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):

    The grass seed came up in about a week and filled in fairly quick considering I did this in late October. The mulch did help it stay moist. The biggest issue I had was that it says covers up to 85 sq ft and I'm not sure it even covered 60 sq ft. Given the cost of this product and the amount that it covered, it isn't the greatest value. But if you just have small patches to fill in and need it to fill in quickly, this will work for you.

        Even though it wasn't the perfect time of year to plant this Sun and Shade seed, we put some under a large plant that had blank spots underneath that we wanted to fill in with grass. It starting growing right away.

                          Ive watched the seed germinate into a lush green lawn in a matter of weeks. The coloring of the grass is a rich green tone similar to marion blue grass seed from decades ago. very pleased with the results and would highly recommend this seed to everyone. I love it

                                      Can only give this a good rating based on previous uses. I received this current product well past the growing season and was informed to wait to plant it by Scott's, however I keep getting emails wanting me to rate the product so there it is.

                                            I had to pull up the dead grass and added a thin layer of EZ SEED. I followed the directions but it took much longer to begin growing. Area was weed free and received constant sun. Most of the patches began growing within the week A couple of the patches took a month but over all I would strongly recommend the product. The new patches blended in nicely with the existing lawn. A key point is I do NOT fertilize the areas EZ SEEDED for six months.

                                                  Finally, a product that says it works and actually does. Grass grows sooner than advertised and blends in well with existing grass.

                                                          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.

                                                                              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.

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.

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.

                                                                                                I did not use the product yet. I received a e-mail request from Scotts not to plant until the spring. The e-mailed stated that I would receive a reminder from Scotts in the spring to use the product and then write a review. Did I get it wrong?
