Tall fescue is valued for its adaptability to a wide range of climates and its tolerances for cold, heat, drought and shade. Ideal for the northern and transition zones, Pennington The Rebels Tall Fescue has represented the finest quality of tall fescue on the market for decades. This grass is tough. It has thick, deep, and dense roots that result in excellent drought and traffic tolerance. In areas of your yard that receive 4 to 6 hours of sunlight, plant it in early spring or early fall and see results in 8 to 16 days. This 20-pound bag covers up to 5,000 square feet for overseeding an existing lawn and 1,660 square feet for starting a new lawn from scratch. The Roots of the Rebels Brand dates back to 1979, when turf researchers at Rutgers University released a revolutionary new grass. Known as ‘Rebel,’ it was the very first example of what’s now known as turf-type tall fescue. Compared to traditional tall fescue, Rebel offered lower growth, finer texture, darker color and denser turf — plus the drought tolerance that makes turf-type tall fescue a homeowner favorite. Generations later, with up to 40 percent more roots than ordinary grass, The Rebels Brand Extended Root seed varieties represent the best turf-type tall fescue on the market. With roots like those, it’s only natural that The Rebels Brand carries the Pennington name.

    I purchased this seed last fall and seeded my yard after putting down 2 loads of topsoil. I seeded raled and strawed the entire yard. I got about 70% germination, which is excellent with no watering system but mother nature. This seed is hearty and easy to grow. Highly recommended

    I live in Fuquay Varina, North Carolina. I planted Rebel’s Southern Classic Tall Fescue blend and Scott’s Turf builder starter food on October 4, 2021. I water twice a day for 30 minutes according to the directions. It sprouted October 10, 2021. Today November 7, 2021 it is about 6 inches tall. I’m watering it once a day now for 30 minutes according to the directions. I’m very happy with Rebels.

    I worked for years at the biggest landscaping company in the Carolinas. I know what I am doing. I cust my grass closs and raked it out. I am 74 and spent 5 hours slit seeding my yeard then seeded and fertized and use Scott’s starter fertilizer. I got no germination and we had been in drought conditions for the entire summer so I ran my water bill up $200. All total it cost me over $400 not counting labor. I only make 13K per year on SS so this was a big blow and now I have no grass. refused to replace the seed or the money. I have spent thousands of dollars at that store and will never enter the door again. I took them my receipt and pictures before when I seeded on 9/26/16 and almost a month later 10/21/16 and not a blade of grass. First two ics when I slit seedded on 9/26 second pics was 10/21 after watering daily. Last pic was my yard last year.

    The grass seed itself germinated well and produced a fine dark green blade. However now my lawn has been taken over by quack grass. None of my neighbors have it and I didn’t have any before last fall when I over seeded with this product. This leads me to believe that my new weeds were part of this mix. I will know have to kill the yard and start over from scratch.

  5. Tennessee-Dano

    I tilled up my yard and started from dirt. I fertilized it and got the ground ready for seed. The grass came up about 14 days, it looked a little thin, but as a week went by, the grass became very thick and green. I gave it 4 stars and the only thing that kept it from getting 5 stars was there was more weeds than i expected from a premium seed. I had to put out a layer of weed killer after the grass took hold. Other than that, i have the best lawn in the neighborhood. I would recommend this despite the weed issue. Your neighbors will be jealous!

    After talking to the Rebel rep at our local store, we purchased this along with pelletized lime and starter fertilizer to overseed our lawn. We aerated it, prepped the bare spots, applied the lime per directions, overseeded and fertilized per instructions on the bags and watered daily for 3 weeks with very little if any of the seeds sprouting. We purchased this brand also because of the so-called money back guarantee. We followed the directions on the seed bag to put in a claim to refund our purchase price and to this day we have no refund and no grass. Back to square one and will not purchase any product made by this brand or its affiliates.
