Product Overview

Pennington Kentucky 31 Tall Fescue helped revolutionize the grass seed industry. This durable, heat-tolerant variety was an early leader in putting low-maintenance, disease resistant lawns within the average homeowner's reach. Decades later, this economical, traditional tall fescue grass remains an industry standard for cool-season lawn grasses. This tough, drought-resistant grass thrives in lawns that receive 4-hours to 8-hours of sun. Plant it in the early spring or early fall and start to see results within 8-days to 21-days. This 20 lbs. bag covers up to 4,000 sq. ft. for overseeding an existing lawn and 1,660 sq. ft. for starting a new lawn from scratch. While most grass seed companies buy their seed on the open market, we are the only major grass seed company that works directly with a network of dedicated growers. Built on decades of trust and integrity, our relationships with seed growers and their families now span multiple generations. Our legacy of working directly with farmers to bring you the finest grass seed possible helps ensure their success and ours. At Pennington, we know our seed and the farmers who grow it. From field to final product, that's the Pennington way.

    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.

    Pennington Destroyed My Lawn
    Orchard grass only appears where I spread the Pennington grass seed. It is too early in the season for crabgrass (which is what this stuff resembles). I have identified the weed in my lawn as orchard grass.

        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.
