Customer Questions & Answers

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 3.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Grass has kind of a known value. Can't really properly evaluate this brand until Spring. Blue Grass has kind of a known value. Can't really properly evaluate this brand until Spring. My plan is to wait until first snow is forecast and apply then. Hopefully the critters wont get to it and I'l have a lovely lawn to mow next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I have used this product before with good results. Very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good seed--the question is how well will it hold up. The most unusual thing about this seed is its small size. It is about half the size of other grass I have sown. It takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to germinate. The last planting came up in 2 weeks. It must have been the cool damp nights in Buffalo, NY. Most of the seed seems to have germinated. If this survives the winter and comes back after a drought, I would give it 5 stars. A year from now I will update the review if it is possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't used anything but this product I've used nothing but Pennington Kentucky Bluegrass and have always been satisfied. I noticed someone said that theirs never grew, I find that extremely hard to believe if you followed the directions on the back. This is a great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seed grew in areas I couldn't get grass to grow I had some areas of my yard that were compacted from dog traffic and shaded. I broke up the soil to a few inches down and distributed the seed. It lightly rained the next couple days and then again a few days later but that was all the watering it got. I started raking the leaves and noticed a lot of new grass growth under them. I was very excited and surprised (figuring I didn't do my part very well tending to the newly seeded areas). It's been a month or so and just about all the seeded area is covered with new grass. Very satisfied.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little growth After trying Scotts Kentucky Bluegrass Mix and getting little to no growth last year, we decided to try the Pennington Kentucky Bluegrass Blend. The Pennington seed grew only slightly better. I used some light sprinkles of Miracle Grow with the Pennington which may have made the difference. Both the Scotts and the Pennington seed received daily watering. The Pennington seed was placed in a well cleared 6' x 6' area to test it and though it grew a little, the growth wasn't very good even by the 5 week mark - just some very spindly thin blades in a few patches. As for germination time the first small signs of growth appeared at the 14 day mark. The bag says Seedling Emergence in 10 to 21 days so it is indeed slow in comparison to Perennial Rye seed. Unfortunately, the grass that did grow was a rather light green, and not like a Midnight KBG or some of the best KBG seeds. In fairness to the Kentucky Blue Grass seeds, it may be that Washington, DC, in the transition zone between north and south here on the east coast, isn't a good region for KBG. A garden center here said KBG is hard to grow here. These are the kinds of Kentucky Bluegrass seed that came in the Pennington KBG bag I received: 48.80% Ridgeline Kentucky Bluegrass 24,30% Wild Horse Kentucky Bluegrass 14.50% Oasis Kentucky Bluegrass 9.60% Mallard Kentucky Bluegrass 2.60% Inert Matter You can read more about lots of grass types and seeds at NTEP, which stands for National Turfgrass Evaluation Program. I think these Pennington seeds must be rather new without much data tabulated yet by sources outside of Pennington.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bluegrass is the best for Great Lakes Region for drought and weather I have started to bounce between Scotts and Pennington. It has been a tough summer in the Midwest\Great Lakes with cold temps and lots of rain (abnormal). Some areas are growing great while others are not but without a horticulture degree I did my best. This seems to grow well if you follow the instructions carefully and expect a longer than normal germination period this year.
