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.

      I am terribly disappointed in this product! My husband and I spent hours tilling our lawn, raking, apply this seed and watering religiously for weeks... to only grow CRABGRASS!

              I purchased this product along with Turf Builder 1.5 cu. ft. Lawn Soil to fill in a bare patch in my lawn. The grass began to grow in nicely and I was really very happy. I came out one morning to water the grass and the ENTIRE patch had been taken over by one type of weed. This weed isn't present anywhere else in my yard (or my neighbors' yards, I checked). I wanted to test and make sure that it really was the fault of these products so I used both the EZ Seed and the LawnSoil to grow a patch of grass in a container. The grass began to grow and then the entire container was taken over by the same weed. My lawn is far from perfect. You can see that by looking at the photo I've uploaded with this review. I have dandelions and thistle and a few other kinds of weeds as well. But this was supposed to be a step towards fixing the lawn and instead it just introduced another weed into the mix. In the photo you can see EXACTLY where the grass seed was planted because it's EXACTLY the same area as the patch of weeds. I planned on seeding the other area of bare soil in the photo at the same time as this patch but I'm glad I didn't waste my time. What a huge waste of money and all the time and effort I put into preparing the bare patch of my lawn for seeding. I have to start over from scratch and I won't be using ANY Scotts products this time around.

                  I purchased a container to fill in bare spots on a small (10x20) lawn area. The first application did not work, so I bought another and tried it again. As far as I can tell not a single blade of grass grew.

                      seems to work okay on small spots. Doesn't seem to work well on larger areas(3' x 4'). Thought maybe 1st container was an issue. 2nd container not much better(purchased from different vendor). Sparse growth. Even some small spots not germinating. Similar problems with this product last year. Old fashion seeding with seed, peat moss, etc. works the best.

                          Purchased this product to fill in several bare spots on our lawn. Mostly semi- shaded areas. Found the seed to germinate fast- around 5-7 days. Also the included mulch helped keep the seeded area moist. Keep watering daily or as necessary during germination period. Overall an excellent product. Buy again- YES!

                              I used this product to reseed thin shaded areas and several bare areas in my lawn. I hand spread the product and was careful to have some dirt showing as instructed and kept it moist. Grass grew well in planting areas where the mulch that is included in the product happened to be amply applied. Seeds did not germinate elsewhere. I believe that there is not enough mulch in the product and the mulch is not evenly distributed in the bag. I used a 40 lb bag.

                                            I purchased the 20 lb. bag of EZ Seed for a 300 sq. ft. area. The grass grew in patches and after the grass got to a height of about 2 inches, it grew no taller. The product is way over priced for the results it produces!

                                                          Most of the seeds did not sprout, and none at all on a slope. I'm very disappointed in this product.

                                                              This is advertised as grows anywhere guaranteed, well I can say that is not true. In our yard we have a long strip of lawn that gets only a few hours of sunlight a day. I prepared everything just as I should and watered the lawn everyday and after 2 weeks nothing. There was little strands of grass in very few spots but nothing like it should have been. I ended up having to totally redo that part of the yard and started over with another seed from Pennington and the grass finally grew as it should have in the first place. I would not recommend this product because it does not grow anywhere as it states. I waste money on 2 big bags of this for nothing and lost 3 weeks of using my yard. Do not use.

We followed directions but not have any grass grow to speak of. We used Scotts lawn soil and fertilizer. We had at least 4 inches of soil and used Turf Builder starter per the directions. (The label says that type can be used when planting new grass) Scotts products are usually pretty dependable but this time EZ Seed fizzled...

I initially planned to sod the area, but saw the EZ Seed at the garden center and decided to try it. I have tried patch products before that did not work. I applied EZ Seed and saw grass sprouts within 2 weeks, It is now 4 weeks since I poured EZ Seed on the area and I have grass about 2" tall. I have told several family members and neighbors about my experience with EZ Seed and they are trying it. Thank you for a product that works!
