    I've planted more grass in my lifetime than I care to recall (commercial landscaping for 8 years). Stuff like this is usually a gimick imo. If you have half way decent soil, especially this time of year, you don't need this junk. If your soil sucks the grass will germinate but won't develop a strong root system and burn up in the summer. For 6 bucks a bag it may be ok to patch a spot, but honestly you'd still be overspending.

    You are right. So what do you recommend for my sandy soil with a top crust?
