Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JDUB Excellent seed for dense shade
This seed really works -- and in the dense shade too. I'm keeping the bag to be certain I buy the same seed next time. I got my truck stuck on the steep slope of my yard and created a rutted, muddy mess (had to be towed out). This seed, a little straw, a couple of rains made the yard look like this mishap never happened. Great product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EFH Product result
60% shade, watered area daily as per instruction, temperature range within range printed on package. Grass growth sparse and very thin. Had to put nose to ground to see it. Going to seed with winter rye in fall and Bahia in spring. That should do it!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by atxneil Good product, but misleading on coverage
It does grow and thrive in shade.
Cons: It says a 3# bag is enough for 750 sqft, but in my experience, double that quantity is needed.
Also, I recommend just spreading by hand since using a spreader seems to cause the seed to be concentrated instead of distributed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TampaJoe Not a permanent Florida grass
We thought we could use this product in a partly shady section of our lawn but found out (via a phone call to the manufacturer) that it cannot survive hot temps like we have in Florida. One could probably use this product during the winter and spring much like people use rye grass seed. We returned the product without opening it.

My backyard in Brooklyn is 90% shade. I started with all dirt put downf fertilizer the seeds and the green mesh last summer. The green mesh took until this spring to disappear I had a few bare patches thanks to the birds but I used more seed this spring and it filled in nicely. The seed is fabulous.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Foneman Excellent product. So glad that I purchased it. Bought a small bag to give it a try. Have since purchased a large bag.
I was leery about the claim to be able to grow grass in a shady area. Not any more.

Grass seed is so expensive, so before I invested in the large bag, I bought a small bag of Pennington and a small bag of a competing brand. I tried both in a portion of the yard, and this beat the other one hands down! Looks like I'll be going out for the larger bag now!
