Bare spots most likely will get filled in over time, naturally. (Providing the lawn has regular care.) You may speed up the growth by getting more seed and seed bare spots w/ regular water treatment to enhance grass growth (or special grass patch kits). Gook luck, Cheers, Will

Hello. Have never heard or seen the term 'seed contact percentages', nor have been able to quickly find same in Wikipedia. All I can say is that the product works well in establishing and/or maintaining a good lawn. I would assume that using a 'direct (drop) spreader' vs a 'broadcast spreader' could alter the contact characteristics of the seed? (I'll keep looking for an answer!) Cheers, Will

How long does it take to grow? Does it work well in the Houston Texas area?

Asked by Brent April 23, 2021

Answer

Scotts Turf Builder Rapid Grass Tall Fescue seedlings will begin to emerge in 6-14 days under ideal conditions of consistently above 60 degree temperatures.This is not when all of the seed will germinate just when the grass will first start coming up. This should be used to seed or overseed tall fescue lawns only.

Is this grass seed safe? I put it down by hand and am concerened that is has a blue coating on it .. I also have dogs that will be walking on it

The coating isn't going to harm you or your dogs. I do wear gloves when I sow this seed though, just to keep my hands clean

seed weed
I put the grass seed down about 10 days ago. I’m getting very little growth of grass, but i’m seeing lots if weeds. It appears as if the seed or possibly the Scotts ground soil was contaminated with weeds.
by Carol
Best grass seed mix I've tried
Scotts Tall Fescue mix gave me the best results after trying several different types of grass seed. I seeded in the spring, overseeded and fed Scotts Weed & Feed fertilizer in the fall and following spring. The end result was a lush, deep green lawn where there used to be dirt and weeds. Hardy in both direct sun and shade.

Followed all instructions and still have bare spots
On September 29, 2020 we purchased two 20 pound bags of Scott's Turf-builder Tall Fescue seed. We prepped our lawn according to the instructions, laid the seed down according to the instructions and watered daily according to the instructions. Most of the seed never germinated and we still have bare spots all over our lawn. One of the reasons we purchased Scotts is because of the "no quibble" money back guarantee printed on the bag. We thought for sure the seed would work if we followed the instructions but it did not. Would not recommend this product to anyone!

Lush and thick grass in 30 days
During quarantine I decided to give some TLC to the back yard to stay busy. This worked great, however there are a few steps I took that I think are crucial to having success with it. 1) You MUST buy the Scotts Top Soil to go with the seed. Everywhere I applied the soil the grass grew amazingly in 30 days. I’m talking areas that before were completely dirt to nothing but grass. Other areas honestly didn’t take the seed too well and I’ll have to reapply with the soil. 2) Don’t be afraid to load up areas with seed. As long as its properly soiled, it’ll take all of it for better results. 3) Give it time. You won’t see anything growing for about 2 weeks but it’s working, trust me. I gave my yard 30 days and am extremely happy with the results. 4) Water at least every other day. 5) Stay off the seed! I have dogs and completely closed off my area of the yard I had seeded from them for the full 30 days. The only time it should have anyone walking on it is to water. The only reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is because my experience is you have to buy the soil for the seed to work properly. However I promise if you follow these steps you’ll be just as happy as I am!

Tall Fescue Grass
I had brought your Bermuda Grass seeds and did not have a problem. I just decided to take it up because of it's aggressive growing. I decided I wanted Tall Fescue Grass so after taking up the Bermuda grass I put down The Fescue Grass I had know problem with the seeds growing . But the grass is thin I don't like the thin blades of grasss and when walked on it lays flat.

We are sorry that you did not get the results you expected from Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Tall Fescue Mix. When grass is young it is immature and will have a different color and texture than established grass. Regular mowing and fertilizing will help it mature to its proper color and texture. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please contact us to see what can be done.

Weed seed mixed in with the Tall Fescue Mix. I used the Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Tall Fescus mix as the primary seed for my yard reseeding last month. The seed grows well, but now there is unwanted weeds in my yard that were not there before. This has occurred in my front and back yards. I believe there is a mix of weed seed in the tall fescue mix because the weeds that are now present are not a species of weed that was present in my yard prior to using the Tall Fescue Mix.
