Customer Questions & Answers

Does Vigoro grass seed need to be covered?

I am overseeding my lawn and used several bags of Vigoro grass seed a few days ago. I noticed in the directions there's no mention of covering the seed with dirt or mulch after planting. I've read some articles that say it should be covered and some that don't. Is Vigoro seed different from other brands? Will the seeds germinate this way? Thanks.
Asked by: steve
I rented a spreader and covered the whole area with steer manure to keep the birds away and the manure adds nutrients to the soil. You probably do not even need fertilizer.

I have some bare spots in my lawn. After scratching them to make porous and applying the seed, do I have to use a cover product?

20 lb. Grass Tall Fescue Seed
Asked by: SoCal
If you plan on regular watering, I would simply rake the loose seed into the soil. If you do not plan much water, then I would use perhaps some chopped up or loosely spread straw to help maintain the moisture in the soil. The straw will rot away, and if you get real straw, there should be limited straw seed in it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Impressed 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 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoping for Grass 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 5 out of 5 by from The Grass is Greener on the Other side !!!! 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.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revolutionary Turf Product -- Tall Fescue that REPAIRS itself. As a professional Landscape Architect in Nebraska, THIS is the only turf I use now. That is because, Rhizominous Turf-Forming (RTF) Tall Fescue is the Holy Grail of turf advancement that brings this turfgrass to the front of the pack -- bar none. You get all of the VIRTUES of Tall Fescue -- drought tolerance, disease resistance, and no more grub problems; that are all too common with bluegrass. But most importantly, it is the regenerative capacity that allows RTF Tall Fescue to literally repair itself and fill-in bare spots -- being the dream of all homeowners who don't want to spend lots of money renovating their lawn every few years. I consistently see the best results with this turfgrass and it is the only seed mix I use now. As they say: "the proof is in the pudding." You can't go wrong with this product. BRAVO to Vigoro !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Under Rated 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.
