When do you plant?

Asked by: Charlie1954
In the Buffalo, NY area, I have seeded from late February til October with good results. Early spring seeding takes a long time to germinate and you can't put down crabgrass preventer or your seed won't sprout. Summer is good as long as you keep watering when necessary. The seed usually sprouts fast. Fall is good because it usually does not require a lot of watering. It is also important to put down starter fertilizer so the grass thickens up and fills in.

I need to know the coverage of this seed before I can order. Duh.

I have 2,000 s.f. new lawn to plant in shady location. Ozark mountains. Thanks.
Asked by: Hal
We would recommend using 3 pounds per 1,000 sq. ft. when seeding a bare area. Kentucky Bluegrass will establish best in areas that receive at least four hours of daily sunlight.

is it possible to know what bluegrass varieties are in the blend?

Asked by: Tommy
I have yet to find a site that list the varieties online. I guess you have to go to the store. I tried going to the company internet sites, no luck

Smart Seed 3 lb. Kentucky Bluegrass Grass Seed Blend is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the price! It takes forever to germinate... Not worth the price! It takes forever to germinate and I got a lot of weeds with it. I paid more for seed with the hopes of getting a nice lawn. I water twice a day and results are very slow. I had no luck with this so called Smart Seed! I requested and received a refund from Home Depot. I was glad that they understood my extreme frustration. This product was a waste of money and my time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommend I live in Chicago. I wanted to reseed my yard with Kentucky Blue grass. I tested this Pennington bag in a good sized area. I spread the seed right before we had a good few days of rain. I never watered again. Then about 2 weeks later the grass grew all over the place. I spread Scott's Kentucky Blue grass mix that supposedly coats their seeds to help absorb water, feed it and protect it. I watered that darn seed twice a day for about 2 weeks and the seed barely grew. Went back to Pennington.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST grass seed! I did some research that showed that Pennington had better results than Scotts seed. I used Scotts in the past and was disappointed to find that even the Kentucky Bluegrass they offered was a mix with some other grass seeds, so when my grass came up, it was not the perfect Kentucky Bluegrass I wanted. I wanted all Kentucky Bluegrass, and that's what Pennington gives you. Home Depot delivered it in 4 days, and I gave the 3 bags to my gardener, and voila-- 8 days later, the grass was coming up. (Yard is too large for me to seed on my own.) Kentucky Bluegrass is the finest grass you can have - like the golf courses. This is a pricey seed, but when you see the final product you will know it's worth it. It is usually not in stock in the store. Home Depot offers a great price online, and you get free shipping with a $45 purchase. I highly recommend this seed and you won't get a better price than at Home Depot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product So Im gonna start with all the other products that i used and failed 1.) Scotts® Turf Builder® Contractor's Mix (North). This is the worst product ive ever used, full of fillers and definately not good if you are looking for a lush lawn. It grew in spots first i thought the soil needed some kinda treatment and 1 got it tested from the rutgers (NJ) but it was fine. So definitely it was the seed. 2.)Scotts Turf Builder 7 lb. Kentucky Bluegrass Mix. Another bad product. please save your money. same results as the contractor mix. money went down the drain. Ok so after trying all these I did some research i decided to test the Pennington Smart Seed Kentucky Bluegrass in some patched just because i dint wanted to waste all that money again!!. So after like 10 days the grass came out and now its almost a month and the patched look filled up. After the results I have seeded 10,000sqft. will post the before and after picture soon. so far based on the test this product is worth the extra money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be Patient to See Results The product works very well but you must be patient. After 2 weeks, I saw minimal growth and was quite upset. After another 2 weeks, the thickness of the lawn is beyond my expectations. I didn't water every day like the instructions suggest but there was a significant amount of rainfall during the growth period.
