Questions & Answers

what spreader can I use with this grass seed?

Asked by: debbo
I did not use a spreader, just hand spread it and it came up just fine.

Does it grow in the shade?

Asked by: Randy
Yes, but not dense shade all day long. It does need sun for about 4 to 6 hours.

I have St. Augustine grass in my backyard, are these seeds compatible with the existing grass, is it going to change the way it looks.

Asked by: Peter
The Smart Seed Sun and Shade will provide a dark green, fine bladed lawn. The varieties used in this mixture are different in appearance than St. Augustine.

Smart Seed 3 lb. Sun and Shade Central Grass Seed is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 53.

I put down Pennington Smart Seed about 6 weeks ago. I followed the directions and watered daily. The only thing that came up was crabgrass and weeds. TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Since crabgrass is technically a grass I had a 15 ft by 15 ft bare spot in my backyard under an oak tree. Bought a bag and got good results! I then cleared out some brush and spread another bag of see since it did good, had some really cold days after that seeding so it took it a little longer to start growing. Well, it has been a couple of months now and cut it a few times, and now where I seeded there is more crabgrass than anything. Looks like I will be starting over. If you want green in brown areas, this stuff is great. If you want good real grass, then go with something different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stayed green all summer in our heat. And stays green in winter. No more winter seeding. Soft, comfortable to walk on. Way better than scotts.
Date published: 2012-10-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from From dirt to GREEN lawn in 8 days! I followed the directions on the package (using a starter fertilizer) and on day 7 there were sprout of grass popping up everywhere. By the end of the next day the yard was almost completely green with grass. ...and I do not have a green thumb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dave L I used the Pennington seed on 1/2 my heavily shaded yard and Scott's EZ Seed on the other 1/2. The Pennington germinated in 2 weeks. The Scott's seed never germinated. I returned the Scotts bags to Home Depot, got a full refund, and reseeded the bare side of my yard with Pennington Smart Seed. It is all thick and green now. I won't waste my time ever again with Scott's seeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Seed Ever for the Midwest By far the best grass seed I have ever used. Those having issues with it may want to check the soil first. That would be the only problem with it not germinating. Takes a while to germinate but once it takes hold it is super. I have put seed down in the late fall in Wisconsin not seeing much growth, but low and behold there it was is Spring. Often I just toss it over thin areas of my lawn in late fall to find a lush lawn in spring. The only issue with this seed is the consumer, not the seed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grass seed I grew a tray of this seed within a jiffy seed tray with lid under grow lights to seed what this would do under perfect conditions. WOW! Great results. Just look at the picture.
