Works fast
I tried to grow grass in a spot where a stump was removed in my front lawn. The area was patchy and looked terrible. I followed the instructions with this seed. Applied in the fall and started to see growth fast. Definitely recommend.

    9 days no sprouting
    We overseed every fall. August weather and dogs typically do are yard in. I used a 20lb bag in a 100ft by 35ft back yard. There is only one spot that has gotten a slim amount of sprouts. The seed looks soft and like mush since the fertilizer coat is off of it. Bad seed.. Very disappointed in this product.

      This performed very well in part sun/part shade area of my front lawn where I recently removed six large shrubs. Our soil was in good shape, but I still added about half a yard of sweet peet to help amend it and aid the growing process. I noticed growth after roughly eight days after watering twice consistently per day. There are still a couple of bare spots, but overall I’m very pleased with how this seed fared.

        When we bought our house, it had Bermuda grass under two mature Oaks, which resulted in acompletely dead front lawn. We cleared the acorns, added some compost, then seeded with Pennington Dense Shade, and added another layer of fine compost and we started seeing germination. I don't have a before picture, but imagine brown dirt with hard acorn shells and a complete lack of green. I am attaching the after picture. The bare spots seen are not a germination problem but a site issue, where rainwater falls from the branches abov e, displacing the seed. We will overseed in fall and spring after the trees are trimmed so we will have no bare spots. The compost layer on top and watering 3 times is key as we have had unsuccessful attempts before. The compost holds moisture and provides it when the seeds need it.

        Easy to use
        Super easy to apply and worked quickly. Application was easier than I expected and I like that fertilizer is built in to save a step.

              Will buy again
              Our lawn was starting to thin with a few bald spots. Bought a bag of Pennington Smart Seed, followed directions and grass started to come back beautifully.
