Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dave not just poor results, no results!
Purchased and spread 2 boxes of this seed after following preparation instructions exactly as directed. watered religiously for the past 3 weeks and have not seen 1 single seed sprout. Weeds are now taking over the yard since no pre-emergent was applied as per seeding instructions. Terrible product and waste of money. HD should discontinue carrying it as it is a poor reflection on the store to carry such an inferior product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Elle Not a blade of grass to be seen....
I bought four boxes of the Pennington argentine bahia grass seed (10lbs boxes) from the Home Depot. I live in South Florida, so I was told this was the right grass for this zone. I applied starter fertilizer to prepare the soil as the new dirt had been recently laid in december. I applied four boxes of seed overtime in December and then March. And can honestly say after watering it every day that not a blade of grass has grown. All I have is a huge weed patch. As you can imagine, I'm pretty disappointed with the result and felt that I had followed all the instructions on the box and spent countless hours watering the seed on a daily basis. I wonder if the seed was actually "alive". This product is not something I can return to the HD even though after applying the first two boxes I kept the second two empty boxes, because I was still unsure that I would get any results. But I don't think you can return empty boxes to the home depot and say the product didn't work. After spending $66 dollars per box (over $260) on seed and having no result, I feel that I could not suggest this product or give a good review on the HD website. I'm inclined not to buy any more pennington seed at this point.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Poor product
A wise man learns from his mistakes a fool continues to make them... i bought this product initially and not one seed germinated, so i figured it was a bad batch so i ordered it from a different state and did a small germination test( some seeds in a cup on tissues..about forty seeds or so) Firstly, the seeds took extremely long as they said they would...surprisingly some seeds germinated about Eight of them, so i make it about a 20% germination rate. i would suggest that the persons ordering for Home Depot do some random spot checks ..these seeds simply aren't worth it...would return them but my sister threw away the bill.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mariano I wish I have read these reviews before!
Over 30 days of seeding and I can barely see a very spreadly result. My guess only 10% or less of the seeds have germinated. I would not recommend this product. I spent money and the worse part the working and germinating time. Now, I am planning to start all over with new brand and type of seeds.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by woodmanflip worst purchase ever!!
Put product in broadcast spreader and spread on my small front lawn that had many bald spots, then raked in and watered. It rained lightly every day for 6 days straight, then i watered by hand on days we had no rain. After 21 days not one seed sprouted and have still not seen one sprout of grass from this product and its been 5 weeks or more. If you want grass buy sod, not this product!!!!
