Grass Seed Buying Guide
Bring new life to your lawn with the Vigoro Contractor's Northern Grass Seed Mix. Specially formulated for northern regions, it provides lush grass even on tough-to-grow lawns. The coated seeds retain 6X more water than uncoated seeds, gradually releasing water back to the plant during the establishment phase. This coating also adds nutrients and fungicide to promote quick root growth and protect the seedlings from disease. Perfect for sunny and shady areas, this northern grass seed mix provides temporary ground cover and erosion control.

Not happy
The seed did not grow. It's been about 2 weeks and I've watered it. I don't know if it washed away or if the birds ate it or if the seed was old but it did not grow.

DO NOT BUY
The worst seed in have ever bought. I aerated this year after pool install. I mowed lawn to 2 inches and overseeded and filled in low spots with 2 yards of screened topsoil. I watered daily for 14 days and almost nothing came up. the weather was perfect early oct 70+ during the day and 50+ at night, perfect cool season grass weather

      I put this grass seed in a very shaded area under some trees, where nothing grows. I raked it into the soil At night we had a hard rain. After that, the grass popped up, and now, a week later it is very thick.

        Large Clumps of Dead Moldy Seed
        As soon as I started pouring the seed into the spreader large clumps of moldy dead seed fell out of the bag into the spreader. After fishing those clumps out I was left with much less seed than I actually needed and paid for. 2 bags were a waste of money.

              I am very impressed with the germination rate of this seed. This performs as well as much more expensive turf type fescue I have used in the past. I will definitely buy this again. This grew in non-ideal growing conditions - little rain, little sprinkling on my part. I planted in early April in North Carolina and these pictures are from May 31st. Wow!

              VIGORO 7 lbs. Tall Fescue Grass Seed Blend with Water Saver Seed Coating is an excellent product. I actually tested it against another premium quality seed preferred locally and it germinated approximately a full week sooner and produced stronger growth without a lot of watering. We had a rather dry couple of weeks after I planted the bare spots and, admittedly, was very pleased with the rapid germination. Another plus, the percentage of Vigoro seed that germinated was higher than the other brand which surprised me as well. I usually mix this 30/60 with contractors blend because the fescue is slower to germinate but I love the look and feel later in the summer.
