Customer Questions & Answers

I READ A LOT OF GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS STUFF ESPECIALLY IN A VERY HOT SUN. IS IT ALSO GOOD IN SHADES?

I HAVE A BARE SPOT HALF EXPOSED AND HALF SHADED, BUT I WANT TO TRY THIS PRODUCT INSTEAD OF SUNNY AND SHADE.

Can you use this in a sun/shade area near a tree ?

Asked by: LawnGuy805
Turf Builder Heat Tolerant Blue can be used in a sun/shade area. As with any seed it will require at least 4 hours of sunlight to germinate. If you have any additional questions please call 877-220-3089 for assistance.

How long after seeding before kids/dogs can play on it?

Asked by: Jasper
While the grass seed should begin to germinate in 7 - 14 days, keep in mind that after you see initial seedlings, seeds will continue to germinate for another week to 3 weeks. Try to minimize traffic on the newly seeded areas for 30 days or more, if possible. Once the grass has grown enough to have been mowed at least 4 times, your family can enjoy the lawn.

Turf Builder 3 lb. Heat-Tolerant Blue Mix Grass Seed is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seed germinated beautifully!!! I planted this seed in California while the weather was slightly cold. I spread the seeds generously over the area an applied a thin layer of peat moss over the seeds. You want to cover them but not bury to deep. Then water them enough to keep the peat moss moist but not muddy. The peat moss will retain moisture and in no time you will start seeing your seeds germinate and grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong performing grass blend results in neighborhood envy... ;-P If you have FULL SUN and want a green lawn year round, this is the blend. Its super bright green in the spring with small blades of grass mixed with thicker blades, then later in the summer when it is hot and dry the small blade grass goes dormant and the thick grass takes over. For me in Central Ohio I notice a change in early July. It is August now and I have some underlying brown grass but the majority of the lawn is deep green. My neighbors think I water all the time but I am really just watering the flower beds. Cut it higher later in the summer... I planted this lawn 8 years ago and it's stronger than ever. Oh and once you plant it give it a solid year before you give up as it will take a while to get to 100%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neighbors Are Jealous Killed our front yard last year and planted this mix. Lawn was so dark green and thick it choked out any weeds. Especially near my neighbor's lawn who likes to mow short so he can mow every 2 to 3 weeks. Neighbors and people who walk by ask my secret. Front looks so good, we are doing the backyard now. Be sure to put starter fertilizer down at the same time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks like sod was put down Used this grass seed to do a brand new lawn in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in August 2014. By late fall everyone who visited thought we had put down a sodded lawn. We had pretty decent topsoil, with its fair share of weeds that I sprayed a couple of weeks before seeding, and I then loosened the soil with a box grader before seeding. Applied Starter Fertilizer at the same time as the seed, and covered with straw. The lawn initially had plenty of orchardgrass from seedheads in the straw, but it eventually died or was choked out by the good grass. I was able to keep the seed moist during germination using water we collect from our roof, which I believe greatly contributed to the results. The lawn gets full sun most of the day. I have not applied any additional fertizer the first year as all spring and part of the summer I had to mow the lawn twice a week. With summer heat and less rain we are now mowing about every 6 days. The grass is so thick it is hard to separate it with my fingers and get down to the soil. This is without a doubt the nicest lawn we have ever had in almost 50 years of home ownership.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Follow up - August Picture Just cut the grass last night... It's been 90+ for 2 weeks here and the grass is going strong. I have not watered it for 6 weeks. There are brown spots but it is predominately green.
