Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AgentYork Bad reviews had me skeptical
I am new to the PNW from Arizona. Never had to deal with grass. The grass at our rental was terrible so I decided to experiment with someone else's lawn. So I researched it all. Thatch, aerate, grass length, killing moss (that stuff is terrible), soil conditions, drainage, ideal temperatures, and more. To apply these seeds I completed (the boy scouts in my neighborhood) the thatch and aerate job. Applied about a half inch of dirt and applied seeds based on spreader setting requirements. I made sure the weather forecast for the next week was within the recommended temperature - 60 to 80 degrees. Once on the ground I kept it wet, short watering 2-3 times a day. The lawn is thick and putting my neighbors to shame. Use this seed right and it will do everything promised.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sweetiepeas Looking good so far
I planted new seed on May 13th, by May 23rd I had several areas that were 2" long and some that were just peeking through the soil.
I thatched and aerated my lawn, spread fertilizer, seed and then covered with peat moss. I watered daily unless it rained.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JDunk I am totally satisfied
I was reluctant after reading the reviews. I live in western Washington and have been less then impressed with other brands. This product is awesome!! Yes it's slow to germinate but that's what the package said. I could not be happier

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FD903 Worked well
I used this seed over Labor Day weekend (temperature has been 70's high to mid 40's lows) Seeded a new lawn, 3-4 inches of new top soil, spread the recommended starter ferterlizer, then seed, used sprinkler system to water 3-4 times a day. 5-6days later saw seeds sprouting, 4 weeks into it, grass is 3 inches tall in most areas. I had a couple of bald spots but attribute that to spreading and birds eating seed. Overall really pleased with product and feel it peforms as advertised.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phatty057 planted late October, sprouted in 10 days
tilled up the ground after killing old lawn, scrapped off the dead clumps and leveled it out. Used two 20lb bags on my front lawn (incase some washed away) It's Oregon and you know how it dumps rain here. 10 days later in the morning sun it was lime green and starting to grow.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CB Spring Showers didn't bring green grass
Purchased the product supposedly especially formulated for the Pacific Northwest, despite the fact that it was quite a bit more expensive than their competitor's brand, and because of the Scott brand name reputation for quality. Prepared the yard and soil according to their directions, sowed the seed, and watered again according to directions. Seed is supposed to sprout "in 5-10 days. It has been more like three weeks, and despite the fact that the rest of the yard is green, and the old grass is coming up fine, not one seed has sprouted nor any new growth started. Very disappointed in the product, and wishing we could get our investment back. Cannot afford more product right now, but will likely use a competitor's next time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GrasslessinSeattle Very slow to germanite if at all
To germinate or not to germanite, the answer appears to be not.
I estimate that less than 40% has germinated in idea grass growing weather. Very disappointed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doc52 veryslow to germinate
I have used this product 3 or 4 times in my yard since I purchased the bag of seed. It's very slow to germinate, not 5-10 as advertised. Germination is probably 50% or less and more like 3 weeks. If the weather holds and if you don't get too much rain, if does not get too hot or too cold, if---if---if. I usually look for Scott products, but this one is a disappointment for me.
