Answer: 
Just make sure the soil is wet, not that it puddles but you don't want it dry and cracking. If you are really worried or not seeing results you want, maybe add a little potting soil to your top soil as it will have some food for the seeds. but avoid too much fertilizer as most seed is coated in enough of it, you don't want to burn the young grass, and most of all you don't want to give more food for Read More

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?

Answer: 
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 Read More

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 3.2 out of 5 by 103 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Won't Germinate.... This is the second year in a row that I have tried Scott's Kentucky Blue Grass seed and it has once again failed to germinate properly. I power raked my Kentucky Blue Grass thick lawn, removed the thatch. Spread the seed as directed, lightly covered it with top soil. Watered every day and it rained for days an the we had cool weather. Over two weeks now since the first seeking, had to try a second one...and only a sparse amount of seed has started to grow. I am trying a third attempt today and will see if that works. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Well This seed has filled in problem areas of my lawn nicely, but follow the instructions for prep work and watering recommendations for maximum results. September 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not grow! Initial spot planting in bare lawn spots with no growth in 3 weeks. Overplanted areas again and no growth in 2 weeks. I followed the instructions exactly and watered almost everyday. False advertisement for sure. August 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Must babysit this seed If you don't do it right, it won't work. Used tenacity - two applications two weeks apart to kill weeds. Waited two weeks after last application. Mowed lawn as short as possible bagging clippings. Power raked entire lawn then bagged remains. Over seeded with Scott's Kentucky blue grass. Watered lawn twice per day, for 2.5 weeks, then once per day for another 1.5 weeks. (About 15 minutes per area, commensurate with rainfall). Germination rate was highest where there was at least some leftover grass, bare areas germinated least. What the germination rate is, I can't say, I would bet 50-80 percent, but that is a guess. Bluegrass is one of the slowest germinating grasses, requiring constant watering for 3-4 weeks, if you don't want to drag hoses around twice a day, don't buy this seed. June 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 26, 2016
