Applied and watered exactly as instructed; temps in recommended range. Grass grew in about 1/3 of the areas I used it (after about 4 weeks, not 2 as advertised); nothing at all in the other areas. However, now at least I have a bunch of green-colored weeds in the empty patches because of the special care in watering. I'm sure Scott's will sell me some sort of product for that now.

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.

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.

I decided to try this product on a few bare spots in the backyard. I followed the instructions and 10 days later the product is still on the spots and nothing has sprouted.

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 Elliek Total waste of time
I purchased two bags to seed a relatively large area of my lawn. I have watered it religiously. It has been two weeks and not one little sprout. Meanwhile in the small section where I ran out of this product and just through seed down I have a nice thick lawn growing. I threw a bunch of seed on top of it and I'm going to see if it grows now. I feel like they have major quality issues this year.
Do yourself a favor and don't buy this product.
