Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FIrst timer & it worked out great! Having heard that growing grass from seed was very difficult, my expectations were not high. Now I'm kicking myself for not doing this sooner. June 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Grows pretty well in heavily shaded back yard This product grows pretty well in my heavily shaded backyard. Its price is competitive with other products on the market. I have used it both as a fill-in for bare spots and for over seeding. June 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Growing grass in heavy shaded area under a large tree I have a large area in my front yard that is shielded from the sun by a large tree. It was just dirt and I did not think any grass would grow. I threw these seeds on the naked spots last Monday, watered once a few days and by Friday grass was growing! Needless to say I was thrilled. I didn't water a lot because our, ever so accurate, meteorologist called for rain every day last week and we barely got any. I lightly raked before I literally threw the seeds down with my hand, then raked again to mix it in and watered...didn't cover with hay, peat moss or anything. I'm really impressed. I have other spots in my yard that were burned by a local yard service from their weed & feed and I'm hoping Pennington's 1-Step for Bermudagrass will help...fingers crossed. June 10, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worthless bag of "seeds" that don't grow. I can't really say this bag of grass seed did nothing. It did take up space in my garage for a week before I spread it on the dirt patch that is half of my front yard. I read the instructions and felt really positive and hopeful about the soon to be lush, vibrant, baby grass shoots that would soon be sprouting in my front yard dirt patch. This stuff did NOTHING - except stick in the dirt then disappear after a week. July 2014 had to have been the absolutely best month of weather Dallas TX has had for a July in my lifetime. We had cool temps and plenty of rain. I spread this worthless bag of "grass seeds" in my front yard dirt patch at the absolute perfect time to grow grass. But this stuff is a waste of money. I suppose I could have saved the bag and used it to pick up after the dog on her morning walk... August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Grass Seed - Great Results This dense shade grass seed comes up and is thick and hardy. August 19, 2014
