Very disappointed in this product. Applied as instructed to fresh topsoil during last week in September (70 degree temps) and watered once daily in the morning or evening. Did not have one blade of grass sprout after more than 2 weeks. Will not purchase this product again.

No, I do not recommend this product.

We are sorry for the disappointment you have experienced with the results of your recent seeding effort. We would like to offer a few tips that may be helpful to you in future seeding endeavors. As with any seed product, Scotts PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix requires both continuous moisture and warm soil temperatures. When one of these conditions is missing, poor germination is the result. If PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix is applied in early spring, when temperatures and moisture are inconsistent, seed development will be sparse.

Be sure to spread the PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix evenly over the prepared area. If this product is allowed to remain in clumps, the seed will not germinate. Check the package for proper coverage; this will give you an idea as to how thick the PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix should be placed. Generally, PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix is spread in a layer no thicker than 1/2 inch. Lastly, make sure that no weed control or weed prevention product has been used in the area, as those products will also prevent or inhibit germination. When used on newly germinated lawns, herbicides will kill off the new grass. I hope these extra tips will be helpful.

We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience please contact us to see what can be done. You may visit our contact page by clicking on the following link

We had some dead spots in our lawn. One my 1st attempt to fix it, I basically cleaned it up and threw down some seed. That did not work. I found Patch Master is our local home store and purchased it. When I looked on line for tips, I came across some reviews. Most were negative. So, I read the instructions and followed. It took lots of watering and about 8 days and I'm seeing new growth. I am very satisfied with this product.

Conssome seed settled on bottom of bag

Took out 2 old large silver maple trees and was left with a large diameter in length to fill, which took a large bag of PatchMaster for each downed tree area. Was skeptical at first, being in the spring I had tried EZ seed (with no results). This time I invested in an oscillating sprinkler (instead of just using a hose) and left it water for 30-45 minutes twice a day. Grass appeared in 6-7 days. Once the grass was filled in, I watered once a day. Very pleased with product, think the thing I did wrong in spring was hit it with a hose for a few minutes - the sprinkler was the answer for me.. Would use again.

Very poor product. I followed all the procedures given on the package with very poor results. The surface was prepared as directed, product was spread as directed (leaving no clumps) and it was kept moist every day. It has been 4 weeks now and, yes, grass did come up but it is so sparse that you really have to look closely to see it. It appears that there isn't enough actual seed in the mixture. It is not an improvement to the lawn at all because what you see now is the gray color from the product.
ProsGood Directions
ConsDidn't work as expected
No, I do not recommend this product.

At one time this was a great product. This product is now so poorly made. The filler is made from newspaper that I can read full words from the shredding. My home shredder does a better job. The newspaper also does not allow the water to soak through. After multiple days of watering, I found that water did not get all the way through the paper. The product also use to be green colored. Now it is uncolored, the patchmaster makes the yard look worse then with the dead spots. Horrible product, makes me consider everyone one of their products to be a poor quality like this one.

Two separate attempts with zero success. Very disappointing. I carefully followed directions, especifically watering. Only some of the seed types germinate but nothing survives. A total waste of time and money. I think it needs more perennial rye to get some quicker germination. This product is a failure and certainly does nothing to promote the Scotts brand image.

I had quite a few bare spots to fix in my lawn this past spring, and as I always use Scotts fertilizers and like the results, I tried Patch Master. I also had some of another product left--the Pennington patch with the same type of ingredients--the seed, and fertilizer and mulch. This was the perfect test to see what worked better. I used the Scotts in one area of the yard and the Penningtons in another--both the same sun exposure.
I followed the instructions completely and there was no doubt about it--the Penningtons came up faster and stronger. The big disappointment was that the Scotts barely even came up at all.
Just this week I did some fall patch care on the lawn and used Penningtons. The Scotts was just not good at all.

Last summer all of the grass in my boulevard was overtaken by weeds, and died over the winter. In late April, I planted some of these bad boys. Several weeks later, grass was sprouting and has thrived over the summer. I love it and will be buying more next spring!

When I saw the product on the shelf, I thought, what a great idea for taking care of Mother Earth while creating a nice lawn. I followed the directions to a T, including preparing the area (lots of small spots needing seeding) with some premium dirt. I'm disappointed to say that only a few of the seeds germinated in any of the spots. I tried applying the product in varying depths to see what the impact might be. I'm certainly not a lawn care expert, but the shredded paper appeared to more smother the seeds rather than moistening them. A switch to the EZ seed, product, and poof, instant lawn. Needless to say, I'm disappointed in a product that comes from an company that I've learned to trust to supply premium lawn care products.
ConsDidn't work as expected, great marketing idea that i hope can be improved
No, I do not recommend this product.

I bought this product to help cover some bare spots in the yard. It certainly did that, the news print "mulch" still has not dissolved completely, which is good since the seed never sprouted.
My biggest mistake was tossing the receipt and packaging since I usually am quite happy with the Scott's products that I've purchased in the past.

I recently purchased PatchMaster to re-seed an area where we removed a tree. This is the 3rd time that I have used this product and I have always had great results. The previous instances were for similar reasons. I had removed a shrub on one occasion and had a mound of gravel in my yard for another project on the other. I just followed the directions on the package and within 4-5 days, the grass starts coming up as advertised. It's been a few years since the other times that I have used the product, but you can still tell that the grass in those PatchMaster areas is some of the thickest, lushest grass in my whole yard.

"Several months ago" I used the PatchMaster product. Not one blade of grass ever came up! It was as if I didn't use anything. I completely followed all of the step by step directions and faithfully watered everyday. I called Scotts and they apologized and suggested EZ seed. It's been about another month since I've seeded and watered and still nothing!! The summer is almost over and I still have bald spots in those same areas. I feel the PatchMaster somehow suffocated those areas and now nothing will grow there. My lawn looks terrible.
Very frustrated and disappointed

A lot of variables come into play when planting grass seed. Several things need to go right. Make sure the soil is loose & pulverized, add a ton of rich topsoil, and water the fertilizer like crazy every day. Also, make sure this is the right grass seed for your region & plant it at the right time of year. I think it's a bluegrass mix, so cool spring or cool fall would be ideal. The bottom line is to do your homework & make sure you use the right product for your lawn, because every lawn is not equal.

I purchased the product at Home Depot and followed the instructions carefully. It appeared during application of the product that there was no grass seed in the bag. I applied the product and followed instructions. After three weeks, there was not one blade of grass to be seen which seems to support that there was no seed in the mix. I am out $30 and had to re do the sections planted with a product from another company.

Check the package for proper coverage; this will give you an idea as to how thick the PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix should be placed. Generally, PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix is spread in a layer no thicker than 1/2 inch. Lastly, make sure that no weed control or weed prevention product has been used in the area, as those products will also prevent or inhibit germination. When used on newly germinated lawns, herbicides will kill off the new grass. I hope these extra tips will be helpful.

Followed the directions to the T. Watered twice a day, made sure it was spread evenly, made sure was in contact with the soil, made sure soil was soil was warm enough. Not a single blade of grass came up. Sad I wasted my money on this product.
ConsDidn't work as expected
No, I do not recommend this product.

We are sorry for the disappointment you have experienced with the results of your recent seeding effort. I'd like to offer a few tips that may be helpful to you in future seeding endeavors. As with any seed product, Scotts PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix requires both continuous moisture and warm soil temperatures. When one of these conditions is missing, poor germination is the result. If PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix is applied in early spring, when temperatures and moisture are inconsistent, seed development will be sparse.

Be sure to spread the PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix evenly over the prepared area. If this product is allowed to remain in clumps, the seed will not germinate. Check the package for proper coverage; this will give you an idea as to how thick the PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix should be placed. Generally, PatchMaster Sun & Shade Mix is spread in a layer no thicker than 1/2 inch.

I used this product last year with great results. I read and followed the directions, but also patted the product to the greound. I looked at some of the pictures and it looks like maybe the "fluff" is still there. I figured that the seed needed to be in contact with the soil for the root to be able to take hold. I would agree that the directions may need to be rewritten to ensure consistent positive results, but the product is basically the same stuff that the hydroseeders spray out of their equipment, just in a dry form.
ProsQuality, Easy to Use, Effective
Consdirections could be more descriptive.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Had just move into our new house and had a big Norwood Maple that shaded my whole yard. The grass was thin and patchy. We had the tree trimmed up and back which gave us full sun on our lawn so we decided to heavy seed .that didn't work . Birds eating the seed and the sun burning the seed plus I didn't water as needed. My neighbor a landscaper told me to feed my lawn then wait till fall to seed . So I went out and bought scotts weed and feed and my lawn green up and was weed free with in 3 weeks than we bought scotts patch master and put this product down and followed the directions and in about 10 days I had a beautiful lawn better and greener then my neighbors. We used this product late spri g and watered 2x a day in morning and early afternoon.
ProsEasy to Use
Consnone
Yes, I recommend this product.
