Answer This Question

A:  I wouldn't recommend it. The temp where I'm at didn't reach 100 this year and mine was struggling. I had to water it constantly. i hope that helps.

    A:  It's fescue, it will not due well in high heat or full sun, it will start to wilt when temps reach above 95 degrees.

    by|Sep 16, 2022

      A:  This is a customer forum. Please contact manufacturer for an answer to your question.

      by|Sep 16, 2022

        A:  We had a warm dry summer but only in the low 90,s. It browned out and looked dead. When we received rain after this about 80% came back. 

        by|Sep 18, 2022

          A:  Yes, during those hotter summer days more water is required.

            Q:Will this grass survive the harsh winters of Western New York (zip code 14020) and is it drought resistant to a Southern lawn exposure during summer months that gets a good 8 hours of sun and heat?

            A:  My experience with this seed has been great.

            by|Oct 2, 2022

              A:  Once established, yes. With any grass overseeding may be required depending on winter conditions.

              by|Aug 14, 2022

                A:  It didn't work for me. All grass needs water and regular care. I tried it in sandy soil at our seasonal home, it was good at first but didn't survive the winter.

                  A:  I would not store them in your garage if it get hot in the summer.  I store my leftover seed inside where it climate controlled.  In a climate controlled environment the seeds will last up to two years.

                  by|Jun 25, 2022

                    A:  Can be stored 12-18 months without a significant decrease in the germination rate.

                    by|Jun 25, 2022

                      A:  The seeds will be fine for that length of time. Seeds bought in the spring in a SEALED BAG can be planted in the fall. Seeds bought last year will germinate at about a 50% rate.

                      by|Jun 24, 2022

                        A:  Your good. Look at the date on the bag as to when it was tested. I usually get a bag in early Feb, seed before a big snow and again in the fall with the same bag. Even used some a year later. This seed is really good, even withstands the 130lb dog

                        by|Jun 25, 2022

                          A:  Storing seed in a cool dry area, seed will have several years of shelf life.

                              Buyer Beware - Product is not as advertised
                              Not ALL Fescue as advertised on ALL marketing, 15% bluegrass. No other seedmentioned anywhere on the bag, the HD site or MFG brochure. Exclusively Fescue Bought for the RTF fescue / ALL Fescue. I made sure there were no other seed types such as KY bluegrass because it does not perform well in the southeast transitional zone and when it does, it requires extensive watering. 15% of this seed is uselss to me and not what I paid for Not Home Depot's fault.

                                The blend has changed
                                I bought this seed last year and it was 60% RTF between 3 cultivars out of 5, but this year there is only 40% RTF from 1 cultivar out of 5 and two of them aren’t even fescue. They’re bluegrass. I specifically wanted all fescue like last time for my shaded back yard. Not happy about it and wish they would disclose what is in the bag before you buy it. I really liked this seed for the price, but it seems like they are cheaping out now.

                                  Only 9.9% RTF seeds!
                                  More expensive then regular fescue seed. Yet it's only 10% of the RTF seed which is advertised all over the bag! Not worth it. Buy regular RTF seed instead of this 10% RTF mix

                                    Turned out great !
                                    Not much to say , planted the seed , added starter fertilizer and Peat moss. Kept soil moist until germination which took about 9 days. Attached is a picture of of the grass before which I killed, Tilled and re-seeded.

                                      So far so good
                                      Planted on 9-28 mostly for over seeding. I had about 5lb left and used in an area around my garden. No peat or straw just a bit of starter fertilizer. On 10-7 it showed a decent sign of growth and endured a really bad downpour. Located in South MI

                                          Ordered on 9/14, received on 9/20. A 25 pound bag with a Scott’s rotary on 10 and it covers right at 5000 square feet. I am over-seeding a MD lawn that’s mostly shade free. Attached is a picture of the seed blend and you can see approximately 60% is RTF.

                                            Seedlings sprouted in about 6 days and have taken off ever since. Hopefully the rhizomes grow as well as advertised and any fill in the few voids created by squirrels digging. Extremely happy with purchase.

                                            I write this just to try to help. I bought water saver bc of reviews. Sparse growth. Then in store, guy recommended Scott’s 4in 1. I had some water saver left so did an experiment. Look for yourself. Both purchased at home depot in East Palo Alto.
