Customer Questions & Answers

can you use it for top dressing the lawn ?

Asked by: allen
Yes, combine with grass seed and your results will be excellent. Key is to keep lawn watered twice a day till seeds sprout. Depends on weather.

What is the difference between this and basic "top soil"? Is the difference just the starter fertilizer?

Asked by: AFMLEHI
The difference is this one is actually mulch. No really, it is made of wood. Very little "soil" in it.

Turf Builder 1.5 cu. ft. Lawn Soil is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 187.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Full of actual garbage I bought 5 bags because where it was going I didn't want garbage soil, but that what I got. In every bag there was garbage, and I mean actual garbage. Piece of a soda can in one, a reeses wrapper in another, part of a plastic plant pot, and other unidentified plastic and glass purses throughout. I am so disgusted by the quality.

I read the reviews on this product before purchasing and thought many were over-dramatizing about the wood chips found in this and learned that they were not. In my opinion this was more like a bag of mulch with some dirt added. I am in the 4th week of growing my lawn out and I'm probably going to have to get out the leaf blower to get rid of all these excessively sized wood chips all over my lawn. I personally feel that had I used a cheaper basic lawn soil without all of the wood chips my lawn would be fully grown out by now.

Unfortunately, I must agree with the majority of the other customers who made the mistake of purchasing this product. Regretfully I bought 12 bags of the product as I had numerous areas to either fill or top fill due to a very difficult winter in the northeast. The product mixture was predominately twig fragments, along with other foreign material including a broken up white plastic spoon and other unidentifiable material. The amount of "soil" was a fraction of the total bag content which was also impregnated with the small twigs. Very dissatisfied, however due to the weight of the bags, I decided not to further damage my spine and back muscles with a hopeless situation. As a 25 + year Home Depot customer, I would assume that they would discontinue selling this Scotts product throughout their stores !!!

I went to HD to get some peat moss but they didn't have any, and I saw this product. The bag sure advertises a great "your lawn will be AWESOME" products. Not the case. I normally take negative reviews with a grain of salt, but the negative reviews of this product are spot on. This is NOT "Lawn Soil"... this is "Mulch with some junk in it". I could not believe how much wood was in each bag. I really should have stopped as soon as I opened the first bag, but I wanted to get my overseeding done so I used 4 bags for my back lawn. It looks like I mulched it... really. I will have to see if the seed actually grows, but overall I would absolutely NOT recommend this product. Scotts should be ashamed. And of course if my seed doesn't grow, I'm sure neither HD or Scotts will replace that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expensive, full of weed seeds Everytime I have purchased this product for seeding, I've had lots of weed problems. These are weeds non-native to my area that were never present in my yard prior. Do yourself a favor and buy a bale of peat moss, buy some local topsoil and compost and mix it up in your wheel barrow and use that instead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product has wonders for my lawn We had a harsh winter here in the Northeast. I had some bare spots in my front lawn. I removed the dead grass and cleaned up the area. I applied the Lawn soil to the effected areas. Within a few weeks the grass grew and my lawn doesn't have any more bare spots. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This product contained way too much bark and small stones which plays havoc on my Scott's push mower. Purchased 12 bags to fill in after thatching and overseeding with Scotts grass seed. Disappointed with results. I usually trust Scotts products but the LawnSoil does not live up to Scotts reputation.
