Growing thick, beautiful grass in your lawn can be a challenge. That is why Scotts created a revolutionary seeding mix, the Scotts EZ Seed Sun & Shade, to provide you great results anywhere you want to grow grass. It comes with unique growing material that absorbs water like a sponge and expands to surround and protect the seed so it remains moist, nourished and strong in virtually every condition. EZ Seed is developed to thrive in areas with blistering sun and dense shade. Simply prepare the soil where you want to grow grass, evenly apply the mix, add water, and let it do the work. When the grass turns light brown, that’s the time you add more water again.
The Scotts EZ Seed is a unique blend of Scotts high performance seed, premium continuous release lawn food and Scotts super-absorbent growing material. Growing material absorbs water and expands to keep seed from drying and dying out. The seed is infused with fertilizer to ensure quick establishment of lawn and long term feeding. Water and nourishment help the seeds build stronger roots to survive in dry, sunny, and densely shaded areas. Germination begins when soil temperature is around 55 to 60 degrees and air temperature is at 60 degrees or more. EZ Seed is intended as a patching product to repair bare spots, wear and tear caused by pets or other problems.
For best results, do not use weed control on newly seeded areas and maintain moisture level throughout the germination process until seeds are fully established. While people and pets can reenter the newly seeded area immediately after application, minimizing traffic will give the grass better chances of growth. This revolutionary seed mix holds up 8 times its weight in water. It takes care of the seed for you so you can grow thick, green grass anywhere you want it. It is by far the fastest and effortless way to grow grass in your lawn.
The EZ Seed Sun & Shade Mix by Scotts grows virtually anywhere, even on pavements. It works great in patchy areas of your lawn because it spreads evenly to fill the entire space. Seeds that have been watered thoroughly can survive the hottest summer without needing more water for the next 24 hours. Seedlings start to sprout within 3 days and still stand tall to dogs running around the yard. The product is easy to use, clean to handle and stays where it’s put. EZ Seed is already fertilized so you don’t need to purchase another bag of fertilizer to provide supplemental nutrition. Quality of seed is very good.
Although the Scotts EZ Seed Mix received a 4 star rating in Amazon, there are customers who remained unhappy about the product because it just didn’t work as expected. Some reportedly achieved no growth after using the mix for quite some time. For them, this seed mix is not just expensive but also low in quality compared to other Scotts products. Even if they followed directions to the letter, no grass grew in a nicely prepared lawn area.
As with any kind of seed product, certain conditions must be present to enhance seed growth. The Scotts EZ Seed requires continuous moisture and warm soil temperature for good germination results. It should also be sparsely applied to a depth of around 1/16” or 1/8” over the prepared area. Make sure not to apply weed control on newly seeded areas as this can inhibit germination of the seed. All these conditions must be met for best results. Since lawn conditions are quite different for every customer, not everyone is likely to achieve success. But with the right circumstances, this product is worth the extra dollar. It wouldn’t be an Amazon bestseller for nothing.
