Spots can be a nuisance when tending to your lawn. We believe Scotts Patchmaster Tall Fescue Mix can assist you in repairing your bare spots. Some tips to remember when applying this product are, that you should choose an area in full or partial sun. Remove debris such as rocks or roots. Prepare the soil. Loosen the soil to a depth of 2 - 4 inches. A spade or garden rake can assist you well in doing this. Soil particles from pea to marble size are ideal for planting grass seed. Next spread the seed 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick on top of the soil you loosened. Do not apply more than 1/2 inch of Patchmaster, also do not mix into the soil or cover the Patchmaster with soil. Lastly water thoroughly using a light spray until the mulch is saturated. Keep the top 1/2 inch moist by watering twice each day for 2 weeks after planting, until seed germination is seen. Continue to water for at least 2 weeks to help the seedlings become established. Once established, water as needed.

Hi Chelle.
Thank you for your question.
The most common grass repair kit is for Fescue. There are a number of different seed repair combinations. Scotts has a good one as well as Pennington.

Hi Chelle.

If you have a sandy or clay soil, it would be a good idea to mix in some good top soil. If the area is dry, water it before applying any seed repair material.
Once the area has been prepared you can simply sprinkle the seed repair mix over the bare spots and just water it in.
This area will have to be kept damp for the next 7-10 days while the grass is germinating. After that, you may have to water a few times a week to keep the grass damp, unless Mother Nature helps you out with some rain.
It is as simple as that. The seed repair kit comes complete the seed, some fertilizer and a growing medium. It will be up to you to keep the newly seeded area damp.
It will take several weeks for the grass to fill in your bare areas, but the extra effort will be worthwhile.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 73 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Extremely disappointed I used the starter fertilizer and landscapers mix, some of the seed came up (not even 50%). The new grass turned yellow at root and died after approx 2 wks. I have a lot of time and money in my lawn. I have always used Scott's and never had a problem until this year. Now we are going into 90 degree weather and it's not the ideal time to plant new seed but I have no choice. June 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Posted several days ago still not here Product is horrible this year. I've always used Scott's and never had these problems. Guess I will post on Google. June 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by overdose I just applied Calloway fertilizer(phophorous free 21-0-0) in March 12. Until now March 22 my Bermuda grass still does not look good. I wonder if I can aplly this Scott product Starter Fertilizer on my existing grass.? It says on the bag "for new grass". I would appreciate if someone out there let me know if it is ok to apply STARTER FERTILIZER? Thank you March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by this product has great features sorry I have used scotts grass seed many times but this time I had a large area and no time to wait for it to grow so I had to buy sod but after installing it I used scotts starter fertilizer for new grass.I had a few leftover pieces and I put them on my shrub bed which is filled with goose egg rocks, so I laid the sod right over the rocks and fed it starter fertz. low and behold I had to cut the grass 3x with my trimmer and its still looking great in the winter.great great product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The only way to go when you want new seeds to grow This was the secret to growing a lush lawn under a thickly-leaved maple. You still need patients and consistent watering but my neighbors laughed when I tore out the mulch and planted a lawn. That was 8 years ago and, with regular care it is still going strong with no reseeding. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] January 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PRODUCT SAVED OUR NEW SOD We are first time home owners with lawn irrigation and after our initial sod was laid we started having issues with the lawn dying. Not from overwatering, just bad sod. We decided to try Scotts for the first time and at first felt like the product wasn't working and second guessed our decision. Fortunately I changed the watering to evening and withing a week our yard was looking fantastic. Another week later it was even better. Very very happy with this product. Our lawn is the greenest green. Just used the Wintermix,and hoping for similar results. October 14, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by product burnt my grass up planted new seed looking to use when new sprouts were seen .. applied scotts starter fertilizer and my whole new seedlings were turned brown in couple days .. burned up after research most landscape places said the starters first number way to high for my little seedlings.. replanted again used a 1-2-1 starter and bam nice yard would not reccommend October 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Stuff! We decided to plant seed in our yard instead of sod. Not being too aware of how to go about this, (not aware of how horrible the soil is here) I tilled up the soil last year and put in the seed, after about half a year, it grew up very slowly very short length not doing much... I was getting very frustrated, about ready to give up and just get sod. I went to the store and found this starter food and thought I'd give it one last try.. All I have to say is WOW! My grass started getting length and filling in and it looks awesome! I am so glad I decided to try it and save a lot of money on not buying sod! Thank You Scotts!!! May 25, 2015
