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!

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.

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.

I have given this seed a week more than the label said it takes for the seeds to germinate and start growing. Only about 1/4 of the seeds have started growing. I followed all the directions on the label except for fertilizing which I had done a couple of weeks before planting them, including the bare spots which I was trying to fill in. Either some of the seeds were not good or it might be that the ground is too hard and the seeds can't grow through it. The ground here is pretty hard. I did till one inch of the soil but as I watered it or it rained, the soil kind of packed down again, so that may be the problem. I'll try again in the fall when it cools down some.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by msd Nice quick growing seed -
I planted this seed next to other types of seed mixes which supposedly were better for quick growing. Well this seed did just as good and mixed mulch/seed and fertilizer versions. It came up within 5 days of planting (sprouted) and it seems like most of the planting was successful in starting up. I watered this during 70-90 degree days about every other day, and it is doing fine. Most is coming up seeming very healthy with nice long young shoots all over the place. I of course cannot tell how it will do over the full summer yet, but with my limited watering it does not seem to be bothered by hot sunny conditions. I am happy about that as I do not like excess watering of my lawn to try to make grass seeds which belong in wet southern environments work up here in the New England areas. Once this is established I look forward to not paying any real attention to it. And if the early start is indicative, this should be a very easy lawn to maintain.

I'm using this in my yard which was once a cow pasture and full of field grass. So you can see I have my work cut out for me. It's grown in most places I planted it, some places in my yard are just compacted clay and it's hard to get grass seed to grow there. Where it is growing, it's making a nice fine blade that should create a nice mat for walking on.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Good grass seed
This grass seed started growing quickly and filled in the places in my yard that had gone bare. It needed to be watered as recommended. It blended in well with the other grass already growing. Hopefully it will withstand the heat and dryness that we normally get in the summer. Up to this point I am satisfied with how this grass is growing. Couldn't ask for more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo Great lush green grass
This Vigoro Tall Fescue grass seed produces healthy tall lush green grass. It is a perfect seed to re-seed a new lawn or in my case I am over seeding areas that were damaged over this past winter and last years growing seasons. Big bug problem mainly, They simply destroyed large areas all over my front and backyard lawns. This new Vigoro Tall Fescue grass is taking hold and growing perfectly. Here in the Northeast United States the weather has been about 10-15 degrees colder than in past late April and much wetter the past few weeks have not seen much sunshine at all. But the grass seed still is thriving and growing very nice. I layered good lawn topsoil and fertilized along with the Tall fescue seeds and my lawn is getting to be the deepest green, and most lush lawn on the block. I am very happy and must admit I purchase and use many products from Home Depot that carry the Vigoro name. It is quality that I come to rely on for all my lawn and weed and bug problems. Great grass seed Vigoro Two Green thumbs up.. !!
