Grow a beautiful, dark green, fine textured Tall Fescue lawn. Premium, pure-bred Pennington Smart Seed is guaranteed to grow thick and healthy grass.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Seed - grew fast and strong. Lightly raked my dead yard and filled in some low spots with top soil and hand-spread the seed over the whole place. I used a lot of seed for my lot-size (about a quarter acre). I then raked the seeds in a little bit (not even a whole-hearted effort). This was in early September. I had the seeds sprouting within a week, and had a lush looking lawn within 2 weeks. Did my first mowing on week four. It has been almost 2 months and nothing has died yet. I'm bracing for the winter now - lets see how it takes the cold. October 28, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by If you want a lawn of weeds this is it! Mostly weed grew. I contacted Pennington and they implied in so many words it was my fault. I've used Pennington for years and never had such problems. I will never use them again. I didn't even get enough fescue to claim all the work I did to prepare the soil and water everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works as advertised - Perhaps better First - Read the instructions. I planted about 1,000 square feet to repair winter plow damage along our lane. Following the directions the seed was applied liberally and I took the extra precaution of covering with straw to keep the seeds from moving around during rain storms. Watered daily to keep the straw "Moist". First mow at 21 days with 4-inch tall grass. I couldn't be more pleased. July 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best seed! This grass seed is the fastest sprouting seed I have ever used! I have clay heavy soil and the seeds still sprouted within 2 weeks. After 4-6 weeks my entire back yard (800 sqft) is no longer a dirt pit! The only bad thing about this product is now I have to mow the yard ;-) February 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Grass Seed Seed sprouts good and in 1 month almost looks like the rest of your grass. Bought some Scotts water smart coated seed and can't get it to sprout. Bought a 20 pound bag and plan to use the rest this fall for some bare spots left by eradicating dandelions. June 4, 2014
