Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ringodan61 Product is as advertised Sod Quality
Tilled and removed old sod; raked area (should have added topsoil as I have clay) put seed down heavier than instructed and used starter fertilizer and used lawn roller on top seed. Put straw down (this did create weeds) and I watered with hose by hand daily and seed came up as advertised. Watering important to keep damp. I put this in in late Aug. 2012 and on day before Thanksgiving was able to mow down to 1/2" with McLain reel mower(10 blade) and yard looked beautiful. I did over seed entire yard and spots which needed more care. I also fertilized late Oct 2012 to ensure good Spring startup. The grass did thicken and spread and now after being in for 2 years lawn is best in neighborhood. I added pelletized lime 50 LBS and 2 bags of Ironite in Jun 2014 and it really brought grass to life; if I could do over I would have used Lime and Ironite in beginning as I mentioned My yard is clay and needed nutrition. You just need some patients with Bluegrass but it will look great because this is a single type of seed and not blended. Home Depot is best price and it shipped from Oregon to Ohio in a week. You can save 50% off price vs online sales from other sellers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thomas Awesome grass seed
my germination was outstanding using a slit seeder to get good contact w. soil. I would say basically about 100% germination sucess over a 2 acre lawn. Have fertilized heavily since the grass became established, looking forward to sweet lawn next year. Sprayed tenacity (mesotrione) the day prior to planting to avoid pressure from competative weeds and that also has helped tremendously.

I paid to have my lawn double aerated. We seeded my lawn. One month later, only about 10% of the seeds have germinated. Whereas, my neighbor used the cheap PA. blend seeds from the hardware store, $80.00, had 70% germination. I paid $259.00. I still have bald patches. I will re-aerate and seed in the Spring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrGM Nice Germination
I overseeded my lawn that had plenty of thin spots. The seeds germinated nicely despite some dryness and early fall frost for a few nights. I did not water as the area is rather large (call it lazyness). At this time, it is too early to judge how good this grass will do in summer heat and its resistance against deseases, grubs, and weeds.
