I've been using the Tall Fescue Mix to repair bare spots and to overseed my 20 year old blue grass lawn since the spring of 2010. The mix germinates rapidly and once established provides a green lawn even during the hot central Ohio summers without additional watering. Although the tall fescue grass blades are courser in appearance than the blue grass, the fescue seems to blend in well.

I have rated the Turf Builder® Tall Fescue Mix 2-star because of the inconsistency of the product and the resulting problems it causes the consumer. Last year I reviewed this grass seed giving it a 5-star rating with the view that it was the best grass seed that I had used. What happened this year? I began re-seeding several patches where unwanted Bermuda grass had invaded. I still had a small amount of the grass seed from last year. I then began planting using up this bag and then continuing with a bag purchased this year. The area where last year’s seed was used had grass seed germinating within a week whereas the area with the new seed showed only a few blades of grass after 17 days. I noticed that the bag that I had purchased this year had an out-of-date sell-by date so I returned it for a fresh bag thinking that was the problem. In calling Scott’s help line, the assistant did not think that it would cause the kind of problem that I was having. I replanted all the areas that I had planted with grass seed from this year. After about 21/2 weeks, I had only marginally improved germination - and nowhere near what would be needed to be acceptable. By this time, I was becoming frustrated and annoyed because the optimum time for seeding fescue grass was rapidly disappearing. I noticed with the bag from last year that the seed covering was smooth. The seed covering for the two bags that I purchased this year was rough. I decided to try one more time because of my great success last year. Upon opening the third bag for this year, I noticed that the seed covering was smooth, so I was hopeful. Just to be sure that I was not doing something wrong, I replanted one area with seed from bag 2 and another area from bag 3. After one week, the seed from bag three germinated as thickly as one would expect. The area from bag 2 shows no sign of germination. Since there was a correlation between the outer surface of the seed and its ability to germinate, I hypothesize that the manufacturing process is not consistent, and that the rough water-smart coating covering the seeds prevented them from germinating. Since the non-germinating seed resulted in a considerable duplication of my time and a waste of water, I can no longer recommend this product. If you are lucky, and think that you will pick a good bag, then it should be fine. Just be aware, if you do not, you will likely become frustrated.

              I have had mixed results with this grassseed. I can't blame the product due to a rather dry fall. I didn't water as much as I should have, so I'm kinda suprise that any grass came up at all.

                  I recently had to correct some drainage issues in front of my house. I used the grass seed as directed and the results were as great. The seed germinated in about 9 days and after about 3 weeks the grass is doing fine. I got a late start on this project but with another couple weeks of nice weather it should be fine for next year.

                          There are many types of grass seed. Tall Fescue grass seed is defined by grass that grows rapidly during spring and fall. Tall Fescue is well adapted to sunny or partially shady areas, therefore making it a very good all around grass seed. Scotts grass seed is a superior brand. If you prepare the soil correctly and use Scotts quality seed you will reap the benefits. If you do it right the first time, you won't have to do it again.

                              We used this seed in some areas that had died out this summer. We now have baby grass growing. We also used it to over-seed other areas and have noticed young grass growing there too. I believe as with any seed, some seed will not take (or birds will eat it first?), but all in all we are happy with this product.

                                          Not much to say about grass seed, but this works rather well. Takes about 1 week to start seeing growth, and like any other seed, you must water several times a day to keep moist. Good product.

                                            The seeds are covered with something blue in color and are probably 10 to 20 times the size of an uncoated grass seed. I did not feel like this seed germinated any easier than regular seed. Because the seed is so much larger there is obviously fewer seeds in the same size bag as regular grass seed. If you are covering small areas or using it for spot repair it is fine but if you have a large area or are overseeding I would stick with regular grass seed.

                                              Although the product has good features it did not perform well for me. I have an area that is not in full shade but has not done well even with sun/shade grasses. The ground seems to be dead to grow things including weeds. This product sprouted but came up extremely thin considering the amount of seed I put down. The ground is not hard but could be a little less compact. NOTHING I have planted in this one area has done any good. It obviously is not the product but the place. Grass is growing everywhere else.

I've tried all the big box stores brands of seed, fertilizers and other products and rarely if at all get good results. Name brand products like Scotts have always produced well in my yard. I used this product to overseed some patchy areas in my yard with excellent results. We'll see how it winters. To me it's worth the price.

It was a really hot summer for our area and the rest of my lawn was starting to go dormant. I had an area that needed to be seeded, so I just followed the directions and about 10 days later grass started growing. I did also buy Scott's lawn soil which is recommended for when you seed your lawn.

                                                                          Application instructions were easy to follow. Germination rate followed the time scale on bag. Grasslings are now sprouting. My only concern: Humid and hot dry conditions in the southern NJ area occur in July and August, so actually testing the durability of this seed will not occur until next summer 2017. Heat, drought and disease are prevalent here and I look forward to seeing if this product holds up over the winter into next summer. So far so good, but stay tuned.

You have to follow directions and make sure the seeds stay moist. I have mine with a timer. Waters every 5 hours or so. Will be thick and lush in 2 more weeks.

Recommend wearing latex gloves as the blue coating can be messy on the hands.

                                                                                                      I had two problem areas to deal with. Bare spots and thin grass coverage. I applied this product to both areas at the same time. I loosened the soil on bare areas and then applied the grass seed. With over seeding I applied the product as per directions on bag. Watering was done according to directions on bag. I saw growth in about 8-10 days. Grass came up very nice and full, with lush green color. Product was easy to use and I will use it again to repair bare spots in my lawn. Try it you will like it.

It was a very hot summer and my lawn took a beating. I planted the seed and it came in nicely. Can't wait to see how it grows next year.

The small sample in one area of seeding shows a very small blade of grass The heavy rain which we have had lately has hurt the seed from taking hold. I intend to reseed this coming week. Please resend in about two weeks.
