Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product!! Quick Grass I bought this grass seed to reseed half of my yard that has been in rough shape. I followed the directions on the back of the bag and little seedlings began to emerge just shy of two weeks. I waited about 2.5-3 more weeks before applying the recommended Scott's seedling fertilizer and now my grass is coming in even stronger! Its been a little over a month now since I first laid the seed and each seedling now has 3-4 shoots coming out of it. The grass is making great progress and I know will be nice and thick come summer time in a few months. Like I said, just follow the directions and stick to the timeline (in regards to feeding and watering) and you will have quality grass in no time! I think its great for reseeding and spot filling. I used the Scott's rotary spreader (used the recommended settings) to distribute both the seed and then the fertilizer. April 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product. I put down more grass seed than recommended then put a light coating of scotts turf builder top soil. With proper watering of once a day grass started to show up in 7 days. If you are covering a bare spot I think a generous amount of grass seed should be put down not whats recommended on the bag. Greater chance of a thicker amount of grass to come up. June 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It Really Works When we moved into our house we found that the previous owners had not done much with the yard. We had a chemical put on our lawn, but it didn't seem to get much better. Part of the problem is that the north and east sides of the house get a lot of shade and the west and south sides get a lot of sun. In addition, our house is at the bottom of a hill and any time there is rain, the rain runs down our side yard on the north side and washes away what we have put down. Once we got Scotts' Lawn Service, they applied their Turf Builder along with aerating the soil. The yard really improved and now we have grass all over our side yard. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love scotts products I killed my entire lawn this fall cuz I had contamination with crabgrass and other weeds. I power seeded using this great product . It's amazing, the grass looks lush, thick and green. Thanks again scotts for such great products October 16, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by water absorbent is a negative if you read the back of the package it discloses grass mix by % and germination % rate. It turns out only 50% of the mixture ( weight of the bag) is actually seed... the other 50% if the coating around the seeds. In reality you are buying 10 LBS of seed and 10 LBS of seed coating that absorbs the water for the seed. Not all grass seed comes with this coating. If you buy uncoated seeds instead, and water the seed or spread the seed before several days of rainy weather you get more for your money. April 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great with my sandy soil I like really close to a lake and my soil is very sandy, mostly sand actually. I was concerned about getting grass to grow but this product, along with a lot of watering, worked great! September 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works good We have a fully shaded yard that we have to overseed w/ fescue at least 1-2x per year. This stuff works just as good as the stuff from the local seed store that costs more $$. Sprouts usually start coming up within a 4-5 days and it says alive in the Oklahoma heat as long as you give it enough to drink September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth it Put this stuff out last fall. It's been almost a year so i feel i can give fair assessment. It has really held up well. 3kids, always in the yard, birthday parties, etc. I'm very pleased. Grass grows with very rich, green color. Like i said, worth it. September 5, 2014
