Product Overview

Pennington Annual Ryegrass grass seed is ideal for the quick establishment of a temporary lawn. It is a throw-and-grow seed that can be planted without tilling or digging into the soil and destroying permanent ground cover already in place. Designed for temporary or seasonal lawns. It works in the winter months to provide greening and prevent erosion. This seed is perfect for new lawn growth and does not require digging.

  • Fast germination for quick cover
  • Can be used for over-seeding dormant warm-weather grasses such as bermuda and zoysia to maintain a green lawn year round
  • Helpful in erosion control
  • Best for full sun to light shade (6-8 hours of sun per day)
  • Germinates in 5-10 days
  • Covers up to 10,000 sq. ft.
  • Note: product may vary by store

Depends how thick and green you want it. I used a fertilizer spreader between 3 & 4 setting to get the effect I wanted.

Answer: 
I purchased my rye grass seed a few weeks ago 350 lbs for about 3 acres.
I over seeded mine Not sure about the sq. feet part . If you have a spreader
which I did not ; you should be able to cover 1/2 acre pretty good with 50 lbs.
Hope this helps

Answer: 
Suggested seeding rates vary from 9 to 40 pounds per acre. One acre is 43, 560 square feet.
The difference in the suggested rates is dependent on the seeding method used, seed bed preparation, and the importance of soil protection. (Higher seeding rates provide more dense coverage = better erosion control)

Answer: 
The package says 5,000 sq. ft. for new lawns and 10,000 sq. ft. for reseeding of established lawns. I used a hand broadcaster rather than a push style I find that I get a much more even coverage with it. I used about 35lbs to do my project and I put 2 heavy applications down.

Hello,
Annual Ryegrass will provide a temporary cover but generally lasts one growing season. Ryegrasses grow quickly and can help slower growing grasses to get established.

Answer: 
Hello,
Annual Ryegrass is used when you need a fast growing temporary turf. It will die off at the end of the season. A turfgrass such as St. Augustinegrass or Bermudagrass would be a good option for a permanent lawn.
Thank you

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ryegrass I planted this as a quick grower to help get perrenial grass seed started. This seed did not grow well at all. Not really sure it grew at all. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice green yard in less than 2 weeks! Followed the directions and had a nice green lawn all winter. I had a full green yard in about 10 days. Steps I took: I mowed the yard shorter than normal (2 on my tractor). Then picked up any remaining clippings and leaves. Dropped the seed and kept them wet by running my sprinklers 5-7 minutes per zone 2X a day (morning and evening). I did that till the grass came up then adjusted my sprinklers to 5-10 minutes 1X a week unless we had rainfall. I added Scott's Fall Fertilizer (maroon bag) after the first mow which helped green up the lawn. After 6-8 weeks I dropped another round of the Scott's Fall Fertilizer which allowed the grass to continue to grow and helped green up some more. It is best to drop this seed 30 days before the first freeze. Normally that is early October here in North Texas but this year it was nearly the end of October before it was cool enough to germinate. This was an overseed over my Bermuda here in North Texas. This rye requires a mow every 4-6 weeks. December 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful! I am extremely happy with this seed. I pulled up an old wood deck and that left a large bare spot. I did not want this area to be a mud pit for the dogs all winter. The seed sprouted and grew fast within two weeks of planting. It's hard to believe that it was just dirt a month ago. November 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good The grass seed worked pretty well. The grass was up and growing in a few weeks. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arrived quickly and was packed well .Arrived quickly and was packed well. I would buy from them again. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Brand of Grass Seed With almost any type of grass seed from Penningtons you get the best. We sowed this seed then it rained and ryegrass came right up. This particular blend is a brighter shade of green. December 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovin’ the green We purchased two varieties of rye grass seed this year for use in two different areas of our property; a perennial rye from another grass seed grower/ distributor, and this annual gulf rye by Pennington. Our goals for both types of grass seed are to provide erosion control, prevent sub-surface leaching of soil nutrients, weed suppression, and forage for deer. Since we had a large area to seed in a short time (before fall/winter rains started), we opted for the “throw & go” planting technique … not bothering with the normal lawn preparation steps of smoothing the soil and raking the seed in. While the “throw & go” seeding technique is much faster and much less labor intensive, it does leave the seed on the soil surface advertizing a “FREE ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFET” to hungry birds, so we seeded at a much higher rate than the suggested 15-30 Lbs/Acre. The annual rye seed germinated faster than the perennial rye seed, it is also growing faster than the perennial rye. Because of the annual rye grass root system’s ability to easily penetrate even compacted soil we seeded the annual rye in areas that had seen the most traffic, as a cover crop/green manure in areas planned for growing vegetables next year, and overseeded existing dormant grasses. Whether planted in loose or compacted soil conditions, there does not appear to be a visible difference in the growth rate for this annual rye seed. Overall product satisfaction is high. The only negative or down side was the poor quality, lightweight, random and oversized boxes that were used to ship the product from Pennington in Missouri to our location in Washington. Of the nine boxes shipped, seven were either severely damaged or completely destroyed. The grass seed shipped in the damaged boxes had been exposed to the weather (rain) and was delivered wet. Taking steps to assure that their product will be delivered safely and in good condition could be given a higher priority. October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good fast growing grass seed Built new house and needed something to cover ground and help stop erosion. This ryegrass grows fast and is okay for fall, mild winters and early spring. Don't make the mistake thinking the grass will hold up in hot weather. First sign of heat and the grass will wilt and die. Regardless,this grass is good for short term until your permanent grass gets established. December 29, 2015
