Answer This Question

A:  Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Tall Fescue Mix germination rate may decline up to 7% each year it is stored so storing for multiple years is not recommended.

    Q:Can I use this product on my shady front lawn?
    by|May 19, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Scotts Turf Builder High Traffic Mix is not a recommended seed mix for shady areas. It is a blend of Kentucky blue/ryegrass/fescue. Shade tolerance: Bluegrass - depends on variety (poor-fair); Perennial Ryegrass - not tolerant but can be a temporary cover for about 1 year in shaded areas; Tall Fescue - fair to good. Even shade-tolerant grass must have at least 4 hours of sunlight. If the area receives less than 4 hours of sun each day, growing grass is impossible. Consider pruning to thin trees or raising the canopy to increase sunlight. If not possible, consider planting shade-tolerant groundcovers such as pachysandra or vinca. Use Scotts shade-tolerant seed mixes, but remember they need at least 4 hours of sunlight daily.

        Q:Good Morning Again, or should I consider another type of grass seeds for the dogs? I just read that sometimes the Tall Fescue grass/seeds can cause allergic reactions. Should I try Bluegrass, Zoysia, and/or Bermuda instead. 3rd of 3 emails sent this morn

        Answer This Question

        A:  When used according to label instructions, this product poses no health risks. Pets, such as dogs and cats may return to the lawn immediately after the application. Traffic on the lawn should be limited until the new grass germinates and has time to become established.

            So good
            I had bare ga clay. I seeded and covered with hay. I watered every day and it looks amazing. If you use and water as needed then this is guaranteed to work. You have to put in the time and effort. I will be buying this to over-seed every year.

              Not Grass, Lol. My Lawn is Ruined.
              I bought bags of this seed with the goal of overseeding our front and backyard lawn, and filling in some dog and gopher-related gaps. Prior to using this, we had fairly decent grass. The kind you could walk barefoot in. After using this, we have all kinds of clovers and weeds shooting up everywhere we threw seed down. I do recognize some of the “stalky” looking grass as seeding so that’s fine, but the clovers are EVERYWHERE. Disappointing.

                  This product is great. Using it to grow grass from areas of sod that had died. Grass is coming in nicely.

                  Turf Builder tall Fescue mix delivers as promised!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We had many bad spots in our yard where grass just would not grow. After tilling up the ground we applied Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Tall Fescue Mix and so far are pleased with the results. The grass has taken root, just as the product promised. It has just started growing but we expect it to fully cover the bare spots. A before picture is posted; with all the recent rain we expect a full yard of good grass before Spring turns to Summer in the South.

                    Solid results
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this product to overseed my front lawn. I prepped my yard as directed. My spreader dispersed the seed mix with ease, providing an even spread. I watered as directed. The seed began to sprout at 11 days. The grass looks healthy and it should start filling in my lawn nicely.

                      Easy to apply with quick results
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After completing some dirt work to dig a ditch and level the surrounding area, I used this product. It was easy to apply with my spreader. Our temperatures have been on the very high side of the maximum optimal temperature and some of the seed washed down in storms, but I am seeing growth and am happy with how fast I saw the first bit of growth, after about a week. This product is a combiantion seed, fertilizer, and soil conditioner and I am happy with my results at this point.

                        Grass that works in Southern CA
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Grass that works in Southern CA. Over seeded lawn in early April, after rains and the seed took very quickly to the prepared lawn that was thatched to loosen the soil. Came in very green and dense. Hoping will survive the heat.
