  1. Funny how they always show these useless, hand-powered tools gliding ever so easily on heavily prepared soil so it seems to work so effortlessly. How does this thing work on hard, clay like, rocky desert soil?

  2. You would be surprised on how easy it is to penetrate hard soil, the ergonomic handle / foot pad applies force straight down and your leg has a lot more strength than your upper arms, which is what is used with straight shafted tools, see how to use a Grass Stitcher on Youtube but don't take my word for it, check out the Amazon reviews. BTW there is no prepared soil in any videos.

  3. That's one of the main benefits of the Grass Stitcher is that you leave the dead grass for seed protection, it then decomposes and serves as soil food. You must have planted perennial rye grass seed, which germinates in 5 – 7 days

  4. Lemme put it to you this way: if you tap the soil here, it sounds like there is something hollow buried in the ground (like a treasure chest) …but there isn't. A pick may chip only approx 2-3 inches into the ground. Quality shovels get bent. This is how hard it gets. All it needs to get any harder is rocks. Nice, hard, quality granite!

  5. Compared to what? If you add up the costs of any other method, The Grass Stitcher is much less expensive in that you need no additional amendments and you have the tool for all future lawn repairs, so it pays for itself after the first use. Also the quality of the tool is exceptional, its made for professional use, so it will last a life time. Plus there is a money back guarantee and out over 10,000 sold, I don't think we had more than a dozen returned.

  6. I have one area of grass were seed will not grow. I've tried everything. I even have a full blown irrigation system. I tried the method in the video, and nothing. Could it just be bad soil?

  7. well there's nothing to compare it to really. maybe the garden weasel/cultivator type tools which are cheaper and can potentially be used for this same purpose. i will commend the ingenious design of the grass stitcher. being able to apply pressure using your foot instead of having to bend over and use the weight of your upper body must make it much easier to use.

  8. Thank you, the design of the handle makes it much easier on the body plus the unique wheels create an extra wide perforation surrounded by loose soil, so when you broadcast the seed and water you get the needed soil / seed contact. Those other cultivators look similar in that they have pointy wheels but they do not do the same job.

  9. There are a number of factors that could be to blame for seeding failure.
    1) you must have soil / seed contact – if you used the Grass Stitcher correctly that should not be an issue.
    2) Watering is critical, seed must not dry out during the germination process (7 – 21 days depending on seed type) this requires watering at least once a day maybe twice.
    3) the correct amount of seed applied
    If those requirements are met, it should germinate, then to have a sustainable lawn will depend on the soil.

  10. I gotta say, I purchased the grass stitcher last fall online, and it may be a bit pricey, but it's money well spent. I've always had trouble getting the seed to germinate, but with the stitcher, I've had no problems at all. I even let a few guys at work borrow it last year, and all of them asked me to borrow it again this year.

  11. Hi Podxman
    That's pretty hot for planting grass seed, there is a good chance that the seed has dried out between watering. With that kind of heat it would need watering twice a day. The better choice is to seed when the weather conditions are more favorable in the fall. Plus seeding this late will mean you will be competing with the summer weeds.

  12. Quick question. How do I grow get crabgrass. I love how bright it looks

  13. Use Black Kow mushroom compost, spread about a 1/2 inch over your seed. I guarantee your grass seed will germinate and thrive. This is an exceptional compost. Make sure to plant when the temps are above 55 but below 80. Keep moist but not soggy.

  14. like the way you shake that seed out of your hand! What are you doing this afternoon??

  15. did any one else notice the time laps puting the middle at 20 days and then the final result at 15 days hmm…… wounder wwhich one is wrong.

  16. Does the Grass Stitcher work on sod. My wife and I have different opinions.She thinks it won't work ( on sod) I think it would. We could use your help thanks

  21. Bushido…lmfao! Do what you want dude!! Maybe google a good time to plant grass before you come on the internet acting like your top shit about planting grass!! Nice comeback! How old are you 13…using "your mom" shit!! I heard that shit when i was in 5th grade…fucktard!!

  22. hate it when people say you don't need to remove dead grass, they say it rots away……..dead grass on lawns is a breeding ground for mold, bugs,moss and suchlike, as for rotting down …all stuff needs nitrogen to assist it to rot so be best to have the nitrogen for the benefit of the lawn.

  23. si ma il feltro é tutto rimasta sul prato..! anzi! coi buchi é stato tutto spinto sotto terra..! ci voleva lo scarificatore!
    l'arieggiatore inventato da lei,va bene sul prato in salute!
    complimenti per l'invenzione!

  24. I love this mower! Works great⌯⌯⌯t.co/ycXz48eNOn   and I actually want to go cut my grass. I also love that I’m helping the environment at the same time! It is a bit of a work out if you let your grass go for a couple of weeks. But if you stay on top of it and cut it once a week it’s a breeze 🙂
