    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

    Good news. Bad news.

    By ROK

    Comments about Scotts® 10lb Northern Blend Turf Builder Ez Seed Sun & Shade Grass Seed (17418):

    I have always used Scotts products on my lawn. During the winter of 2013-2014 we had quite a bit of grass that died over the winter. We decided to use Scotts EZ Seed to fill in where the grass had died. When the grass finally started to grow in the spring of 2014 (we live in Wyoming so it took awhile to get get warm enough for the grass to start growing) it came in great. Nice and thick and green. Last summer my lawn looked the best that it has ever looked. That is the good news. That bad news is that all the grass that we planted last spring died this past winter. It was only the grass that we planted in the spring that died. The grass that survived the previous winter also survived this past winter. I am enclosing several photos, starting with what the lawn looked like in the summer of 2013 and after the grass had died in 2014. Then there are several photos that show how good the grass came in during the spring and summer of 2014 and then finally a photo of what the lawn looks like today (spring 2015). Maybe you could offer some advice and what went wrong. We are deciding on how to approach the lawn this year. Try seeding it again or maybe try laying sod.

        We flip houses, and I always use Scotts products to revive the lawns quickly (and have no complaints), but I had never used the EZ seed. I created two test spots for this product before I applied it all over; one spot in my front yard (in a sunny location), and one in the back (in a shady location). I raked all loose grass or leftover/dead leaves from fall, sprinkled a very small amount of soil, about 1 cup in each 1 sqft. area, applied the grass seed, and watered. We did get rain the day after I seeded, and I then watered daily for 3 days. On day 5, I had grass!! And today, which is day 10, my entire patches are covered in grass shoots. I imagine in a few more days, my bare test spots will be completely covered in grass!!

            This grew very well, took about seven to ten days to start sprouting. One thing I will say is the top soil you use definitely matters. I was filling in an 80sqft section on one side of my front walk. I had been doing some work in the back and used half of a bag of Miracle Grow garden top soil which was left over, and then some cheap stuff I had planned to use to fill in some other areas out back. The spots I used the Miracle Grow top soil did great, came in lush and full. The spots I didn't use it, didn't. Blades here and there but not looking good. I knew I was going to have an issue pretty early on, because the cheap top soil would become dry and nearly rock hard while the Miracle Grow seemed to retain moisture better and would never end up like concrete. Pretty sure it's going to be tough for baby sprouts to get any roots into that stuff. So yeah, I would recommend testing in a small area with good top soil of your choice and you won't have any issues. Had I only used the cheap stuff I would have probably been giving a bad review, not realizing I all but made it impossible for anything to grow.

                This product is very simple to use. You must water!! And that's one of the best features. It tells you when to water! I have been trying to grow grass in my small fenced back yard for 3 years. I used the weed and feed in the late spring, and was impressed. So I decided to give the E Z SEED a try. I have grass growing in Georgia clay!

                    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!!

                          This is the third time I am trying EZ Seed on a remote shady area in our generally thick lush lawn. The previous 2 times throughout this growing season, I have had limited success in this sparse area and moderate success in small bare spots or last winter's snow mold spots in the Spring. Generally I have more confidence in Scott's Patchmaster products that I have used for over 10 years, and have yet to gain confidence in EZ Seed. With the consistent rain we have had the last 4 days and more predicted I am hoping EZ seed performs this time. I raked in Scott's Soil for seeding, starter fertilizer and so looking for sprigs any day now.

                            Sorry, but I got nothing out of this product. I followed the instructions exactly, and nothing ever came of it, even after multiple tries. I figured because this product is so expensive, I must have done something wrong. I only wish I would have saved the receipts so that I could have used the money-back guarantee.

                                                    I used Scotts Turf Builder EZ Seed on a bare spot in my front yard and it worked like a miracle. It was so easy to use. Just rake, pour and water. And in a few weeks I had a lush green lawn where there was nothing. Thanks Scotts for helping make my lawn look great.

                                                          I didn't even have to put the seed down as thick as suggested and it grew very dense. Great product. I used it for bare spots in yard.

When I purchased the product, I even weighed the seed to see how close it came to what was listed on the container and found that Scott's put in almost an extra full pound of seed "above" what was listed on the plastic container. Thanks Scotts! I will use this product again in the future.

I have prepared the soil, watered religiously, but grass just doesn't want to grow. My lawn (tall fescue) was beautiful before we got our pup about 5 months ago. Any suggestions what I can do, except sod and water after she pees each time???

I more or less wasted $60.00 on something that was guaranteed to grow. I couldn't get my money back because I mis-placed the receipt. I really like Scott products but I just can't give this product a good review. I am not sure if I just got a bad bag, but I was hoping for a beautiful front lawn and then it never produced. Now I may have to try it again when I can afford another 40 lb bag. Sorry Scotts.

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.
