Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by throgmo Stover Bonsai 3000 seed - worked very well for us.
Unsure of the diff between Stover Bonsai "2000" and "3000", but we got the "3000" at our local HD store. There was no Bonsai 2000 on the shelf, only the 3000. Bag looks different, but Stover is the brand and it's dwarf tall fescue. So: we tore out our old lawn, put down 2" of topsoil, seeded, and raked it over with soil in Sept 2015. Didn't get too tensed up about bag instructions, just put down the seed, raked it over, and kept it moist. No fertilizer. Seedlings started coming up in a week. Slowly filled out over the wet, mild winter (we're in western WA). Come spring, it took off. We commenced with professional fertilizing & weed treatment. By April it was gorgeous - thick and deep green. With regular watering, mowing, fertilizer (quarterly), it's is unchanged despite weeks of 85+ degrees. Know this: MUST be mowed tall - 4" minimum. Google Maps satellite pics confirm: we've the greenest lawn for miles around. No complaints here.

Location ; Fresno , Cal.
Summer of 2015 , I hand tilled my small old lawn with a shovel, cleaned out weeds and old grass.
At about spade depth . I added Gypsum and Soil Topper (lots of Hard pan ).
Mid September I planted Stover Bonsai 3000 with 5% mini Clover . Within a week the lawn was sprouting .
Now it is May 2016 and the lawn is lush and full. However the lawn needs to be mowed about
every ten days or so.
Feels nice to walk on barefoot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DYIuser It is total failure
Grass did not grow. I spent ots of water keot soil wet did njot help. I even soaked seeds in water whole night before putting seed down and keepwater it. Did not help. Scott seed is much much better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DocTom Horrible results
Extensive soil preparation with Scott's planting soil, seeded, then covered with Scott's again. Seed came up in 10 days and attained 3+ inches in 3 weeks. After the first mowing, the fescue died! and now has mostly died out completely. Must water at least 3 times per week to maintain adequate color, however it is systematically dying to the ground and now reviving. Not a good product at all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Klyzman Did not work
Used the 5lb. bag of this product & had a very low % of germination. Followed instructions very closely, & only 30-35 % actually took.

Bought two bags of this grass for overseeding. A month later, I've yet to see *any* germination. Never had grass seed do that to me before. Run far, far away!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Turfnut Great lawn grass!
I have used this seed to patch areas where I have removed crab grass with great results. I live in the desert area of Eastern Oregon and need a product that will thrive in the deep sandy soils here. I use twice weekly irrigation and find that is sufficient even for starting seed, if there is some existing grass cover for shade. This grass is fine bladed with a deep green color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sammie Better than Marathon!
I planted this seed in my back yard and it turned out excellent! It even looks better than my front marathon yard. If your looking for a grass that stands up to the heat of summer it did great for us.
