Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sticks and wood pieces with a dirt coating I can't believe I paid a premium price for this product. Thought I would buy this over the $1 bags I often get, but turns out those $1 bags were much higher quality. These Scotts bags I got were nothing but wood and sticks with a dirt coating. I would never consider this topsoil for growing grass (I spent 1 1/2 years in a soil science lab - U. of Florida). It will take years for the sticks and wood to decay, tying up nitrogen in the process. Also, the large volume of larger size particulates appear big enough to block grass from growing (in my experience). I think i will have to scrape up all the Scotts and grass seed I put down and try something else. What a waste of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked great, see no problems. I had bought a cheaper no name brand of soil to start the season and my grass seed took forever to take. I ended up buying the Scotts - actually the economy size 42.5L (which for some reason is not on the website), It was the best value for money (costs the same as the 30: but get almost double). Anyway I put this soil down (with Vigoro seed) and my grass is growing in nicely. The patches that I did on the front lawn are much greener than the other ones I used the other brands with. I ended up topping up the other soil I bought with this one, and seed took within a week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Full of bark and other junk I bought this to use as top dressing before overseeding my lawn. What a waste! It's FULL of giant bark pieces and shredded plastic bits. Don't waste your money - you'd get the same "quality" from any other cheap soil mix or bag of manure.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too much "organic matter" Bought 10 56L bags to top dress, over seed and repair bare spots in my lawn. I typically purchase from a local landscape company as I can see the soil quality, but with delivery fees costing more than the product I thought it would be easier to use bagged soil. The first bag I opened looked more like mulch than soil, more than 25% of the bag was sticks, stones and plastic particles. Some bags were better than others, but the majority of the bags include these items. I see organic matter as an ingredient, but stones and plastic are not organic, and the size of the sticks will take years to decay - truthfully they'll end up raked up before they ever decay in my lawn. I can't express my serious disappointment at the quality of this soil out of the bag. Time will tell if it truly improves seed germination and lawn growth. Hopefully, it does so that I can get the sticks and stones raked up and disposed of sooner rather than later. Right now my lawn looks like a mess of sticks and stones. Should be fun with the first mow!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Full of Twigs & Sticks I don't normally write reviews and read the other bad reviews that said it was full of twigs and sticks and was skeptical. I bought myself 6 bags and dragged them home and these bags are filled with lots of twigs and sticks. It was hard push everything around with a rake. I didn't want to drag the bags back for a refund so I ended up using all the bags regretfully. Home Depot should really stop selling junk like this just so Scotts gets their QA together. I guess I'll see how the grass grows in a week for three....I wouldnt buy this again...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money This "lawnsoil" is terrible for your lawn. All the bags each year I try them contain big sticks, plastic plant markers and so on. Grass seed cannot grow in these conditions. Again, what a waste of money. Best to get it from a landscape company

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the Price I got this Lawn soil to fill in spots in my lawn, but when I opened all the 10 bags, I found lots of twigs and other debris in all of the 10 bags. Not at all worth the price. I though since I am getting an expensive bag, I will get pure top soil for my lawn, but instead it was the opposite. Earlier in the season, I had got a cheaper top soil bag, and that was much cleaner and better than this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware Don't Waste Money on this Bought six bags to help my grass, opened them up, dumped them over my lawn and as I was raking the soil out there was twigs, all over the place. What a disappointment. Why are there twigs in this top soil? Such filler should not be acceptable in this produce. Moreover after using this lawn soil now i have more weeds in my lawn then ever before. What a waste of Money........

Can I top dress my lawn with this enriched lawn soil and then overseed?

Asked by: dyzh
Yes, but do it in cool season like Fall or Spring. No over seeding in Summer.

Scotts Turf Builder Enriched Topsoil smells like menthol. Will it kill the clovers that I just planted?

Asked by: David
Thank you for your question regarding Scotts Turf Builder Enriched Lawn Soil. The smell is from an overgrowth naturally occurring, harmless bacteria that occur when the soil stays too wet in the bag.

When will Scotts stop issuing apologies for pawning off mulch as a premium topsoil instead of doing something about it? Have your retailers get rid of the stuff or given away as mulch. It's not just the money, you guys, it's giving people big headaches!

There are two kinds of compost in Home depot, this one is 28.3 L per pack, the other 42.5L, prices are much different. I just wonder what the difference between these two?  

Asked by: Gary
These products are the same just different sizes.
