Ineffective product, no grass at all after 10 days....

By RWard

Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace® Certain Seed® 3.75lb Combination Mulch, Seed and Fertilizer:

Bought 1 bag for patch repairs to lawn. After 10 days, following exact directions (it's grass seed, duh!), NOTHING grew. I took the package back to the store and got a free replacement. This time, I used the product on another freshly prepared area, while using a grass-seed only compound (Scotts) on a different area. I sowed both areas at the same time, and watered both equally on the same schedule. The "certain seed" product once again produced NOTHING, while the Scott's seed product produced beautiful grass within 8 days. 2 separate bags, same unacceptable result.

I am usually satisfied with Ace products, but this one is a stellar disappointment! Either both bags were defective, or this is just a sham product.

Do yourself a favor -- spend a bit more and stick with name-brand grass seed products if you want to see actual grass as a result.

      Best grass regrowth product I have ever used. New grass after just a few days. It is super fast, but a bit hard to find in stores. It must sell out quickly. Love this stuff!

        My review is opposite of the other person. This product sprouts grass as fast as the next day or two. I did a side by side comparison with Scotts EZ grass seed and was sorely disappointed. It didn't sprout for days, if at all. REturned that bag for full refund since it's guaranteed. The Ace Certain Seed is easy to use, simple prep of the ground by scraping the dirt, toss the mixture around, water regularly, and wha-la!, grass by the next day or two starts to appear. I'm a non-gardener who never planted grass before so when this one worked, I was so thrilled. I was spot treating many bare areas in my grass - some very large spots. this product workds!!

          Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace® Certain Seed® 3.75lb Combination Mulch, Seed and Fertilizer:

          The package indicates this 3.75 lb bag will cover about 150 sq feet. The instructions state that the product is to be applied at a density such that none of the underlying soil is visible. My experience is that this bag came nowhere close to covering 150 sq feet of area. By my measurements, it was < 49 sq feet, even when I started applying the product at a lower than recommended density half-way through the job as I could quickly see there was a problem. A competing product, Scott's EZ seed, has one apply the product at a much lower density and it's possible the ACE Certain Seed might have stretched out to 100 sq feet were it applied at that density. So either the estimate of coverage area on the bag is a substantial underestimate or the instructions are wrong, but whatever the case there is a serious problem with the ACE Certain Seed product. Whether or not I ultimately get efficient grass seeding for the area is irrelevant at this point. My decision to purchase this product as opposed to just buying straight grass seed was highly influenced by the coverage area listed on the bag. I would have been far better off just purchasing grass seed, which is ultimately what I had to do to finish the job anyway. Moreover, the same results with a far larger coverage area would likely be achieved more economically from a bag of Scott's Lawn Soil plus a bag of straight grass seed.

          In 15 years of shopping at ACE this is the first time I have ever been completely disappointed with a purchase. I reported the problem to my local ACE store, but I was so annoyed with this product I felt the need to report it here too to ensure that somebody at ACE and/or other customers can be informed of this problem. It's not clear how the "30-day return guarantee" applies to me here because there is nothing to return - I used up all the product in the act of determining that it could not perform as advertised.
