What is actually in the bag is a lot seed. As it says, it is a mix of fescue and bluegrass, which was the combination I wanted for where I live. After routinely watering twice every day for several weeks, I had a truly beautiful lawn. This grass was, quite simply, gorgeous looking. Richly colored, soft under your feet, it was great!
Unfortunately, as I tapered off the constant watering, it slowly began to die back. Patches appeared in several places (not from animal waste or any other factor that I can think of). Within a few weeks, about 1/3 of the area I had planted and it had grown had become bare.
And this is where the difficulty lies in judging this product. Did the grass die back because of environmental factors? Because I used the wrong seed for the climate? Because I stopped watering as much too soon? Or, is it the seeds' fault, being so demanding of water as to be impractical? Not being a garden enthusiast, I honestly can't say.
Overall I am mostly pleased, as the remaining grass does look nice, and I will use this product again once more to try again next spring.
What I did:
1) I aerated the yard by putting many holes in the dirt.
2.) I sprinkled the bag of grass seeds in the wholes and on top of the dirt in my yard. (The soil in my yard was very bad. It was like sand and had no nutritional value.)
3.) I bought a regular bag of potting soil mix from Walmart. (I didn't need manure.) I sprinkled this over the yard because I didn't have any soil in my yard at all.
4.) I watered the grass two times a day everyday for about a month.
After doing all of these steps, the grass grew perfect. I planted the seeds on March 19 and they grew in two weeks.
(Will post pictures soon.)
