Do you want to have a lawn that has no brown and bare spots? Which product do you choose? The only thing that you can do is look up the product and find people like me that have actually used the product. There are a lot of different types of seeding products and Pennington 1Step Complete Smart Seed is one of them on the market today, so how do you choose which one to buy. The easiest way that I know is to ask the attendant on the floor that stocks the shelves, or find someone that has had some success in repairing their lawns. Ever since we started cutting grass and taking care of our yards several years ago, we have been using some type lawn repair or this particular type repair for the grass and we have never been disappointed with the outcome. Each of these bags are 6 pounds 25 ounces and will cost you about 15 dollars, you can usually find it cheaper if you purchase this in bulk at a warehouse club. I found this bag for just under 15 dollars at Lowe's. I have also seen this on sale at for $9.99. This product is made in the USA in Greenfield Missouri.
