Answer: 
First off, where you live makes a difference. In the south I would say ok, but make sure that you don’t get the winterize with the "halts" it will kill the seeds. In the mid west, I would plant the seed and use the winterize then in the spring, use the starter fertilizer to kick it in gear. It should shoot up. I planted this product in the early fall and mixed the seed with fescue. I mixed the fertilizer Read More
First off, where you live makes a difference. In the south I would say ok, but make sure that you don’t get the winterize with the "halts" it will kill the seeds. In the mid west, I would plant the seed and use the winterize then in the spring, use the starter fertilizer to kick it in gear. It should shoot up. I planted this product in the early fall and mixed the seed with fescue. I mixed the fertilizer with a winterize and a starter fertilizer, all Scotts products. I am waiting till spring to see what happens. I can see that the bluegrass is starting to sprout, but I think it will really kick in come spring. In the East and Northern areas, I would wait till spring to do anything. Put the seed down then a winterized fertilizer. I wouldn’t do anything else till spring. Hope this helps. I am a mid western person so I know what grows and when here. I lived in the south and we used another brand of seed that was specifically for that area that grew like wild fire, but that was about it. Read Less

Answer: 
Be careful not apply seed and fertilizer\weed killer at the same time. Seed does best in Spring April (midwest) and fall Sept typically. IF you apply too late (Oct) it typically is not as successful to germinate due to cold snaps.
Scotts yellow late April, green-crabgrass May, Summerguard in June, then Winterizer October.

Answer: 
You can apply the Turf Builder Winterguard Fall Lawn Food now if you have not fertilized in the last 6 weeks. Apply Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass in the spring if you do sow seed during the dormant season.

Howdy Cass,
According to the manufacturer, this seed has been treated with mefenoxam which can be poisonous irritant if inhaled or if skin/eyes come in contact with.
Happy seeding,

Answer: 
This is a cool season grass type, which is better suited to cooler climates found in the northern part of the country. You would be better suited with a warm season grass type such as bermuda, centipede, zoysia or St. Augustine grass types.

If you want bluegrass to really grow you need to sprinkle some dirt over the seeds like confectioner sugar otherwise it becomes bird seed. Don't use the cheap dirt either full of rock, sand, and twigs, spring for the Scott's or other mid-upper range real dirt. Good luck.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nothing but weeds Tilled my soil, spread it out, covered it, and watered to keep it moist. Waited for over a month for something to sprout up. When it did, it was nothing but weeds! My backyard may look green, but it is not bluegrass! July 6, 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 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 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 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 Beautiful grass blend The grass mixture took a little longer than usual to come up, approx. 3 weeks. However, once it did grow in it matched my sod perfectly. September 10, 2015
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
