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 I noticed that the bag that I had purchased this year had an out-of-date sell-by date so I returned it for a fresh bag thinking that was the problem.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

Grass Seed that struggles to grow

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

    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 recently bought our house #4, The lawn was in poor shape. 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. Thank you Scotts

                          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.

                                                    i use Scotts water smart in an area where it was really shaded and bald Because of a Japanese Maple that's there. I used scots water smart in spring and fall And our yard has filled in beautifully. You would have never known there was nothing but dirt in that area. The grass is a lush green and looks healthy and full. I would seed whe I knew we would have a heavy rain or a few days of rain and it worked really good.

                                                                                    Had tried other grass seed in the past to spot patch and I kept getting no results at all, some other seeds were not as clean and got weeds growing instead. 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.

                                                                                              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.
