Waiting for results but I do not see any reason why this seed would not work. I just did my whole back yard. I tilled the soil to about 1 to 1-1/2 in. deep removing all the old grass and weeds. I then leveled the soil then packed it down with a water roller so when the new grass grows there are no hills and valleys. Now I used number 5 on my hand spreader to put down the seed then number 4 to lay down the starter fertilizer on top of the seed then I used a wheeled spreader to cover the whole area with steer manure to keep the birds away., I am watering the area twice a day every day for at least 2 weeks to start. There is a large shade tree in my back yard so the total area is only half covered in shade.

Excellent product.... I had an area next to my pizza oven where I had wood piled for the longest time. I did a quick cleanup and raking of the area added some top soil mixed it in and raked it out... Im very impressed with this seed,, First time I've ever had real grass growing in less than 5 days.. It came in full and rich.. Just plenty of water not even that much sun.. the spot where its growing only gets about 4-5 hours of sun a day. It also worked great on small areas of lawn that needed patching.. Filling in nice and even with good color. I think its a great product for a very good price.....

We live in Pennsylvania so I'm not sure if this grass seed is meant for our area or not. However after living in our house for nearly a year we realized that our yard is extremely rocky and hard. Our lawn up till now is nothing to speak of (as you will see in the photos), it seems to be a mixture of a little grass and hard dirt! So we picked an area to begin overseeding with Vigoro hoping that we too can have a beautiful lush lawn! The seed is in and it has been raining straight for the past couple of weeks so we are hopeful to have signs of growth as soon as the sun breaks through! Fingers are crossed!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LosRubios Germinates quickly and grows well
We live in the hills outside Los Angeles, so we have a hot dry summer and mild winters. We were looking for some grass seed to fill in a bare dirt pathway that has been caused by walking between our rear door and the garage and this did the trick.
Since the ground is quite hard, I used a rototiller to break up the surface, raked it smooth and took out the larger stones and then tilled in some steer manure to make the new grass seeds less enticing for the birds. Spreading the seed was easy enough and we kept it watered every couple of days while the seeds were germinating and taking hold. I thought I may need to cover it with a clear plastic sheet however the steer manure seemed to keep the birds away.
The new grass is partially covered by tree shade for some of the day however the grass seems to be established and growing well after three months with a light watering every weekend. Very pleased with the results.

I live in Arkansas and have a yard that has both shade and sun. Last year we were out of town on vacation and our Orbit automatic water timer broke and we ended up with a large area that died as well as several small patches. I purchased a couple bags of Scotts Grow Anywhere patch for the spots and two 20lbs bags of Vigoro Tall Fescue seed. I prepared the large area and the spots according to the directions on the bags. I even put down several bags of soil and worked it into the ground to make a nice bed for the seed. Two weeks later the patches have grown to over 4" tall and have filled in but the area where the Vigoro is has yet to produce a single blade of grass. I will be buying several bags of Scotts Grow Anywhere Patch to cover the area since I know it grows.

I purchased two bags of these products expecting a green thick lawn later in the year and nothing grew. Its like both bags were full of bad seeds.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NTD good product, but not heat tolerant
I like this product, but the manufacturer needs to find a way to strengthen the seed so it can withstand heat and humidity. I live in the Maryland area, and we recently had a heat wave. Despite a constant effort to water the grass two to three times a week, I still end up with brown spots all over.

The Vigoro 20 lb. Grass Tall Fescue Seed is definitely a product that needs to be considered when any person living in a more northern climate is planting a new lawn or restoring an old one. I have used it many different times over the years with great success. It definitely does not contain the highest quality Tall Fescue seed available today, however, for the price that Home Depot is selling a 20lb bag for, it is a good value. I would definitely recommend the Vigoro 20 lb. Grass Tall Fescue Seed to any family member or friend.
