just used this stuff this past weekend... it seems to till need watered about dail, even though it's been cool, no action so far, but it doesn't seem much of it is gone from birds or rodents... if you have a small area this could be worth it.

If it was far more live seed, critters would've gotten to it - even if top netting was used. It's basically throwing away money.

The 20lbs is 50% off as well - $27.49. Unfortunately it says recommended planting time is early spring or fall and recommended planting temp is 61-70, I'd have to hold on to it a few months.

you can definately see the seed content, and its not mostly seed. theres a brown powdery component to it that helps expand and cover the area and hide the seed as well. the reviews are positive, and if it doesn't work i know i can let scotts know and they will refund my dollars

the powdery substance is to preserve the seed form so it isn't rotted before you plant it. that exact process limits the germination value to a crippled level. it's a marketing ripoff and good reviews are from 'incentive-based' reviewers, bought and paid for.

increasing swings in climate patterns have made the resodding business lucrative. it isn't rocket science, and in the long run, its more affordable to resod yourself.

I have used this in multiple areas of my yard and it takes about a month to be completely green and covered. It does work, I have used two different bags bought months apart and both have grown and patched what they needed to.

read the label. it's supposed to start growing within a week. the grass you grew was an effect from starving the soil with this product, so the surrounding grass fills in the deficiency as well as it can.

but that is an even more expensive and time consuming process that has been easily supplanted by your HD's and Lowes that sell sod cheap. and they're wisely banking on increasing weather polarity as well. so go 'ahead' and give them more money. caveat emptor.

Just curious, what's a reasonable price for sod? I bought an estate sale house, and the backyard went to hell. I tilled the soil and was planning on seeding, but if sod is cheap, seems like a simpler solution.

the key to any grass growing from seed is watering

Googling...


Usually the cost per square foot is lower for a large, flat area that can be installed mechanically, averaging 15 to 24 cents or between $6,500 to $10,500 an acre (43,560 square feet).

It's not that cheap. Couple of grand for the sod and a similar amount for the labor(it's a fair amount if work. You're better off with what you're doing and then just watering it religiously. Or build one of these systems:
