Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FlowerGirl very easy to grow
I planted this to cover a bare patch left by a forsythia bush. I used a bow rake to loosen and even out the soil. I put this down and crumbled it up by hand so that the entire patch was covered by a thin layer, then I soaked it with water. I used the rake to mix it up and wet it down again so the dry under parts were wet as well. Then I just watered it whenever I remembered. A few weeks later, little baby grass shoots started appearing. And now, a few months later, it's the best looking grass patch in my yard. I dont think the bag covered nearly as much as it claimed, but I also probably went overboard with my application. I would never use this for large scale planting, but to repair a patch, it's great.

Like many suggest, almost 4 weeks down watered twice a day with sprinklers. Not one blade. Not one seed found in the mix.

I was attempting to fill in 15-20 bare spots on my lawn and used this product to do so. I put it down over two weeks ago and watered it twice per day. Unfortunately, nothing has happened. Don't waste your time, money, or water on this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LC Extremely disappointing
2 bags of this product have been an eyesore on my law for almost three weeks and I cannot spot a single blade of grass. Not recommend.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BeckyMac Terrible useless product -- Don't buy!!
Two bags of this product were installed exactly as directed. All areas were watered well and kept moist. After 2 weeks still NO GRASS -- not a single sign of any growth! This product is a waste of cost and a huge waste of time applying to all of the bare spots in my lawn with no grass growing. Now my lawn looks even worse then before I applied this product as there are tons of ugly spots of gray mulch everywhere! I'm not sure what to do now to cure the problem. If I remove it all, that will take a lot of time and be very messy. Should I just spend even more time and money and put regular seed and mulch over the top?? I am extremely dissatisfied!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DisappointedInChicago First bag worked great, second bag was a total flop; must've had production issues this year
Used up the first bag I bought while applying to one big bare patch, so bought a second bag from a different production lot to finish covering the patch. The seed from the first bag germinated great and has grown nicely, the seed from the second bag barely germinated. When I say that it barely germinated, I mean that in most of the area, it didn't germinate at all while in one smaller area it germinated, but so sparsely that it might only be a handful of blades per square inch, if even that. Side by side comparison is striking, wish I could upload pictures of it. I'm guessing there must've been a production issue this year. Very disappointing after all the time I spent applying & watering & now I've missed the spring window to reapply, so it'll have to sit bare all summer until I can redo in the fall.

Used this product in multiple areas of the lawn. Put seed down prior in some areas. Areas where I put just this product down has down absolutely nothing growing. And areas where i put seed down prior is growing great. Wish i read reviews before using. Would not of bought product. Now i need to do all the areas over again.
