[Home Depot] Scotts Turf Builder (ez seed $20 YMMV - Markham, Woodbine/Hwy 7)

Hi everyone,

Long-time-lurker, first-time-poster. Please excuse any errors in formatting or posting guidelines.

Just got back from the Home Depot in Markham (Woodbine / Hwy 7). The cashier and I were both surprised to find the Scott's Turf Builder (ez seed 6.5kg bucket) came out to $20 each at the register.

The shelf price and online price still show it as $39.87 each, so YMMV.

I've included a photo of my receipt.

Not sure which is better (they seem to be comparable in price at Home Depot), but the coated Turf Builder is $29.97 at Costco (Woodbine/Hwy 7)

If you have good soil this stuff will be fine and grow well. The stuff op posted is mulch, fertilizer and seed in one.

Sorry for the confusion everyone.

Sumrandomguy is correct in identifying the right product.

i-o_o-i, I have also used the product you mentioned. It's good for overseeding the lawn to help thicken it.

The product I'm referring to is ideal for covering up and repairing dead patches where my dog's urine has burned the grass. This product comes with its own growth medium, which makes it more effective (and expensive) than the coated seeds you mentioned.

Just for everyones quick reference the OP's location is at Hwy7/Woodbine. When the OP said Hwy7/Warden I was puzzled as I don't remember thier ever being a Home Depot there. I know there is the No Frills/McDonalds/Shoppers Drugmart and formerly Futureshop there. Was thinking for a minute that maybe HomeDepot opened a smaller location in the Futureshop building but checked the OP's recipet address and it confirms Hwy7/Woodbine.

I guess since op's version has mulch in it then it's not good to use this over existing grass? Never used mulch on grass before.

I've been doing some seeding on a couple of bare patches of lawn in the last few months, using some cheap seed from Canadian Tire and some Scott's seed from Home Depot. The Canadian Tire seed germinated very well everywhere I scattered it. The Scott's stuff, not so much.

Yeah, I normally buy the larger 25lbs bags from Costco for $55, but it looks like the ones in Markham are all out for the season.

But at $20 for 15lbs, this is even better.

@ludhi
If your grass is green and healthy, I wouldn't recommend this product (too expensive). Get some of the grass seeds that are coated with a moisture absorbing layer, and then add a light dressing of black earth over top. That will help to add density to your lawn and minimize the number of weeds that can grow.

If you have patches of dead grass or gaps you'd like filled in, this product is perfect for fixing them. The mulch helps to retain water, allowing the seeds to germinate/establish themselves quicker.

In both cases, be sure to water your lawn deeply and frequently. I find it best to set the sprinkler timer for 4:30am (to avoid soaking 6:00am joggers) and to allow the soil to absorb the water before the sun gets a chance to evaporate it away.

Does that usually work showing a photo of a receipt to price match?
