Product Overview

Sun and Shade North is a mixture of grass that are pick to do the best in both sunny and shady areas in Northern climates. Some of these grasses are very fine-leaf, dense and drought, shade and cold tolerant. Others are picked for their tolerance for high wear, fast establishment, heat and sun. All of these together give you a yard that is able to take the Sun and Shade conditions in this part of the country and still give you a dense dark green lawn.

  • Grows in sunny and shady areas
  • Strong heat and drought resistance
  • Dense low maintenance turf
  • Micro-clover (coated) mixed with the grasses grows around the grass plants and feeds them nitrogen, the nitrogen continues to be released into the soil during the growing season, the nitrogen is therefore available when and where it is needed, for turf, micro-clover is the perfect permanent slow release N-fertilizer
  • Additionally micro-clover is an aggressive species, filling in gaps quickly, it competes well with weeds, thus reducing the need for herbicides, herbicides should even be avoided as they may harm the micro-clover

From the Micro Clover website - Mowing height New lawn: When grass is 5-8 cm (2-3 in) high, cut for the first time. Trim lightly and gradually lower blades to an ideal cutting height of 25 mm (1 in).

3 lb. Sun and Shade North Grass Seed with Micro Clover is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clover & easy to grow. We bought this based on other reviews. My first round of planting this went OK, but I saw what I did wrong and now I'm on my second round and it's going quite well. The main focus is to water the seeds daily two times a day and plant them properly. Once that is done you have a great patch of clover wherever you decide to put it.

The grass doesn't need much water once esrablished. The clover stays low and green. The deer love to eat the clover. We mow about once a month using belly mower on the tractor. We liked it so well last year we just seeded another half acre.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sun & Shade mix I just put this stuff in a week ago (not much germination yet), so this isn't really a 'review'. I know I was annoyed that the composition of the mix is not available, so I will give it here. S&S is roughly 25% each bluegrass, creeping red fescue, and perennial rye, 10% hard fescue, and 3% microclover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Micro clover adds nitrogen to the soil naturally and is drought resistant Came up nicely, would have like to see more clover. Why are Home Depot stores on Long Island, NY not carrying this product. Chemical fertilizers are contaminating our water supply and lawns that not drought resistant are putting a strain it. Please start carrying grass seeds with Micro clover added or even Micro clover alone. Show Home Depot's concern for the environment by displaying the benefits of Micro clover.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Germinating well so far The town had to replace my water-main in mid-may, and my whole front yard was ripped up so I had to re-seed from scratch. I bought this seed because its a micro clover mix, and micro clover supposedly helps make grass more drought tolerant. Its too early yet to see how drought tolerant the grass will be. I seeded the lawn the first weekend of June, and it's the end of June right now, so I'm still in the stage where I'm watering the grass every day to make sure it takes root well. I can say that the seed germinated within a week, and as of right now it's about 2 inches high. There was pretty uniform germination. At first, I was nervous that the micro clover hadn't germinated, because the grass had started growing but I wasn't seeing any clover. At about 2 weeks I started seeing tiny single-leaf sprouts growing, and at about 3 weeks I could see that those were the sprouts for the micro-clover. Now, at about a month in, I can see that the micro-clover is growing uniformly throughout the grass. Like I said, I'll have to wait until after I stop watering it every day to see how drought resistant it is, but it germinated well and seems to be growing well in my very sandy soil. (I intend to keep watering every day until the grass is 3" high, so probably another 2 or 3 weeks or so).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my land I lightly raked up the dead grass in the bare spots, then tossed the grass seed on the mostly bare patches of ground, covering them well, then got a bag of potting soil and tossed a thin layer on top to hide the seed from the birds and to hold moisture. Then turned on the sprinklers almost daily for about 2 minutes. In 10 days the seed sprouted and I've now cut it for the first time and it's really filled & blended in well. Overall, I am happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good germination and exactly as advertised I planted the grass seed very quickly, I did not use the compost like the directions said, I just raked it in and kept it wet. Even with just 3% microclover there is plenty of clover showing up to feed the grass. I could have done a much better job seeding the lawn but it still came up and is looking great after the 2nd mowing. I did use a prefertilizer and I kept it very moist for about a month. I did have lots of weed seeds come up but my lawn used to a be a fallow field so that is to be expected. I will update the picture when it is all filled in and matured.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So So We had the northern blend. Of the grass seed that was spread maybe 1/3 actually grew. Leaving our new lawn very patchy. We seeded again with this and about 1/4 actually grew. leaving us still with patches. I do like the clover and once established is quite drought tolerant. However, I would definitely recommend using some other grass seed at the same time. One with a better germination rate. Then you can have the clover and a full lawn.
