Emily, we're sorry to hear Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed didn't germinate as expected. for best results, temperatures should be consistently between 60-80 degrees. Reach out to us here for assistance with our product guarantee: https://www.scotts.com/en-us/help-center
    Not impressed
    Spread the seed in early may, now in June I can still see some of the seeds. Not impressed for this expensive of a product.

    It works
    I read positive and negative reviews. For me I give it 5 stars. Just have to be patient. Took about a month.
      Performed well for me
      I smoked off the entire area then prepped for seeding. I covered the seed with Scotts Turf Builder Lawn Soil. 21 days in the grass is mostly 3in or more. I watered as recommended but I truly believe the rain was much more beneficial as I noticed a huge flush of growth as opposed to my hose water. I have a few weeds along the edges as expected but virtually none within the patch. Still to be determined how it will hold up in the summer here in Jersey so I gave it 4 stars.

        SO Sad
        We had a very large tree fall in our yard and after only 12 hours or so, areas of the grass were patchy. Of course it got worse when the tree removers finished. We raked up the areas and put down Scotts (coated) Grass Seed for Sun & Shade and watered, watered watered. It's been two weeks and some of the grass seed has grown. AND so has crab grass and some other plant (green leaves with purplish stems). I have pulled about 100 of these unwanted plants and there are MANY more. :( Beside that, this seed is supposed to grow grass within two weeks and I still have SEVERAL bare spots.

          Worst seed…ever!
          I’d used this in the past and was reluctant but tried it again.. I’m disappointed. This is what little did germinate after 6 weeks, 2 seedings and watering twice a day in temperatures in the 70’s & 80’s. To top it off I spent $100 on Scott’s topsoil to plant it in. Needless to say, the word topsoil doesn't apply to that product because there is NO soil in the mix. Never again!

          Mark, we are sorry that the germination rate of your Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix was unsatisfactory. There are a variety of factors that play a role in successful germination, and if even just one of these factors is not right the germination of the seed can be affected greatly.

            Great Product
            We have always had a hard time getting the grass to grow under the pine tree in our front yard, because of the size of the pine tree most of the grass shaded all day long. If you follow the directions on the bag for planting and watering the new grass seed, the results are amazing, as you can see from my before and after pictures! I am very satisfied with the product, and would highly recommend it. Thanks
              Extremely Disappointed
              I bought 3 bags of this seed (for back yard), 3 bags of Scotts Starter fertilizer (for entire property) and a brand new Scotts Deluxe edgeguard spreader. Everything was Scotts branded product. I followed their recommendations to the letter. Cut the existing lawn to the lowest level, then dethatched, then spike aerated, then followed spread rate on the bag for overseeding (1 number heavier with my Scotts spreader) and used Scotts Starter fertilizer at recommended setting (with my Scotts spreader). And, moved sprinklers around daily until there was some growth. Nature helped alot. Now, in the spring, the fruits of my labor failed me, or was it the product. The only thing that came up is my old original grass. I have spent alot of time, money and labor to overseed my back lawn and it looks as bad as it did before (these are after pictures) I took on the project. Literally. I have been a loyal customer to Scotts for over 50 years and this is the absolute pits......yes I'm over 70 yrs old.

                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.
                  Great Product
