In less than three full months, from dirt to a pretty lush dark green grass. Amazing!
I am no professional, but followed instructions. Planted this in late August in GA. Had to water quite a bit because we had very little rainfall in Aug & Sept. By October we had nice cool weather, and in Nov temps dipped and we had lots of rain. When the temps cooled, grass seed that was dormant started growing like crazy. I had overseeded once, and that seed started to fill in everything nicely. My neighbors are amazed.

Rebel produced the best grass of my experiment. I place three different grass seeds into three seperate jiffy trays, then put on their clear covers. Following this I placed them under grow lights and measured the temp. (78 degrees F). Grass seed must have good soil contact and must remain moist and warm. This experiment place the grass seed in the ideal situation. The Rebel won over the Pennington Smart Seed, but only by a fraction. The Scotts heat tolerant Blue mix looked like the hair on an old man's head. So if you place your REBEL grass seed in the correct enviroment, you will be happy. If your gonna throw your grass seed on bare concrete and then fuss about poor results, then I guess your missing the point that grass is a plant and you must care for it, thusly. Of course, little grass seedlings are delicate. If you let them dry out, they will die and not come back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wemoodydc Great coverage and growth rate
I decided to get some good grass seed to fill in some bare spots in the yard and push back the woods. This seed came recommended and did not disappoint. Filled in the spots and really thrived where the leaves had been at the edge of the woods. I did put out lime and fertilizer, which I believe really helped the new seed get going.
I dinged the value rating because I feel like it is a bit more expensive than it should be. I guess packaging and marketing cost money, though.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Now 50% coating with no explanation of the change
This year's Rebels seed (fall 2015) looked different from my leftover Rebels from last year (fall 2014) -- the seeds this year looked smaller and harder. The plastic bags themselves looked almost exactly the same. The only difference I found was that the newer bag says the seed covers a smaller area of new lawns (but the same area for established lawns). I checked the small stick-on label to see how the seed mix had changed and saw that this year (in contrast to earlier years) the contents are 50% coating. There is no indication or explanation of this change on the plastic bag itself. Perhaps the manufacturer thinks this coating is a good thing, but if so he has not redesigned the bag to describe the advantages (or even the existence) of the coating. I paid a third more this year ($36 in 2014 and $48 in 2015) for half as much actual seed. There were 10 pounds of seed in the 20-pound bag.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuck Great product if used properly
For years I've tried Scotts and other brands. Last spring I used this product and had the best results I've ever had. Grows very thick and green. I just picked up a bag this week to overseed the front lawn for this season. Remember, to get good results you really need seed early in the season and don't forget to water, weed, fertilize, and mow. I learned this from years of trial and error.
