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.

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!

My yard was totally turned to hard clay packed dirt after two years of dog activity. I now have a full yard of bright green grass. Now must find a good solution to keep the dogs on their side of the fence.

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.

Buyer Beware! Pennington is a seedy company!
Spent $69.37 on 40 pounds of seed, followed instructions, and spent 3 weeks watering. Seed didn't grow, AT ALL! Total waste of money (for seed and water) and time Contacted Pennington for refund guarantee, and after many emails, and several phone calls, got nothing but the run-around. You would think that a major company like Pennington would stand by their product, as well as do better at customer satisfaction.

I was very disappointed with this product. After aerating the lawn, I spread the grass seed and kept it watered. I would estimate that less than 10% of the seeds germinated. I don't know whether I received a defective batch of seeds, or this is a general problem with this product, but my experience was quite unsatisfactory. It definitely failed to meet my expectations.
