We do not recommend using a coated seed like the Turf Builder Sun & Shade Mix for dormant seeding. The freezing and thawing of the coating will damage the seed. This is a perennial mix of grasses. If you would like additional tips on seeding please call us at 877-220-3089 and we would be happy to assist you.

Thank you for your question regarding Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix. The blue coating you are seeing is the Water Smart coating. This will allow the seeds to hold more moisture. It also has a bit of a fungicide and a bit of fertilizer in the coating to help with germination and to block disease to the seed. You can contact us if you need further assistance. We can be reached at 877-220-3089.

Expensive, but worth the peace of mind.
Did my front yard (approx 10k sqft) from scratch. At first I was skeptical of what brand to purchase,I couldn’t fathom spending $125 per bag but after spending three hard working days preparing the area to be seeded I couldn’t come to myself of purchasing seeds that might or might not work. So I went with it. Read about every review good and bad and concluded that’s Scott’s was the way to go. Couldn’t have made a better choice. Do your research don’t just seed and pray.

Easy to use
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The grass seed was very easy to spread and use. Filled up patches very well and grew fast. We loved this brand and product. Will use more often to fill patches. This is perfect for small jobs or even big ones.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Received my Scotts’s Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun And Shade Mix about A month Ago. I have used Scott’s products before but had not tried this one yet. I Love the Results that it has given me for my Front Yard.

Scotts-- the only name we trust with our lawn!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have now had the opportunity to use a variety of lawn products by Scotts! Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun & Shade Mix is super easy to disperse with our seed spreader, and takes under 45-minutes to cover our 3/4-acre property in full. Because we are in NY and have wooded areas in back of our property line, we are always seeking a product that is adaptable and will nourish our lawn despite varying conditions. Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun & Shade Mix has done a phenomenal job at giving us healthy looking grass year-round. Our grass is greener than ever after utilizing Scotts lawn products, and we get frequent compliments from neighbors and family!

Proud of My Lawn
For years we had weeds as lawn in our backyard. I got tired of looking at my ugly lawn that I couldn't use. I decided to start from scratch. I did my research and used Scotts Sun and Shade and Scotts Turf Builder Starter Lawn. I prepared the soil, put down the seed and starter lawn, and watered, watered, watered. It wasn't until about 3 weeks that I started seeing good growth. Every morning I was excited to go in the backyard and see how much had grown. I did have a lot of patches and threw down another round of seed at about 4 weeks. My husband is very proud of my work. I am a 59 year old woman and did almost all of the work on my own. My family now loves going in our backyard everyday. We now get birds, butterflies, and bees visiting us every day. These pictures were taken at 6 weeks from the day I put down the seed.

Weeds but no grass
This was the first time I used this product I prepared the soil and add top soil before seeding to patch part of my lawn. After five weeks, I see mainly weeds and no grass growth at all. Disappointing and would not recommend this product.
by Sintay
Response from ScottsCustomerCareOct 5, 2020
Sintay, we apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced with Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix. Soil preparation brings weed seeds to the surface. Seed should not be covered more than 1/4 inch thick or this will smother the seed. You may contact us if you would like to continue discussing this or if you want to know about our product guarantee. You may reach us at 877-220-3089 and refer to this product review when calling in. Scotts
Mostly weeds
More weeds than grass are coming up and most of the weeds produce goat heads. Anyone that says stepping on a lego is the worst thing has obviously never stepped on one of those. Thanks for ruining our yard
by ColoradoGirl82
Response from ScottsCustomerCareSep 10, 2020
We apologize that you were not thoroughly satisfied with Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix. It is normal to have some weeds germinate when seeding. There are approximately 10,000 weed seeds per 1 cubic foot of native soil. Soil preparation brings weed seeds to the surface. We recommend focusing on establishing the lawn first; weeds can be controlled later. A healthy, thick lawn will ward off most weeds. We want you to be confident about our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please call 877-220-3089 for assistance. When calling, please refer to this review. Scotts

Response from ScottsCustomerCareAug 22, 2020
Rob, we are sorry to hear of your disappointment with our Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix. If the seed was applied too thickly, that could hinder germination.

Rocky soil
I’m the new grounds keeper at an apartment complex. The owner bought the scotts sun and shade mix. We followed the directions. It’s been about 2 1/2weeks and have yet to see the seeds grow. Ground has gravel and rocks but very good soil. Been watering area since planting twice a day(morning and night on timer). No sign of new grass growth. Getting discouraged. Was looking forward to taking shoes off and walking through grass and being proud of what was accomplished. The owners bought 4 bags.
