I am sure everyone would like to know the percentages. Any ideas?

This was on clearance last season for $4 along with the 10lb Scott's grass seed for $5.

Never tried the Schmidt one as I sold it this season for $25.

Edit: Schultz not Schmidt.

IIRC Schmidt is also sold at Dollarama. Ok, just found the bag I got from Dollarama. It is Schmidt all-purpose coated grass seed 300g at$3.00/bag (creeping red fescue, ryegrass, and kentucky bluegrass no percentages). Dollarama also sells Schmidt seed and feed (IIRC 2-5-2 NPK) but not sure of the price. Probably $4.00/bag and 400g. I've had good results from the Dollarama grass seed but it all boils down to how you prepare the lawn and keep it moist. Without keeping the lawn moist all the time any brands grass seed will die. If you use more soil then it can hold more moisture in. If you use less soil then you'll have to water more often (sometimes supply/demand out of soil or car breaks/etc use what you have).

My method which I've seen good results on over the years is 1. Mow lawn as short as possible. 2. Apply grass seed. 3. Add peat moss (holds moisture) 4. Add soil mix (topsoil/peat moss DIY mix at 2 part topsoil : 1 part peat moss or use triple mix/peatmoss again with 2:1) on top of the peat moss you already added. 5. Keep moist. The reason for #3 is so that layer of seperate peat moss closest to the seeds stays moist longer. The top soil with extra peat moss helps add more moisture retention.

I keep the rainmaker/hose outside the whole time but just move the hose/rainmaker every couple days till the grass has been germinated. I don't go the 1" soil thing due to cost of the soil so I estimate I have approx 1/3 inch of soil. Time of year also affects how much water you will use. Early spring seeding you use less water but cold/cooler for longer germination. Late spring/early summer you use more water but warmer temps for better germination. In early spring I water around 10:00-11:00 and around 15:00-17:00 but stop the watering a couple hours before sundown. If it gets really hot then I add 1-2 times more a day. You can get a programmable water timer or manual dial water timer or RFDer it and turn the outdoor tap on/off inside your home. When you turn the water on you want it to water for at least 10mins (I do 15mins) then turn off the water.

Very similar to the price that costco has the Scotts this week.
3.8kg for $19.99 ($5 discount from regular $24.9 9 price).

pic compliments of the weekly Costco thread by Ju Leon.

Contains a special blend of three of the best turf-type grass seed: Perennial Ryegrass, Creeping Red Fescue, and Kentucky Bluegrass. But does not give any percentages.

Reviews are all over the place for all brands of grass seed. And they seem to vary from one year to the other.

Tip for great grass once you’ve fixed it... mow at a high setting. Your lawn will look awesome, provided you did all the other steps well. A healthy lawn will require less watering and crowd out weeds so they can’t grow.

Take out the dandelions with a weeder.
It is easy to take out the weeds and fill the holes left with new grass seeds.

Anyone know if we can buy this in Ontario right now with the restrictions in place?

I thought it was better to spread out the soil, add seeds, and then rake the soil again to mix it up with the seeds.
Any comments on this?
