Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lucky Pleasantly surprised!
I almost didn't buy this product based on the negative reviews but glad I did. Before I bought the seed, I researched “how to plant zoysia seed” websites. I decided to seed a small area to see if the seed would take. I seeded my area 21 May 2015 using instructions from "how to” websites and not the instructions on the bag. I didn’t use weed killer to prepare my area. I just dug up my existing grass (I didn’t need to till because existing soil was loose), seeded, covered new seed lightly with topsoil, and watered. I live in Texas and the following weeks after I seeded, we had horrendous rain and wind for 2 weeks straight. Even the temperature dropped a couple of nights below 70 degrees. Not expecting much from the seed after that, I practically gave up and thought that I would have to re-seed and re-do that area all over again. On 2 June 2015, I decided to go outside to take a look at what damage the rain had did to my newly seeded zoysia area. I was shocked when I actually saw that the zoysia seed had sprouted despite the bad weather!
I would just say try using different instruction for planting instead of what the bag recommends.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by azhockey Low yield
I did some research about best time and conditions to use the seeds. I have Zoisia in 70% of my large yard and wanted to fill in an area I prepped to complete the yard. Not a single seed grew, even tried to make plugs by planting them into numerous egg cartons, nothing! I used 1/3 of the seeds 2 times on the area, covered, watered...etc. Nothing. I heard the yield was low but 0% is a waste of money. I also tried to seed them into thin spot in the existing Zoisia, nothing! Aeraeted some, tried in the shade, sun, high water, low water.I tried area's I balanced the PH, fertilized areas, unfertilized areas, with and w/o fill dirt, limed.... we can't even grow these seeds in the house in planters.

I really hate to rate this product at this time because I do not see any progress yet. I know these grass seeds are very slow growing, so I am being patient. I would like to review this product in a year.

I planted this seed during the spring and it is well on its way to establishing itself. I already have some patches that are extremely thick. Note - this seed is not for someone who lacks patience. You must plant, water every day, and wait. Once it gets going...your good. For the first six weeks it will not look like anything is happening. I noticed it start to grow faster when air temps were cinsistently above 72 degree's....probably because the soil was warming up. If your patient, go for it.

Don't waste your money. Grass is hard to grow from seed. This product makes it extremely difficult. It does not work. All of the seeds was dead. The seed company will come to stores and change the package dates on the bag just to sell their worthless product.

Overall we are very pleased with this product. It has pretty quick results for seeds and is filling in well with our already established Zoysia. Highly recommend.

I have always wanted Zoysia grass and because of construction at the house I had a large part of the yard dug up. I spread the seed and watered daily. At about 20 days started to see the sprouts EVERYWHERE! It was fantastic!
