If I am seeding a new lawn Approx 200sqFt. Very small backyard, do I need to feed the new seedlings or the soil prior to seeding?

We live in Central Oregon, our soil is pretty hard but our grass just needs some filling in. It is dry and hot here in the summer. Is this a good choice? when should we lay it down?
Asked by: OREGON
Kentucky Bluegrass performs best in Climate Zone 5 or 6. The best time to plant is early September in your area. Find your Climate Zone Map here: Thank you for asking, -Travis

Is this a good choice

I'm in the inland area of southern California and have a pretty good size back yard with a pool. Couple things fescue is kind of messy with its clumping having a pool hoping this will be a little more of a turf? Actually I get sick of fescue and with the clumping and not being as dense I have to water for long periods of time with fescue 30 minutes every day in summer (and you know our water shortage.) Is this going to be a denser lawn? I know the roots aren't as deep as fescue but if its denser my soil will stay more moist and hold more of the water. Or am I better off finding Zoysia?
Asked by: Brent
If you want a denser turf, you may want to take a look at Scotts Turf Builder Heat and Drought, which is a blend of tall fescue and bluegrass or Turf Builder Zoysia + Mulch. The Heat and Drought blend is durable and heat/drought tolerant, and the bluegrass gives it a terrific appearance. The Zoysia mix, once established, will provide a medium green, fairly dense turf. Either should only require an inch of water a week to maintain, once the new lawn has matured.

What varieties of bluegrass are in this?

I have purchased this in the past, but apparently the mix changes. Since this is a premium blend rather than just generic bluegrass, the percentages in the mix should be listed. For example, I have 2 bags that look identical, but a sticker on the back of one shows types as Abbey, Gaelic, Right, and Jump Start bluegrass varieties. The other changes the mix percentages and adds Juliet bluegrass replacing Gaelic. The variety of bluegrass greatly affects performance so the percentages of each should be shown. Ideally I would like to see a low growing drought resistant bluegrass like Bella included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great seed This seed worked better than expected. It came in well even in spots where I was lax in watering faithfully. I also love the color and texture of grass. It seems hardy. Looking forward to Spring to see what it looks like then Definitely pleased and will purchase again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beginner gardener great results Planted half of their smallest bag first with an orbital spreader. Two weeks later I overseeded the edges by hand and spread the rest on the orbital. 5 weeks later, I can say that I achieved about 95% germination and excellent growth. I just bought another small bag that I will mix with top soil to overseed some areas that need patching (very small areas). I've never grown grass in my life and people told me to go with sod, but this was a very affordable solution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing germinated.....NOTHING! I'm faily new to this stuff but usually pretty good at figuring out this stuff after reading directions and watching a few videos. I bought this at home depot thinking i could help my grass get a bit thicker and fix some dry patches. I used a spreader and went through my lawn once over. I'm surprised that there was absolutely no change in the way the lawn looked. I've seeded new lawns before so i didn't think this would be any different.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Highly recommended and did not germinate I bought Turf Builder Kentucky Bluegrass Seed Mix and did exactly what the directions said to do. It has been over three weeks now and still nothing. It will not germinate so have decided that I will have to start over again. I bought this seed having come highly recommended from friends that have used it and am now very disappointed Sorry to say I will not use this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LoMaintnenance Grows Anywhere Not itchy Nothing else survived the drought in this part of Texas last year. Ppl were selling their herds of cattle; hundred-year-old native trees were dying, nothing survived... and this year, the ONLY thing that came back to life on its own were the areas where we had planted Scott's Turfbuilder Kentucky Bluegrass. And where all the grasses and wildflowers were deeply destroyed by drought, we have seen a mass invasion of new types of weeds. But not in any of the Bluegrass areas: the Bluegrass apparently kept the weeds out. I wish we had planted it everywhere, instead of just in the thin spots. We will re-seed everything with it this year. We love it: kids can play in it and not get all itchy, it's perfect for picnics, it looks great, and it survives every conceivable type of abuse from dogs, horses, chickens and kids. I honestly can't imagine why anyone bothers buying or selling any other kind of grass seed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't germinate after 45 days There are a lot of factors that affect seed germination. That said, I would expect at least something to happen. We had an unseasonably warm start to the spring in south central PA and a ton of rain. About 45 days ago I put down bluegrass seed followed by scotts starter food for new lawns. In bare spots, I also put down scotts top soil before seeding. I watered every day for the first week then let nature take over. In the bare spots where I put top soil down, nothing happened. Looking closer in other areas, the grass seed is still there, not germinated, not growing. My lawn is mostly rye and feacue. Maybe I'll stick with that for the next attempt.
