Answer: 
Yes, seed bed preparation, and consistent watering are two critical components of getting any seed to germinate. We suggest a minimum 1/4"-1/2" of loose soil and frequent shallow waterings of the new seedbed. The key is not to allow the soil that the seed is in to dry out.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Destroyed my lawn Last year we had underground sprinklers installed at my house in Connecticut. The sprinkler company used Scotts Contractor Mix to reseed all dug up areas and the rep raved about how it was a great product and I was already a fan of Scotts fertilizer products. Initially I was very happy with how quickly the seeds sprouted and filled in the bare areas. I also had a few other bare areas due to my dogs, so I purchased another bag of it a couple weeks later and reseeded those areas as well. All was great for a few months. Then I noticed that what seemed like a lot of crab grass took over those areas. I was very unhappy, since the rest of my lawn was great thin-bladed Kentucky Bluegrass, and this crab grass really stood out as yellow-green patches that grew twice as fast as the surrounding Bluegrass. So, in the fall I spent more money and killed all the crab grass with Round-Up. A few days later, I reseeded with Contractor Mix again (like an idiot) hoping for better results. New grass grew but stayed yellow-green during the winter and could still be seen against the rest of the Bluegrass. I figured it was just due to it being new grass. Well, now spring is here and I have come to the realization that what I thought was crab grass was not and that this seed is just full of Tall Fescue (which looks just like crab grass). It may be hardy, but it has and continues to destroy my lawn. It has thick clumpy blades of grass that do not cut well as they spring back up after mowing, grow way too quickly necessitating mowing more that 1x/week which is just not feasible, and just looks horrible! I'm going to have to spend more money this fall killing all this grass for a second time and replanting new Bluegrass. If you have a huge area like a farm meadow or something that needs to be seeded for erosion prevention or something and you don't really care what the grass looks like, I guess this mix would work for you. But if you have a nice lawn with Bluegrass, STAY AWAY! They don't say anything on the bag about this being grass seed that will take over your lawn with Tall Fescue (which should really be labeled a weed). April 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works great Live next to alley , needed to extend the grass out couple ft, Put couple inches of topsoil on top of the gravel that was there and applied seeds , Watered it once every evening and kept ground broken up so to not make a crust on the dirt Within two wks had grass growing outstanding August 20, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not grow I followed all the instructions for preparing my yard for this seed and after applying and watering every day for almost 3 weeks, not one seed has germinated. May 19, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by did not meet up to scotts quality I don't recommend this product for my area 33563 florida only bout 10 percent of this grass seed came up I water it every day. May 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Only 80% germinated Coverage is good, however seems only 80% germinated. Purchased last fall to reseed, and never did it. This fall did entire front lawn and even a hatch pattern with a drop spreader for more uniform coverage. 3 weeks after seeding grass looks healthy, but still alot of seed I can see on the lawn that didn't germinate. Looks like I'll have to seed again in the spring more than I anticipated. Couldn't find an expiration date on the seed bag, but I'm guessing that's the reason for the failed seed. No weeds yet, which was the goal of the higher quality seed purchase October 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Took a while to establish, but eventually grew very thick and nice. I bought this contractor bag of seed because it contains a varied mix of seed species. I raked it gently into a large section of my yard that I had covered with fresh topsoil. About two weeks later there were patches of sprouts poking out of the soil. The grass grew patchy for a few weeks (I was a little disappointed at first), but within about two months, I almost couldn't see any bare dirt patches anymore. Now, about 4 months later, the grass is very thick and green. I can tell there are several species of grass in there, which I believe makes for a very healthy lawn. This section of my yard now looks significantly better than the rest of my yard June 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great and grows fast. Last spring my kids tore up our lawn riding their riding toys all over. Our whole lawn was almost bare. We have alot of trees in our yard as well so it is sun/shade throughout the day. I wanted to try to grow blue grass in back, it grows but slowly with our shady yard. I needed some grass to grow quickly to fill all the empty spots and have a good foundation. This mix worked wonderfully grass was growing in just a few days and filled our entire lawn and I like the mix too its a good quality grass mix with fescue, rye grass, and blue grass. June 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Truff Builder low germination rate I had a pretty ugly yard after the winter rains so decided to start over. Added a thin layer of top soil. Seeded with contractos mix. Checked and there are about 15 seeds per square inch. Hand watered the first few days, several time per day. Checked and the soil and seeds look good so switched to the auto system 3 times ter day for a few minutes. Wait and after 10 days started to se some grass growing but only about 3 per inch. Checked and the seeds are there just not growing. At 15 days still very thin grass. Over seeded the lawn again at the same rate as the first time. New seeds about 10 per inch. 2 weks later and about 3 seeds growning. Over seeded again and now waiting. I purchased the 20 pound bag to seed 1000sq ft but I've used most of it already. The grass that is growing looks great. May 24, 2014
