From the manufacturer
Not satisfied with your lawn even after you’ve fed it?
That’s because you’re doing HALF the Job. The New American Lawn is a cutting-edge lawn care program that not only feeds the lawn, like every program on the market today, but, unlike all others, Feeds The Soil! That's right, the soil.
Healthy soil is the foundation for all great lawns. Your soil must be free of compaction, possess healthy microbial populations, and have the correct pH or your 'great lawn' journey will not happen. Think about it. Would you plant your annuals and perennials in a poor quality potting soil? Of course not. So why not ensure that your grass is growing in quality soil, too? The New American Lawn makes this happen!
GREAT LAWNS ARE AS EASY AS remembering - U-S-A

I tried numerous grass seeds including those from the bins in the local hardware store and Home Depot and other brands, rye fescue, bluegrass, blends, etc I tried this one on the advice of a landscaper who said it was great, and he was right. It is a mix of several different grass seeds but the thing that is very noticeable is that it sprouts pretty quickly (once in 5 days), grows in evenly and quickly, is resistant to weeds and other grasses, and after a few years it is still going strong.
The square footage estimates on the packaging are pretty optimistic, for example the 3 pound bag says it can cover 1,200 square feet. That is an area equal to a square 35 feet on a side which is equivalent to a small to medium sized front yard. In my experience when newly seeding an area the actual coverage is somewhere around half of that. The seed really works and so you don't have to seed as densely but to think that you can seed 1,200 square feet with 3 pounds of grass seed is not correct.
This seed is relatively expensive but if you have a relatively small spot such as something 5-15 feet on a side and you want to be able to go out and fix it up in one attempt this is the way to go.
As a final note in my experience you can't just go out and throw the seed on the hard ground and expect it to somehow magically burrow into the soil. As desperately as I would love to believe that all I have to do is rip open the bag and throw down some seed, in my experience with the hard clay soil in this area, when I do that, the seed just sits on top of the soil until it eventually dries out or is eaten by birds. The top of the soil has to be disrupted in some way, either by a tiller or shovel or other garden implement. This doesn't actually take a whole lot of time or work but it is tedious so you think it'll take forever. I will go out and literally hack into the soil in a back and forth pattern with a hand-held "ugly tool" or similar to break up the first 0.5-1.0 inches of soil, in preparation for seeding. And then after I seed I put down "tacky straw" to hold the seed in place and keep it moist until it germinates. This in my experience is the only way to get new seed to sprout on the tough clay soils.
However.. having said all that. Now that the seed has been planted... it's coming up great.
