Do not use weed control products until your lawn has been established (mowed at least 4 times). If you already applied weed control, please see those package directions on when to plant grass seed. Finally, be sure to apply Scotts® Lawn Food products every 8 weeks throughout the season to help maintain your thick, green lawn.

    I am very satisfied with the performance of this product. After installing a paver walkway, the perimeter edge was bare soil/sand with a cement lip underneath. I applied this product along with soil conditioner on one section of walkway that is in full sun so I could verify its performance before applying it to the entire perimeter of the walkway. Application and maintenance are typical of what you expect with grass seeds and the directions on the packaging are clear and easy to follow. By the end of week 2, the grass was thriving, healthy and lush. I had a heavy downpour that washed away a section of the seed and fertilizer before it started to take take root and I reseeded that section when I applied the product to the remainder of the perimeter. This product required minimal effort for application and maintenance and the end result is a healthy looking grass that grew rapidly, exceeding my expectations.

    This product works great. I would suggest getting Scott’s weed and feed hose attachment bottle after this to address the unwanted growth. My lawn is thicker than it has ever been! We have pictures to prove it!

    Scotts rapid grass is awesome this in the first time I’ve used this product and it’s amazing. We have a big bald spot in our lawn and use rapid grass on it and it’s been about 2 weeks and have already started see grass growing.

    My backyard has a lot of bare spots from last summer being hot and my child and dog playing in the grass so I had a lot of spots to fill and I wanted to help fill in the grass areas we did have to make the lawn really fluffy and soft to play in and this stuff worked fantastically. For starts we did have some random frost after I threw it down and was super worried that it wouldn’t grow and while it took a bit longer because of that the seed still grew in and really filled in my bare areas well while adding so much more to my existing grass making my back yard really thick and green. There are still a few spot that the grass is still growing in from the seeds but the fact that it is still growing despite having a few cold days is pretty amazing.

    I received this when there was 12 inches of snow, and couldn’t wait to use it! Now that Spring has sprung, I tried it! It is very rapid, I was surprised! It is very easy to apply, and directions are right on! First picture is the ferns we replaced, second picture is the prepared ground, and the third picture is after 18 days! I am very impressed and would recommend this seed to anyone! Next project is a Fairy Ring I will dig up, replace the soil and use the rest of the bag! Can’t wait to start, probably right after Spring Break!

    After adding sprinklers for better coverage in a corner that has suffered for years, I used Rapid Grass seed with a turf-seed soil mix in the work area and on ‘patchy’ areas nearby. Photos are 23 days apart. I had the area roped off and constantly irrigated and only once very delicately cut some of the more established grass with a string trimmer. So staying out of the area, irrigation, and seed-to soil contact and time is the best recipe. I believe the fertilizer with this seed was very beneficial as well and a good bonus. Weather high was in 70’s week 1, mid 60’s week 2, then 80’s week 3. The photos speak for themselves here!

    Early spring we noticed our front yard had more weeds coming up than previous years. We spent several days pulling weeds from our lawn and we were left with large bare spots of just dirt. Yikes!
    We decided to plant grass seed and see what happened! We tilled the areas and added additional topsoil to the bare areas. We spread the Rapid Grass seed very heavily, in hopes that at least some of it would grow. I love that this package not only included grass seed but a fertilizer as well. This combo seemed like the best way to get our grass started. We have been watering the seeded areas twice a day. Keeping the soil moist is definitely key to the grass growing success! And keeping the birds and squirrels away from the grass seed!
    I was impressed that after 5 days, we were able to see tiny little sprouts coming up! That seemed too quick as most people say it takes 2-3 weeks before seeing any signs of new grass. After 2 weeks of watering, we have most of our bare spots filled in with grass blades about 2 inches!
    I am super impressed with Scotts Rapid Grass Tall Fescue Mix! We will be using this on our backyard project this week as well! Looking forward to having a summer with a beautiful grass for our family to enjoy!

    Turf Builder Rapid Grass has a combination of tall fescue grass seed and fertilizer, providing an easy to use mix that takes out the guesswork. My lawn has some large bare spots and this is exactly what I needed to fill in those spots and make it look great. Directions are straightforward. Make sure you water daily. In about a week, I started to get grass sprouting and in about 2 to 2.5 weeks, the coverage looked really good. I like this product and had a successful experience.

    Overall this is a great product and I’m extremely pleased! I first used this on 05/20/21 here in Southern Maryland, I was slow to get started earlier in the spring unfortunately. We had a small patch in our front yard that I tested so I prepped by weeding, leveling, and fertilizing with Milorganite, and watered deeply. I spread a thin layer of Scott’s Humus and Manure, vs their lawn soil because it was less expensive and I already had it on hand for my garden beds. I spread the seeds by hand, threw another thin layer of humus and manure, watered, then covered with burlap vs hay or seed blankets, again, because I already had it on hand. Watered at least 3x a day, and within 3 days, grass sprouted. After 7 days, we had a beautiful new lawn. The first picture is after 4 days of sprouting. Fast forward to 06/28/21, we added extra pavers to our backyard and had a patch of nothingness in our backyard so my husband decided to add grass seeds, not knowing all the prep involved. At this point, it’s hot as Hades with no prospect of rain. I couldn’t just let them go completely to waste, so I at least added some more humus and manure to the top and tried to remove as much weeds as possible. I covered again with some burlap, watered at least 3x a day and prayed to Lord baby Jesus for the best. July 3, I just about gave up because I didn’t see results as quickly as the first time, figuring it was just too darn hot and dry, but on 07/03/21 after two days of surprise intermittent rain, remarkably, there were signs of life and I couldn’t have been more happy! The last pictures are were we are currently rly, 9 days in of the backyard.

    The reason for my “but….” is that, despite how much I love this product and will continue to use in the future as well as recommend to others, you gotta realize this is a cold weather grass and plant accordingly. Fall is the best time and patience is truly the key here. I plan on redoing our front and backyard lawn come fall with this grass and I’m giddy with excitement to see the stunning results! Btw… this was my first experiences EVER growing grass. If it were truly up to me, I would get rid of it all together and get artificial turn installed because grass is just too much maintenance for my taste… however, I’m glad Scott’s made this as easy as possible for me and I’m very grateful!

    Our yard has several spots that are bare still from new construction two years ago. So we buy a bag or two here and there to get those spots covered in grass. I like the rapid grass because I know that it will grow every time I use it. If you use it in the early spring when it is still a bit cold it will take longer to come up, however when it is staying at least in the 50’s at night, then it takes two weeks or less to get the grass growing and it does come through nice and thick once it starts growing and maturing. This grass seed will get the bare spots covered and the yard looking great.

    Worked really well and I now have the start to a lush green lawn. Grass seed was laid over well prepared dirt, but the dirt was by no means rich or well fertilized. All I did was water well and Scotts Rapid Grass did not disappoint!

  12. CbDarnell

    I followed the instructions and I watered it for a week, 15 minutes a day on a dust to dawn timer. Went down to check to see if anything started to produce. Nothing at all, I’m going with Sod Grass pieces. I wasted $63 on this bag and still have majority of the bag left, because I wanted to test it out first in one spot. 1st picture is what I performed and 2nd picture, no grass started to produce at all.

    I am new to treating tall Fescue as I previously lived in Florida and had St. Augustine grass. The Scotts® Turf Builder® Rapid Grass Tall Fescue Mix made it full proof for me to improve my grass and fill in a lot dead space. I watered twice daily for approximately 3 weeks and see pictures of results. This product was easy to use and the instructions are detailed. I highly recommended this product!

  14. Lisa H

    I’ve had great results with this product. I have four dogs that are constantly burning the grass with urine. Rapid Grass is the best product to get my grass looking green and perfect again without having to wait forever. With proper watering, I had new grass popping up within a couple of weeks. Definitely will use again and find it’s a great value for those of us who are impatient!

    I had a bare spot in my yard from a water slide for my kids I needed to repair. I used this stuff and it’s worked great. I do get plenty of sun and I live in the Midwest. It came up pretty fast with frequent watering. I love not having a bare spot anymore!

  16. Mark

    It’s been over 4 weeks, much improvement still have a few problems areas which I have always had. We have a dog and she is hard on the grass especially in the winter and spring time. Overall, I would recommend this product.

  17. RobM

    I planted this seed in Scotts lawn soil, covered it and watered daily with my automatic sprinkler. Warm weather. Couldn’t be better conditions. And nothing. No sprouts or anything. This has never happened to me before. I would return it for a refund but collecting planted grass seed is really hard to do.

  18. Marych

    Mainly used Scott’s Turf Builder Rapid Grass to help fill in some bare spots in my yard this spring. The yard is fairly large and has both sun and shade areas throughout. I waited to actually review to give it time to fully grow in. Honestly it works very well. I followed all of the instructions carefully for planting and made sure to water properly daily (if it hadn’t rained). Started seeing results in about two weeks time. I’m very pleased in both sun and shade areas of my lawn. The true test will be to see if the new fescue grass holds up in the heat of the summer months. Seems as though that’s my problem time.

  19. Greesgrass

    Grass came up in my large bare spots within 10 days. I did water it twice a day as instructed. It’s continuing to grow in thick and filling all my spots. I also over seeded the st Augustine that was already there and I’m seeing major improvements.

  20. LongWill

    Planted 2 small sections, covered with some garden soil. Grass came up in about 5 days. Very good results from this product
