      Q:If I planted the seed with a spreader at 15 and I have spots that has not yet grown after 2 weeks, can I put more seeds down over the existing newly planted grass that's growing?

      Answer This Question

      A:  We do recommend that you water twice daily for 3 weeks for best results and reapplication is annually in spring or early fall to maintain a thick lawn. It is recommended to fertilize every 6-8 weeks to ensure continual growth.

          Grass On Steroids!
          This grass seed is amazing, see pics of the progress, today was the 17th day since seeding, on 9/16/23 I tilled soil first to prepare it, seeded with hand seeder, gently raked in, covered with straw, watered twice a day (morning/evening 30min.ea.) I couldn't believe how fast this germinated. I've mowed it twice already. I water it daily once a day now.

            picture says it all. I was skeptical about it when purchased. But started showing results in a week.

              Highly recommend!
              We used Scott’s Rapid 2X seed and 3 weeks we went from dirt to a full yard. We also used a soil conditioner called Soil Hume, weed killer meant for new seedlings called Tenacity, and Pete moss. We watered every day. Amazing results!

                This seed is garbage. I had roughly 800 square feet of areea to grow grass. Applied Easy Seed to 1/2 half of and rapid grow to the rest. Easy seed came in quickly and established itself well. It has been 10 days and the rapid seed has yet to germinate. Avoid this product at all cost.

                We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts Turf Builder Rapid Grass Sun & Shade Mix and appreciate your feedback.

                Depending on conditions and the seed type, the grass can take from 6 to 14 days to start to germinate. Germination requires air temperatures consistently above 65 degrees F. Cool nighttime temperatures and fluctuating temperatures will slow germination. Cold weather will delay germination but will not hurt the seed. Both excessive moisture and not enough moisture can inhibit seed germination. If a weed control is used before seeding, it will either prevent the seeds from germination outright or destroy the seedlings as they emerge.

                    Fantastic. Way beyond my expectations
                    My lawn was brown and spotted with bare spots. Three weeks later and it is vibrant green, thick and most bare spots filled in. I examined where it hadn’t grown well and realized my raking had not been enough to remove residual leaf mulch. It seems like good raking is critical. Also I chose to plant just before an extended period of rain and in the few days it didn’t rain twice I also watered. So good raking and lots of water with not much sun in the first week. Worked great. I’m usually pretty good at killing plants so this is a notable exception

                      Weed Field! Do not use this seed.
                      Re did my front and back yard. Both had grass but were filled with low spots (holes). I had 9 yards of brown topsoil brought in and the front and back were graded at the same time. I have a large fenced in back yard that my dogs play in daily. When purchasing the grass seed I went with this brand for the back yard because it supposedly grows faster than others, and I did not want to use any chemicals to achieve a thick lawn. I really was hoping my dogs would have their yard back before the end of the summer. The front yard I did with seed that costed 50% less than the Rapid Grass. Outcome: Back yard is a WEED FIELD! see pic Front yard is thick and barely weed free. Same Dirt in front and back, same watering schedule (water timer) look at the pics and decide for yourself. Unfortunately I now have to close off the yard, put weed and feed down, then re seed with the brand I used in the front yard. Waste of money but more importantly a waste of my time. DO NOT USE THIS WEED SEED!

                      Our growing media products undergo composting that kills most weed seeds, however since we do not sterilize our soils some may remain. We chose not to sterilize our soils as this would kill beneficial microorganisms that help the growth of plants. We are able to offer our "weed-free guarantee" by way of our No Quibble Guarantee.

                        Comes in fast and green
                        I accidently killed my lawn using the wrong herbicide. Lawn was brown around Mothers day and i didnt want to start the summer off without a lawn. Picked up a few bags of rapid grass just to get some green quickly. Within a month i had slightly less than a full lawn. If you keep up with watering everyday this stuff is great. I also spread a layer of top soil over the seed after spreading following the rate on the bag. Grass is very lush and green. More expensive then other bags of seed but im happy with the results and how quickly i got there.

                          Grass and weeds in a bag!
                          When properly applied and cared for, it will grow grass. But it will also grow weeds. My plan is to treat the new grass with weed killer after another month or so. It's been 2 months since I seeded.

                            We have not had grass in our campground yard for 7 years. Planted this in April and a month later had a beautiful lawn.
