Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WOW! To preface: I used Pennington's Northwest Seed. To say this is the best grass I have ever seen or used, is a gross understatement! I have a small backyard (about 460 sq ft of lawn area) and the existing grass was a mishmash of different seed types and full of large brown spots and weeds and clover, etc. I put in the time and a LOT of effort to roto-till the old sod and till the ground to a depth of several inches. I then spent a couple of weeks, raking the old sod and roots out and separating the soil from them. I stock piled the soil in an area of the yard, leveled the grade by hand and began seeding. I spread the seed by hand, to ensure compete coverage and then spread the stockpiled soil over the top. After that, I went over it all again with another 3 # bag and began watering. The lawn was seeded on a Friday afternoon and on Wednesday, the seed had sprouted and is thriving. I am writing this review TWO WEEKS to the day the grass seed was planted! Check out the attached photos. I will NEVER EVER buy any grass seed that isn't Pennington!!! June 28, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Finally! We had our doubts that this was ever going to grow. After the long rainy week we are finally starting to see some grass pop up in the bare patches we put seed. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Can't believe it actually worked. It was inexpensive and it grew within 12 days, I had to water it twice a day though, once in the morning and once at night for 5-10 minutes each time. May 19, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst seed I ever bought, I am still waiting after three weeks for the seed to germinate. May 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by no I bought it 3 weeks ago yhe seed I can still see it hasn't done anything and it's very frustrating I watter it plus we've gotten so much rain but nothing has worked May 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Product I have tried Used it last year in a shade area. This year that area has a nice coverage. So I have another area that I am using it this year. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Filled in Quickly! I used Pennington Smart Seed to fill in a bare spot which was left after I moved a small tree to a new location. I prepared my soil and generously applied the seed, working it gently into the soil. For mulch, I used grass clippings. I watered daily for the first week+, and the grass quickly germinated. Overall I was very pleased with the price and performance of this seed. The blend between rye, fescue and bluegrass will assure a good blend into my yard. If you adequately prepare your soil and keep your seed watered, there is no way this product shouldn't work for you. October 1, 2014
