Types of Scotts Grass Seed

Our range of Scotts grass products includes a variety of blends to match the climate and your preferences. Use this list to determine which type of grass seed may be best for your home:

  • Bermuda: Bermuda grass is recommended for warm climates, as it can withstand scorching sun and high temperatures. It grows best in the spring and summer months and is a bit more sensitive to cold temperatures than other varieties. This grass species grows quickly and spreads aggressively, so it’s often recommended for adding volume to sparse lawns.
  • Tall Fescue: For Northern climates, tall fescue is often the grass seed of choice. It grows best in cool weather, although it can tolerate some heat. If planted in warmer climates, you’ll find that tall fescue grows best during the cool part of spring and in fall.
  • Mixed Seed: As its name suggests, mixed grass seed contains multiple types of grass seed in one bag. This results in a hardy lawn that’s more resistant to the elements, parasites and diseases. It also increases the chances of successful growth and is true to nature, as it’s common to see different grass species growing together.
  • Sun and Shade: Scotts Sun and Shade is a type of mixed grass seed that thrives in both sunny and shady conditions. It’s great for lawns that have some full-sun areas and some shaded areas, and it spreads to fill in bare patches and sparse areas. This type of seed can endure extreme ranges in temperature, making it a good choice for most any climate.
  • Seed with Turf Builder: Scotts Lawn Builder, or Turf Builder, is grass seed that’s coated with a special technology to help grow thicker, greener grass. The innovative coating allows the grass seeds to absorb twice as much water as uncoated grass seed and delivers essential nutrients to help nourish the seed and accelerate growth. Scotts has various seed types infused with Turf Builder to help you create a beautiful front lawn or backyard.
  • Seed with Mulch and Fertilizer: Another multipurpose Scotts grass product, these seeds also include mulch and fertilizer for a convenient all-in-one solution for challenging areas. The mixture holds six times the water as regular seed and safeguards the seedlings against disease. Continuous-release lawn food nourishes the seed to promote healthy growth, even in bare or damaged areas.

Abstract

We conducted a long-term investigation to ascertain effects on honey bee, Apis mellifera L., colonies during and after exposure to flowering canola, Brassica napus variety Hyola 420, grown from clothianidin-treated seed. Colonies were placed in the middle of 1-ha clothianidin seed-treated or control canola fields for 3 wk during bloom, and thereafter they were moved to a fall apiary. There were four treated and four control fields, and four colonies per field, giving 32 colonies total. Bee mortality, worker longevity, and brood development were regularly assessed in each colony for 130 d from initial exposure to canola. Samples of honey, beeswax, pollen, and nectar were regularly collected for 130 d, and the samples were analyzed for clothianidin residues by using high-performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry detection. Overall, no differences in bee mortality, worker longevity, or brood development occurred between control and treatment groups throughout the study. Weight gains of and honey yields from colonies in treated fields were not significantly different from those in control fields. Although clothianidin residues were detected in honey, nectar, and pollen from colonies in clothianidin-treated fields, maximum concentrations detected were 8- to 22-fold below the reported no observable adverse effects concentration. Clothianidin residues were not detected in any beeswax sample. Assessment of overwintered colonies in spring found no differences in those originally exposed to treated or control canola. The results show that honey bee colonies will, in the long-term, be unaffected by exposure to clothianidin seed-treated canola.
