Customer Questions & Answers

Is this seed 100% seed or coated with something, meaning that it is not 50 lbs of seed?

Many (most?) grass seed these days is coated with a product that is supposed to stimulate growth. However this means that the total weight is not all seed. I want to know if this baravado is all seed, or a coated product.

50 lb. Barvado Tall Fescue Grass Seed is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mushrooms only where this seed is planted! I planted these seeds per the instructions 2.5 weeks ago and my front yard continues to be filled with mushrooms and brown spots. I planted Walmart Kentucky 31 Tall Fescue in my backyard and Southern States Red Tall Fescue on the side of my home. These two did well but this brand of seeds have grown nothing well but mushrooms. I do not have mushrooms where the other seeds were planted. Don't be fooled by the fact that they are supposed to be the best because they are not. I will be asking Home Depot for a refund on the seeds this week. Every time it rains, I have to pull up huge mushrooms that keeps growing in my yard. This is a new problem that I did not have before using these seeds. It is very frustrating to have to continue digging up mushrooms. I know mushrooms are a fungus and I want to get rid of it because it will kill your yard. It looks like I will have to reseed over these seeds. Mushrooms grow fast but very little grass has grown as you can observe in the photo. This is a yard that was dethatched-raked-dethatched-rake again before seeding and ensured the seeds were watered properly. My back and side yards are beautiful but the file size is too large to upload.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed It is almost impossible to find pure seed anymore. We had a total loss in our backyard so we dethatched and gave it a try. Ours took about about 8 days to sprout but it appears that most has sprouted. Just wish Home Depot would carry in stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend this grass seed Highly recommend Barvado Tall Fescue Grass Seed. It germinated in just five days. The grass has finely textured leaves and a nice green color. Fertilized the lawn four weeks after germination and the seedlings are filling in the lawn nicely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not hot growing seed this seed is not tolerant of the north texas heat. In March & April yard was great looking dark green and thick. By mid May yard was drying up, and by June had died.had hose on timer to water every 2 hours to keep cool and moist and it still dried up and died. Would probably do good way up north BUT not in the south

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Germinated in Mid November I thought I was too late in the year but I raked out the lawn & seeded it anyway. The overnight temps were in the mid 40s to low 50s so it took a while longer before I could see the new sprouts, about 10 days, but the seeds are germinating now. There aren't as many birds around this time of year so that was a plus for seeding late.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice grass with a short thin blade and beautiful deep green color. Purchased this seed to supplement my Bermuda Grass that had become very thin and weedy. I was also looking for something that would tolerate shade and have a simmaler blade structure as the Bermuda. I have had the seeds down now for about 3 weeks and am still watering daily to promote germination. I did not do much preperation before sowing and it has been very dry here so I can't complain about that. I would recomend good prep and plenty of wheat straw to cover the sown seeds. The grass did come up quickly where I did do this. The look of the grass is great and it does blend in well with the Bermuda.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new love I was little down because how long process and shipping and handling went but all well worth it when package came on time and un torn and boxed with tracking number. 2012 Sept. 20 temperature around 81 to 73 high I mow tiller and tiled the yard dept of at less 2 to 3 inch deep for good root system. I lay first layer grass seed while the soil is course and porous and rake seed in while leveling ground and remove rocks and debris. I put second layer seed to even it out and rake it in real good about half inch . opening higher rate seed spread for the final layer lightly rake in. I would use the hay from dead grass i just tiller but u got watch out for those weed the could grown or buy some for about straw to help keep moisture or lay thin layer of top soil on top .Keeping the ground moist not flood it. i water 3 time daily. I water more in afternoon cent it hotter. then morning or evening when u have about 2 hour of sunlight left.I use fertilizer in third day and water it in so in wont harm the seed it dose even if the package say it didn't. I just being caution. In about 4 to 5 day the grass started to sprouted when u look close to the ground. It even grow where i step on ground multi-time from turning water on. Surprise me. pretty fast very impress from other brand i had brought and use. in day 8 it look like it full grow but grew 2 inches. The grass color look just same as on the bags. still can wait till it full
