The Rebels Tall Fescue grass seed is a tough, high quality turf grass that is designed to produce a beautiful lawn that can withstand heavy traffic, insects, and drought. The Rebels Extended Roots seed varieties maximize a lawn's ability to thrive, even under the toughest summer conditions. The Rebels Tall Fescue grass seed grows up to 40% more roots than ordinary grass at deeper depths for excellent drought resistance and nutrient uptake, helping your lawn thrive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Yard in 25 Years We have lived in this home for almost 25 years. and this is the best our yard has ever looked. First time I have overseeded with Rebels. Thick, lush, deep green color. Very pleased with the results! October 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best lawn ever. The Rebel Grass seed is ideal for the Georgia climate. I have had excellent results with the Rebel seed; it is my preferred seed. November 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent results It takes awhile for seed to germinate so be patient. It won't disappoint you. However, once the grass sprouts it comes up thickly in a beautiful dark green shade. I've had trouble growing grass from seed before. With The Rebel Tall Fescue Mix I have a beautiful lawn which is the envy of the neighborhood. I highly recommend this product. I used a grass starter and peat moss with this product with excellent results. October 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Value The retail package was sewn into a woven plastic sack for shipping. This is a good thing since rough handling caused the corners of the retail package to burst and allow the grass seed to spill out. The spillage was contained by the outer sack. Buying 40lbs via HD website, with free shipping, is the least expensive option I’ve found for name brand grass seed. Will probably buy more in the spring. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty lawn I had excellent germination planting in late fall in TN. Pretty dark green color. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grass Seed For Dummies I have used a lot of different brands and have never had an experience like this before in my life. I planted it about a year ago and this grass came in thick and lush and was the only grass in my neighborhood to withstand the summer heat. It is refreshing to find a product that lives up to it's claims. I have used Scott's Turf Builder before but now it is only 1/2 seed and the performance is less then desirable. I am a Rebel fan for life!!! October 5, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good! It rated high on national turf trials so I spent the extra money over the cheaper tall fescue. I am two weeks in and have a great start. Only 5 days to germinate and see sprouts. Soil quality seems to make a big difference so get good stuff down first. Kept it watered well every day the first week and have consistent medium green blades coming up nicely, no weeds. So far I really like the look of the grass. Hope it holds well but only time will tell if its better than the cheaper stuff. October 9, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by fair growth the seed was hard to come up by over seeding i guess if you cultivated the yard and the planted and covered it would come up . It is hard to disc up your lawn to over seed bare spots. October 21, 2014
