The Texas Sun is unforgiving. It will dry you grass and the earth will form cracks. The solution? Sensible watering at the right times and Scotts turf builder Sunny Mix. This seed will hold the water and resist the harsh Texas sun and sprout like a champion! If you follow directions, it WILL work. Thank goodness there is a product out there that can give us pride in our lawns! Thank you, Scotts!

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):

      After doing some repair work around my home I had several areas that needed the grass repaired. I raked the areas and I covered it with Scotts EZ Seed Patch & Repair Sun and Shade. Watered as directed and normal rain did the rest. The areas are nice and green and no more bare spots. It was very easy to use. Better than just regular grass seed.

          I followed all the instructions - prepped the soil, spread the seed, kept it watered. I now have a lovely green patch. It is ALL WEEDS. The only grass appears to be grass that grew through the dirt. I don't even know what these weeds are, as I don't have them anywhere else in my lawn, just here. Maybe it was from the dirt, but either way, there is no grass.

              I used EZ Seed to fix two small bare spots in my yard and it was nice to have everything you needed in one application but when it grew in it was a little patchy since you have no control where your seed germinates or how much seed you want down. However, when the rhizomes took root it all filled in and looks great!! You would never know where I patch seeded, it blended in perfect.

                  I like this product because it is very easy to use. I wasn't sure how it would do, we've been having some pretty heavy rains, but that didn't seem to matter. The Seedlings were up in just under 14 days and seem to be doing fine! I love the easy sprinkling cap! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

                          I used EZ Seed to repair my dogs "favorite spots" in the yard. I just raked the dead spots and loosened the soil. Simply sprinkled the EZ seed over the spots and kept them watered in about 25 days the grass was filling in nicely.

                              We bought three large bags of this ez seed because of the good reviews. We tried on many occasions and in different areas to grow grass in our yard. We followed to exact directions on the bag and we have seen no growth. We have also tried the same areas a few times. Also, my husband has tried and I have tried. Very frustrating!

                                  brought two containers of this product and used one and a half of them. Followed directions and not one blade of grass grew! took back the unused container for my money back but the retailer would only give my money back on one because I had already tossed the first one. Very disappointed in the product.

                                      This makes filling the small patches I have my yard very easy. I just followed the directions and was careful not to over the holes as directed. I watered daily and now it looks great! Very easy to use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

                                        I have given this product 2 chances and it has just turned out to be a waste of money. Followed the instructions and all I have are brown areas in my yard with NO grass growing. It's overpriced, and just plain terrible.

I would not recomend this product or neither of the other products because they burn my grass and are a waste of money.

                                                      This was very easy to put down and then it didn't take very long and grass started coming up. It will be filled in in no time. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

                                                              This grass seed is as EZ as its name. MY husband made me a new veggie bed and left plain dirt in front of it when he was done. We like to grow our grass right up to the front of the bed so I had to reseed. All I did was rake out the soil and shake out the EZ Seed, it was that simple. I really liked how easy it was to see if it needed watering and no extra starter fertilizer was necessary. Any novice can grow grass seed with this. I took a pic of it as it was growing and noticed the grass I already had wasn't nearly as nice looking. I think I need to do the whole back yard in EZ seed.

I also have a neighbor selling his house and I don't want my yard with bare spots being the reason he stays :) Just be sure you water the new grass when it comes up and you will be fine. My lawn is a fine fescue and this seems to be blending well.

I had accidentally grabbed the wrong bottle to spray lawn weeds and wound killing the weeds and the lawn. Therefore what I did was dug up the dead grass creating some bear shallow holes. Next I mixed Scotts lawn soil with some mushroom compost and filled in the holes. I then topped them off with the Scotts EZ Seed. And to the delight of my wife, who was upset about my poor mistake, and myself, there is now little baby grasses growing in each of the filled in holes. Please note, it is very important to follow instructions to the best of your ability and to make sure you follow a strict watering schedule. From previous experience, if the grass doesn't grow in as dense and thick as you would normally like it. I have found that the following summer your wishes will come true. This grass does grow. I wouldn't use anything else. Warning: do not stand in the direction of wind if putting it down on a windy day. You'll wind up wearing it.

                                                                                                      This is a great solution to fixing the dogs' holes as we mow our "park". We just carry it on the riding mower and when we encounter a new spot, it is easy to fix it quickly. The sun/shade mix means not having to cart around two different kinds of seed, and the container is easy to stow away onboard. Thanks!

EZ Seed worked great. Easy to apply and held moisture as advertised. Grass started sprouting within a few days.
