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.

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.

Used the 5lb. bag of this product & had a very low % of germination. Followed instructions very closely, & only 30-35 % actually took.

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.

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.

I have 3 years experience with Stover Bonsai grass. I wondered what I was doing wrong until I purchased another brand of fescue. Bonsai is inferior in so many ways. It constantly wants watering. It is not suitable for sun and does not do seem to do well in the cold. Requires constant maintenance. It tends to lay down and needs to be raked before mowing. It bunches up like weeds. I just don't understand this hybrid. Buy one of the major brands like Pennington.
