Product Overview

Get outside and enjoy your lawn with Scotts Turf Builder Rapid Grass Sun & Shade Mix. With our unique, proprietary mix of grass seed and fertilizer in one effective formula, your lawn benefits from extended feeding, resulting in more full green grass! Compared to seed alone, your lawn will grow 2 times faster (when applied at the new lawn rate, subject to proper care). Use on either new lawns or overseeding existing grass. Scotts Turf Builder revolutionary sun and shade seed mix grows green, lush grass, in just weeks (see grass grow in 12 to 21 days)! Grass seed germinates best when temperatures are between 60°F and 80°F and after any chance of frost, usually in the Fall and Spring. To apply, rake the top layer of soil before applying grass seed with a Scotts spreader. For best results, water twice daily for at least 3 weeks. Each 5.6 lb. bag seeds 2,800 sq. ft. based on overseeding rate. Do not use weed control products until your lawn has been established (mowed at least 4 times), if you already applied weed control, please see those package directions on when to plant grass seed. Finally, be sure to apply Scotts Lawn Food products every 8 weeks throughout the season to help maintain your thick, green lawn.

Don't understand all the negative reviews.
This product worked great for me. Planted mid May in Wisconsin after tilling about 3-4". Spread Rapid Grass around. Watered 2x a day for a month and it's lush and beautiful now. Be patient and follow the steps on the bag.

    This grass never took in fresh soil
    Used this seed where I laid down fresh soil in mostly sunny area. Watered it. It changed from blue color to light brown. Never grew. Maybe it was a bad bag of seed but I don’t think you can return an empty bag and expect a refund. Bummer I’ll have to try a different brand

    We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Scotts Turf Builder Rapid Grass Sun & Shade Mix and appreciate your feedback. Any weed control used prior to seeding, such as using the crabgrass preventer, will prevent the seed from germinating.

    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 reach out to us at 877-220-3089 if we can further assist. Scotts

    Worked for me
    Saw a lot of bad reviews about this grass failing to germinate. I chose it anyway because it promised speed, and I had to seed a big yard at a rental house after a construction project. Long story short, it worked great. Came in thick and lush in a little over a month. I distributed tide laundry powder over the ground ahead of seeding, and it holds moisture about twice as well as it did previously which helped with seeding and now reduces water consumption.

      Amazing product!
      After I was left with a mess of a back yard after having a platform deck built, and only a month to get grass grown in for an event I'm having at my house ,=I bought this seed. What a great product! The before and after are 26 days apart. Watered every day several times and thrilled with the results.
        Not quite what I expected
        Selected this product after extended conversation with a Scott's customer svc. associate. Prepped the ground as directed, spread with a Scott's spreader using the advised setting, Watered 2x daily. Too many areas of ground where seeds did not germinate. Germination seems sporadic. Deciding to keep with Scott's or go with another product.

          Worked Like a Charm!
          Literally regrew my entire back yard after is was devastated in Hurricane Ida, and lay brown and frozen all winter. A few bags of this, one bale of hay and regular watering and it is emerald green again.

          Amazing Results
          I'm convinced that the negative reviews are from people who just tossed the seed down and expected it to grow. We had some thinning and completely bare spots that appeared after winter. I power raked with the SunJoe dethatcher which to be honest, terrified me after seeing how bare the lawn looked. But I applied the rapid seed and watered diligently, and I'm very happy with the results. Lawn is looking great and getting better by the day. This is a before and after shot. Couldn't be happier.

            Worked great!
            Used it on some extremely dry and clay like TN soil. It took a few weeks to really begin getting thick and lush, but it did! I took plenty of care to water it and the effort was not wasted.

            Do not buy this product.
            This stuff is no good at all. Today makes 2 weeks since I’ve planted the seed and covered with a thin layer of top soil. It gets watered for 10 mins 3 times daily at 7am, 1pm, and 7pm. There is a very low % of germination, I laid this stuff down thick by hand to cover up patchy spots. The first 3 pictures shown are Rapid Grass, and 2 final ones that look good are Lesco Double Eagle that was planted on the same day in the same manner and watered at the same times. I’ll only be buying Lesco now.

            Kevin, sorry to hear that Scotts Turf Builder Rapid Grass failed to germinate. This can happen for a number of reasons, If Temperatures are below 60 degrees or above 90 degrees seeds can go dormant. Use of weed controls and unfavorable soil conditions can cause seeds not to germinate as well. This product is backed by a Money back guarantee.

              SC beach property
              Our property is approximately 1/4 mile from the beach. Mostly Sandy soil and 3/4 of the lot is heavily wooded. We did not supplement the soil, only racked and germination has been fantastic! We’re very pleased so far! Waiting to see how the new grass holds up to summer heat and humidity.
