          Q:I?m looking for 70% blue 30% rye grass seed. Do you have it?
          by|Aug 13, 2022
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  Do what I did, buy a 10lb bag of bluegrass and a 3lb bag of perennial rye grass, then mix them together. The result is 77% blue grass and 23% rye. if you really want 70/30, 7lbs of blue to 3lbs of rye will get you that as well.

              Far exceeded expectations
              This product has worked far better than I anticipated. The bare spots in my lawn have filled in completely in less than 4 weeks. I watered twice daily for 5-10 minutes and waited to spread the seed until temperatures dropped to the 70-85 range in the fall.

                I put this down two weeks ago and now my yard is full of weeds with very little new grass.

                  Poor Quality
                  When I went to spread this grass seed the green fertilizer came off the seed and created clouds of green smoke that ruined my clothes and would probably have been dangerous to inhale. I’m other seed products the fertilizer does not come off the seed as a powder (I didn’t have this problem with Scott’s brand). Don’t use this product.

                    The truth
                    I bought this seed to repair a small area in my backyard in June. Very little Bermuda came up but it was mostly crab grass. I called and talked to a customer insult person and was basically called a liar , there was no crab grass in their seed and it was already in my yard. Basically I can’t get a refund unless I get Home Depot to look up my transaction then mail it to them. All this for an 8$ bag of basically weed seed. I declined and said I just won’t be buying anything that has Pennington on the package. The picture I’m attaching is half a bucket of crab grass I’ve pulled in roughly a 5’x5’ foot area. I still have a 10’x5’ area to go that is worse than the area I’ve cleaned up. If there was a zero star to select it would be closer to what I would give in my review.

                    We are sorry your recent seeding experience didn't go as planned. While we do understand it can be a frustrating experience seeing weeds grow in seeded areas, we do highly regulate and test our grass seed products for grass seed germination and weed control. Our guarantee on the bag does state that we require the receipt and packaging within 60 days to assist in processing any refunds. pennington
                      Don’t Waste Your Money
                      This bag of weeds will cost me exponentially more in stripping, replanting/reseeding than I would have paid to get sod. The ground was stripped in the spring, solid temperature was 65 degrees, and the seed was covered with straw to keep the moisture in and prevent birds from eating it. My sprinklers kept it moist for weeks allowing it to germinate. The results are atrocious. I might be able to find a few blades of grass if I look closely, but overall it’s ALL WEEDS. Very dissatisfied.

                        Fantastic Seed!
                        I spread this seed (by hand) and I used more seed than recommended in the new area. After a couple of weeks it started to grow in. I kept adding more seed every week to thicken the grass and it now looks beautiful and absolutely NO WEEDS! By the way, I used the entire bag in a 400 sq ft area over 8 weeks to make the lawn more full and plush! The price of this seed is a great value and the sun & shade formulation works amazingly. Pictures attached are over 8 weeks.

                          My grass was not sun tolerant..
                          For some reason my grass began to die when temperature got in to high 90s ..my grass turned brown even watering it every other day..It was beautiful until it got hot..pretty green grass..it's planted since March and this is July. I don't know what's wrong..it says it is good in sun and shade..drought resistant..olive in East Texas ...I made sure I bought right grass for this area.

                            Super easy. I planted and put top soil over it and within weeks it was this full!

                              Soak
                              I strongly recommend pregermination! I've tried overfeeding a few times! I It was a waste of time and money!: I pregerminatated (soaked the seeds for 3-5 days) Then planted and the grass grew in a week! I made my own sod actually and planted its doing great!
