[Costco] Scotts Turf Builder Tough Custom Grass Seed 4 pack

$15 per bag is a pretty good deal. I think last year, it was available for $16 per bag after a coupon and the thread was pretty popular.

50% Tall Fescue, 30% Kentucky Bluegrass, and 20% Fine Fescue


Worth noting this upcoming sale below

If it doesn't germinate or you're not happy with it... how do you return it to Costco? :-)

No time machine here, but 25 kg of CIL coated seed (2338471‌) was $100 at Costco back in fall. At nearly 3X the price, is this stuff that much better?

Take back the empty bag and say you weren't happy with it.

I bought the CIL coated seeds... they grew very well. I had a large area of total weeds and no grass. I dug entire thing up, and used those CIL coated seeds and the entire area grew back. However due to the mixture, only 1/3 will grow back this year in the spring, so I am trying to see how it will look. Will need to reseed the area anyways.

Will 100% of these grow back next year? I would rather not be reseeding every year

It says 30% Kentucky Bluegrass, isn't this the only seed that grows back every year?

I think you may be confusing some information. I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure Fescue Grasses grow back each spring, but if it dies (say due to under watering) and leaves a patch of dead grass, the surrounding Fescue grass won't fill it in. Kentucky Blue Grass on the other hand naturally spreads into dead patches.

I need something that will help kill the weeds. Is there a solution for that? Buy this and buy some weed killer?

New home owner here. Looking at removing all the bushes and dead stuff in a backyard and making it straight grass for my kids.

If we dig it all up, do we just plant seed like this or we should purchase sod? ... Roll it out over the dirt?

Reviews on both costco.ca and homedepot.ca are not great. Anyone have any experience with this mix or other recommendations?

Sod is more expensive, but I think will produce better results than seeding from scratch, most of the time. If the area is small, I would seed it and see what happens. If it's your entire backyard, maybe price out the cost to prep the soil and lay sod and decide what price works better for you (seed vs sod). I believe having sod installed will run you somewhere between $1-$2/sf - I would probably hire out sod installation if you've never done it before, it's easy but also easy to mess up.

I'm new to grass too, but based on my reading last year sod would be the way to start. Getting a nice even lawn with only seed sounded like it would take a long time. With sod, I guess your kids would have access to play on it sooner. But as this is my first full year with grass, I'm no expert.

Need some advice.. I want to buy some grass seeds for overseeding & repair few patches but how do I find out what type I currently have so that it matches the existing lawn?

Last year I bought the Vigoro Sun & Shade Lawn seed mix, pack says it contains Kentucky Bluegrass, Creeping Red Fescue, Intermediate Ryegrass and Perennial Ryegrass (I cannot find percentage for each on the packaging). Grass from the seeds looks different, much longer than rest of the lawn and could be easily differentiated. I bought the Sun & shade mix because my front lawn gets quite a bit of sun while side and part of back gets close to none.

When is everyone overseeding in the spring? I heard that when the night lows and days are both in the double digits?

I overseeded in the fall and had great results and growth but never sure about the right time during the sping with the temps.

cool season grasses have better results overseeding in fall vs spring.

I think the theory is that if your grass is strong it will help to choke out the weeds. I would suggest the weed and feed products as well as seeding but maybe somebody with more experience can chime in
