  1. No more snow

    Ok, I feel your pain. Here’s our method; which I determined to be the most economical. We have 0.21 acres (12K square feet) of lawn. Our 1st experimental bare spot filled-in in 9 days! My 2 YouTube ‘mentor videos’ were from Rodge, from This Old House, (How to revive a brown lawn), and the 2nd one being (Grass Seed Test PROOF! Grass Seeding Before and After Results (LAWN CARE). With my wife’s good back, I then instructed her to scrape the top 3 inches of soil, using a bow rake. To save $$, we reused and had her amend the native soil, by adding ‘Sta-Green Flower and Vegetable Garden Soil Plus Fertilizer’-worked into the soil. She lay the seed in, not overly, but just to uniformly cover the area. I then watered the seed (before her covering it with a 1/4 inch of new soil-to protect from birds and the Sun). Once covered, I watered a second time. Then kept the area wet, by watering twice a day, for two weeks, then once a day for the 3rd week. None if it had rained. Tiny grass under the soil could be seen, we thought , within 3 days. Then nothing changed much for 8 days, other than new grass peeping through, under the top soil, in a total of 29 spots. We were sure we had failed, due to the native soil, we thought, may had been too clay-like. However, it did not appear to be clay at all, originally, when my wife worked it in, but after we saw what appeared to be ants building a clay-like mound, in one corner, we believed it to be. Then, on the ninth day, like some kind of miracle, my wife comes back-in, saying that it had sprouted all over. I went to check, and sure thing, it had sprouted throughout. I thought my neighbors fell sorry for me and had played a joke on me, by planting, in the middle of the night, grass all over the worked area ! But after a closer look, it was clear, that in fact, it had worked! The grass was so close & evenly spaced together, that it would had been impossible to get it in ! In hindsight, I would have her add more seed- overseeding

    I received a free sample of the sun & shade to try out. It is much better than other patch mixes I’ve tried. It contains the right amount of fertilizer and it is coated to ensure a higher germination rate. I used it on some bare patches in my lawn. Since the weren’t large areas, I used my Scotts hand spreader and it went much farther than I anticipated it would. I will definitely buy this in the future when I have over seeding to do or bare patches to fill. I love that it’s for sun or shade. I’ve already recommended it to friends or family.

    The mix did its job. After 2.5 weeks the planted grass was over 3″ tall. It was in a mix of sun and shade throughout the day and with the heat and humidity of Texas, with daily watering it came up really well. Used it it fill in an area by our back pond, so the spot was pretty barren before. With the new grass it looks so much better!

    I failed the 1st year when I planted this seed with watering. I was tired of the weeds in my front porch area so I applied a herbicide which turned everything back to brown(about 1 week later). I racked the area and applied top soil made sure the area was leveled. I sprinkled the seed by hand (this bag was kept in a shed over a Nj winter) this was done in early May 2019. The most important product I applied with the seed was Ez -Straw mulch this keeps the birds at bay or any rodents trying to snatch up the seeds. The seeds do turn white and thought it was not working for days. But all the rain in May and with the ez straw mulch keeping the seeds moist I am all green in my front porch. Amazing project success with this seed.

    I have been trying for years to attain a lush green lawn, but every year I end up with bare spots and thin areas. I lightly raked our front lawn and applied Pennington’s Smart Seed Sothern Sun & Shade Mix with our hand-held spreader. We were blessed with a few light Spring rains recently and it has really helped this seed grown. This grass seed is heat tolerant and grows well even without daily watering. It’s been two weeks and the grass is filling in nicely. This seed makes it easy for someone without a green thumb to grow grass easily!

    I had hoped to hit the “easy button” and do the one step process. Experienced in lawn care. The whole lawn was cropped and dethatched ensure proper contact with the soil. This seed is so sticky I had trouble getting my broadcast spreader to lay it down evenly. So, more than 2 weeks later, with religious watering, less than half the seed has come up and where it is growing it’s in splotchy clumps. Lot’s of white seed on the ground not showing any signs of growth. Never again. Today, I’m going to buy a different brand to fill in all the places where this seed failed and hope the color matches well enough.

    Pennington Smart Seed Southern Sun & Shade Mix Has been the only grass seed that has ever sprouted on the side of my house that refused to have grass. When I saw the small grass sprouts I screamed with joy and may have startled the neighbors but after trying everything on the market and finally this worked got me super excited.

  8. The Steady Gardener

    Bought this 20 lb bag of seed and followed the instructions on putting it on my lawn. But after about 14 days I noticed more clover growing than grass. With the rain we have had in the past few days, the clover is out pacing the grass. Now I have a yard with half clover and half grass. I doubt if I’ll buy this brand again

  9. Sashaw

    This seed works ok depending on where you need it. We tried it in two spots, one that is mostly shade and one that gets a lot of sun. The sun spot filled in a little, but the shade spot is having trouble. Weather could have played a factor in this as well so I can’t totally fault the seed.
