Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Very impressed with the coverage and high yield.
I needed to till my entire yard last fall and was too late to seed anything but a winter grass and this fit the bill. 2 bags of this seed covered a large area in my backyard. I watched it grow for about three weeks and it turned a barren waste land into a field of Irish green that lasted all winter long here in Memphis, TN. It is still green and happy, but will die soon due to the heat we experience here in the summer, but erosion control was my goal and this performed AWESOME!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by greenthicklawn Great seed!
All I did was throw this seed down on a short cut very weedy lawn. It came right up very fast and almost every seed germinated. You can't really see from these sunny pics but the grass is actually a dark green color and thin leafed. If you have good soil and water frequently this grass will do you very good. Highly recommend this seed!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by grod good seed, fine blade requires more seed to get a nice dense lawn
a decent grass seed and I appreciate the free shipping so thanks home depot on that. What i do notice is that versus a kentucky bluegrass lawn is that you need to seed a little heavier to get a nice dense lawn because of the finer blade structure on ryegrass. Also the first season I noticed once the lawn was established it would yellow out a bit more then the neighbors and the spots that grew faster would be very green. When the grass was a few inches tall it was green and the spots the grew slower was more yellow until it got taller. When i kept it cut at a height i like wasn't as green as i hoped. I think this is because it was a new lawn and the roots weren't real deep yet to keep the grass moist enough during dryer periods. I am on the second season now so we will see. Check out the attached photo and you can see it is much more yellow then the neighbors kentucky lawn. This seed is suppose to be a very dark green genetically and a tolerate a lower mowing height then bluegrass so we will see. If it greens up this year and stays green i'll be happy. If it doesn't i'll be real disappointed. You can also see in the photo that i could use more seed to get a more dense lawn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ss Great grass seed
This is the second purchase of this product. The first, several years ago when I cleared the 'woods' in my back yard and I planted grass- it looks like a golf course fairway through trees. This purchase, although more than I needed but it didn't come in smaller lots, is used to re-seed areas of my grandchildrens pool and overseeding thin areas throughout the yard. As of this writing, grass has already grown (and a mowing occured). This product by far out performs anything previously purchased.
Areas seeded are prepped, seeded and watered. Within two weeks is when I noticed growth.
Great product, suburb northwest of Chicago, Il

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Metallica Excellent
This was my first attempt with anything to do with the lawn besides mowing. After some quick homework I decided to give this overseeding thing a shot. After two weeks the grass began to come up. This is a beautiful prolific green grass. I had two problems, one was some run off so I had to reseed that area, and apparently birds like to eat the seeds. My only complaint would be that you have to order this product online, and it is not available for pickup in the store. Home Depot claims they ship this for "free," but nothing is free and it is quite obvious they bury the price of shipping in the cost of the bag. Nonetheless, this is an excellent product and well worth the cost.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gerard143 Outstanding Grass Seed! Fast growth and super dense and nice to walk barefoot in
I did a ton of research before order my grass seed. Kentucky bluegrass is very dominant in my area. However I believe the ryegrass is actually a better overall grass. It holds up to abuse, grows super fast and has a very nice blade.
Barenbrug Pinnacle II ranks awesome in the national grass competitions. The grass has an incredible amount of actual seed and basically zero weed seed. No fillers just pure seed.
The grass took about a 10 days to establish and I honestly cannot believe it grew as the conditions for growth were horrible. I tried doing 1.3 acres all at once with no water available. I was trying to water it from a neighbors house which had awful pressure. I just couldn't keep it wet. So the seed dried out which I thought would kill it all but this stuff is tough. I let nature take its toll and we had some serious rain on day. It washed some of my seed into low spots so I have to reseed some areas but that isn't the seeds fault. The seed grew like crazy despite the conditions. Impressive.
The grass itself is outstanding. Such a nice grass but I recommend you aren't stingy with the seed. I found the dense areas are the areas will the grass really stands out. I am going to spread some more seed to get the entire lawn super dense. It is such a fine blade grass which I feel requires a bit more seed but the results are so worth it. Incredible turf life grass. Feels awesome under your feet.
Can't recommend this stuff enough. My lawn blows the neighbors away. This stuff is the bomb! Buy it now!
