Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tonybingo Too many gravels!!!
Don't think gravels are part of soil. Took the chances even after reading other reviews. After couple of thunderstorms can only see small gravels, lots of them. It does help grass seeds take root and grow but totally unhappy with the small gravels. Used 28 bags and returned the last 4. Now I will need to spend a lot of time picking those small gravels, lots of them. Will not touch again, ever!

Bought on impulse while in the store so did not check the online reviews. What a mistake! Filled with twigs, stones, plastic products and zip ties. The soil I emptied the bags on was better than the Scotts soil. After spending days getting my soil prepped to seed I am now faced with sorting through this new mess. Viewed the video on Scott's website and they showed them emptying the bags right on top of the homeowners existing dirt and I did the same. HUGE mistake!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer This can hardly be called "soil."
I am really disappointed in this product -- followed the directions on the bag, and after the first rain (which was not a downpour), all that was left was a bunch of wood chips and pieces of ground-up plastic and metallic foil. My grass seed was exposed and the birds had a heyday. I am shocked that Scott's would put their name on this. It isn't cheap to buy, but they sure have made it "cheap" with all the non-organic filler, and maybe a moment of silence for whatever "soil" was mixed in to make it look good. What a complete waste of time and money. I will think twice before buying another Scott's product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TK Extremely Disappointed. Scotts should be embarrassed
I was very disappointed in the 2 bags of this 'Lawn Soil?' from Scotts. I guess I expected better for the price and from Scotts. I decided to buy/try it, in lieu of the basic cheap top soil for less than 1/4 of the cost. As another stated it was full of rocks, twigs, sticks, some plastic debris. I wasted half an hour of my time sifting all the debris out of this soil before spreading it out. Hopefully the quality of the actual soil is decent and my grass grows in ok. I have since returned to HD for 10 bags of the least expensive top soil and was amazed to find it had less junk and debris in it than the much more expensive Scotts Lawn Soil. I would expect this to be reversed. Needless to say I will never spend the extra money on the Scotts product again. I will buy cheap, mix in a little of my own new seed fertilizer and save a lot of money and time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Justin Good product
I bought 6 bags of this to seed my back yard. I was hesitant after reading some reviews here. I must say i was glad i went ahead and bought them. For 7 bucks per bag it is well worth it. I didn't see any plastic or any other stuff in the soil as others have stated. It was a bit damp and had clumps that needed broken up, but not a big deal. I seeded my lawn using this soil and i had grass growing up in less than a week. So i am going to assume those who say grass doesn't grow in this soil doesn't know how to seed a lawn or didn't properly maintain it in the early germination stages. Definitely pick this up if you need to plant some grass. It's more than worth the money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EJ Various debris in Lawn Soil
I used Scott's Lawn Soil when re-seeding my lawn this spring after a big part of my lawn died. I bought 18 bags of the lawn soil and noticed that every single bag had some type of debris in it. There were things that I would expect like unbroken down twigs/wood and rocks, but every bag also had glass, plastic, and styrofoam. It was my first time using Scott's Lawn Soil and I don't think I'd use it again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Burd1 waste of time and money
This is the second product by scotts to disappoint me this year. Plain top soil would have been a better investment. This soil did not help the scotts grass seeds that I spread grow. I still have bare spots. Bottom line, I will not be purchasing any product by Scotts in the future.
