only had 50% of the straight seed actually grow...I would still have 4-5 times more grass than if 100% of this mixture grows for the same price. Bottom line is don't waste your money on this fluff filled bag and buy straight grass seed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CBRBMW60 Worst patch material I have ever used, a total waste of my money and time!
Bought this to fill in the areas in my front yard, watered it every day as directed, still no grass has come up and it stated on the bag that it takes 7 to 10 days before you will see any grass. It has been over three weeks and no grass, just a waste of my money. Threw away the bag that it came in after using the whole bag, so I have no proof that I bought this as I didn't save the receipt either. I might as well have thrown the money in the toilet and flush $54 dollars down the drain. Very disappointed in this product!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mcpld1 It does not work very well
Perhaps I let it sit in the bag too long (over a year), but most of the seeds failed to germinate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimB we avoided buying sod by using this product
We have tried and failed on our steep hillside until we used this product recommended by the associate.
For the first time, we have a nice crop of grass, almost all of the seed 'stuck' through several heavy rains.
The few bare spots have already filled in.

Did not work at all. No wonder they were on sale at half price. Go with Scott's Watersmart instead and save yourself doing it twice. Please add a zero star rating for products like this.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BamAbill Grass for the summer??
I purchased 20 pounds of this seed to help fillin some spots where I have problems growing grass. I put it down, watered it until rains came and only about 25% of the grass has come up. Has anyone else had issues like this?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JustBean77 Best Grass Seed Ever
I, without knowing anything about growing grass, spent a good hour reading all the different types of grass there is to grow grass. I came across Pennington 1 Step Complete several times, and decided to go with it; due to the fact that it contains everything needed: mulch, smart seed and fertilizer. I started with an area in our front lawn, under the kids swing, since the grass that was there disappeared from them playing/swinging. I didn't use anything but my hands to spread it out. I watered it as said: water until the mulch turns dark green. I watered twice daily; And, within days we saw grass growing. I couldn't believe it was working so well and so quickly. After a week the entire area was covered with short grass and about 10-14 days later (with continual watering) I had the entire area full of luscious beautiful grass. I then moved on to other areas that had no grass at all, and following the same steps as before, I now have thick grass everywhere. It's pretty incredible!! I couldn't be happier that I choose this product. I'm currently moving on to my backyard, which had grass but it all turned into an awesome mud pit due to our dogs. Can't blame them but I wish I would've started this sooner so I didn't have an entire yard to do. Thankfully its not too big. I'm doing it in small increments so the dogs don't ruin it all as its beginning to grow. I can't wait for us to have grass in our backyard again and, I know the dogs will be pretty happy about it too. I'd recommend this to any and everyone. I'll be buying more very soon and will always have some on hand, so I can fill in the spots that need grass in the future.
