I have St. Augustine grass in my backyard, are these seeds compatible with the existing grass, is it going to change the way it looks.

Asked by: Peter
The Smart Seed Sun and Shade will provide a dark green, fine bladed lawn. The varieties used in this mixture are different in appearance than St. Augustine.

Do I need to use fertilizer with this product? If so, which is best for new lawns?

Asked by: RP
I did not use fertilizer, but I guess you could if you wanted to. I just hand spread it and watered once a day, and the grass sprouted in less than a week.

Smart Seed 7 lb. Sun and Shade Central Grass Seed is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dave L I used the Pennington seed on 1/2 my heavily shaded yard and Scott's EZ Seed on the other 1/2. The Pennington germinated in 2 weeks. The Scott's seed never germinated. I returned the Scotts bags to Home Depot, got a full refund, and reseeded the bare side of my yard with Pennington Smart Seed. It is all thick and green now. I won't waste my time ever again with Scott's seeds.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Since crabgrass is technically a grass I had a 15 ft by 15 ft bare spot in my backyard under an oak tree. Bought a bag and got good results! I then cleared out some brush and spread another bag of see since it did good, had some really cold days after that seeding so it took it a little longer to start growing. Well, it has been a couple of months now and cut it a few times, and now where I seeded there is more crabgrass than anything. Looks like I will be starting over. If you want green in brown areas, this stuff is great. If you want good real grass, then go with something different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow these steps for a beautiful lawn!! Needed seed for area after digging up sod b/c a underground drainpipe was clogged up. Put this seed down to try and cover the area and did not use a spreader, spread by hand, no fertilizer; put it down last Wednesday and by yesterday, Monday, 5 days after planting, I had growth. Not real thick yet, but it hasn't even been a week yet. Very pleased. All I did was water ONCE A DAY, not 2 or 3 times ,like some people on here have said, for about 45 mins to an hour, along with watering the rest of my lawn, and it came up with no problem whatsoever. Easy!! Did not cover with straw, and birds did not eat the seed. Could not have been easier. One 7 lb bag is a lot of seed, and I was also able to spread to some other thin areas of my lawn( every piece of sod does not always root), and those areas are filling in nicely as well. My lawn is a zoysia lawn, and this grass seed is mixing in nicely and the zoysia should help fill in all of these areas eventually. All in all, very pleased with this product, and in fact will be buying more to seed the areas of my property that do not have grass right now( I have a very big yard, and put down sod to cover maybe 75%), and as long as I keep it watered, there should be no problem having a nice beautiful lawn . You will not be disappointed . By the way, I live in upstate South Carolina, where it gets pretty hot in the summer, and the seed is doing just fine. FYI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stayed green all summer in our heat. And stays green in winter. No more winter seeding. Soft, comfortable to walk on. Way better than scotts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From dirt to GREEN lawn in 8 days! I followed the directions on the package (using a starter fertilizer) and on day 7 there were sprout of grass popping up everywhere. By the end of the next day the yard was almost completely green with grass. ...and I do not have a green thumb.
