Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Belechick Do it right the first time
Vigoro Contractor's Mix has always been my first choice for overseeding, and most recently, for a new lawn after a construction project. Follow the instructions, water it daily (just to get the seed wet, not to drench it), and you'll be amazed in 10 days (see my 10 day photo starting with bare loam).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kiki LOTS OF GROWTH IN JUST 6 DAYS!
I thought it would take me a month of waiting to post this review but look how much grass has grown in just 6 days! Needless to say I am very happy and it is not even planting season. The bag says the best time is spring or fall. The conditions right now are actually not favorable and yet it is really thriving. I do plan on repeating it in the fall under the right conditions. Whether you need some patching up, filling in or just a new lawn, this seed works great. I love that it is a combination of different grasses too. So far the color is a nice rich green and it hasn't even fully sprouted. I highly recommend ! Just follow the directions on the bag. Couldn't be easier!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a4andrew vibrant and growth as expected
Here in the MD suburbs close to DC, I planted the grass seed in the cool mid-autumn (Oct 11, temps averaging about 65 for the highs - which is the low end of the recommended temperature to sow the seed), tilling the dirt and mixing in manure with humus, watering it with sprinklers twice a day for 15 minutes, and it green carpet spouted after 7 days. It is a very vibrant green. And with the warm spell in the last 3 days, it has grown a lot. I'll fertilize it again with organic fertilizer after 3 or 4 weeks after initial seeding, and hope that it keeps for the winter. This is good stuff, just make sure you maintain it properly according to recommendations.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bill This seed mix contains 50% Panterra rye grass. 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheRiz Best Seed I've used.
Vigoro Contractors All Purpose Grass Seed is the Best seed I've ever used. I worked up the island in front of my house after several attempts to seed had failed. I then thought how do they get grass to grow on construction sites without sod. Then I seen Vigoros Contractor
Seed and I tried it. It Worked. I have a beautiful thick plush lawn. It also works great on bare spots and repairs. Great Product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom79 Reliable seeds
I tend to be skeptical of products that "work everywhere in every conditions" but I have used these "contractor" seeds in the past and always have good results. Following winter, my lawn needed some slight repairs. I simply raked a bit, added some compost, seeded, and watered three times a day. After a week, germination is well under way. I regularly buy Vigoro products, such as vegetable and herbs plants, and I am always happy with their products. This is a good size bag of seeds: don't hurt your back!
