Drought Resistance and Durability:

Planting Made Easy:

Whether starting a new lawn or rejuvenating an existing one, Scotts® Turf Builder® Grass Seed Sun & Shade Mix® is a fantastic choice. For best results, consider sowing in the spring or fall when soil temperatures consistently range between 55°F and 70°F or when air temperatures are between 60°F and 80°F.

For the most successful seeding experience, use a Scotts® spreader to apply the product, following the recommended settings provided on the label. This ensures even distribution for an optimal outcome.

Root-Building Nutrition:

What sets this grass seed mix apart is its Root-Building Nutrition formula. It combines seed, fertilizer, and soil improver to promote deep root establishment. Strong roots are the foundation of a thick, green lawn. With this mix, your lawn will flourish from the roots up.


Each 2.4 lb. bag of Scotts® Turf Builder® Grass Seed Sun & Shade Mix® covers a significant area, offering 320 sq. ft. coverage for establishing a new lawn and 960 sq. ft. for overseeding an existing one. This allows you to enhance the beauty and health of your lawn efficiently.

Planting Tips:

For new lawns, prepare the area by raking the soil to a depth of about 2 inches, removing any dead grass or debris. This step ensures proper seed-to-soil contact, fostering successful germination.

When overseeding, mow your lawn at the lowest setting and bag the clippings. Rake to remove debris and dead grass then loosen the soil to facilitate seed-to-soil contact.

After applying the seed using a Scotts® spreader, gently rake the seed into the soil, ensuring it is covered just beneath the soil surface.

Watering for Success:

Proper watering is crucial for seed germination and establishment. Your lawn seed should be watered daily to keep the soil consistently moist for at least three weeks or until seedlings reach a height of 2 inches.

Additional Tips:

  • Plant this grass seed mix in the spring or fall when soil temperatures consistently range between 60°F and 75°F or when air temperatures are between 65°F and 85°F.
  • Avoid applying if heavy rain is expected.
  • Use the product within the current season after opening.
  • Ensure any product that lands on driveways, sidewalks, or streets is swept back onto your lawn.
  • For optimal results, use fresh products.
