They still have a bunch left at the rexdale location this morning. I just picked up 2.

Thee sign says $24, but the cashier in the gardening section knew they were $20 and punched them in as such.

Thanks for the headsup OP, I resodded my entire backyard a month and a bit ago and everything looks awesome except for some parts where the raccoons kept digging for grubs. I've been waiting for turf builder to go on sale since it's so simple to use for spot fixing (but expensive).

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)
I've used both - the 2x one sprouted quite quick, but seems to be much more expensive. I've used Ez seed a few seasons ago and that grass is still doing well.

If you cut your grass high this time of year, then overseed thin (not patchy ie. 2 hands side by side or larger) I have found it helps with the seeds losing less moisture as the taller blades of grass shade the seedlings. That's just my experience. My front lawn is thick enough to lose a paperclip in. My backyard however needs work. It is like 60/40 grass/weeds so will be hand pulling slowly as I keep reseeding to thicken the lawn as I have an ant problem, thinning of grass, patchy areas, and crab grass to contend to. If you keep your lawn healthy you should see a lot of earth worms on it at night. I was reading something like 7 earthworms per square foot if a healthy lawn.

Once you get the grass going (this is my experience in the front lawn here) I only apply a thin amount of fertilizer then add extra organic material like crushed egg shells, tea leaves from tea bags, coffee grinds, and compost when I have some and I find the worms love it and I do next to no work other then mowing the lawn. Just save all your egg shells by your stove top. As they dry use something like...well I use a potato masher to crush the egg shells down then when I get a big tall carnation hot chocolate container full of shells I then scatter them around the lawn. Normally it takes a few months to fill up a carnation tall container. You can also go to your local McD's/Star*ucks/Timmies or local java joint and ask for thier used grinds. Take home, lay out a tarp or clear garbage bag then lay the grinds down on a hot sunny day. Should be dry within the hour with 3-4 stirrings inbetween. Gentlely sprinkle it around the lawn/garden and let the worms to the rest.

By keeping the worms happy they do a lot of the hardwork for you. Such as the nightcrawlers can burrow down to 2 meters (6ft) when it is really dry and when they come up to the surface to eat the grass clippings thier castings (their body waste) helps fertilize the lawn. A earthworm can eat thier own body weight in food per day. IIRC what I read was earth worms can produce like 600lbs of fertilizer per 400sq ft I think. They do the hardwork of aerating (IIRC costs like $50 to rent the machine and if you get someone to do it is something like $100 last I checked IIRC) the lawn saving you that cost and using less fertilizer as well.

I only bought one container of Scott's to try. IMHO pricey. For that price you can get about 2-3 bags vigro grass seed.

IIRC was about 9 containers left when I left around 17:30ish yesterday.

Woodbine and 7? I didn't see any there. The shelf with the sign was empty and they only had the other sizes.

Still some left in Kanata Home Depot, maybe 20 boxes. I picked up a couple! Sweet price considering I paid full price from Costco this spring. I can't believe how well this stuff works!!

Marked at $20 at the Markham Kirkham drive location. Plenty left. Seems like they're clearing them out.
