My experience is that, depending on how many hours of direct sunlight and how hot it gets it may not "die" but go dormant. Just try not to walk on it or even mow around it during that time. Mix this seed with a "heat resistant" seed which will help during summertime.

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.

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!

It’s been 10 days since I put these 2 bags of seeds, not a single piece of grass came out. Followed all directions for overseeding including some bare spots. After dethatching (rented power rake from home depot) and cover with thin layer of topsoil...no results

Doesn't grow well when just sown onto existing grass or dirt. I covered mine with generous amounts of manure and it grew great. Didn't last through the winter well though.
