Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nelson . Pennington professional turf grass- the premium perennial ryegrass blend
This product is superior to anything else on the market today. It came highly recommended by the Pennington name through my lawn specialist and landscaper guy. As long as you pay particular attention to that first critical week of growth you will have a beautiful, lush green lawn in no time. I used it to fill in bare spots and to overseed in the fall and couldn’t be happier. Hands down this product beats anything in the overpriced Scott’s lineup.

3rd year I've used this product. I usually get near 90 percent germination with very little prep. My grass improves every year and I see less and less weeds.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rocco Poor Choice of "Premium" Product
I purchased this product so that I could have a lush, green lawn during the fall and winter months in Dallas, TX area. After six weeks of sunny, warm weather with twice a day watering I have yet to see one blade of grass.
As water is taxed very heavily in Texas I suspect that I spent more than $200 in watering my lawn. But Pennington's Supreme Ryegrass mix did not germinate.
In the 14 years that I have lived in Dallas, TX I have applied various rye grass products. Some were good some were OK. All were less expensive. This year I spent a lot of money for the premium Pennington product and lawn watering. What a disappointment.
I do want to report that the number of weeds in my lawn has increased significantly since applying this product. Perhaps the Pennington team's supreme blend includes weed seed?
Oh well I guess I can wait until next year and try another brand and I know I will save some money in doing this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CrazyDogLady Best grass seed on the market
We have a sloping back yard..the soil is like sand...an absolute nightmare...along with dogs...nothing would grow and the 'soil' just erodes to the yard behind us. I (a woman who knows nothing about landscape) bought it, on a whim, hand sprinkled and was amazed...for the first time in years, we have grass. The winter snow erosion still takes it's toll...but I'm aleady seeing the results of this years hand sprinkling a few weeks ago, Now the neighbors are asking what I use. Love it!!

Planted this seed when it was 90 in the day, 70s at night. Took a week and a half. Laid it down super thick. Looks amazing, deep green, doesn't bleed too much on clothing, shoes etc... Homedepot service is second to none.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dmcling Specific grass for where you live
Many books recommend Kentucky Bluegrass for the Mid Atlantic area. However, the hot summers we have had for several years tends to kill this blend. For the first time in years, we tried the Pennington Fairway Rye Grass blend along with some Tall Fescue. What a difference. What an improvement and our lawn looks better than most in our area. It still looks great....spring, summer AND fall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sunshine Actually growing in my yard!
I have very sandy soil in NW Florida panhandle and recently had more fill dirt (yellow sand) brought in and wanted to get some grass growing on it in November. I was told not to do sod this time of year as it will not take as well during 'dormant' late fall/winter season. So, I went with a temporary fix with the winter rye. I was told cheaper rye seed has a lot of weed seed in it so I went for this product. It did NOT say it was 99.9% weed-free on the bag (thought the HD web listing mentioned it)....so, upon arrival and inspection of the bag, I called Pennington HQ to make sure it was weed-free before I put it out. They confirmed it is 99.9% weed-free and I have yet to see any weeds sprouting with the new grass. I put the seed out with a seed spreader and did very light raking (to 'set' the seeds) but I am not even sure the raking was necessary. It took about 8-10 days to start seeing any growth but it is starting to look like a real lawn again two weeks after placement. I have a sprinkler system and have done short 5 minute watering about 6-8x a day but keep in mind my weather hasn't been below 40 or above 80 here since putting seed out. GOOD LUCK...I am NOT a yard person and I have been happy with results.
