Questions & Answers

Does Vigoro grass seed need to be covered?

I am overseeding my lawn and used several bags of Vigoro grass seed a few days ago. I noticed in the directions there's no mention of covering the seed with dirt or mulch after planting. I've read some articles that say it should be covered and some that don't. Is Vigoro seed different from other brands? Will the seeds germinate this way? Thanks.
Asked by: steve
I rented a spreader and covered the whole area with steer manure to keep the birds away and the manure adds nutrients to the soil. You probably do not even need fertilizer.

I have some bare spots in my lawn. After scratching them to make porous and applying the seed, do I have to use a cover product?

Not much if you have real winter. Soil temperature needs to be constantly over 40 degrees.

20 lb. Grass Tall Fescue Seed is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from grass seed is grass seed If you do not do any grass seed correctly it will fail. Fall is best time or early spring but if you do it when rain is coming your not too brite or if its too hot same results you have to do seed correctly and will produce grass. They all work good but you have to baby it until it roots but this brand has been justbas good as all others i have used the only difference is price and thats it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the grass seed that grows I have spent a lot of money on grass seed over the last 20yrs trying to get my clay soil to grow a nice lawn.I have to say this grass seed ,the Vigoro tall fescue does just as advertized.It grows and starts to fill in the spare spots.For anyone trying to quickly establish a nice lawn in not the best soil go get the Vigoro tall fescue. Stop wasting money on other brands.I cut it between. 3.5 to 4 inches in the summer,3 inches in the spring and fall and I am finally happy with my lawn.Sure if I had great soil I could get all kinds if different grass seed to grow,but I dont I will never buy another brand again.Nice job Vigoro ,you got a new customer and I have kids,they've seen what change the Vigoro tall fescue made their play yard look like. Oh yea ,I did not add anything to the soil ,it is clay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vigoro Fescue with RTF Self Repairing Seed Could be a True Lawn Game Changer I was born, raised and farmed in Iowa (back in the day.) Every lawn was Kentucky bluegrass growing in practically perfect soil. However, I have lived in suburban Northern Virginia for the past twenty-eight years and can tell you that lawn maintenance is a completely different animal. My soil is Wheaton-Glenelg complex with emphasis on Wheaton which is loamy soil consisting of sand, silt and clay. I have the developers from decades ago to thank for that mess. Fescue is the lawn of choice for most of Northern Virginia. It holds its green color through the winter unlike Bermuda that browns down at the first hint of frost and is the last to turn green in the spring. The primary reason I chose Vigoro Tall Fescue is that is supposed to “Fill and Repair Bare Spots.” That is exactly what Kentucky bluegrass has done for generations of cool season lawns. Fescue is more of a clumping grass than a turf grass. Historically, it will not spread at all. The edges of a fescue clump usually develop broad blades that grow outward and can make bare spots less obvious, but it doesn’t really spread. However, this Vigoro blend contains six tall fescue varieties, three of which are advertised as “RTF.” (Seed label picture below.) RTF is ribosome tall fescue. It is a robust ribosome system that causes bluegrass to spread underground. Bluegrass ribosomes are why we never had to overseed our lawns in Iowa. Fescue ribosomes are ordinarily tiny and not capable of underground spreading. That is why in Virginia a serious fescue lawn requires annual overseeding and substantial effort to fix bare spots. RTF self-repairing fescue grass should be a true game changer for my lawn and maybe for the industry. It will take perhaps two years to fully determine if the RTF varieties are really as good as I hope they will be. I can tell you that the germination of the blend is excellent, as you can see in the attached picture. I tilled a strip of soil, to a depth of about three inches and liberally seeded it and lightly raked it in. I covered with straw to conserve moisture and was lucky enough to get some rain. The directions recommend watering three times a day, but I find that burdensome. I also overseeded the other 6000 square feet of lawn and repaired some bare spots. I use a very old Cyclone Seed Sower shown in one of the pictures crisscrossing the lawn at several angles to insure good coverage. I highly recommend this blend and I am looking forward to a great looking lawn that doesn’t require annual overseeding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tall Fescue fast start grass seed I had the opportunity to evaluate this great grass seed. Vigoro brand Tall Fescue. Know for fast germination and fine texture. In the Northern Indiana are it was too cold for an outdoor test as of this date. I started a small sample indoors and find this seed to germinate fast and over 90% germination. It grew fast and established a good root in about one month. Fescue is a fine blade grass and suitable for both sun and partial shade. This seed from Vigoro is also insect resistant. It is a resilient grass that can take longer stretches of reduced water and not die off. In a 4 week period this grass seed sent down over 4 inches of deep root.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good grass needs a lot of water Grass is soft and thin, but looks great. Wish i would have used 2 bags. Till the soil, spread WAY MORE SEED than you think you need, top with soil, Topper red and yellow bag, was my choice, then pack down, and water TWICE daily. Hope the birds dont find your seeds. But GREAT Seed overall. I need another bag for the thin spots. Some bits are yellowish but overall good stuff. Bottom Line: BUY TWO BAGS. I wish did.
