I live in NE Florida and planted these seeds the beginning of August. The pictures are 2 1/2 weeks after I laid them. My soil has a lot of sand in it and it's not in the healthiest. The previous homeowners had their downspouts emptying onto the front lawn (stripped my soil) and we've had a lot of hurricanes that have taken their toil on it too. Here's what I did and the results: 1. I tried my best to rip up and prepare the compacted soil (roots from a huge oak hindered my efforts). 2. I laid down a lot more seed than they said to knowing a lot would not sprout. I did try to gently rake them into the soil. 2. I watered at least 2x a day (this is a MUST for the seeds to germinate). Results: 1. The sandy areas did not stay moist enough for the seeds to germinate. The compacted areas with roots saw zero germination. The decent areas I was able to loosen up saw about 40% germination. Fertile areas germinated real well... I'd estimate 75% + germinated. 2. Ssssllllooooowww growth. I don't know if it's partly due to the fact it's hurricane season again so there are days that are mostly overcast, but those shoots are barely growing. "Like watching the grass grow" is a euphemism I can now relate too. So... If you aren't willing to break up/till the soil before laying the seeds, don't buy the seeds. If you can't water the seeds at least 2x a day, don't buy the seeds. Whatever you do, don't expect miracles. This is a lot of work for small, slow results. I would have loved to plant bermuda sod, but they don't carry it locally. Seeds were my only option and it should result in mature grass by next spring.

Great seed! Grew after a week
I’m in Phoenix and its July. I put the seed down on a few bare spots and watered 3 times a day for a week. I now have grass growing in the bare spots. I'll be buying more.

Not working for me
Prepare the ground. Cut the existing rye grass down. Dethached the yard. Three days later after heavy rain. Went back over my yard with a rake to get the remaining dead grass up to much as possible bare dirt. Used two bags(5lbs) each over 1,000sq ft along with starter fertilizer. It’s been three weeks.....in VA and weather is between 80-90 degrees. With me watering and rain it’s getting plenty of water. Have very few small places it has grown.....but 85% of the yard is still bare. Now The potential for weeds developing is a concern.

The seeds germinated in one week after planting. The terminating rate is high. It was late summer. We soaked the seeds in water overnight before planting. So far, the one month old grass does not look like adult Bermuda, but looks healthy.

Big mistake
I bought this a couple of months ago and followed the directions. After a couple of weeks, I could see little blades of Bermuda start to show up. The surprising thing is something else was showing up in mass. It appears to be poa sprouting up everywhere I spread the seeds and is dominating the areas and now invading the rest of my lawn. I sprayed for weeds to no avail. It acted like fertilizer on the weeds so the only remedy is apparently to try and pull it up by hand or bring in equipment to strip my yard and start over. I've been using Scott products for years but I'll be seeking alternatives from now own. This is going to be an expensive lesson.

We hate to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with Scotts Turf Builder® Grass Seed Bermudagrass. It is normal to have some weeds germinate when seeding. We Recommend focusing on establishing the lawn first; weeds can be controlled later. A healthy, thick lawn will ward off most weeds. We offer a guarantee that extends to all of our products.
