What types of grasses (and in what percentages if possible) come in the Pennington Smart Seed Sun and Shade North Grass Seed?

Asked by: Sunny
You need to read the label because it tells the percentage of each mixture in the seed bag.

When do I put down

I live in north Texas and am wondering what the best times are for spreading this seed
Asked by: SueinDenton
Grass seed grows better if you put it down in the early spring or late fall.

I already have a lawn established but it is patchy in some spots. Do I still need to cover the seed or listen the soil?

Asked by: Jay
Yes, it germinates better if you put a little straw over the patchy spots. Be sure to water every day the first week to keep the seed damp, enabling it to germinate quicker.

Pennington vs Vigoro Shade grass seed. 1st of all, forget the Scotts EZ Seed. There's a class action lawsuit pending on how this one doesn't do what they advertise. The grass in my front yard had died from who knows what so we had to start over. As much as we could control this test, we put equal amounts of soil and seed on each plot and added water. The Pennington brand came out best with a full thick carpet and healthy green. It took 2 more days than the Vigoro to grow but the results are much nicer. The Vigoro looks splotchy with some yellowing areas. It also didn't cover the other native grass like the Pennington did. You can find Pennington on sale at the same price as Vigoro if you catch it right.

Covered with peat moss, watered daily, and NOTHING! Used regular Lesco Tall Fescue on the rest of my yard, which came up beautifully. Don't waste your money on this "smart seed".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend the seed. We have used this grass seed in the past with great results. We re-landscaped an additional area using the same Sun and Shade North grass seed, again with outstanding results. We were very fortunate that we had mother nature on our side providing timely rain falls to augment the fast growth of the seed. We have had to cut the area four times since the planting.We overseeded other areas in the yard resulting in a lush lawn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best grass seed yet! I have tried several grass seeds over the years and this year I tried three seperate ones. This seed had less filler and more seed than any of the others. It germinated quickly even though the ground was cool. I kept it damp and it grew quickly without any weeds. I had thick grass in about two weeks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good then Bad I overseeded and patched bare areas with the sun & shade mix in May'15. The seed germinated beautifully in ~10 days and stayed strong throughout all of '15. I was excited! Fast forward to '16 and ALL of the grass from this seed died over the winter. The winter in my area was one of the mildest in years. I also patched bare areas with Jacklin Seed grass seed and those survived the winter and look better than nearly all of my lawn. Lesson learned: buy cheap Pennington seed and pay the price.

Put down seed in September 2016 in St. Louis MO to fill in some bare spots that I have had trouble growing other seed in during the past spring. Prepared soil with hard rake and covered seed with topsoil. Watered twice daily keeping ground moist but not so much that it would form puddles. Seed germinated within first 10 days. About a month later it grew to be very nice and full.
