Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great buy. I am very Happy with the outcome on this grass seed. I Water them twice a day for About two weeks.and they start growing in seven days. November 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty good stuff A little pricey but worked fairly well. Used it for spot seeding in fairly poor conditions (sandy, acidic, etc.) Was not able to water as much as would have liked with normal seed and seemed to tolerate this. Saw sprouts in a about a week which I thought was fairly good for Fescue. September 16, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst product ever Nothing was growing,good food for pigeons.I was using fertilizer ,miracle grow,water.My HOA send me letter that will start to fine me. August 28, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Results This seed seems to grow very easily. Overall, I am very happy with the product. Do think it is overpriced though. April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seed grew well and has lasted Planted this in a new yard and it seems to be great. I loosened up the soil with a rake, threw down some composted loam, spread the seed, lightly raked it so it would be just a little bit under the surface of the dirt (to help keep birds from eating it and to keep rain from washing it away so easily) and then rolled it. After watering it lightly twice a day for a week, the grass popped up out and is growing strong. Nothing to complain about. Just a word of advice more than you think you'll need because you inevitably have to go back and reseed thin spots (this would apply to any type of seed). September 18, 2012
