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 I noticed that the bag that I had purchased this year had an out-of-date sell-by date so I returned it for a fresh bag thinking that was the problem.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.

Not the best grass seed

      Comments about Scotts® Turbo Builder Tall Fescue Grass Seed (18346):

      Purchased a bags of seed after clearing out a section of my yard. The brand and the statement on the bag which states seed thrives in summer conditions was what attracted me to the product. Followed the "simple steps for success" even went a step further and covered the seed in steer Manure. I watered daily twice/three times a day. Out of a 3lb bag I did not get one new blade of grass. 3 weeks later I went out and purchased a cheap bag of seed few bucks. Tilled the dirt and all the seed was in the dirt just as it was when I laid it down. Reseeded and the cheap seed grow in a few days.

          Comments about Scotts® Turbo Builder Tall Fescue Grass Seed (18346):

          I bought a 7 lb bag of tall fescue and when I opened it found mostly filler. according to package percentage there was not but about 1 lb of seed the rest was filler which I should have read about it first, and most of the planted area did not grow at all.

              Comments about Scotts® Turbo Builder Tall Fescue Grass Seed (18346):

              I am in Sunny Southern California. One of the easiest location for growing grass. Mild spring, some Rain, sunny days with temperatures around 65 to 75. Purchased two 7lb bags from low's and spent many hours preparing the soil as instructed for reseeding. Made sure the ground stay moist, and everything else. However, It has been more than a month and not a single seed germinated. After a month, the top spread is gone, and I am looking at a bunch of blue little dead seeds everywhere. It was a waste of time and money. Never again would purchasing any of the Scott’s Crab.

                I was tired of using other grass seed and decided to go with what I thought was a high quality seed, so I bought the Scotts products. 9 bags of seed and starter fertilizer for a very large lawn. Most of the product didn't germinate, although many broadleaf weeds did. Yard preparation was in accordance with the Scotts website. After 30 days of very little activity, I went back to the store where I purchased the product to find out that the product had expired 6 months before it was purchased. I was told to write Scotts. I believe that the product will work if not expired, I think I got a bad deal. A product rep should be checking the product for expiration.

                        I love this product for patching problem areas. I work full time so watering 2-3 times a day is a problem. the coating eliminates that worry. I have also found that the coating fools the Birds and my seed isn't eaten up by our feathered friends. The turquoise colored coating also helps me to see just how much seed I have spread and fill in if there are areas I didn't do an even job of spreading. I tell all my friends and family about my good results.

                              Overall, the grass seed was poor. I prepped the soil, planted and watered according to the instructions. The seed really struggled to grow. Only a small portion sprouted and most did not make it long-term.

We used this product on areas that we deemed too big to use the patch work solution and needed alot of reseeding. It sprouted quickly, and soon the sparse lawn looked thick and full again.

                                              A good grass seed that germinated and stayed all summer, there were a few patches that needed reseeding but overall, I was satisfied with the results. I'm not 100% sure it saved any water, last summer was a decent summer for rain fall.

                                                Love the whole line of Scotts products. My lawn looks as good as my neighbors, finally! Some (me) says it looks even better. Highly recommend.

                                                    Just put it down last fall and had good germination, waiting for spring!

                                                      I live in an apartment so I'm unable to use this product but have known families who have and I've heard of its ease of use and quality yards it creates. I would recommend this to my friends.

                                                          I used Scotts Turf Builder tall fescue this past spring to cover an are approximately 20x 15 feet. Within a week the grass was growing. By three weeks the entire area was covered and dense. Great product.

                                                              Scotts Tall Fescue Mix is a great alternative to the standard bluegrass/perennial mixes that wilt at the first sign of heat. Germination does take 10+ days and you definitely need to keep a moist seedbed like any seed but I find the seedlings to be rather tough once they've reached about .5" tall. Start this seed in the fall and you will experience a nice lush lawn during spring of the following year, seeding in the spring is a waste of time, money and effort.

Also the water aid added to the seed repels birds from eating it which is a plus. Kow my cat hates me because I took away his daily buffet. But my yard looks good and is helps a lot in yellow areas were pets dry the grass. Excellent product and highly recommended.

                                                                                                    I am a Scotts fan anyway and this product is another in their line of quality product. In the wet coast, this product is doing very well in my lawn.
