Customer Questions & Answers

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.

Is this a summer seasonal grass? Will it go dormit in then winter like a Bermuda grass

Asked by: DMO
This is a cool grass ( fescu, blue grass, Rye) not a (warm) Florida like grass like Bermuda or St. Augustine. Will go dormant during the winter (snow) or will go Dormant in the summer with lack of rain. Dormancy will last up to 6 weeks in summer. (Midwest) without rain. Grass will yellow up. After the 6 weeks or so you need to water about 1/4 inch, not to turn the lawn green but to keep the "bulb" on top of the root under the dirt alive.

How many for the seed to germinate

Asked by: Dv
All seeds will germinate, but the more seed you use the thicker the lawn. Keep in mind you don't "bury" the seed in the soil. It only needs to be in touch with dirt. Toss straw on top to help keep moist longer. Water twice a day until germination. Then water twice a week until roots establish deep into the soil.

Smart Seed 3 lb. Sun and Shade Central Grass Seed is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 17.
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 1 out of 5 by from Pennington seeds Pennington seeds planted eight days ago and still have not seen a single germinating seed. Watering every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grass seed Beautiful Green color grows quickly good density blends well with existing grass
Date published: 2016-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not one seed sprouted!! Very disappointed!! Followed instructions and not one seed sprouted!! AA waste of time & $$
Date published: 2016-05-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2014-05-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
