Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BSEM Switching to Ryegrass
I live in central Virginia where no grass grows well. Fescue is the most common but unless it is watered and pampered all summer, and reseeded each fall it will end the summers yellow and full of weeds . So we have just made the switch to Ryegrass this fall to hopefully look green and healthy until late spring and will then let Bermuda take over in the summer months. I prepared the yard by raking pine needles and dead grass as much as I could stand (which wasn't much at all). Then had the yard aerated. I cut the grass very low which also helped to break up clots from the aeration. I then put down fertilizer over the whole yard. Just before rain was expected, I used a spreader to seed the yard with 40 lbs of Pennington Perennial Ryegrass. This was seeded over lots of weeds and whatever fescue still remained. I saved the last 10 lbs. to fill in bare spots that would inevitably show up. We did have the rain and seeds were up in about 7 days. I may have had to water once or twice a little. Am working on a few bare spots now where seeds were washed out. So far, so good.

Have used Pennington Fairway Supreme grass seed for several years now, along with treating with a four-step fertilizer process and my lawn looks good (except during this terrible drought we are having this year 2016). It sprouts quickly and holds up well under heavy traffic and usual heat and rough winters. I will use nothing else in my yard. We have been using this for 10+ years. It is the best seed I have ever used. Seeds bare spots well and I used to overseed in the fall and our Spring grass aways looks healthy and green. You can't wrong with Pennington Fairway Supreme!

The package was delivered quickly and very efficient. The content was well protected and as advertised. Thus far, I am completely satisfied with the product and purchase, although I have just began to spread the seed. I would recommend buying this product in comparison to the Annual Rye version.

Planted these seeds during late fall and had a beautiful green lawn this spring especially in places that were barren.

It is on the expensive side but grows beautiful and strong. I live in the north east and have 2 70 lbs dogs who rip apart my lawn. This has held up the best so far. Worth the money.

The price per pound on this seed was very good and the blend is what grows best here in the Northwest so I thought I would try it.
Over the summer I had stopped watering my backyard and dug up quite a few areas to improve my sprinkler system. The grass I stopped watering was a mess! After I was finished with the sprinklers and once the rain started I aerated and reseeded. In the dug up areas I added extra seed and a thin layer of peat moss.
The new areas or areas with peat moss began to show signs of green within a week, very quick. The rest of the yard the results have not been quite as impressive. Even though I tried to work the seed into the old grass I probably should have thatched and then aerated. Not the seeds fault.
Where it is growing really well I have not noticed any weeds, just good looking grass as I was expecting.
