For the most part I don’t know what people are reviewing here that are giving THIS product a BAD review. So far I have had great success with it. After doing the soil and fertilizer mixes myself for years I saw this product. It’s GREAT for patching, especially when you figure the starter fertilizer is already mixed in. Now, my yard is a balanced Ph (everyone who is particular about their lawn should have the soil and the nutrients tested every 3 years, it makes a world of difference what your soil needs). I use a grass seed mix that’s 60% Kentucky Blue/35% Fescue/5% other. Beginning this Fall I tested two empty patches of my lawn. One I used straight seed (no extra dirt, no extra fertilizer). The other spot I roughed up the ground slightly with a hand cultivator, laid a little of this Scotts product, some seed, another handful of this dirt to cover & watered. Both areas received a mild layer of straw for keeping the soil moist during the first week of germination. Germination on the area where I did not use this product was about 50-60%. The place where I DID use Scotts Turf Builder Lawn Soil, germination was 85-90%...far closer to what the grass seed bag says germination rate should be. I did three separate 1-square inch areas for both locations. Also, Scotts Soil area had a much healthier green color to the grass. Yeah, the bag it comes in could be sealed better, maybe? I have NEVER gotten mud from the bag however. But you could tell when Lowes or Home Depot may have left it out in the rain instead of tucking it under shelving. That seems to be more or less a tandem concern between manufacturer and seller. Either way, a little hand work my be needed to break up large clumps. Still, the bag is FAR better than most other soil bags. As far as overall product quality...after purchasing 15-20 bags of this product so far this year I have found no more than a few small twigs and minuscule stones total throughout all the bags. Again, this product is great for patching. Actually cost-effective for patching. However, it’s not cost effective if you need to do a whole front yard. Unless you are super-rich of course like most of us surely are. ;-)

I have used Scott's products for about 30 years now and most get the job done well. I decided this year to completely tear up my existing backyard lawn and plant a new lawn. I purchased 18 bags of Turf Builder Lawn Soil and used it as a base mixed with the existing soil and as a light top-coat to the newly planted seeds. And in general the product performed as advertised but did have some unintended consequences. Each bag probably contains about a normal 2x4 sized amount of wood chipped into it. The wood is dyed dark brown so as to match the rest of the contents, but within weeks the dye washes off and you've got typical light wood chips throughout your lawn. These chips are fingernail sized pieces, some are larger, which if not picked out of the top-coat will inhibit the grass from growing. Because once the newly seeded lawn is watered they become embedded into the soil and new grass shoots cannot push them aside. Also, the amount of wood in each bag promotes the growth of mushrooms in the lawn. I planted this lawn in the Spring and the daily growth of mushrooms continues it's now mid-August. Also because of the moisture control elements of this soil, you really should water less than you usually do, as overwatering and drown grass can easily occur if you adhere to your normal watering/sprinkler regime. So if you want to water less, pick embedded wood chips out of your newly seeded lawn and have a daily supply of mushrooms...this is the product for you. I think I'd stick with a regular bag of Scott's or other topsoil and add Starter Fertilizer and seed if I were to start this project over again, and save about 2/3rd's of the soil costs. Probably a good product under certain circumstances, as a soil additive to enrich poor soil, but understand the downsides before you try it.

      I used this product side by side on a comparison to an amended bulk soilon large bare spot on our lawn. My only regret is I don't think I can buy Scott's in bulk. It absolutely outperformed the competition by 50%. Very fast germanation

              I have had a very nice experience with Scotts Turf Builder LawnSoil. I had a large area that my dog killed the grass. He made it his favorite restroom spot. I put the Scotts LawnSoil down, added seed and watered once a day. The results are great. 4 weeks and almost completely grown in. I am at the point now where I can let mother nature finish the work. I am pleased with how well the grass has grown in and would not hesitate to use this product again. I have included my before and after pics. Good stuff.

AFTER SPENDING SOME TIME BREAKING IT APART THE SOIL MAKES A VERY NICE COVER FOR NEW SEED ,ALSO SEEMS TO CONTROL MOISTURE. NEW SEED GROWTH SEEMS TO BE DOING WELL.

                                  I received this thru the ROOT Adviser program and used this with the Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Kentucky Bluegrass Mix with smart water plus. The only thing that I didn't like was that when I opened the bag it was like one giant brownie and I had to put this in the wheel-barrel and break it up with a shovel and my hand. I would have had it to have been more like a bag of top soil and lose or better workable out the bag then the way it was. So that is why the difficult to use rating it needed to be broken down in order to use correctly

                                      You could tell it was great soil when I opened the bag, had great texture, did not clump together! I used this soil with Scott's tall fescue and put straw over top and it filled in with grass in about 10 days with no help from me! It is Expensive soil, but if you spend money on quality seed you need to ensure there germination.

                                          Dark, Rich soil that grass really love. Be sure to water as directed and you will have grass growing nice and health in no time. I used it to help fill in a hole left behind by removing a tree. Can't even tell the tree was there. Used it sparingly for hanging plants also with very good results.

Scratched up problem spots ( moles and voles ) and put about a quarter inch on new grass seed ( again b-4 we traveled to Maine.) Upon returning all was green with new grass .

                                                        This product was too "lumpy" and dense. I blended it with organic material and used it with "Patchmaster". It the preformed fine. The concept is great. It just in my view needs to be blended.

                                                                I had to reseed some of my back yard due to dogs tearing it up during the winter. Once the weather got warmer I spread this out in the areas and put down Scotts sun and shade mix seed. Watered everyday and within 2 weeks I was mowing the bare areas of the lawn. Although it is a little more in price it is worth it.

I also used the grass seed that you sent to test also. I'm starting to have new grass grow in those areas. Saved me from buying sod. Thank you!

If worked so well I went out and bought some for my planter boxes and they flowers love it too. It must have just the right nutrients for grass and plants because I don't usually see such great results so soon.

I rake up my patch in the lawn, apply the Turf Builder Lawn Soil and then shake the seeds. I never have any issues with the area and the seeds always sprout into new grass. This dirt is great to use when you want to put down seed since it has turf builder in it and helps the seeds grown.
