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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase The grass seed worked very well. The grass came in very thick. July 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by grass what can I say, I planted the grass seed following directions and some of it grew. I cannot blame that on the seed though. I had a "professional" yard service fertilize and mow my yard this spring. Since that time it has developed numerous dead patches . Those patches are where I used this seed. Some of the seed in these areas is doing great, other portions never came up. I just reseeded those spots again and it is too soon to know if this time it will grow . I have used this brand of seed in the past with excellent results, but it cannot cure the "pro's" mistake. July 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good grass seed Planted keeped watered came up fast nice green grass blended right in July 14, 2015
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mixed results Worked better in some areas than others despite having used the same process, same soil, same sun and same watering. June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grass came up Great The seed fast and now gives us a nice addition to our lawn. June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Only grass seed that will work for me. I am not sure what they put in this seed, but you could grow grass on the moon with this stuff. I have very hard clay here in Ohio, so nothing works for me like this seed here, and even some of the other Pennington products just wont cut it. I used their one step, and if you ask me, it should be used for making piñatas only with all the paper they stuff in there, not growing grass. Anyway, I always aerate my yard ins the fall and spring, and then use my spreader to put this seed down then hit it with a starter fertilizer. Within two weeks, it's growing and starts filling in all the bare and thin spots. I have actually had professional landscapers ask what I do to my yard to keep it looking so green and thick. This seed is great, and really grows some beautiful grass. Just make sure to keep it damp, and to plat it in the fall (is the best time to plant) or spring. June 3, 2015
