Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent grass seed I tilled my yard and raked out most of the weeds! I then leveled my tilled yard with a 2x4 to get it as smooth as possible and then spead the smart seed with a hand held spreader and water at least 2-3 times a day until seed sprouts! my yarrd looks beautiful and people can't believe how nice and green my yard is! My yard is so nice and thick and is the nicest yard i've ever had! Also it's the nicest yard on my entire block! Like I said i just spread the seed on top of the ground and it looks super nice! 5 STARS - Great grass seed! You have to make sure to water your new seed at least 2-3 TIMES A DAY FOR GOOD GERMINATION! March 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Grass Seed I have seen in a long time! I will say that this grass seed does grow very fast seeing results within 1 weeks time. I recommend this type of grass seed for areas that you are looking to cover due to bald spots from animal urine or other spots that grass is hard to grow. I will continue to use this seed due to seeing fast results in such a short time. November 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent germination and growth rates Put down this seed in areas ranging from all sun to mostly shade with an inexpensive topsoil cover. An excellent germination rate, with shoots appearing rapidly, and growing quickly to a cutting height. Did not do a lot of watering. October 23, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pennington Smart Seed "Smart Seed" What's so smart about it? Germinates well in full sun with poor germination rate even in moderate shade. Requires more than adequate watering even thought this spring has been on the wet side. May 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ok product ok product, I expected better results. Would not buy this product again. September 30, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Happy with Pennington We were seeding a small area of 1000 sq. ft. Purchased 5 tons of sifted black topsoil and spread it without much compaction. Seeded with Pennington and Watered as recommended on the bag. Less than half of the product emerged. I will contact Pennington seed for a recommendation, depending on that will determine my next step. I will keep you informed. July 1, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No results... Bought a small bag to check on results but never did see any new grass come up...maybe the birds liked it but I would have preferred to see something to mow...Oh well. July 15, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy!! Not a blade of grass has come up from this seed. Don't waste your money!! April 1, 2014
