      Q:Are there different fescues included in this blend? I'm looking for medium blade tall turf-like fescue, I do not want sheep, chewings, hard or red, which are finer blade fescues. Cannot see a breakdown of what's in the bag.

      Answer This Question

      A:  The analysis tag on each of the bags will have the seed varieties' content by weight. The varieties do change as improved ones are made available. The blend is made up of Tall Fescue and Tall Fescue RTF varieties.

          The grass seed grew only about 60% growth and I watered it every day for 10 days but it did not grow like it said that it would and I put down some top soil as well on top of the seed

          Moldy, smelled terrible, impossible to spread as it was in clumps.

            It's only growing weeds!
            I bought this same seed in the Spring and it worked as it should. However, much of the grass died with the stress of the summer. I bought two more bags this Fall. I prepped the yard, overseeded, and watered. After 14 days nothing but the start of weeds coming up. It's awful! What a waste of time, money, and water! Any grass in the photos is established grass, this seed only produced these weeds!

              *** READ THE SEED LABEL!! ***
              Guys, If you're looking to fill in a blank spot and dont care about the grass type, then that's fine. Annual Ryegrass (Italian Ryegrass) will grown in quickly, however, it is an annual grass which means it will only last the 1 year. My lawn looked horrible the following spring... This frustration led me to learn more about lawn care, grass type and redo my entire lawn. If you want a nice lawn, YOU HAVE TO GET GREAT GRASS SEEDS, PERIOD!. i learned my lesson.

                Good at first
                I planted this seed in the fall of 2021 and the grass came in thick and handled the winter well, but it does not offer premium drought tolerance like the front of the bag says. It does get hot here (zone 5, Chicagoland) but the rest of my lawn survived this 3 week dry spell and you can tell the spots I reseeded with this are brown and dead. This brand has made me afraid to use tall fescue in my hard in the future.

                  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

                    Moldy Seed
                    The bag contained clumps of moldy looking seed. See attached photos.

                      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!

                      Aerate your yard, throw this out with Vigoro starter fertilizer and you'll have a healthy, sturdy yard in a month. Doesn't take much water to get going. I water once a week in the fall and 2 times per week in the warm months. Been very happy with the performance.
