What is the germination time for these seeds???

I laid down this product 8 days ago and dont see any sign of grass beginning to form. What is the germination time supposed to be? I planted per the instructions on the bag and have watered twice daily. Did i waste 50$ on a product that is not going to grow...

Asked by: Cl
Hi CI, We always recommend having a soil test done first. This will tell you which soil amendments need to be added prior to seeding. The soil bed needs to be soft and loose, to ensure good seed to soil contact. Thanks!

Can/should this be used to start a new lawn on a bare yard?

Can/should this be used to start a new lawn on a bare yard?
Asked by: bjdapoet
I have to agree with WXH. This is generally considered a "repair" seeding and does not fair well on 'barebone' yards. Although it will grow, it will not produce the kind of results you may be looking for. Take the first couple of years to cultivate your ground and work your way up. Depending on zone is usually what dictates type of grass, bearing in mind the average mean heat index where you live.

Pennington 8.3 lb. One Step Complete for Dense Shade Mulch Areas with Smart Seed, Mulch, Fertilizer Mix is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 1468.

I've always bought Pennington grass seed, then had to put top soil over the seed after I spread it. I thought this would be worth the extra expense, since it would eliminate half the work. However, it has taken over a month for the seed to sprout at all, and so far, it is kind of sparse in many places. I'm afraid I'm going to end up having to buy more seed and go back to the old way of doing it. In all fairness to the seed, our weather has been less than ideal, as we're 80 degrees one day and snowing the next week. I waited this long to write the review as I really was hoping for great results. So far, I'm not thrilled, but I can see that it will at least be better than all of the winter killed areas that I had before I used this product. It is pretty expensive for my budget, but hoped the results would pay off. I'm giving it four stars though, due to ease of use - and the feeling that with better weather I'd of had better sprouting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked exactly as stated Had a huge spot to repair. Took down a 60 foot maple tree and ground the stump to 5-6 inches below ground level. This left a 10’x10’ crater after removing all the stump grindings. Filled the hole with a quality bagged garden soil (30 cubic ft) and used this Pennington product since the area was part sun/shade. As you can see by the photos the product worked exactly as stated. Germinated in 7 days, full lawn in 17 days. I think the other reviewers that had a negative opinion did not follow the directions, or failed to fertilize after well established (new grass needs some nitrogen). What is critical in growing grass is to never let the seed dry out once it has swelled with water. If that happens the seed becomes unviable. I found that the mulch in the product (basically sawdust) held the seed in place well, even in some heavy rains, without washing away. Great product if used correctly. Also did some patches and had the same spectacular results.

I had a huge tree taken out of my back yard and had to spread over 3 tons of topsoil to fill the hole left by the ground out stump and roots. I used this grass seed to plant grass in the approximately 250 square feet of new sod area. It came up fast and was fairly dense. There were a few places where it did not seem to do well, and struggled a little. Everything was fine until late fall when these few small areas began to whither. They tried to come back, but never quite made it. I will probably have to reseed those spots this fall.

But -- how much is your time worth. I have wasted too much time with inferior products/methods. This does the job! I put down some top soil (bought in a bag), and generously applied this product. As my husband said today, the areas where I applied this product is the best grass we have! It's great for filling in bare spots, but we had to do major areas after oak leaves were left last year due to poor weather conditions. Try it, you can't go wrong!

The mix is user friendly, with everything in one container, however, I put it down a week ago, and water it twice daily, but it still hasn't started germinating in spite of the full sunshine and adequate watering. As a result, I can't recommend it. I usually use other brand grass seed for patch jobs, and this is the first time I have used Pennington's. Next time, I would probably put down other brand seed and cover with topdressing. Probably cheaper too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It worked as promise but there's a catch Bought a house and the front lawn had a couple of bare spots that were an eye sore. Walking thru Home Depot I saw the product and read the instructions and followed them. I raked the bare spot and loosen the soil, used a cup for every square foot as indicated and water it twice a day. After a week I have grass covering the bare spots! I also tried to cover the mulch with topsoil to see if I works better and had no luck.

This is the second time I purchased this product this year and apparently they forgot to put grass seed into the bag. The first time I used the product, no grass was observed after three weeks keeping the product moist the entire time. The same results happened the second time I used the product. No grass after 10 days. Do not waste your money!

The area we seeded was a shady area but it still grew and we were happy. The first week we watered once in the morning and then once in the evening. Very pleased with the product. Sorry I did not take before and after pictures because we literary had no grass before we used this product.
