Questions & Answers

can i use a spreader with this product and will it grow if it is just spread on top of the ground

Asked by: Action
I would not try to grow this or any grass seed by just throwing it on top of the ground. Rake the area, lightly break up the soil, and spread the seed. Then when it rains or when you lightly spray it with the hose the loose soil will become muddy and will cover the seed with a light layer of mud. I think that's the secret.

Backyard has a lot of dead spots. Unsure why. Will this help me out? Do I need to rake out dead areas first?

Located in Southern NJ
Asked by: FrankM
I had same situation. Raking out the dead area first is always beneficial, but not always necessary depending on the covering, be it thatch or leaves, etc. Clearing the ground will help the seeds reach soil quicker. This fills in the spots nicely!

I spread two full large bags on unplanted soil. It is now sprouting, and about 10% looks like straight grass blades, and 80% looks like clover or something with several leaves. Is this the grass seed from the bag??
Asked by: CapeCod
We are sorry that you are experiencing this issue after planting Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun & Shade Mix. Scotts grass seeds are thoroughly cleaned and are 99.9% weed seed free. Weeds can germinate during a new seeding project due to your native soil previously containing weed seeds and the area being disturbed. If you have other questions or you're unhappy with your purchase, please contact us at 877-220-3089.

I bought 2 of 20 lb. Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix for my yard. I live in Kansas City and weather was around 70s but now all the sudden 90s and seems like it will be 90s for a while. Can I seed now or is it too hot. I can water 2-3 times a day to keep them moist. I will also use turf builder starter fertilizer. I did rake my old grass and got rid of the dead grass.
Asked by: Sami
should be fine but only water is in the early am and evening.You should have seeded in october/november though....if you put peet moss over the top of seeds they will stay more moist and not bake in direct sunlight...good luck.

Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix 7 lb. is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 2048.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty amazing product. After reading reviews, I ended up doubling the amount of seed recommended... Pretty amazing product. After reading reviews, I ended up doubling the amount of seed recommended to be put down (I used 60 lbs on roughly 6000 sq ft). Other than that I followed the instructions to a T. I found it to be extremely durable. I live in upstate NY and the weather is always unpredictable. The day after I planted it, we got 3.5 inches of rain and the lawn sat underwater for a day or two. A few days later, it snowed just under an inch unexpectedly and stayed cold for a couple days. After that, I had given up on it and was going to lay more seed but my buddy who used it before encouraged me to wait. Sure enough, two weeks after I planted it, it started to pop up and came in nice and thick. It took a little longer than described but considering the weather, I wasn't upset!

Good grass seed, BUT, you need to wait until your soil temps are at a steady MINIMUM of 65 degrees F before putting it down. Then, just water it at least twice per day and keep it lightly wet for around two weeks or so. If you ever let it dry out when it's hot out before it sprouts, it could die, so be SURE to keep it wet until sprouting.

For the last month, I’ve been on a hunt for a grass seed that works for me. I did a crude experiment to provide some information I couldn’t find in my searches online. The attached pictures compare Scott’s Sun and Shade Mix with Scott’s Landscaper’s mix over 30 days. They were planted in the same Scott’s soil, watered at the same time, and sat in the same sun. After 7 days, the Sun and Shade had very little germination. The Landscaper’s mix was coming up fast, and was already much taller. But, 27 days later, the Sun and Shade mix caught up and the grass is a much nicer color and texture. Below are the seed makeups. The Sun and Shade has much more fescue and bluegrass than the landscaper’s mix. The landscaper’s mix is almost a lime green color, which hasn’t blended well with my mostly-fescue lawn. The gulf annual rye grass especially in the landscaper's mix almost looks like nutsedge, and it grows MUCH faster than the rest of my grass. I like the Sun and Shade mix much more, but it really has to be babied and kept moist. If you take care of it, it will come up beautifully. If you put out seed and pray, no grass will grow nicely.

Tried on top of Scott turf builder (3 inches!)-> nothing, on top of topsoils -> nothing, topsoils + peat-moss -> nothing. Temperature have been above 55 F for weeks now. The only quality I could find to this product is its color, but if you do not like blue, well, do not expect much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Blend This is a perfect blend of grass seed for me. I am in west central Ohio. Next to my house I get shade and sun that varies quite a bit over the course of the year. This seed mix doesn't care. I get shade and sun extremes depending on the time of year and this is the best grass blend that I have found. Takes extreme sun in the Summer and does well in total shade in early Spring and late Fall. I was asked to leave a review of this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This DID NOT make my lawn any thick'r, it did however make my wallet thinn'r. I tested this in different areas over the last month and a half, and not one spot that I put this down grew one bit. I was attempting to patch bare spots and notta, zip, zero, zilch. I also bought a bag of "thick'r lawn" which is grass seed and fert in a bag basically, same thing, no growth with anything scotts this year!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun & Shade mix This spring I used Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed & Shade Mix on several areas on my lawn that were thin after last season. The results are truly outstanding. I highly recommend this product to anyone. Growing grass is not rocket science by any means - it just takes some patience and keeping the seed moist until it germinates and takes root.
