Product Details

Pennington Annual Ryegrass grass seed is ideal for the quick establishment of a temporary lawn. It is a throw-and-grow seed that can be planted without tilling or digging into the soil and destroying permanent ground cover already in place. Designed for temporary or seasonal lawns. It works in the winter months to provide greening and prevent erosion.
  • Fast germination for quick cover
  • Can be used for over-seeding dormant warm-weather grasses such as Bermuda and Zoysia to maintain a green lawn year round
  • Helpful in erosion control
  • Best for full sun to light shade (6-8 hours of sun per day)
  • Germinates in 5-10 days
  • Covers up to 2,000 sq. ft. for overseeding and approximately 1,000 sq. ft. for a new lawn
  • Not recommended for use in warm season lawns

      A:  Hello! Ryegrass requires 6 to 8 hours of sunlight.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Comes up quick, 7-10 days nice color with minimum amount of weeds. Not very durable as a stand alone seed but, great for over seeding and small patching.  Good luck !!!

        by|Aug 23, 2022

          A:  The rye grass is the FASTEST germination grass in the time that is the best in Southern California. Winter and Spring when we have the nature helping us with rain or at list "torrential drizzle". You will be -for a few months - the pride of the neighborhood, providing a double duty in mowing the loan. Good luck

                Pennington rye grass seed
                Got quick results, fully grew in about 4 weeks. Didn't do much prepping other than raking dead debris from area. Watered 3 times a day and just saw grass coming up every day, extremely impressed

                  Did not germinate
                  The grass seed just sat there. No germination what so ever. I’m very disappointed. I’ve planting annual rye grass the last three years and I’ve always been successful. Not this batch.

                  Hello, Grass seed can take 7 to 14 days provided that the soil temperature is warm enough to support germination. If the weather has not been consistently warm germination can take longer. Please contact customer service 1-800-285-7333 so that we may assist you further. Thank you. pennington

                    Patchy Grass
                    The grass seed came in patchy. I am watering on the recommended schedule but it is only taking in certain parts. Home depot doesn't carry any other competing brands of rye grass so this is what I was stuck with.

                      Very good grass!
                      These are some very good seeds, at first I was skeptical since no grass I tried grows in my area but this took off! After about 4 days I started seeing grass, and after 2 weeks everything was covered in lush grass.

                        Did not work as expected
                        About 30% of the seeds did not germinate, looking for alternatives at the local plant nursery and feed stores.

                        The pictures speak for themselves!! I have a spot in my yard that wouldn’t grow, even after laying st. augustine a few years ago.. it thrived everywhere but under the tree as it’s so shaded there. My sister told me she used this product on her lawn so I decided to give it a try since it was so cheap (compared to sod!) I just sprinkled it with my hand right out of the bag, it took maybe 20 minutes tops. Originally I was only watering once per day and I was seeing small growth after about 3 days. But after doing some research, I learned you need to keep the seeds moist for optimal growth so I decided to change my watering to 4x per day, for 8 minutes each and BAM! It took off. It’s so beautiful and lush. I can’t believe a product like this exists after all this time struggling to keep the st. augustine alive in that spot! I also want to note, this product is listed as being for winter but my sisters lawn in Texas stayed green all year long, even in the triple digit temps! Highly recommend this product!
