I had a female, black lab for 15 years who wreaked havoc on my lawn. Every spring there would be dead patches of grass. Four years ago (maybe longer - - I've been using EZ Seed since they first came out with it) I started my spring patching with EZ Seed. I LOVE IT. #1 it is easy to apply. For me the less muss and the less fuss the better. You simply prep. your bare patches by raking the soil to loosen it up, which only takes minimum effort, and then you shake some EZ Seed onto the patch, spray the patches with water and viola - - the job is complete. #2 This seed grows so quickly. I didn't really believe the claims but I had grass sprouts within a week and a half or so. #3 The grass that grows from the seed needs little watering and is very lush, green and hearty. Oh and #4 it is so easy to know when to water the EZ Seed - when the patch material becomes light brown you water it. No more over or underwatering. This product is so easy to use, your 5-year old could do it. To recap: it is easy to apply, grows quickly, needs little watering, results in green lush grass and is easy to tend to until the grass grows. Since I started using EZ Seed I've never used anything else. It does what Scott's says it does.

I planted EZ Seed in some bare spots on our recently sodded lawn, preparing the soil in advance and watering faithfully 1-3 times a day (depending on the weather). It's been 5 weeks now and we've had consistently warm weather (60s-low 80's) the past couple of weeks but just a smattering of new grass to show for it. I'm beginning to think this product is nothing more than a bag of overpriced mulch.

      Comments about Scotts® 3.75lb Northern Blend Turf Builder Ez Seed Sun & Shade Grass Seed (17401):

      I use this product for touch up areas in my lawn. The combination of seed and fertilizer is easy for this type of touch up. I found that the difference between Scott's EZ seed and the competition is that Scott's uses three verities of Kentucky blue grass verses two by others . Germinates quick and is great along driveways and sidewalks. I only use Scotts products and this is in my arsenal for that go to quick use.

              Use of the Scotts EZ Seed has worked very well in repair of areas of my acreage lawn where White Clover choked out the existing seeding. Even though repair was attempted late in the season, with mild weather in later October and early November, the seeding is well established.

                          I have used this product several times and it never lets me down. What I really like is that I work all day and on regular grass seed I can't keep it watered enough to get good results. This product lets me give it a good soaking in the late afternoon and holds enough moisture to last throughout the next day. Rye grass comes up quickly and with the mulch it allows the fescue to germinate also, with other products you have to keep soaking 2-3 times a day for up to a month.

                                  I used this product to fill in bare spots along my driveway and at the edges of my flower beds. It flowed out of the bag quite easily. I made sure I watered every day. After about 7-8 days the seeds sprouted. I still kept watering every other day or so for the next few weeks. It filled in quite nicely. I definitely recommend this easy to use product for repairing bare spots.

                                      I put some down after I received it. It started to sprout and was easy to see when I had to water it. The product they put in with the see turns a different color when it needs water. I will be putting it to the real test in the Spring.

                                                Already planted some of both after trip back from New England . Growing well and looks good. Had natural rainfall to keep seed wet and temp will top off today around mid 70 ! Planted two ways and both doing great ! Scratched lose the soil ,planted,then covered ever so lightly with seasoned three year old mulch. #2 Didn’t do any prep AT ALL ,planted seed on bare earth, added some mulch ( good stuff ) and Voila ,Green grass. Still have some samples of both and will go at it again when the days get longer . Regards, Kelly

                                                    Received EZSeed to late in the year to apply on my lawn. I have used product before with great results. Looking forward to spring to patch up bare areas in my lawn.

                                                        I received the product at the end of the Fall season, and immediately applied the EZ seed to bare spots on my lawn. In particular, I am trying to repair spots in the yard resulting from pet ownership. The affected areas were raked out, and EZ seed applied. Application was easy. Since it was applied at he end of the season, I have not seen full results. I believe that EZ Seed will be especially useful in addressing my particular application, that is small affected areas where pets have affected the lawn. . I look forward to these results.

                                                            I received this in mid-October, and had occasion to seed a few small areas on new soil that was seeded and growing except for a few spots I missed. We had an unusually nice Fall in the Midwest with temps in the 60s during the day and 40s overnight, so I planted the missed areas. I am pleased with the results as the grass is growing! This was on a hillside area with a lot of rain this Fall, so very pleased it remained where it was placed and did so well.

                                                                I have always had great results with Scott's products and this is no exception. I certainly could use some replacement grass to "fix" my bare spots I created when I put in my drainage for my raised rose bed. Scott's came to the rescue. I was not disappointed. It just took off like a charm.

                                                                    I had multiple bare spots in my lawn that required reseeding. Although it was late fall, our whether in WI has been unseasonably warm. I decided to give the grass seed a try. Although it took a little longer for the seed to sprout, due to cool nights, the grass did begin growing and all bare spots have completely filled in. I can't wait until spring to see how nice my lawn looks now that it is filled in. The ease-of-use and the water retention factor of this product really makes it simple to use, with great results. Thanks Scotts for your wonderful products!

Living in New Jersey, I was not sure about the timing for the application. AFTER I applied I received an email from Scotts that the sample was sent to late and I should wait until the next growing season. So, we got a break on the weather and even thought the temps were in the 40's at night, the seed grew!. It is still thin but it is alive. I hesitate to water now due to frost so we will see what happens.

So I thought I'd give it a try in the fall time. Honestly it worked like a champ. Cold weather and all. Started to notice grass within 7 days or so. This is a great product in the spring , summer and fall!! I would definitely buy this again!!!
