One application and done. Seed is germinating and lawn is super green. This product saves so much time and tractor fuel. Be a smart home owner, buy this product. I love it!

Loving This Product So Far!
Over 1 month ago, my lawn suffered from a fungus and I lost close to 40% of my lawn. After curing my fungus issue, I needed to reseed. I've used Pennington products in past, so I thought I'd give their Lawn Booster a try. Like any seeding process, then most critical part is in preparing the ground for planting to be sure to give the seed t fan optimal environment for germination. 1. Cleaned all areas of dead fungus 2. Raked all areas to a 2 inch depth 3. Seeded with Pennington Lawn Booster grass seed and raked in 3. Applied 1 inch of standard \ organic topsoil mix 4. Seeded with Pennington Lawn Booster grass seed and raked in After 1 week of watering (once\daily), I'm seeing new growth. see before and after pic attached.

Different Grass Came up.
I thought that I was getting what is discribed on the bag, but some other grass popped up in the spots it was intended to fill.

Terrible Product
I made the mistake of trying to save a few dollars over the competitors' higher-priced grass seed, and the "savings" were a complete loss. I have tried this seed 3 different times in several different areas of my lawn without success (e.g., small spot repair, larger post-landscaping sections, etc). Few seeds ever germinated despite daily watering, various protective coverings, and planting in both sun and shaded areas (see attached picture). I've purchased $5 bags of grass seed from the local farm store that germinated better than this Pennington product. Since I continued to believe I would find a way to get the seed to grow, I only have approx. 1/10th of the bag remaining, and I'm sure Home Depot will not refund my money, so I wasted $18.

I’ve never written a bad review, however this product wasted my money. I followed all directions and watered twice per day with a sprinkler system. Not a single sprouted seed! Maybe all these seeds died? If I break them open they appear to have just turned into dry husks. No germination whatsoever. Waited as long as I could to see if maybe it took extra weeks, but now I’ll be asking for a replacement or money back. Maybe it was just my bag that was dead? -J

Smart seed?
There might be fertilizer in this, but as for grass seed stay away from this product. We planted just before weeks of good on and off rainfall, perfect conditions, and the growth is laughable. I need to try and get my money back

Took a min but awesome
Yes it sprouted. Eventually. I bought two types and applied the Pennington to the deep shade and Vigoro to regular shade. Pennington came up faster, thicker and stronger. You'll notice area around tree (which was in the deeper shade) is the area that is lush. Foreground grass is thin and wispy.
by Joy
This product is awful
After much research and comparison, it seems Pennington seed was best versus competitors regarding weed ratio. My yard is now inundated with a clover type growth. I am very disappointed, and no one replied to customer service request about the situation. Now I not only wasted my money, but have created an even larger problem I must eradicate this Spring. Ryan

Turned my lawn brown
You would think that with writing on the package saying "sun & shade, spring & fall, seed and fertilizer, soil enhancer, smart seed drought tolerant and all-in-one solution that this product is GUARANTEED to work but alas the only thing it did was turn my grass brown. Cleveland Ohio area, used in the month of September, bought a Scott's Edge Guard spreader with the Lawn Booster and set to 5.25 like the bag said to but I'm left scratching my head wondering why no new grass grew and my lawn is now brown while both of my neighbors grass is still green. Woke up early and waited till sun down to water the lawn as this was the most important step according to the instructions. My goal was to make my neighbors jealous of my thick green lawn but now they have to be laughing at me because of all that money and time wasted just to kill my grass. Tell me what I did wrong so I may simply get my original "ok" lawn back please.
