Asked by: TF
I don't know much about grass seed, but found an article on the Internet that was written by someone who does. According to the article fescue does better in different geographical regions then rye grass and vice-versa. Assume that the mix of fescue and rye is to provide a good grow result under as many conditions as possible (sun and shade and geographic area). Hope that this helps. From an article on Tall Fescue Grass Vs. Perennial Rye Overview Tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) and perennial rye (Lolium perenne) are both cool season grasses commonly grown in areas with cold winters and moderate summers. Both grasses have certain similarities, such as their intolerance to extreme cold, clumping or bunch-like growth habits (due to which they are often referred to as bunch grasses) and ability to withstand some amounts of traffic. However, their differences enable gardeners to select one over the other, according to their climate and growing requirements. Description Tall fescue has flat, broad, dark green leaf blades with visible veins. The leaves are shiny underneath, with serrated edges. It has a coarse texture and deep roots. Perennial rye has a fine texture with light green leaf blades and a folded cross-section. It has a shiny underside and serrated leaf blade tips. Uses Originally used as pasture grass, tall fescue is now grown in some high-traffic areas such as schools and athletic courses, because it has moderate wear-tolerance. Perennial ryegrass, on the other hand, withstands heavy traffic areas such as golf courses, athletic parks, schools and homes. It also grows and spreads quickly, which is why gardeners also grow it temporarily over a spot to provide a quick green cover, while a slower but permanent grass germinates. Geography Tall fescue in thrives in well-drained, clay soils in transition zones (areas in the central U.S. that lie between cool and warm season grasses), or areas that include Maryland, Georgia, parts of Nebraska and Kansas. Perennial ryegrass is best adapted to coastal regions, but grows easily in almost all northern states. However, it becomes dormant in the winter in states such as Montana, Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota, and may even die there. Durability Tall fescue is more drought-resistant than perennial ryegrass because of its deeply embedded roots. It grows in full sunlight to partial shade, but cannot withstand extreme cold. Perennial rye tolerates full sun as well, but lesser shade than tall fescue. It has a low tolerance to extreme cold and drought. According to UC IPM Online, perennial ryegrass has the highest traffic- and wear-tolerance of any of the cool season grasses. Diseases and Pests Although tall fescue is moderately disease-tolerant, it is highly susceptible to fusarium blight, which damages young grasses or lawns planted in the spring. Brown patch and leaf spot damage older fescue lawns. White grubs, cutworms and armyworms are pests that damage tall fescue lawns. Perennial ryegrass is susceptible to ergot, brown blight, leaf spots, snow molds and powdery mildew. Pests such as grubs and Argentine stem weevil cause perennial ryegrass problems Varieties Two of the oldest varieties of tall fescue are Alta and Kentucky-31. Currently, it has more than 60 varieties, out of which Hound Dog, Falcon, Rebel, Olympic, Adventure, Fawn and Goar are a few common ones. Perennial Rye has over 200 varieties available, including blends such as Professional Select.

7 lb. Grass Sun-Shade Lawn Seed is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vigoro Grass Seed I have been using Vigoro Sun and Shade for two years with great luck. The north and west side of my yard only gets about four hours of sun each day. Using Vigoro has helped my lawn considerably. I am now using it on my north side embankment after moving an Iris garden. Grows to a nice green color I help it by keeping it watered in dry spells and fertilized. i lime in spring and ffall just before it rains.

Bought this grass seed as a last resort to have beautiful grass in my front yard. I was quoted $2,500 to re-sod. So I figure I would rather spend $100 to see if I can grow grass and save tons of money, but that wasn't going to work, I would be forced to re-sod. I was a bit reluctant to be honest, even the landscaper told me my yard is in really bad shape and he'll be shocked if I would be able to grow grass. Well long story short, I did everything as instructed, watered, watered and watered - but did not drown the seed. Well now, almost two months later, I am proud to say that I am an owner of a very beautiful green lawn. ALL my neighbors were shocked on how green and thick my grass is now! Every one is coming to my door asking exactly what seed I used. My new grass growing like crazy (I've had to mow twice now). I am very happy with this product. I still can't believe how well it worked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good seed!!!! I first tried some bad spots in my back yard and a week later I had grass growth. I watered the lawn every evening for a month now and now I'm starting to see the thickness of the lawn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 100% Grass Seed mixture without fertilizer This grass seed mixture is all grass seed without any fertilizer in the mixture. The manufacturer provides very clear instructions on the packaging to obtain the best growth results. The manufacturer also recommends applying fertilizer prior to planting this grass seed. After all of the winter snow finally melted I bought and spread out 4 yards of loam to fill in several holes and uneven areas from having several trees removed and their stumps ground down last fall. I planted this grass seed in all of the areas that I filled in and covered with a layer of loam that were barren of grass and spread out 1/2 cup of grass seed per 2 square feet. Was able to plant grass seed in all of the areas that I covered with loam from one 7 pound bag of grass seed. This grass seed mix covers a lot of area in comparison to other grass seed mixes with fertilizer. I have found with planting grass seed in the past that you reap what you sew from the quality of the soil that the grass seed is planted in and the amount of effort that you invest periodically to help the grass to grow and to maintain the grass during each season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE GRASS DR. I am a new homeowner. My front grass was a mixture of dirt, brown grass (dead) and weeds. I was sick and tired of looking at it. I went to home depot and rented a tiller for $45 (4 hrs.) I overturned the dirt and pulled up the weeds. My neighbors were looking out their window laughing at me. I have the worst lawn on the block. Took back the tiller in time. Racked the weeds out of the dirt. Laid down Vigoro grass seed (along with cheap fertilizer), then watered the dirt (lol). It has been two weeks and I have grass. I have to purchase some more seeding because in one area, you can tell I was running out of seeding. I PROMISE THIS IS THE BEST!!!! I am going to upload a pic. To my neighbors....EAT GRASS!!!! (lol)
