It does not need a spreader if it is a small area. I distributed mine by hand.

Answer: 
My answer is no if "small" is truly small. That said, a small hand held spreader might be best. I've taken handfuls of seed for small areas and tossed it up gently in the air and let it fall to the ground to avoid clumping seed in one spot.

Answer: 
It is recommended to use a spreader to apply grass seed, this helps to ensure even coverage. A hand held spreader works well for small areas. How much you use will depend on the square footage of the area you are covering. A 7 lb bag will cover 1,400 square feet of new lawn or if overseeding an existing lawn it will cover 2,800 square feet.

Can I use this plus weed and feed?

June 12, 2014
We just bought a house and the yard is mostly grass (very weeded) but around the edge of the house and random spots in the lawn there are bare spots. Plus some spots we're planning to level and pull out bushes. Can I use this on the bare spots and the weed and feed on the regular grass to get rid of the weeds? Or should I just apply this everywhere? Or what would be the ideal remedy? Thx

Answer: 
No you can't because the weed and feed will cause your seeds not to germinate (need to wait 4-6 weeks after your weed killer product). Unless you have a highly designed chemical compound that can differentiate grass seed from weed seed :)

Answer: 
You can use the Turf Builder Sun and Shade Mix seed on any of the bare areas. Do not apply a weed control to the new seed until the new grass has been mowed at least 4 times. If applying Turf Builder Weed & Feed, you cannot reseed for at least 4 weeks after the application.

Answer: 
While Birds do eat seed, our WaterSmart PLUS Grass Seed is not a preferred food item for birds and if they do eat it they will only eat a very small percentage of what was planted, leaving plenty to germinate and establish. While it is possible to cover the seed with a thin layer of soil or straw, we do not recommend covering the seeds with hay, plastic, wood mulch, or grass clippings.

Scotts Turf Builder Sun & Shade Mix is a cool season grass mix of Kentucky Blue, Rye and Fescue varieties. Although it will grow in zone 8 it may not thrive. Warm season grass types may be better suited for the area.

Turf Builder 7 lb. Sun and Shade Mix Grass Seed is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 997.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The proof is in the pics The proof is in the pictures. First pic is on Day 0, after prep and application. Second pic is at 2 weeks. Third pic is after 4 weeks. Scotts works perfectly, but you need to put in the time and prep correctly. There is no miracle seed that allows you to just "throw down seed" and water. This is the third time I've planted a lawn (or major portions of one) and the trick is in the prep. 1. Loosen the soil where you will be applying the seed. Make sure soil is loose at least 2" deep... not just the very top. 2. OVERSEED. Put down so much seed you do not see dirt. This is the one step I deviate from the "bag instructions". I believe more seed is better. 3. Work seed into dirt. This step is not included in the bag, but I believe it makes a huge difference. Working the seeds into the dirt provides cover and protection from the elements (sun, water, etc.). Don't work in too deep. Just a gentle mix. Yes, there will be seeds on the top of the dirt that aren't fully worked-in. It's ok. 4. WATER!!! For the lawn in this picture, I watered twice a day... once before work (say 500A) and once when I returned home (say 430P). I watered for about 15-20mins each time. Just until it was damp. The lawn pictured required this much water, since it is in direct sunlight all day and the top of the soil was dry by the time I returned home from work.

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 5 out of 5 by from Grass is growing In less than 7 days, blades of grass were growing in our empty patches. We followed the directions on the bag and used some top soil to cover very lightly. We made sure that the areas were watered lightly for the first few days, and watched the rain pattern as well. I have grass growing and filling in nicely. We timed the planting so the outdoor temperatures were less than 70 degrees, as grass grows faster in cooler weather. Great product. Very satisfied.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Try another product I buy a bag of seed every year to fill in the spots for summer. Bought 2 bags and applied according to the instructions. Maintained per instructions and past experience. Not one spot sprouted and filled in. Very disappointed in the results not to mention the cost of the water. Have not had this problem in the past with other products.

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 1 out of 5 by from Scotts grass seed This is the second time i used this seed and having poor results again. The germination time is very slow,they claim 5-10 days, i'm seeing a minumim of 14 days and very slow growth. This time i bought their lawn soil and saw very little improvment. I'm going to e-mail scotts and complain.
