Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerseyJay Extremely good grass seed!
Who ever says this isn't good seed needs to study. The key is prep if you throw it down on weeds chances are you will not have a nice lush lawn. Use a starter fertilizer that will control weeds for a while so that the seedlings don't have to compete. Pay close attention to weed growth and pull out as they pop up IF they pop up. Put down extra birds will love your lawn for a while I used a lawn roller half filled with water to bed in the seeds. keep a eye on thin spots and spot treat lastly WATER WATER AND WATER!!! keep the lawn as moist as possible with out too many puddles. I also reccomend having your soil tested to determine what needs to be added to make your conditions optimal University of Delaware does it in this area pretty cheap $10

I live in Chicago. I wanted to reseed my yard with Kentucky Blue grass. I tested this Pennington bag in a good sized area. I spread the seed right before we had a good few days of rain. I never watered again. Then about 2 weeks later the grass grew all over the place. I spread Scott's Kentucky Blue grass mix that supposedly coats their seeds to help absorb water, feed it and protect it. I watered that darn seed twice a day for about 2 weeks and the seed barely grew. Went back to Pennington.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doglover The BEST grass seed!
I did some research that showed that Pennington had better results than Scotts seed. I used Scotts in the past and was disappointed to find that even the Kentucky Bluegrass they offered was a mix with some other grass seeds, so when my grass came up, it was not the perfect Kentucky Bluegrass I wanted. I wanted all Kentucky Bluegrass, and that's what Pennington gives you. Home Depot delivered it in 4 days, and I gave the 3 bags to my gardener, and voila-- 8 days later, the grass was coming up. (Yard is too large for me to seed on my own.) Kentucky Bluegrass is the finest grass you can have - like the golf courses. This is a pricey seed, but when you see the final product you will know it's worth it. It is usually not in stock in the store. Home Depot offers a great price online, and you get free shipping with a $45 purchase. I highly recommend this seed and you won't get a better price than at Home Depot.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GBRI Not Much of an Upgrade from Scotts
While my experience shows Scotts to be the lowest end of the lawn seed sold at Home Depot, Pennington is not much higher on the list. It has a higher germination rate but overall didn't do well after planting in the fall and watering as needed. I got better results from Lesco and Midnight seed.

So Im gonna start with all the other products that i used and failed
1.) Scotts® Turf Builder® Contractor's Mix (North). This is the worst product ive ever used, full of fillers and definately not good if you are looking for a lush lawn. It grew in spots first i thought the soil needed some kinda treatment and 1 got it tested from the rutgers (NJ) but it was fine. So definitely it was the seed.
2.)Scotts Turf Builder 7 lb. Kentucky Bluegrass Mix.
Another bad product. please save your money. same results as the contractor mix. money went down the drain.
Ok so after trying all these I did some research i decided to test the Pennington Smart Seed Kentucky Bluegrass in some patched just because i dint wanted to waste all that money again!!. So after like 10 days the grass came out and now its almost a month and the patched look filled up. After the results I have seeded 10,000sqft. will post the before and after picture soon. so far based on the test this product is worth the extra money.

I got tired of using Scotts brand seed. It had very spotty performance and was not dependable. I prepped by rototilling the area, added sheep and peet, sand, water retaining polymer crystals. I even added some bacteria along with earthworms. SO I over did it. But I planted this seed in Denver Colorado, within 7 DAYS it was germinating. It has completely taken over. Very Pleased. Worth the money. Do not mess with Scotts, buy this.

I have overseeded my lawn the past 2 falls with Pennington Kentucky Bluegrass seed. It is excellent for filling in the less-dense areas and gives the lawn a more uniform appearance.
