Coated vs uncoated lawn seed
Why/when would you use coated vs uncoated seed? The seed I am looking at is $14.99 per lb coated and $24.99 per lb raw, which is the better value?

I've never had any problem with regular seed IF-

The soil was prepped properly
The seed was applied properly
Mulch was applied properly
It was watered properly.

Just my experience.

Uncoated. More seed for less money. As downunder said... you should have no need for a coating if you prep correctly. If you do not prep correctly the coating is not going to make up for it.
