If you are overseeding an existing lawn, it will cover 1,750 square feet. If you are seeding a new area, you will get 875 square feet of coverage from a seven pound bag.

Answer: 
Hi Mistyvonda, one 7 pound bag will cover 1750 square feet. That is like having an area 40 feet long by 43 feet wide. That equals 1720 square feet. Hope that answered your question.

Answer: 
This is a combination of two cool season grass types that will not perform very well in your area. You may want to determine if Bermuda, Bahia, or Centipede grass types will grow in your area. When seeding we generally suggest killing and removing any weeds prior to planting grass seed.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT BUY I reviewed this once but Home Depot never posted it. I purchased two of these bags, plus one of the smaller bags so I could overseed and patch bare spots in the front yard and back yard. I first power raked the yards and removed all of the thatch and prepared the soil as instructed. I then put down the seed using a Scott's drop spreader. I watered twice daily. The temperature has been in the low 80's every day since planting and in the mid 50's at night. It has been almost 2 weeks and not one seed germinated. I should have known not to buy Scotts, but I was in a hurry, and I did not want to drive 10 miles to the garden store. Two years ago I bought two bags of the "guaranteed to grow" Scotts bare spot repair seed which comes with the seed mixed in soil and fertilizer, I got ZERO results from that seed too. To show you how bad Scott's seed is, this summer the gas company dug up a portion of my front yard. After the line was replaced the contractor came in with bulk seed and laid down seed. The temperatures were in the upper 90's and even over 100 degrees a couple of days. The grass came in over 80% of the area. I was trying to patch that area with the Scotts' seed and got zero results. I will NEVER buy a Scott's Lawn product again. I hope Home Depot posts this review October 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Benefit in Question This is the third season I've used this product. It is mostly "tall fescue" which is considered by the professionals to be the most heat tolerant grass for the Northeast. With that much I am satisfied. What did finally come up survived the hottest summer months. But again this season (early September) I have found the seed to sprout slowly and need just as much watering during and after planting as any other germinating seed. Could I be doing something wrong? Sure, but I haven't figured out what it is. After this season's planting once again the sparse amount coming up led me to over-seed the area with regular "tall fescue." I'm not convinced the additives, including the price tag, warrant the purchase. September 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always working I live near Boston and have been using this product for several years. I read some bad reviews about it, but it never fails me. Every year after the hot summer passes, when the daily temp is between 50-70, I would patch my lawn with it. Just loosen the soil, spread the seeds, cover them with a thin layer of composite soil, water light in the morning or afternoon (or both if it is really warm and dry). Then after 7-8 days, they always germinate. I even used a bag of seeds (sealed) stored in my tool room over a year and they were still fine. Overall, I think the watering is the key. If the day temp is above 80, then you have to water more frequently to keep the soil moist; and a thin layer of composite soil would help a lot to retain the moisture. Also, if the night temp keeps dropping below 45, then it may take longer time to see the germination. Personally I would prefer to seed as early as possible in the fall, then I can mow the new grass 2-3 times before the winter starts, so that it will be fully established and look really nice in the coming year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong performing grass blend results in neighborhood envy... ;-P If you have FULL SUN and want a green lawn year round, this is the blend. Its super bright green in the spring with small blades of grass mixed with thicker blades, then later in the summer when it is hot and dry the small blade grass goes dormant and the thick grass takes over. For me in Central Ohio I notice a change in early July. It is August now and I have some underlying brown grass but the majority of the lawn is deep green. My neighbors think I water all the time but I am really just watering the flower beds. Cut it higher later in the summer... I planted this lawn 8 years ago and it's stronger than ever. Oh and once you plant it give it a solid year before you give up as it will take a while to get to 100%. August 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Follow up - August Picture Just cut the grass last night... It's been 90+ for 2 weeks here and the grass is going strong. I have not watered it for 6 weeks. There are brown spots but it is predominately green. August 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 14 days later and nothing Worst Scotts product I have ever used. Prepared the soil for a new lawn per Scotts instructions and 14 days later, I have nothing. May 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very Poor Results with this seed mix I purchased a 20lb bag of this seed mix in late April and followed the instructions to a "T" inclusive of watering etc. It is now August and despite "babying" the areas I seeded and over seeded I got very little good grass growing. And now because of the time of year, it just about all crabgrass of varying types! I finally gave up on the watering since I was primarily watering crabgrass! I would not spend the money for this product and I am going to ask for my money back via the "No-Quibble Guarantee". Hopefully the refund process works better than the the product itself! August 23, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by One of my worst purchases #1. I followed the product directions very carefully. #2. This is not the first grass seed that I have ever planted. #3. Most all of my other seed usages have been reasonably successful and at least satisfactory. #4. I should have been smart enough to keep the bag and I would have made an attempt to get my money back on this product that is how bad it was. signed - Very Displeased October 20, 2015
