Does this seed work in Houston Texas? I would like to plant it under an oak tree. Thanks!

Asked by Wendy September 30, 2020

Answers

Wendy, our Dense Shade Mix will grow in Texas under the right conditions. It consists primarily of Tall Fescues, but is commonly used in shaded areas of Bermuda lawns. Just make sure the shaded area receives at least two hours of sun. This article has some more tips for growing grass in shady areas: https://www.pennington.com/all-products/grass-seed/resources/how-to-grow-grass-in-the-shade

FANTASTIC RESULTS
Customer wanted to fill-in a bare space under a tree. Filled-in with topsoil and hand planted the seed. First time using Pennington brand. Very happy with the results!! Watered twice daily and saw sprouts at 7 days. Picture is at 10 days. Was curious to see if the seed would sprout so early in the season (late August). Daytime temps in the 90's with lows in the 60's. Will definitely buy Pennington again.

It worked but took longer than expected. I planted the seeds and watered the lawn everyday. Sprouts showed at the 7th day. They are pretty tall now but kind of thin.

INCONSISTENT - Earlier this year (Mar/Apr, 2019) I bought a 7 LB bad of this product, Pennington sun and shade grass seed from Home Depot in Leavenworth, KS. I was planning on using it to fill a few bare spots in my yard but never got around to it. This bag sat in the garage, unopened, until last Sunday (Sep 8, 2019). On Sep 6 and 7, I had a french drain installed in my yard to fix a pooling problem and decided to use this seed to get grass growing again along the new drain. It was quite a long drain and this bag covered only half of it. So I went back to Home Depot and bought a 20 LB bag of the same seed (Pennington sun and shade), and finished covering the drain. I covered it all with a thin layer of straw and have been keeping it moist ever since. The seed from the first bag (the small one) sprouted this last Saturday (Sep 14) and is growing very well at this time. But, the second (newer) bag hasn't done anything. The conditions are identical (amount of sun and water) between the two. See the pictures attached, you can easily see where I changed bags. All grass was planted the same day and has been kept under the same conditions. Pennington's customer service is horrible. After first noticing that the new seed was not doing anything while the older seed was thriving, I contacted their customer service by email. After 4 days, I still have not heard from them despite receiving an email stating they would be in contact with me soon. I finally took the seed back to home depot who promptly returned my money. Pennington, please don't bother to respond with your canned reply of, "Thanks for letting us know. Hearing about your experience is important to us. We hope you'll consider giving us a call at 1-800-285-7333 so we can learn more." I have already moved on to "greener pastures" with a local company with reliable seed.

Bought a few bags of this and ruined my lawn as well as neighbors. It spread all kinds of weeds mostly crabgrass. We had to hire professional service to get rid of weeds and took us close to $500. Hate it.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Every year I take care of my lawn myself instead of paying a gardener. I decided to give Pennington Smart Seed 7 lb. Tall Fescue PC Grass Seed a shot in filling in the bare spots on my lawn. Very easy instructions to follow could not have been easier. Just raked of the dead grass and bare spots, wet the areas down, seeded, covered lightly with peat moss and watered at least once a day to keep the seed moist. In a little over a week the new grass started showing. By the end of the second week the areas were filled in with thin blades of grass and growing rapidly. Fully satisfied with the results so far and only see the results getting better. Highly recommend it.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I’ve tried seeding before with a different brand, but I didn’t follow instructions 100% and didn’t get good results. This time I made sure to clean the area and loosen the dirt with a rake. I spread the seeds by hand and then raked a bit more to mix them into the ground. Two weeks went by and I’m already seeing small thin grass emerging from the ground. Granted not all seeds sprouted, but in order for it to work at all it requires good prep, water, good soil, patience and perfect mix of everything together. I don’t get a lot of sunlight where I spread these and there was enough rain lately so I didn’t have to water much. I’m happy with the results for my application.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I usually stay away from the coated seeds because I'd rather get more seeds per pound but I got these because a specific part of my yard doesn't get a lot of rain because of the trees, fence, and in an awkward position that my sprinkler doesn't hit. These are the water smart kind that don't need as much as uncoated seeds. I've used these before and had a great experience. I'm not sure why others didn't have the same. I removed a patch of firewood from part of my yard and there was nothing alive under it. I loosened the soil and mixed in the seeds. I kept the ground wet by watering it whenever it was dry. Sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. After 3 days I started seeing growth meaning they germinated immediately. The pictures below are from 7 days after planting them. This is inline with what they are supposed to do. I don't know why others are having problems.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Dense Shade Grass Seed. Used this seed for re-seeding large spots of dead or foreign grass. This area is also in the shade most of the day so I'm hoping this seed works well. From planting to a grass height of 1/2 inch (see picture) took 11 days. First I scrapped off the dead grass down to the soil and than loosened up the soil. Mixed in a good amount of grass seed and added a thin layer of top soil. Added another layer of seed and patted it down so the seed would not blow away in the wind. Gave the area a good soaking once a day.
