How to Use


  • Prep the area where you want to grow grass by removing any dead grass and loosening hard soil to help the tiny seedlings root.
  • Apply Bad Spot!™ evenly so the area is mostly covered, but you can still see the soil. (Use half as much for thin areas.) Only apply the recommended amount so seedlings have enough space to get to water and nutrients. Seeds germinate best when temps during the day are between 60° and 80° F.
  • Water deeply and thoroughly right after you apply. Gently water the area until Bad Spot!™ is completely absorbed (this may take several minutes). Avoid pooling water. When Bad Spot!™ begins to turn light brown, it's time to water again. Keep kids, pets, and lawn mowers off newly planted seedlings until the grass is 3 inches high, so seedlings have the best chance to thrive.
