    This seed was used with another combined and started coming up within days of planting. Really happy with the lawn. It's super green and lush.

    Defeated by Pennington
    I overseeded using the 40# bag. Now everywhere I planted it, this horrible, shaggy, fast growing, wide bladed monster grows. It looks terrible. I had a lawn expert look at it, and he recommended killing the lawn with glysophate herbicide and starting over. The good news is that the muddy areas in my lawn have been replace by something green. (Planted spring 2021)

        Hello! Our packaging has changed. It will still say 'Pennington Kentucky 31 Tall Fescue'. They come in 5lb, 10lb, 20lb, 40lb and 50lb weights.
          Blown away at the growth rate!
          Tilled the entire yard, lawn starter, Pennington Kentucky 31, and straw. THREE DAYS later I see grass popping up. It's been almost a week and I've got nearly an entirely green yard. Who says you can't grow grass in the summer!?

            Fast germinating and tough grass. I avoided Kentucky 31 for years because the blades are thicker than I would like but planted some this fall in areas that die every year during heat and drought. I do have it growing in some areas of the yard already and it is near indestructible. I put the seeds down on a Monday and covered them with a light layer of wet top soil. We had a 2 day rain event that Thurs/Fri and on Saturday morning the seeds had germinated. Germination was near 100%. I kept the seedlings moist through the first two mowings. This grass loves sun but will also tolerate some shade. It is durable for foot traffic and somewhat durable with pets. The bag I ordered in September was tested in June, so very new. The bag is 45% K31 and the rest is other matter such as the Penkoted coating which is a propriety way of coating the seeds to protect them from fungus and ensure good germination.

            Weeds, not recommended
            Trust the bad reviews. I’ve not had one weed in my yard all year. I aerated and seeded with this and like others have said I am now over run with clover and other weeds. Do not use this product. If there were zero stars I would award that.

            Hi Tpav, We certainly wouldn't expect this product to cause an experience like this, so we'd like to chat further with you about this. When you have a moment, please give our consumer care center a call at 1-800-285-7333. Thank you. pennington

              Sprouted in 5 Days!
              I seeded using Pennington on a Monday with lawn soil and by Saturday we already had baby grass. Excited to see how the lawn progresses. I dont think everyone will have these same results because it’s mid-September 2020 and we had a week of rain. Also i used the entire 40 lb bag on a postage stamp yard less than 200 sqft. First i pull weeds and thatch, then till, seed, till, water, soil, rake, seed, rake, soil, seed and water. Bare spots on my lawn are lush and green after just one week!
