    I had my patio extended and had to build up a bank of soil to blend in with the existing lawn. I came upon the EZ Seed almost by accident and was sure glad I had. I was able to seed the new area easily with out a hassle. The product is easy to use, clean to handle and stays put when sewn. It requires so much less attention and since it is mulched, it stays where it's put. Since it's already fertilized there's no need to fertilize and no question of how much fertilizer to use. In short, it's an ideal product and not only was I pleased with it, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

    Use of the product is quite easy. Unfortunately, no grass grew. There does not seem to be enough seed in the mixture. My next attempt is to use extra grass seed with the mixture. Hopefully that will work. Please bring back Scotts premium sun & shade mix (in the gold bag). That was an excellent product. "New and improved" is rarely an improvement!

    Thank you, Natalie

        I bought the big 20lb bag, spread it in various spots on my lawn, and it never grew! I followed the instructions as directed and of course watered it regularly. What a waste, I really wish that it worked.

            Applied the seed on September 28 to the side of a sloped hill with sandy poor soil. The seed stayed on the hill and didn't wash away. By October 4 seedlings were popping up! Great product would highly recommend!!

                      Had some dead spots on my lawn from last years drought, put down a good layer of EZ Seed and within a few weeks you could not find the spots. Blended if perfectly with my existing grass and with almost no work.

                              Have a lot of trees and just a little direct sun. Dug out the moss in my back yard and decided to use EZ Seed as a last resort for new grass. After raking in the EZ Seed, just kept it wet and I got a beautiful backyard of green grass.

                                          We used the Turf Builder EZ Seed in the spring and had wonderful results--just about all the seeded areas produced wonderful thick grass. Going to try it after the weather cools down a bit in Sept.

                                            I've used EZ Seed twice and both times the grass grew thick and strong in about a month. I simply followed the directions, including watering it often as the grass was coming up. Couldn't get easier.

                                              Grass very spotty and not much of it. Very expensive, so it's a bad deal all around. Ended up going out and buying Scotts Commercial seed and it is far superior.

                                                      I bought this because I had a few bare spots on my lawn. It shows you when to water to ensure the grass grows as quickly as possible. It covered up my bare spots and my lawn looks much better!

                                                          Don't know why all the negative reviews, but I thin the key to success is really taking care of it especially in the early stages. I live in NY and our summer has not been to hot mostly in the 80'sF daytime, and cool 60'sF to 50'sF at night, so I think this helps. Also my lawn receives both sun and shade. Area in picture remains mostly in shade and gets some sun later in the day. Here is what I did. I had a fairly large bare spot, and 2 smaller ones. I raked out and pulled up dead grass/weeds. Native soil isn't the greatest quality so I purchased some of Scotts lawn soil and mixed it in. Next, I spread the product thoroughly over area and lightly raked it shallowly to the soil. then I spread out some more to top it off. I then watered very very well for the first time, and have been watering around twice daily ever since because I think that is key, keeping it consistently moist and never allowing it to dry out. 7 days later they started to sprout!!! A couple of days later even more!. Later on I decided to spread a light top layer of Scotts lawn soil as a dressing and it seemed to have given it a boost!! Really sprouting and spreading well. Seems well over 80% germination!! I truly believe once established an filled in, a couple of mows, and regular feedings it will flourish and thrive! Also, NO FOOT TRAFFIC ON NEWLY SEEDED areas until established. See my picture I put signs up and roped off the area. Area behind rope was bare to the bone.:) Next I plan on working on the entire lawn which has been plagued by clover, dandelions and crabgrass!! I plan to aerate, use Scotts weed n feed, and then do an over seeding, finally a good feeding in fall before winter. Good luck to all of you out there. This is working out well for me! :)

                                                              Used this multiple times to patch areas of a newly seeded lawn. Mine could have been out of date but it was dead when it hit the soil. No sprouting, growth.. Anything.. Tried clear poly-sheeting to raise the temperature and humidity to no avail. Went back to the old, "good local seed, good soil and peat moss cover method", and everything got back on track. It's a great idea, but I think it needs to be localized more to specific growing zones. Probably something that a local warehouse store could give a rip about..

                                                                  My husband and I have never had much success in growing grass seed. I decided to try ez seed for many ugly patches we had on our large lawn. A miracle - within days we had seed growing! It was so encouraging to see and raised my spirits immensely. I had about given up on our lawn but will now proceed to dig up more patches and use ez seed. Thank you Scotts.

As long as you water it regularly along with lots of sun, you will have green thick pretty grass in no time. I used it near my deck when I had a ramp pulled up and it was just dirt. I put the easy seed down and it filled in with pretty grass. I had tried Pennington and it did NOTHING for my lawn.

I like the way the color turns a different brown. Seemed to work better this year with all the extra rain we got. Just brought more to do fall seeding. Also works better if spread thinly.

This time of year, all grass seed should germinate. I've used EZ Seed before with good results....but not this time for some reason. I love Scott's products and was very disappointed.

It's great for sun-dried areas and patches where your pets have made the lawn brown.

Seed was easy to apply and germenated quickly. Grass came rich and lush, and blended beautifully with existing grass.

I mowed the lawn an wet the lawn rake it, then shook ez seed down an water for only 5 days. An I begun to see the bald spots get grass now my lawn is greener thick with no brown spots. It was so easy with beautiful results. Thank you Scotts

Now it seems like it is much harder. I plan to give it another try next season this time I start from scratch. Clean slate...did out the old weed grass and try the ezseed.

                                                                                                  I used the product to repair an area which is in direct sunlight and gets alot of traffic. Not only did the product work quickly - but the area where the repair to the grass was done still out performs the rest of the lawn. It is thick and deep,rich green. It has been flourishing for almost 2 years now. Great Product!

With all of the seed that was sowed the grass should be very thick but it is spotty. I believe in Scotts seed so I will try a different Scotts seed when I re-seed next month.
