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 I noticed that the bag that I had purchased this year had an out-of-date sell-by date so I returned it for a fresh bag thinking that was the problem.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 2½ 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.

                    Kicked 2 outside dogs out of a fenced side yard into our fenced bigger back yard after they destroyed our side yard by digging holes everywhere & killing what grass was there. 800# later of fill dirt & Scotts Top Soil & not even a full week we saw GREAT results! Living in in Houston I was VERY worried about choosing the Fescue Mix but I wanted SOFT grass like I had growing up in the Chicago 'Burbs. 2 weeks later i am AMAZED at the beauty of it & how quickly it is filling in! I bought a timer to water it all, every 6 hours for 7 minutes. The yard & grass seem to be doing GREAT! Thanks Scotts for a wonderful product. I cannot wait to mow it & fertilize it as time goes on!

                        Even though this product is really designed for more Southern lawns, I thought I would try it in my NE Ohio lawn on some hot dry spots. Well it worked very well! I'm very happy with how it has filled in so far.

                                    I raked, cleaned bare areas (removed weeds), and seeded with Scotts Tall Fescue Grass Seed Mix. Next, I applied the Turf Builder Starter Food plus Weed Preventer. Within 4 weeks, I started seeing 1/4 to 1/2 inch new grass. I also noticed the seeds were weed free. I highly recommend using these seeds with Scotts Turf Builder Starter Food plus Weed Preventer. I'm very happy with my results.

                                                    I have a small yard and try to keep it as neat as possible. I over seed to try and keep out weeds, instead of using harsh chemicals to kill already emerging weeds. Or lesser the practice anyway. The grass comes up looking beautiful yr after yr. With very little maintenance. The water smart coating keeps the seeds moisture intact for easier growing and less watering. Good product.

                                                        The weather here in Ohio has been warm, cool/rainy/and cold. However the seeds are making it in some bare patches where I planted them, great to see, great start for the seeds.

                                                            I have always liked the quality of Scott's products. I have used other seeds and when you pour them in a spreader you can see you are getting "other" things from the bag. With Scott's you get seed which means less chance of growing new weeds with your new grass

Within 2 weeks lawn is definetly thicker! My recommendations is don't buy cheap grass seed it does not grow as well. Great product would definetly use again!

I had some spots in my yard that needed new grass to grow and after using this I have some new grass coming up and it is making my yard look better. Also the grass seed is easy to spread and does not take long to plant wear new grass need planted. Also I got this product for free for my review and all the words are 100% mine.

My biggest reason is its tuff for dog urine to kill and for me that's huge since I have a 200 lb. Great Dane who's bladder is like a fire hydrant. I will be buying more of this product for bare spots in my yard.

Germination was quick and even. Very happy with the results. If I used dome topsoil who knows how much batter it would be. Very pleased. Will repeat process with topsoin inthe back yarf. And compace.

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 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.
