Will the grass only last a year?

I am trying to choose a grass seed to fix my lawn which was ravaged by grubs and harsh sun. I applied Bayer 24 hour grub killer today to kill any gruvs and will also put down GrubEx (its May) to kill the grubs for next season. I want to seed the lawn so it will grow in the spots which the grubs killed but a few articles I read online mentioned that this Vigoro grass had a lot of annual seed in it, which only grows for the year and will need to be re-seeded next year. Is there a better seed I can buy that will not only last one season in the Northeast? (I planted Scotts last year and was very underwhelmed by the percent of the seeds that did not germinate ... and they wriggled out of their 'no quibble guarantee' which means I will never buy another of their products, so no more Scotts seeds for me). Any recommendations would be welcome.

I had this concern but it came back beautifully even after this past, harsh Idaho winter. It even says 40% (something) like that is just an annual and it still did fine.

is this a good for pets ? i cant seem to keep grass in my yard with my dogs .

Asked by: needsgrassthissummer
Pets are probably going to be hard on all lawns but this seed mix is probably a little above average for durability, especially for a reasonably fine, tall growing grass (unlike a coarse Fescue).

20 lb. Grass Contractor's All-Purpose Seed is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vigaro Grass seed My one section of yard by my porch needed some healthy grass growth and this seed once set in place took a few days to begin germinating but numerous small patches are beginning to sprout up and hopefully I will finally have a nice area of healthy grass. There is more than enough grass seed to do my entire yard if I want to and which I make just to add some more bulk to my yard. So far I am satisfied.

In fact the 3rd planting was in late October in Idaho and both plantings (the other in mid-September) were successful. Even before Winter the September planting was lush and beautiful. I had lots of people ask me how we got our lawn looking so nice so fast. I purposely waited a couple of seasons to review this because I was concerned about the percentage of seed that was not perennial. As it turned out both years the lawn has come back great in the Spring and this past winter was unusually hard on lawns. We continue to get comments about how well "we" grow a lawn but it is mostly the seed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only meant to last one season They need to label these bags better ... I looked all over the bag and couldn't find the words 'annual vs. perrenial'. Turns out that this grass is good for one season and then it dies and needs to be replanted. By that time, Vigoro comes out with a new bag or a slightly different mix and as such the previous owners 5 star reviews of the product are void because new customers are looking at the newer product. If you are looking to fill patches or need a quick lawn and don't mind going through the incredible hassle of regrowing a lawn each season, this would be good for you. It grows fast as long as you give it constant water and it's fairly good looking ... Maybe a bit brighter green than I'd prefer. But ... I will say that it grows very easily. And temporarily. For those looking for a seed that lasts season to season (as most probably are) ... This is NOT your seed!! If it said on the bag 'Fast growing beautiful grass that lasts an entire season' I never would have bought 3 bags. I'd have looked for a returning seed. It should be noted that not only do you have to do every step again ... Add one more step of taking out all the dead grass from last season which is not easy to do. Then, regrow your lawn. More work!! Shame on this company for not more clearly labeling the product. As for 50% annual vs. perrenial seeds ... I found the entire area died after last year. Not just half. What's the good of repairing a lawn that was ravaged by grubs if you just have to keep doing it (and more) each year. If you need a green lawn in a quick time (if you are selling your house or having a lawn party) this would be good for you. If you want nice, season to season grass ... Skip this stuff!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good blend of grass seed at a reasonable price. I can say that this blend of grass seed is a good mixture of types of seed. It has 30% annual seed and that means that it will come up quickly, but not next year. The rest of the seed types are perrenial which means that it will come up next year. You will most likely have to over seed next year. If you need grass in a hurry and don't mind a little re-seeding this is an economical way to go. To plant just read the very simple instructions on the bag and follow them and you will have good results. If you want to compare grass seed ALWAYS TURN THE BAG OVER AND LOOK FOR THE CHART WITH THE BLEND OF SEED. DO NOT BUY A BAG WITH ANY WEED SEEDS AS YOU WILL ONLY FIND OUT WHAT THEY ARE AFTER THE WEEDS ARE GROWING AND THEY MAY BE VERY HARD TO GET THEM UNDER CONTROL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Seed Just spread this seed in a heavy traffic area that the doggies love. Too early to tell results and will update review after a month. I have always had good results with Vigoro products including their fertilizer and seed.Last year added some fill to low areas on my property and then Vigoro starter fertilizer and seed.As usual happy with results.Its nice to save a few bucks and get a good product.

It is an annual grass which means it will only grow for one year and then die. If you put this seed down in the fall, in New England, half of it won't come back in the spring so it's a waste of time and money. I didn't realize this so now I have to re-seed in the spring. After some research I read that Panterra rye grass was developed for Texas winters because their summer grass goes dormant in the winter. This shouldn't be sold in the NorthEast in the Fall.

Do not waste your time, effort and money on this seed that looks like pasture after you plant it. We had some bare areas in our lawn and grabbed a bag of the Vigaro contractor blend to fill them in. We worked up the areas, planted the seed and watered it. Only half of the seed sprouted but at the time we didn't realize that was the least of our problems. The seed grew and looked ok when it was real young. After a few months we noticed it was growing really fast and very thick bladed. Our other lawn seed is thick and dark green and only needs to be mowed every week and a half. This contractor blend from Vigaro is light colored, very thick bladed and sparse. It needed to be mowed every two days or looks like a pasture. It never looked thick like a lawn should. We could not tolerate it any longer so after less than a year we killed it all off and are going to start all over. This is about a third of an acre so a major waste of time, money and energy. I think this is probably some genetically modified garbage that has no substance even when it grows. Hope that helps save some people from this terrible seed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Takes longer than3 days If you wish growth in 3 days, one might consider seed encapsulated in a fertilizer shell. Its 3 full days and no grass yet.
