What is the listed weed seed % and the listed other crop %?
Asked by: LawnCare
I am only a consumer of this product and do not work with the company. But, per my review, there is a much higher than expected percentage of non-fescue grass in areas where I used this product in my yard this fall. It looks like crab grass that is abundant in this seed mix. I was very disappointed. For more information, you can read my review and see pictures.

September 2017, we prepped the soil, laid out the Rebel 2 tall fescue grass seed. Watered faithfully and eventually tapering off towards winter. Germinated in 5-7 days. Grass looked great except it was always laying down in about 50% of the areas. I'd push my 4 WD lawnmower over the grass and it'd lay down also where the wheels had gone over it (and my feet). Never would bounce back like REGULAR grass would do. September through May, it looked great (except for the laying down factor); then, it started turning pale yellow to dead brown (even with adequate rainfall). I emailed the manufacturer and got the usual "Not our fault" response. Their excuse is it could be ANY number of factors: weather, soil, etc. So, folks, it's NOT worth the trouble to get that "Guarantee" guaranteed. They might as well take that statement OFF the bag. Now, reading these comments about regular Rebel, I think I'll pass on regular Rebel too. Now, I'll go check the Scotts reviews.

Purchased in spring for reseeding so patches at the same time I had a bag of Scott's as well but not enough to go around so the reason for Rebel. After 3 weeks the Rebel came in strong, but the Scott's was "patchy" in coming in.....Needless to say I will reseed with Rebel in the Fall..

Germination rate for this product was EXTREMELY poor (in the Raleigh, NC area). I would say less than 10% of the seed germinated. Even worse, Pennington (who makes Rebels) does NOT stand behind its product guarantee. The Rebel Guarantee states they will refund your purchase price, but the words "may be entitled" come into play. I submitted a printed receipt from Home Depot and they declined to offer a refund because they said it wasnt an "original" receipt. BUYER BEWARE: poor product, even poorer customer service

Every fall I reseed my fescue lawn and have tried several brands of seed that have all worked well. Home Depot had The Rebels Tall Fescue Mix on sale for $38.38. I've never tried this brand, but heard it was good. Bought two bags and spread this seed over the lawn after careful preparation. It's been a month now and hardly any of the seed from both Rebels 20 lb bags germinated. I went down to a local feed store and bought a 50 lb bag of Kentucky #31 fescue and spread it out over the Rebels seed. Within a week the #31 seed had seed had germinated with blades 1/4 - 1/2 inches tall. Unfortunately, I threw the Rebels bags away not thinking there could be a failure in germination.. bad mistake. So I had to eat this one, but will never try The Rebels brand again. Buyer beware, this seed is absolutely no good.

The grass grew in fine, within a few weeks, but is FULL of non-fescue grass. It looks like crab grass. I've attached pictures, and you can see the spots I reseeded are almost all bad grass. Disappointing result for all of the work, time, and money put into doing this the right way. I don't recommend this product. For the spots that needed reseeding (due to grubs this past summer), I didn't have crab grass in those areas before. I started fresh with tilled dirt for the areas, planted at the recommended time of year (Fall-October), put straw down over it to help, watered per instructions, and while fescue grass did grown in, it is full of crappy grass in every area of my yard I used this seed. I also used the Rebels Shade mix as well in certain areas, same result. I expect there to be a small percentage of non-fescue, but not like this. I will now have to reseed this again, or find another product to eliminate the non-fescue grass that has grown in and dominates the area. I pay a company to take care of the yard through the year (applications, fertilization, etc.) but thought I could just do some of the major reseeding myself, probably should have saved some money and paid someone else to do it. :(
