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.
