Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 100
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CarolinaJay It works well, but the coverage is much less than stated.
The instructions on the bag say to spread the mix 1/8" thick. The front of the 6.25 lb bag says it will cover 125 square feet. These two figures are wildly at odds. I'll spare you the math, but the 12 X 10 X 3.5 inch bag contains enough to cover only 23 square feet to a depth of 1/8".
I have used this previously, and the grass did germinate well. The product performs as stated when spread thick enough to almost completely cover the dirt. I used three bags to cover an area of about 70 square feet. That makes it far more expensive than just grass seed, but the filler really does hold water and help germination

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marty12 Easy to use, works as intended
I had a large bare spot in front of my deck in my backyard. I raked the existing soil and added in some inexpensive top soil and raked that in. The I just applied the grass seed mixture on top of the dirt and watered once or twice a day for 5-10 minutes. It has now been a little over two weeks and as the picture show it is almost all filled in now.

I needed something fast and easy for an outdoor party and this accomplished all expectations. In 2 weeks all bare spots had green lush grass. I watered twice a day if nature didn't help.

Used this product for several areas we decided to return to lawn. 2 weeks, watering twice a day, the grass is lush and thick. Was skeptical since the bag contains over 70% filler.
However, it holds the moisture in and keeps the bird robbers to a minimum.
Can't recommend highly enough!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WestEndTruck Really Worked Well For Me
I read a lot of different reviews on both Pennington and Scott grass seed products and after reading several favorable reviews about Pennington's 1-Step Complete seeding I decided to buy two 6.25lb bags and test it out. I followed the directions on the bag and after a few days of good watering I started to see sprouting. Then it rained the next few days and now, 12 days later, I have a ton of grass where I put down the mixture. I went and purchased the 45lb bag two days ago to start doing the rest of my yard. I admit I was initially very skeptical but I am now a believer. If you follow the directions and keep it wet it will definitely grow.

Pretty fool-proof if you follow the directions. Spread it about 3/8" thickness above the soil and keep it moist until the grass is tall enough to mow, even if that means watering twice a day like I did. If you water too much the seeds may start to float and gather in one spot, so be careful to not over-water them. I used this to re-seed an area where I had apparently applied too much fertilizer which killed the existing grass. I dug up the soil beneath and gave it a little new top-soil, then applied this product to that area. It's been about a month since I've had grass sprout up, and the grass is tough and thicker than the surrounding grass.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terril We didn't get one blade of grass
We put down two bags of this product at different times, watered daily and generously, and didn't get a single blade of new grass from either application.
