Customer Questions & Answers

can i use a spreader with this product and will it grow if it is just spread on top of the ground

Asked by: Action
I would not try to grow this or any grass seed by just throwing it on top of the ground. Rake the area, lightly break up the soil, and spread the seed. Then when it rains or when you lightly spray it with the hose the loose soil will become muddy and will cover the seed with a light layer of mud. I think that's the secret.

Can this be applied in the fall? September in Michigan .. Or should i wait until spring?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: BobR
I always have better luck seeding in the fall vs. the spring. In Kentucky, the best time is typically the last week of September through the first week of October.

Turf Builder 3 lb. Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1007.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mixed results Bought this as lawn patch/ overseed and have faithfully used Scotts products for 5+ years. First, it doesn't come close to growing a "full" lawn. Some patches are growing in well, others have no new grass, even though the entire area was treated and prepared the same way. If by "water smart" Scotts means for you to water a ridiculous amount, they got that right too

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 5 to 10 days... Ok it's been ten days. I prepped the yard (raked the bare spots). Watered every evening. Didn't over water or dehydrate it. All I see in my yard are little blue grains just sitting there. Temperatures have been in 60's to 70's. Planted before 3/31/16 as specified for SC. Scott's Sun and Shade Grass Seed sucks!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sun and Shade mix fail Ordered this product with high hopes to reseed my lawn and to fill in several bare spots. This product did not hold up it's end of the bargain. Raked the entire yard before and after seeding and have been giving proper amounts of water daily. Without question, over 80% of the seeds have not produced and it's been 3 weeks already, thousands of blue grass seeds are still visible. Absolute waste of my $100 for the 40# bag. Used an off brand seed right after and those seedlings are taking off. Off brand was half the price but twice the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Grass isn't greener It did not all.. Tried several times and followed instructions

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grass in a week so I'm happy I patched a few bare spots and reseeded a few larger areas. I used Scotts Lawnsoil which is a little pricey but does have the starter fertilizer built it and does seem to work a little better than regular topsoil. I was a little confused by the instructions for the topsoil so I looked up the seed instructions on the Scotts website and became even more confused. For one thing, the seed is not listed for use in Kentucky. It would also be nice if you could buy the seed in a smaller quantity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scott Turf Builder. Sun/Shade This product finally sprung up after 3 weeks but it's spotted. Application was simple however, I'm not impressed with the results after 3 weeks. Scott is my go to brand for the yard but this was a disappointment. It's worked in the past, not this time. Not sure why... I've been doing this for many years and have never encountered this in the past.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not germinate I am very disappointed in this product. Perhaps 2016 was a bad batch, you don't seem to have many good recent reviews. My situation offers a comparison with no-name brand, un-coated grass seeds under the same growing conditions. I had a 7-foot apron around a new patio that needed seeding. The patio installer had thrown down some poor quality top soil, aforementioned plain grass seed and straw over it all in August. I diligently kept the soil moist and within 3 days had grass. I still had some patches (about 10%) that were bare, so bought this product and premium top soil (Scott's brand) to seed them. As before, I kept the soil moist. However 8 days later and there are only a few spots with 5 or less thin blades of grass coming through. Because of my experience I am forming the opinion that though the blue coating makes it easy for one to see the grass seed as it is applied, it makes it more difficult for them to germinate. I will not be buying this product again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Grass seeds worked. I used Scotts Turf Builder 1.5 cu. ft. Lawn Soil and kept the ground wet... The Grass seeds worked. I used Scotts Turf Builder 1.5 cu. ft. Lawn Soil and kept the ground wet for atleast 2 weeks else it will not work. I think use of Lawn soil (not necessarily Scott's, but which ever -- do your research) is essential, other wise you are taking a chance for the seeds to sow..
