For a sunnier part of my front lawn, I decided to try a 3 lb. bag of Scotts Turf Builder Sun and Shade Grass Seed, which is mainly made up of Kentucky bluegrass. What attracted me to this particular brand was the "New WaterSmart Formula Coating" that promised to keep my grass seed moist even if I missed a day of watering.
I tried to be good about watering my lawn and I waited for the grass to grow. But I wasn't impressed with the results of Scotts Turf Builder Sun and Shade Grass Seed. I had large bare patches where no grass grew at all, and the grass seed that did germinate seemed to have a hard time taking root in the soil. Most of it burned out over the summer even though it rained every other day this year. I later reseeded that entire area early this fall with some generic Kentucky bluegrass seed that I picked up on sale and that's given me a much thicker turf to work with. I don't think I'll be buying Scotts Turf Builder Sun and Shade Grass Seed again. It just wasn't worth the price I paid for it.
