    I like the features of this grass seed. The lack of filler gives me a lot more coverage. I was able to spread seeds to an area approximately 5 yards by 1 yard. It was nice that they had instructions on the back of the bag that are easy to read and follow. I was surprised that the birds and squirrels left it alone, at least every time I looked out the window. It got windy a few hours after I had sowed the seeds, and we have had several rains and storm systems come through since as well, but the seed has not blown away. It looks like I am getting some early growth from some of the seeds. I am so excited that I can easily restore the shady lawn area under a huge tree.

    I have a tree down at the bottom of my driveway where I have had trouble with grass growing and in the winter plows tearing it up . I cleaned and raked the area, mixed in some compost to the soil, seeded it, and raked in some fresh top soil on top. I took a picture to track the progress. I watered regularly but didnt see much growth. It has been over 2 weeks and there is some new growth but not what I expected. I live in the northeast and realize that the weather may be playing a factor in it. I plan on giving it another week before I add more seed and soil to the area.

    I got this Greenview Dense Shade grass seeds for the yard area under my trees that barely get any sun because the trees are close together and very shaded. After about half a month the grass started to grow a little bit but very slowly so not sure if it’s waiting for warmer weather to really do its thing or my area is just way too shaded. The grass isn’t as thick as well, so again it might be waiting for better weather and my timing isn’t right for growing grass yet. It does seem to grow better than the other grass seeds I’ve tried in the past so I’m hopefully by summer time that area will have grass.

    I wanted to wait till the grass got tall and green to write my review. All the see came up was fast growing and looks great! I highly recommend this seed! Works really good in shady spots where the sun doesn’t shine much!

  5. Erinefes

    We ordered these seeds to help get grass growing on a hill under some big oak trees. These patches have been impossible to grow anything on due to the lack of sunlight.
    Regular grass seed does absolutely fine on every part of the yard except here. Hopefully this blend of seed will hold up over time. The mix includes:
    38.5% Fairmont Chewing Fescue,
    20.01% Exacta II GLSR Perenial Ryegrass, 20% Man O’war Perennial Ryegrass, 10% Chorus Creeping Red Fescue, and 10% Sword Hard Get with 0% weeds and 1% inhert ingredients

    I am happy with this dense shade mixture of grass seed. I am sure it’s going to be great in my backyard. There are so many trees that block the sun so grass doesn’t grow very well. It looks like this mixture is very high quality and will work great. I have raked and am just waiting for the ground to warm up more this Spring and then I will plant this seed. I have had a hard time finding a seed for dense shaded area so I am pleased with this one. I am looking forward to a beautiful lawn in my backyard!

  7. Mg1079

    I received the product and was truly amazed by the results. My yard has a dense covering of tree foliage and it is hard to get sunlight. The seeds grew very
    quickly and created a beautiful plush and soft area. I finally have a place to set my lawn chairs and takeoff my shoes to enjoy the feeling of fresh grass between my feet. My kids have a soft place to play now and I will continue to cover my entire lawn in no time and create an oasis that I never thought was possible.

  8. Whoray

    I got this grass seed because my house sits in the woods and I have alot of shade surrounding my house . The first thing I want to say about this seed is that the bag isn’t full of junk seed mix and fillers like I have gotten in the past . And even though it is early spring here the grass seems to be coming in very evenly and full . I am very happy with the results , I have finally found a grass seed that works well in the shade , thank you.

    Did entire backyard (1200 sq feet) in the fall. Followed the prep directions and added some topsoil to the backyard, used a scotts hand Whirlybird spreader to get consistent coverage, also used the ‘seeding success’ pellets , watered as specified and did about 1/3 section of yard at a time to see how it went. Worked fabulous – about 90 percent success. Note that the variety of grass is not like Kentucky blue – is is finer and so far looks like it will not be a tall growing mix but it has a nice shade of deeper green and it covers well. Only thing I would say is that if you use the pellets (which expand when watered) be careful to spread them at the recommended 25% and avoid putting down too much in any spot – I found that the areas that did not take were where I had too many pellets and I think it kind of smothered the seeds and didn’t allow them to germinate.

    This is the second time I have use the Dense Shade Seed. The first time it work out well in the Spring and Summer, but heavy rains in Northern Virginia and floods killed a great deal of the grass under the tree. This Fall, I did not get the same results. The Dense Shade seed did not work but about 60% of the area. I will happier when I can talk to your experts directly, about seed, top soil and fertilizers.

    This Greenview grass seed is made for growing grass in shady areas. I just resurfaced my dirt driveway and needed to plant new grass within the disturbed areas along the edges of the driveway. While there are some sunny patches. Much of the ground is shaded by the tree line. I spread this weed last weekend and there is already grass coming up in those areas. I am pretty pleased with the effectiveness of this product!

    It’s a little to early but we planted this seed on the side of our house where the neighbor have very unkempt trees and weeds. The nice grass we always had has totally disappeared and we had practically bare ground and mostly most. We cleaned up all the moss and planted the seed. It looks like it is going to take well. We have never had any luck with other grass seed until now. It’s about a half in long right now.

  13. Korin1113

    I used this grass seed to fix our yard where cars were parking when it was really wet. We have a very large tree where I planted it and it is starting to sprout! You can tell how think it is going to come in. The coverage was great for the small space we needed to plant the seed. It has fairly easy maintenance. I personally think it is hard to find a grass seed to plant in a shaded area but this stuff works!

  14. Julia81

    This GreenView Fairway Formula Grass Seeds for Dense Shade is perfect for yards surrounded by lots of trees. I have neighbors on all sides of my house with giant trees that keep my backyard shaded for most of the day, especially along my fence lines. I applied this grass seed and am seeing it start to sprout where I’ve never been able to grow grass before. I love it and definitely recommend!

  15. Pezo

    We recently moved into a house where the yard had not been a priority. The back yard is under a canopy of trees and only gets filtered sunlight. It was dirt, onions, and a few weeds. We did a little raking to loosen the dirt and remove the weeds, put a thick layer of this dense shade grass seed down, and watched our yard transform into a lush, green, grassy yard. Absolutely wonderful

  16. drimeth

    I received a small bag of GreenView Fairway Formula Grass Seed Dense Shade Mixture to review, and it seemed to be working decently. We placed a good amount of seeds in a spot where we cut down a tree about a decade ago where the grass doesn’t seem to want to grow. It spread evenly and easily, but then we hit below freezing temps again so I can’t tell if they will grow or not!

  17. rena26

    We have some problem areas in our yard, under a tree and near privacy fence where we have trouble growing grass due to shade or mostly dark spaces. We spread GreenView Fairway Grass Seed on those areas and are starting to see the seeds sprouting. It will take a few more weeks and some warm weather. We are excited to have those areas fill in with grass.

  18. Maxie103

    I got this seed to use in a couple areas in the backyard that while we could never get the grass to grow in the shade beneath the trees at the edge of our property. We tried this GreenView mixture for Dense Shade and it did the trick. It has filled nicely in, looks good and blends in nicely with surrounding grass. Great quality seed for sure.

  19. MamaB

    When I received my Greenview Fairway Formula Grass Seed Dense Shade Mixture it was in a very sturdy bag. We used a seed spreader to put it out in the backyard because it doesn’t get much sun. It was very easy to see where we had already been. There was no extra filler and it seems to be coming up great.

  20. Kyndra

    I put this grass seed down a little over 3 1/2 weeks ago now, covered with straw and watered and there still isn’t anything sprouting. I am pretty disappointed since the bags states that the grass will begin to sprout in as little as 7-14 days. In my opinion, save your money and go with another option.

  21. tryitchicago

    Excellent grass seed that grows well in dense shade. I have a very shady area in the backyard and the grass there is very patchy. I followed directions on back of bag and seed sprouted into nice green grass! Can’t wait to see how it does through the summer season.

  22. AWR84

    I got this a month ago. I spread the seeds in my backyard from where there is so much shade my grass doesn’t grow good back there. My son also has tore the yard up with his go kart. It has started to sprout so I’m excited to see how good it does. I would recommend it

  23. Strohcephus

    I’m glad I found this product. I have multiple spots in my yard that get little and no sunlight, and turn to dirt and mud throughout the year. This seed is perfect for those spots. Make sure you follow the instructions, and work up the ground or it will not grow.

  24. Ashley21

    This stuff works wonderful I bought a couple brands and they didn’t do nothing in the patch were I had no grass but this stuff is made for places where there is barley any sun that hits and it actually works I can’t believe it. I highly recommend this

  25. Paul

    I got this to plant grass around my trees and it worked great covered great grass started to grow in a couple days with great coverage no problems looks real nice. I have had problems with this area in the past. But no more I am very satisfied

  26. Thouz83

    I got this Dense Shade mix and it did a great job filling in the areas shaded by my trees. I prepped the soild and spread the seed and watered it a bit every day. It looks great and filled in the bare dirt areas in the shade of my trees.
