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.

      Comments about MIRACLE GRO Scotts® 1 Cu. Ft. Turf Builder Lawn Soil (79551750):

      I moved into a new home and the grass in the backyard was horrible. Very patchy and dead grass everywhere. I was starting from the beginning. I seeded my lawn and did not have high hopes because its mid summer, 90 degrees everyday. I used this product with the Scotts heat tolerant grass seed. I seeded 4 weeks ago with regular top soil from Lowe's and had very spotty growth. I decided to start over again using the Scotts top soil and what a huge difference it made. It was pretty pricey soil but purchased anyway. In one week I am seeing grass sprouting all over. The reviews saying that there were other materials in the dirt really scared me but I purchased 6 bags and there were no foreign objects in my bags at all. No glass, metal, clay etc. I will definitely use this again.

          Comments about MIRACLE GRO Scotts® 1 Cu. Ft. Turf Builder Lawn Soil (79551750):

          I used this on top of regular topsoil thinking why not is was more expensive but it was only a small area. The grass I planted grew Ok (I would not say faster or better than I have seen with plain topsoil and regular watering) But there were all of these other grass like shoots that I did not plant outgrowing my new grass. I am not sure what to do, I guess when the shorter desired grass gets established I will try a weed killer to see if it gets rid of the "bonus" grass that Scotts thought I wanted. I know the undesirable grass was in the soil because it was growing in the bag.

            I am really disappointed in this product -- followed the directions on the bag, and after the first rain (which was not a downpour), all that was left was a bunch of wood chips and pieces of ground-up plastic and metallic foil. My grass seed was exposed and the birds had a heyday. I am shocked that Scott's would put their name on this. It isn't cheap to buy, but they sure have made it "cheap" with all the non-organic filler, and maybe a moment of silence for whatever "soil" was mixed in to make it look good. What a complete waste of time and money. I will think twice before buying another Scott's product.

                  I used Scotts Lawn Soil when overseeding my lawn this Spring and noticed quite a bit of foreign debris mixed in with the soil. There were pieces of broken glass, shredded plastic, shredded paper, large twigs, etc. mixed in. Makes you think twice about walking on your beautiful lawn barefoot. I will not be purchasing Scotts Lawn Soil when overseeding in the future. I may stop using Scotts altogether. Very disappointed.

                      I am a past user of this product with nice success. However I am very hesitant to purchase this product after reading many reviews concerning poor quality and stone, tar, roots, sticks etc.. in the product. Can Scott's offer an assurance that the quality control issues have been addresses and fixed for 2016? Thanks

                          This was all done in early September of 2015 and took 4 weeks.
                          Bought 15+ bags for a major backyard lawn repair.
                          I killed all the Bermuda grass areas and scraped out all dead sod. Then put down an inch (or more) of the Scotts LawnSoil.
                          Seeded with a bluegrass/perennial rye mix and covered with straw.
                          Seed made a good start and I never let it dry out.
                          Overtime the pebbles, clay balls and mulch chips surfaced and most of the new grass died.
                          I will have to redo all this in the spring using a highly screened loam.
                          Spring is a bad time for seeding new grass because of the need for pre-emergence to control the crabgrass.
                          My advise - this is a WAY TOO MUCH work for a homeowner DYI project started in the 90 degree humid weather. Especially for such disappointing results.
                          In the long term hire a qualified landscape company to do this. It is faster, less expensive and guaranteed to be a better result.

                                  I bought 4 bags for significant patch repair work. Each bag was loaded with stick remnants, twigs, and assorted foreign objects including roofing nail and asphalt shingle remnants. I had to carefully sift through each bag load by hand in a wheelbarrow. What a joke. I mixed in some of my own soil just to be sure there was real dirt in the mix. We just had a good rain and I checked the areas and sure enough once the soil washed in a bit you could see large quantities of filler debris on the surface. Never again.

Could not even crush them. I will never use this product again. I would be better off with potting soil than this joke.

                                                I brought a bag of Scotts Turf Builder Lawn Soil and put it down on bare patches in my yard, not one blade of grass grew. But the patches where I did not use this product I have new grass.

                                                    I had a few dead patches in my yard, so I purchased Scotts Lawn Soil and Scotts Kentucky Bluegrass seed to fill the patches. I opened the bag and it was basically bark mulch with rocks mixed in. I screened it best I could and put down what is called "soil" along with smaller bits of wood and rocks and mixed in the seed. Three weeks later after watering every day, nothing. Not only did I waste money on the "Lawn Soil" and seed, but I wasted money using all that water. Very disappointed in this product and Scotts. Wish I had read the other reviews before throwing my money away. Now I have to rake the mulch out of the lawn and start over with something else. Scotts- why don't you screen this much?? Charge a few extra dollars, but it would at least be soil and not mulch and rocks.

                                                        Couldn't use it. Bought 4 bags. Opened the first and it was full of wood pieces and infested with carpenter ants. Totally disappointed.

                                                            I am very annoyed that I bought four bags of this stuff and now have no new grass and lots of rocks, finger-sized wood chips, and lots of mushrooms in my yard now. It went down easy and looked rich but immediately I could see that there were too many stones and mulch or larger sized pieces of wood. After a solid few days of rain I know have lots of mushrooms instead of grass and the rain has revealed even more stones and wood chips than I originally thought was in the mix. I have read the reviews and responses from Scott's on this site but in the end it's not a product I can reccomend nor will I ever use again. Buy local is what I think is my next step.

The previous owner had let the lawn go and was need of some serious TLC and some elbow grease. I used a thatching rake to get up all the dead build up from what looks like years of neglect. I did a layer of lawn soil, then used Scott's Kentucky blue grass and fescue grass seed, then another layer of lawn soil. Given the clay soil already under the lawn, the previous neglect, amount of erosion over the life of the lawn and crazy temperature shifts we've had since planting the seeds, the lawn looks amazing! I can't believe how well the grass looks. It does take some work, but if you put the work in you get the results. Just a side note, I had quite a bit to fill in and I've used close to 20+ bags of the lawn soil for 400-500 sq ft lawn. Building in some spots close to 2" up to where I want it. It is a great product, and I will definitely would recommend to anyone. Like my old drill Sergeant in the army said when teaching us to some boots, "all you need is a little elbow grease".

Also, such Mix has been effective for me in southern Wisconsin. Should you choose the Mid Mix in southern Illinois, please use this product (Lawn Soil) with the grass seed. The climate has been brutal in the southern half of IL, IN, and Missouri in my experiences. So applying both of these products together will get you a better lawn. However, I would not use too much of this with a KY mix, unless you want to experiment first. Thanks!

It worked great and was excited to use it again this fall when I used it in conjunction with reseeding my lawn. Scott's instructions are to spread it out evenly throughout the yard but I found this difficult to do, as there were many clumps when I tried to distribute the soil over my lawn. Does anyone have tips for help with this step for next year?

                                                                                                I moved to No.Michigan from San Diego, California nearly 6 years ago into my wife's beautiful home, nestled in the middle of the woods. My biggest issue, BESIDES WINTER, was that our yard consisted of a dirt patch, with weeds, moss, a few lonely blades of grass, and Maple-Tree seedlings. I wanted a lawn, and I promised my wife that we'd have one. I roto-tilled the back yard as well as a strip, in front, next to our road. I seeded, watered, and waited for a green lush blanket of green grass to emerge...didn't happen. Sure, we had a few patches of grass but not the lawn I had envisioned. For four years I've tried everything, including renting a concrete-mixer and mixing topsoil, manure, and sand inside of my garage and, with my wheelbarrow, transferring it to the yard, and shoveling it onto our sandy soil. Still, the result was not much better. This last spring I decided to "splurge" and purchase some Scott's Turf Builder Lawn Soil. I loosened the existing soil, mixed in the Scott's Soil, seeded with Scott's "Sun & Shade" grass seed, added starter fertilizer, watered, and within two weeks it began to sprout beautiful grass. In years past this would happen then, within a few weeks, it would die off...even with regular feeding and watering. This year, after nearly 5 months ...WE'VE GOT A LAWN...STILL!!! And, it keeps growing thicker and more beautiful each day! It's late summer now...leaves are changing, ferns are dying, and Mother Nature is forcing the our lush greenery to leap toward the fall, but our lawn continues to thrive. Honestly speaking, there are a couple of bare spots but next spring, with Scott's help, I'll know exactly how to fix them. I told you, Honey, we would have a lawn...and now we do! Thanks Scott's for helping me keep my promise. I should have used Scotts Turf Builder Lawn Soil to begin with. I'll gladly continue with your products from now on!

I am very happy with the ease and quality of the soil used in juntion with Scotts Sun and Shade seed mix and my yard is very full and green with only the maintaining of the proper watering during the first few weeks after seeding and my lawn was full and ready to be enjoyed throughout rest of summer/Fall here in Il before the winter arrives and snow cover and the ground becoming frozen.
