Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Tall Fescue Mix, 18242 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 194.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I recently had to correct some drainage issues in front of my house. I used the grass seed as directed and the results were as great. The seed germinated in about 9 days and after about 3 weeks the grass is doing fine. I got a late start on this project but with another couple weeks of nice weather it should be fine for next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Just a little raking before applying and keep it wet. Takes really quickly for a nice lush repair. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Seed There are many types of grass seed. Tall Fescue grass seed is defined by grass that grows rapidly during spring and fall. Tall Fescue is well adapted to sunny or partially shady areas, therefore making it a very good all around grass seed. Scotts grass seed is a superior brand. If you prepare the soil correctly and use Scotts quality seed you will reap the benefits. If you do it right the first time, you won't have to do it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It grows! We used this seed in some areas that had died out this summer. We now have baby grass growing. We also used it to over-seed other areas and have noticed young grass growing there too. I believe as with any seed, some seed will not take (or birds will eat it first?), but all in all we are happy with this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff Not much to say about grass seed, but this works rather well. Takes about 1 week to start seeing growth, and like any other seed, you must water several times a day to keep moist. Good product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features Although the product has good features it did not perform well for me. I have an area that is not in full shade but has not done well even with sun/shade grasses. The ground seems to be dead to grow things including weeds. This product sprouted but came up extremely thin considering the amount of seed I put down. The ground is not hard but could be a little less compact. NOTHING I have planted in this one area has done any good. It obviously is not the product but the place. Grass is growing everywhere else. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seeds are quite large The seeds are covered with something blue in color and are probably 10 to 20 times the size of an uncoated grass seed. I did not feel like this seed germinated any easier than regular seed. Because the seed is so much larger there is obviously fewer seeds in the same size bag as regular grass seed. If you are covering small areas or using it for spot repair it is fine but if you have a large area or are overseeding I would stick with regular grass seed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick to sprout! This seed germinated quickly and has good germination percentage. No need to seed heavily! My backyard bare spots will now get a good start prior to winter arriving. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the price I have found over the years that products for your lawn are quite varied. I've tried all the big box stores brands of seed, fertilizers and other products and rarely if at all get good results. Name brand products like Scotts have always produced well in my yard. I used this product to overseed some patchy areas in my yard with excellent results. We'll see how it winters. To me it's worth the price. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked better than expected Was doubtful that when I got this product that it would work during the summer months. It was a really hot summer for our area and the rest of my lawn was starting to go dormant. I had an area that needed to be seeded, so I just followed the directions and about 10 days later grass started growing. I did also buy Scott's lawn soil which is recommended for when you seed your lawn. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seed germinated quickly due to ideal weather conditions Application instructions were easy to follow. Germination rate followed the time scale on bag. Grasslings are now sprouting. My only concern: Humid and hot dry conditions in the southern NJ area occur in July and August, so actually testing the durability of this seed will not occur until next summer 2017. Heat, drought and disease are prevalent here and I look forward to seeing if this product holds up over the winter into next summer. So far so good, but stay tuned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sprout success Having great success with this product. Put don about 2 weeks ago. Very good success with the seeds sprouting. You have to follow directions and make sure the seeds stay moist. I have mine with a timer. Waters every 5 hours or so. Will be thick and lush in 2 more weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I applied this seed mix as an over seed product. Applied very easy and within 2 weeks the new seed took hold and is doing very well so far. Applied in September in Southwest Michigan. Recommend to others! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice looking grass Grass came up nice, uniform and lush green. Can be a bit messy if you are spreading small patches by hand. Recommend wearing latex gloves as the blue coating can be messy on the hands. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The watersmart coating helped to germinate the grass seed quicker. I had two problem areas to deal with. Bare spots and thin grass coverage. I applied this product to both areas at the same time. I loosened the soil on bare areas and then applied the grass seed. With over seeding I applied the product as per directions on bag. Watering was done according to directions on bag. I saw growth in about 8-10 days. Grass came up very nice and full, with lush green color. Product was easy to use and I will use it again to repair bare spots in my lawn. Try it you will like it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It looks like it will work I can't wait to see if it as drought resistant as they say. It was a very hot summer and my lawn took a beating. I planted the seed and it came in nicely. Can't wait to see how it grows next year. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too early for final review We have had some very unusual weather here in Michigan this summer and fall. The small sample in one area of seeding shows a very small blade of grass The heavy rain which we have had lately has hurt the seed from taking hold. I intend to reseed this coming week. Please resend in about two weeks. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast growing grass seed Less than two weeks ago I attacked several bare spots that cropped up in my lawn this year. As evidenced by the photo, I have gotten great results in a short period of time. Luckily, the SE portion of Michigan has gotten its fair share of rain in the past week so I have not had to water separately. The seed still has a ways to go, but I am very pleased by what has taken hold already in less than two weeks. This is a great product - I will definitely continue to use Scotts' grass seed in the future. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent growth, and germination I planted this Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Tall Fescue Mix around a retaining wall that I had to repair. The germination time was very quick, 5 days, and you could see the growth. Minimum amount of watering too. Excellent product I will buy again , thanks Scotts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product yielded very good results. The product was planted in loose, fertilized soil and germinated in a short time with daily water. The grass came in thick and strong. I recommend this product highly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have new grass! I applied the seed to my lawn two weeks ago. Watered every day for two weeks and I have grass popping up everywhere. I am very pleased. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
