One tip that might help. When the ground is moist, rake up the bare spot to get something for the seeds to stick to. Sow seed liberally. Then walk on the seed to push it into the dirt you raked up. You can lightly rake adjacent dirt over the seed if you'd like, just not too much. If possible mow your lawn in a way that shoots the clippings over top of the grass you sowed. This will hold moisture during days with no rain.

Soak it after covering with the clippings and check frequently to make sure it stays wet.

I had germination in 5 days doing this with a two-year-old bag of seed last week.

Just buy good seed on sale and bag of potting mix and apply seed topped with potting mix on bare spots and you'll have great grass in a few weeks. This is the biggest waste of money and the manufacturers know it, it's all fillers.

The product works if you follow directions. However, I find that this stuff is mostly filler and thus a bit expensive vs regular seeds.

It is definitely more expensive and definitely mostly filler, but it works. I tried planting seed that I bought at HD, and it did nothing. I mixed the seed with this stuff, put it down, and the seed associated with this product sprouted -- the seed I mixed in did nothing.

I wound up returning the separate seed for my money back because it definitely seemed dead. I bought a new bag, different brand, but I haven't tried it yet. I plan to buy more of this mix, and I'll probably try to mix them again to improve the concentration of the grass.

I have used this with relatively good success so I just bought a bag to fill in the patchy areas. I do use regular seeds for overseeding as it is more cost effective.

I've never had success with this stuff. Always comes in bare and patchy. However normal grass seed always comes in full and healthy. I think this stuff is just overpriced newspaper shreads.

Don't buy this if you've already applied pre-emergent this season. Otherwise, you're wasting your money.

If you're just throwing seed on the bare ground, without tilling up the dirt some to loosen it up and give the seed something to dig into when it sprouts, nothing will grow. Birds will just eat it or wind will blow it away. Best method is to chop at the dirt a bit to create some loose soil, seed that, cover with peat moss and water daily for about 10 days or until it sprouts.

word of advice, don't ever waste your money on expensive seed. just get the type you want for as cheap as you can. I've bought a few expensive seed bags from so called reputable companies, Blue tag, label, blah blah blah....total BS crap! Weeds, weeds weeds, lucky if it seeds like usual. just know you're in for a fight, especially if you live in a hot dry area.
