Answer: 
You could use the ( about $10.00 one time fee ) Vigoro 6 lb. Handheld Spreader. I would also get Scotts Green Max for Lawns to lay down with the seed. Follow manufacturer's directions.

Answer: 
I just used a hand spreader set to the highest density as I wanted thick coverage. But, my yard is not all that big, Large yards might be better suited to using a spreader with wheels that can be pushed along.

Answer: 
Hello,
Each bag of grass seed lists our recommended settings for a variety of broadcast, drop and hand-held spreaders. Broadcast spreaders are best for covering large areas while drop and hand-held spreaders are designed for smaller or more precise applications.

Answer: 
Most Pennington I have used in Houston, TX ( even during drought ) has stayed green with minimal water and regular care. Part of that care is using an item like Scotts Green Max Southern Lawn Fertilizer.

Scotts EZ Seed Sun & Shade (New Formula)
Grows Anywhere, Guaranteed (subject to proper care)
Improved formula reduces seed wash-away and even grows on slopes and hills
Super absorbent mulch holds 6x it's weight in water keeping your seed from drying out and dying out
For sunny, densely shaded, or high traffic areas
1. PREP - Simply prepare the area you want to grow grass. Remove dead grass and loosen hard soil to help tiny seedlings root.
2. APPLY - Evenly apply EZ Seed so the area is mostly covered, but bare ground is still visible. (Use half as much for thin areas). Only apply the recommended amount so that seedlings have enough space to access water and nutrients.
3. WATER - A deep and thorough initial watering is the key to success. Gently water the area until EZ Seed is completely saturated and no more water is being absorbed (this may take several minutes). Continue to water daily or as needed to keep the soil surface moist until the seedlings reach at least 2 inches tall.
When to Apply
Fall and Spring are the best times to plant EZ Seed® because the seed germinates best when daytime temperatures are between 60°F and 80°F.
Approximate Coverage Area
3.75 lb: 85 sq ft
10 lb.: 225 sq ft
14.5 lb: 325 sq ft
20 lb: 445 sq ft
40 lb: 890 sq ft
Look in your local Home Depot store for the item above Read Less

Hello,
We do recommend using a quality fertilizer such as Ultragreen Lawn Food (SKU# 136-450) with Pennington Smart Seed. The fertilizer will give the new seedlings the nutrients needed to grow.

Answer: 
Hi RP,
This is a mix of grass seed that has been blended to give you the best results possible. There is no filler, such as fertilizer or mulch in the bag.
Starter fertilizer should be applied when you apply the seed to your lawn. The extra phosphorus in Starter Fertilizer helps to promote new root growth.
Thank you for asking,
-Travis

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Weed Seed Should change the name to CRABGRASS SEED. Never had crabgrass until I used this seed in a shady area, now I have nothing but crabgrass. Thanks for the great crop of crabgrass, just what I wanted(not) August 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money As long as you keep the ground wet it will keep growing. Couple of dry days and it starts to die out & turn brown. It states that it is drought tolerance. It is for a couple days. The package states it grows anywhere. Not true. July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good choice The grass germinated well and is currently growing. It hasn't reached the height for mowing, but that should occur soon. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Grass seed I grew a tray of this seed within a jiffy seed tray with lid under grow lights to seed what this would do under perfect conditions. WOW! Great results. Just look at the picture. April 8, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pennington seed Very pleased with the growth of this seed. It was planted in a hard to grow area and did very well considering the poor conditions. November 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice purchase This seed germinates very well and comes up nice and dark green as long as you give it the proper watering so I don't understand a couple of reviews that say their not getting any growth.They have too be doing something wrong with either the soi contact or over or under watering.Waiting long term to see if it stays as nice.I would say it is a very nice seed but at $4 dollars a pound it should be.I like everything about it so far but would still like to see it a little cheaper.Talk to other growers and they tell me anything over $2.50 a pound is a little steep.I hope a year from now can still recommend this product. October 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great lawn! Very easy to use and covered the shaded areas that had been growing Bermuda. July 1, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't waste your money Wasted my money on this seed. Did everything exactly as directed. No grass has grown. Wasted 6 weeks and a lot of money. Don't make those same mistakes. May 18, 2015
