Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LordHighPluckett Worked great in my heavily shaded lawn.
Had a rough winter this year and I have two very large dogs who tore up the lawn. Took those two problems as an excuse to patch/re-seed my lawn. Front and rear lawn are covered by trees of varying densities and see sunlight steadily for just a few hours a day.
Applied dense-shade mix as instructed after aerating and applying compost layer to lawn. I then fertilized with SCOTTS lawn-starter fertilizer. New seedlings started to appear after 2 weeks and everything looks fantastic now as I enter week 6 of project. Lawn is lush and green and looks like a carpet.
PRO TIP: Water every day. EVERY DAY. No excuses. You will see much better results.

I tried other types and this one actually works for me. The shady area of my yard was basically dirt and moss, but now after applying these seeds according to the instructions. I have beautiful grass growing as of two weeks.

I live in southeastern Wisconsin. I applied early this spring. I went over my back yard with a dethatcher first, then applied this grass seed and applied topsoil over some of the completely bare spots. My back yard is almost completely filled in now with thriving grass. It's very shady back there, so I'm surprised it worked but it did. Very nice grass.

Planted in the spring and followed the directions and the results were disappointing. I have a densely shaded area and the grass didn't produce except in a few small areas. I have used Scott products all my life but this didn't live up to the expectations.

I purchased this grass seed, 3 week ago, did all the right thing to install grass to a shady area in my back yard, I water 2 a day, I have yet to see even a blade of grass, what am i doing wrong or is it the grass seed? so very disappointing, I brought 2 bags and this wasn't cheap bags.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jtomsh Expensive, but did the job.
I have always loved by Scott products. With the Scotts lawn soil, this seed came up as described and is now thick and strong.
I highly recommend the two together. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
