Answer: 
I've been told by turf grass scientist that it does not spread to the extent of Bermuda but it does create a bushier plant & will fill in small bare spot to a limited extent. Check the label. The RTF variety is probably less than 5% of the total seed.

Answer: 
This is a rhizome tall fescue (RTF), by definition it spreads. Rhizomes continue to branch out and over time will fill bare spots but not fast. I have used this seed and it does in fact fill in nicely. I doubt a tree professional (arborist) would know this.

Answer: 
No it does not spread like bermuda grass. I was told by an arborist that this blend of fescue grows in place and does not spread.

I recently bought a new home out in the country and now have well water. I was told that I should not water my grass as often as I did because it will use up the well. Just wondering what type of seed should I put down as to not water as much.

Answer: 
Centipede grass does not require a great deal of watering. It is best established by sod (which will require a good bit of watering to get started) and will require minimum water once established. It can be started from seed but, due to it's slow growth habit, you won't see much grass until the second growing season.

Answer: 
The best drought resistant and low water grasses are blends with zoysia, Bermuda, St. Augustine, buffalo, bahia, and fescues.

Hi Chris,

Yes, this fescue grass seed mixture will withstand the harshest winters in Maine. It is considered a "turf-type" tall fescue, which is a shorter growing fescue than Kentucky 31 Fescue.

Maine has 6 climate zones, so this grass will do better in some areas than others. The duration of snow cover will have an effect on the grass, as well as the exposure to salt conditions, both at the shore and along roadways.
Here is the address for the USDA Interactive Climate Zone Map of The United States:

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very happy in MT After many years trying to establish some lawn around our home in MT, I found the water saver seed from Home Depot. We live 90 miles from the nearest HD store so I was pleased to order online and get free shipping. I prepared the soil by hand (not a professional job) scattered the seed, gently raked it in, and tamped it down. I applied seed in the early spring, early summer and early fall in different places around the house. The grass is growing well. Even the most recent early fall spots are beginning to sprout. Our winters are not too severe so I anticipate a good start for those areas next spring. Only problem are the wild turkeys are eating the grass seed. Non the less, I am very happy with this product and will order more when needed. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Serious....Very Nice Grass Would highly reccomend you give this a shot. I do not know yet if it is drought resistant, but what has popped up is some seriously nice grass. Most of it germinated fast, some slower, but 4 weeks and had a healthy lawn. September 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dark Green Grass After two week, we have grass growing, not as thick as I would have liked but so it is begining to fill in. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QUICK GROWING SEEDS This is my third purchase of the grass seeds this year. The seeds grew within 3 weeks and was ready to cut 30-45 days. By reseeding my lawn with this seed it has almost eliminated weeds from taking over the yard. The front yard has lush green grass without the pesticides. I plan to reseed the rest of the yard to eliminated open spots and weeds. No more soil erosion after heavy rains. August 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grew Fast and Green 3 weeks after planting and I am glad I did. I live in Kingman AZ and laid a layer of this seed with 10-10-10 fertilzer then 1/2" of kellogg topper soil on top and within a week started getting blades. I made sure to water it enough that the soil was always moist. The grass looks very green. It is patchy so I will have to go over it again but I think this was a good choice. August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service & Product Germinated quickly and filled in the patches of the previous tall fescue. This type of Tall Fescue will grow runners to fill in the patchy areas. We'll see how it fares after a few months of maturing. Put out 150 lbs. of the RTF Tall Fescue...; April 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice looking lawn I planted this seed in a new lawn recovered from meadow area in Upstate New York. Most lawns in the North East are bluegrass. The seed germinated rapidly and has nearly filled in all of the bare spots that were caused by a heavy rain event before the lawn was established. Most of the seeded area is thick and dark green. I think it will work well for a sporting area, and I might overseed my other lawn space with this seed as well. September 2, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't Grow At All I purchased two bags to overseer my RTF fescue lawn. I spread 50 pounds of this product, exactly as directed. Watered as directed, absolutely zero growth. This was a total waste. I definitely wish I'd saved the bags. I'd try for a refund. You may want to look elsewhere. December 9, 2014
