I really wasn't sure what to expect after reading all of the reviews. I followed the directions exactly. Very thin layer and bag covered exactly what was listed on the bag. I started out by raking all of the area were I planned to spread the EZ Seed. I would estimate 50% of my back yard was either dead or missing. I have a large male dog and suspect both urine damage and grub damage were the culprit. I am guilty of neglecting the lawn in the few years I've lived in this house. After clearing the area, I waited for it to rain that evening. In the morning I raked the area again since the soil was soft - roughing up about 1/4". I spread the EZ Seed per instructions on the bag - thin enough to see bare dirt though the mix. After spreading a thin layer I watered the area lightly, let it dry and watered again. I noticed that a good portion of the seed had come to the surface. I raked everything around and watered it again. After settling over night I raked it around again and watered lightly. This was to make sure the seed was mixed well into the soil and mix. We had a full week of rain with little to no sun. After that week I watered three times a day - morning, lunch and right after work. Just enough to keep it wet. It has been four weeks since spreading the EZ Seed and I can no longer see bare dirt in my backyard. The new grass is about 2" right now. I continue to lightly water three times a day since we haven't had any good rain. As skeptical as I was initially about this product I am surprised how well it looks and has filled in. I did luck out and catch a 50% off sale at Lowes so I bought the 20lb bag. Knowing that it works I would feel comfortable purchasing this product at street price. The biggest advice I would give is to spread it thin and keep it wet. Water!

I bought this product thinking it would be simple and easy to use. Instead, (I have arthritis), it took me 15 minutes to find a way to pry open the "easy open" lid. Imagine my surprise, when I now see a black plastic piece inside and a small white "cover" under that. NO instruction on what to do next. Should I try to break the black plastic piece so I can get to the white seal underneath? It appears to be welded in place, so I started poking at the white seal. Again, NO instruction, no arrow, no poke here. I finally got a small wedge of an opening, and after using a knife, scissors, and finally a screwdriver to poke it into the container was able to actually see the product. It took forever to spread since the white plastic kept resurfacing and getting in the way of the opening for the product. Never again. PS - nothing on your website about how to open either.

    I prepared the area to be reseeded as per instructions. After 2 weeks there was only a 20% germination at most. I again prepared the area even using Scotts top soil. After 17 days there was zero germination. The area was prepared correctly and watered as it needed. In the fall I will go to plan B.

        I used this product and was vary disappointed. Totally cleaned out the both areas I was planting before hand, Even had a soil test done before putting product down. Put product down following all directions and watering a few times a day for weeks and had almost perfect growing tempatures the whole time. Just to get vary little grass growth maybe 30-40 percent coverage ended up having to reseed with a different brand. Total waste of my time.

                  I purchased a 3.75# canister of the EZ Grow tall fescue. The container said it could be used on up to 85 Sq. ft, so I cut that in about half and applied the entire canister. I'd loosened the soil and raked in some manure about 4 months before, and had watered it good several times. I raked furrows in the surface, applied the seed with a Scott's spreader, then covered the seed by using the back of the rake at 90 degrees from the furrows. I watered the area by hand twice a day for 2 months. About one sq. foot of grass came up. Over the course of the later summer and so far this spring, perhaps another sq. foot has come up. I could consider this product a total waste of time, effort, and money, and would absolutely never recommend it.

                        I received this product as sample to test last fall. It was to late to provide honest feedback because temps were already freezing at night. I planted it in a shaded spot that we have had a hard time getting grass to grow. Since it was so late in the season I over seeded the area after loosening the soil an 1" deep. Planted per package instructions and water accordingly. I was surprised to see that the seed germinated and was filling in nicely. Then it snowed and snowed. I figured that it was done. To my pleasant surprise this spring it filled the bare area with a deep rich green grass even though our temperature has been 10 degrees below normal and our rainfall is a record setting 21.09" when our yearly norm is 11". I highly recommend this grass.

                                        I have always had trouble with grass seed. I do not always remember to water as much as new seedlings need. This was great as it reminded me visually when the seed needs water. I thought the brown is good as it doesn't stand out but blends in. Not as much seed as I thought would be in the batch but it looks like every seed took so I guess it is a better ratio of what I usually get!! Would recommend to everyone as I used in sunny and shady areas with success in both sides

Grass began to sprout in several weeks without a trace of any weeds. It survived the Winter and is now lush and beautiful ready to be cut. You can always expect greatt results with Scott's products. I have been using their products for over 30 years.

                                                              I got this product a little late in the season but planted some in a difficult to grow area.

                                                                            I get a 5' x 2' bare spot on my front lawn every summer caused by the sun's reflection from one of my large windows. The grass gets burned up and by early fall there is just a patch of compact dirt. I have irrigation but the magnifying effect of the window is just too much for the grass to handle. I usually use Scotts Turfbuilder Lawn Soil and Scotts Pacific Northwest Mix for repairs and it does it great job. This year however I was offered a chance to try out Scotts EZ Seed Patch & Repair through the Root program. It was very easy to use and all I did was rough up the bare patch with a metal rake and sprinkle the Scotts EZ Seed Patch & Repair over the area. I kept the area lightly watered and in about 10 days little green spikes were starting to poke through the absorbent growing material. Within 3 weeks the grass was long enough to mow and after 3 mowings the patch had completely blended into the existing grass. The quality of the grass is very nice and the whole process required minimal effort.

It seem as though I only got filler and mulch. For the money, this was extremely frustrating. All other patches looked like my picture or grew no grass at all! I would have been better off buying a cheaper bag of seed and covering with grass clippings.

It was easy to do and all I had to do was water the patches after I sprinkled the grass seed and fertilizer combo. The small container that was not heavy made it easy to walk around my lawn and use the product as needed.

I had numerous spots in my yard that I simply could not get grass to grow for some reason. After following the very easy to understand instructions I have great grass in those locations. In fact these locations look so great, lush, full, and green that I simply wish I could do my whole yard with this. I wish I would had taken before and after photos to share.
