Its more about where they live than what they would like, typically once we know where a person lives we can advise accordingly, the map at www.buygrotrax.com takes the guesswork out of things, Sandy if you go on and start a fake order you will see what I mean…..very easy.

Do you need to roll out on just dirt or can it go over existing grass?

I had no problem putting it over grass - the grass just pushes through when it's wet

Is this good for sun and shade for zone 5

I live in central California and install this in June where daily temperature is 100 degree Fahrenheit and above. Make sure water a lot to prevent drying. It’s liking the sun but it seems little happy under the tree shade too.

Would this work on a 15 degree slope where previous seed I’ve put down has washed away after a rain, or will the same happen with this?

Asked by Mike May 7, 2020

It only took three weeks for the grass to start growing. Wish I knew about this 5 years ago. I have a dog and my yard had patches everywhere.

Well, like most folks I was a little skeptical about this product. It says will grow on concrete. I am not sure about the concrete but where we laid the Grotrax, it is perfectly green grass in December. We only laid a couple of areas and now we wished had done the entire yard. Check out the photos. As you can see, the grass around Grotrax area appears lifeless.

Quick growing Grotrax is the solution to large bare spots.
We have a large back yard with quite a few trees and have had 3 problem spots to grow grass: behind the garage, back side of house along some hostas (see picture) and the end of the house where I have a drive through gate to fenced in back yard. Early August 2020 I worked the soil about 4 inches deep and added some top soil from our local compost site. I rolled out the Grotrax 100 square big roll and watered it twice a day. It was green within a week and going into the fall there may be some spots where the squirrels dug it up but that will be a spring project. Very happy so far with results.

This is NOT to GOOD to be TRUE
I am amazed by this product. I did do a test section in my backyard that is nothing but dirt and is constantly flooding. Now, i tilled the area before laying down the gotrax and i made sure to water it once in the am and once in the pm. I used the shower spray on my nozzle. For the first time in 20 years i have grass in jy backyard and its actualky pretty green grass. I made sure it is not walked on bc the rooting process takes time and i use my weedwacker to trim the tops off the grass so it doesnt get so high. Now since i have mud in my backyard and there has been a lot if rain i do take my leaf blower, on a low setting, to unstick the grass stuck in some of the mud. Just fyi I put down the go trax right at the beginjing of August 2020 in VA and have had no issues even with the crazy hot weather. So happy i took a chance on this.

So excited! We tried grass seed pellets, and they just washed away down our graded back yard. These sheets are the answer! I cut pieces to fill in along our new patio, watered for a week, and we have grass! It is easy to lay down and cut to fit any areas you have. Once you water it, it "sticks" to the soil, and can't be blown or washed away. I highly recommend this product.

Easy to install, however, after 10 days, I had to go buy weed killer. I'm still trying to kill the weeds. Not as clean as they say. I've been spreading weed killer on it for two days and this is how it looks. I'd thought it would be ease of use, but turns out, not so much for me. Maybe I got a bad batch? Who knows?

grass finally grew!
I had been trying to grow grass on a sloped, shady area of my yard for 6 years. I finally tried a seed mat - GROTRAX - and it worked! grass came in in 2 weeks with proper tilling/lime in advance, and plenty of water. the only drawback is that squirrels and birds took a few chunks out of the mat. all in all, I highly recommend it!

This grass is growing so good! The first day, we watered it extra just to make sure the dirt underneath stayed moist. This is what we got in 1 WEEK you guys!

It works well if you do it right
We live in a desert climate and managed to kill our whole backyard. We started with complete dirt and within a few weeks we have a healthy lawn. Make sure you: 1. Take the ground first to loosen soil 2. Water it FOUR times per day for 5 minutes each. 3. If windy, put a few small stakes on it. If you have a slope, water it more as water will runoff and it has to stay wet.

Pleasantly surprised!
We have tried several kinds of grass seed rolls over the past couple of years in our backyard with limited success. We had a pretty big patch of grass where we had burned some branches and the grass had completely died off (didn't really matter because our grass is nothing special - we have dogs and lots of creeping charlie). This grass seed was well cared-for for the first couple of weeks, but that's all it needed to come in strong and thick. I will definitely be purchasing more as we continue to work on improving our grass in our yard.
