I live in Texas and our summers are brutal. It goes a little dormant but with sufficient watering or rain it perks back up. Nevertheless, it is more lush in fall and spring.

Hi Hizbth, It is not mandatory. Straw is recommended to protect seeds in certain environments and/or add extra moisture to the seed if soil tends to become really dry. Thank you.

I live in St Louis, what is the difference between the central and northern seed.

Asked by Meg May 24, 2019
1
Answer

Hi Meg, Central or Transition Zones through the central part of the United States and includes parts of each of the other four zones. Because the transition zone has cold winters that can kill warm-season grasses and hot summers that can kill cool-season species, this zone is the most challenging in which to grow turf grass. For Northern zone, cool season grass is recommended. Thank you.

What is the color and texture of the grass when grown? Is it light, medium or dark grass in color.

Asked by TedN May 21, 2019
2
Answers

The color is all of the above because of the mixture of grasses, but fall and spring it is more medium to dark green. Most of the grass is long thin blades.

This is the best seed for hard to grow areas, quick germination and spot repairs. The seed is dyed a bright color so you can go back and find it easily to rake in or cover with more soil.

I bought several bags of this a few weeks ago. I had some bald spots on my lawn, but I also wanted to cover the rest of the lawn where I had existing grass to provide more coverage. I wouldn't recommend this at all. Please see the attached photos of my lawn. I have so many weeds, (it's advertised as 1% weed), that I'll now have to kill the weeds and purchase a different type of grass seed to cover it. Very frustrated and dissatisfied because not only did I pay for this seed, I will now have to buy a different product and go through the work of sewing and watering again.

This was my first time using Pennington so I wasn't sure how it was going to do. I mixed this with top soil to cover an area that had been filled with Pea gravel. I covered the area to about an inch thick. Within 2 weeks I had 2 inch long grass blades and complete carpeting of the area by 1 month. This was in October with temps around 68 during the day and 42 at night. I watered the area for about 30 minutes everyday for the first week then every other day for another week. Pretty decent price compared to other brands. Be prepared to mow a lot of grass!!!!!!

This product was quick to pop up . 5 days and the grass was visible. Established quickly and the areas where it was used look great . I cut with a weed trimmer for a several weeks( no mowers ) and this along with proper watering keeps it healthy.

Totally reccomend
I wasn't sure if we sould go with this produce given the mixed reviews. We live in central Virginia. We used a common garden rake to pre-treat soil. Some areas we laid down new top soil, and other areas we just raked, to break up the dirt that was already there. We laid down seed on a sunday. We water 10-20min twice daily. On day 4 we gently raked the new seeded soil again. The following Sunday we had 1-2cm growth. By Thursday 1-2 inches tall. We plan on continuing twice a daily watering through the weekend. We have the same amount of growth in shady and sunny areas. We got probably 80-90% growth. I am pleased with the product.

I was really looking forward to the results based on some reviews however, after watching out for 3 weeks I gave up. Planted 3/4 of the bag 7 wks ago and prepared the soil but no result despite watering profusely. I guess I wasted my money!
