Any idea what kind of seed this Sun and Shade mix has? We have Kentucky Bluegrass, don't want to over-seed with Fescue or something.

Anecdote: I bought the (generic?) Pennington brand at Lowes, and the Scott's ($) and had more luck with Pennington. I'll try Pennington again this year. I'm talking plain sun and shade seed, not this filler stuff.

I just used this and I believe it's Kentucky bluegrass and a perennial rye. The perennial rye seems to germinate in just a few days and the KBG is right behind it. They may change this mix location dependant. I'm about an hour southwest of Chicago.

A lot of people commenting that this stuff sucks, but I have a feeling they didn't put the work in to make it not suck. I've had nothing but success with this. Don't expect every seed to germinate, but I'd say if I had to toss a number out...I have had at least 80% of the spot treated areas germinate. I haven't been amazing at watering but I've amended my soil with humic acid and kelp over top of all this and watered as I could. If you suck at watering, try to get it down during a week where the forecast has rain and it should be enough to get some germination going, at least in my case it was.

It's a mix and Bermuda does not do well in shade.

Does any1 know what sort of seed is it? I am on east coast ( cool season grass type). And is now a good time to seed? I did seed late march and have some decent luck with that. Landscaper put down some spray to kill weeds about two weeks ago which seemed to have worked.

Specifications say this germinates in 6-10 days. I believe rye grass is the only grass seed that germinates that fast..... so I would guess this is mostly rye grass seed for quick germination for fixing small patches, but it may not be what you want depending on what you already have.

Around here, most people have KBG lawns. You can buy 10# of straight 100% KBG seed for $30 for comparison.

You might want to ask the landscaper what exactly he sprayed. Some herbicides will prevent any seeds (grass seed too) from germinating for a period of up to 6 weeks. If you seed before the herbicide wears off, you could have poor germination rate for your seeds.

Anyone know if I can use grub killer while seeding? In Michigan, the spring season begins beginning of May. I have some weeds, need to seed/overseed areas of my lawn as well as put grub killer down as a precautionary measure. Any particular order I should follow?

I got it last fall at full price and it works great in the Midwest. I used just Scott's seed in the past but didn't work well. This stuff is great but doesn't have much seed in it.

Same here. I've had good luck with the Pennington Sun and Shade. I had a small bag from last year that still had some seed in it, figured I'd give it a try, and it came in nicely.

I generally do some patch work for small areas every spring. My go to process is dig out the old area, usually about 12 inches by 12 inches and 3 to 4 inches deep, put new top soil down, seed, water every day unless it rains. This process has served me well.

Where to buy good seeds? Any URL?
Honestly, a local supply shop (ir a hardware store or something) will probably be cheapest. I live in saint louis, and I can't find it anywhere cheaper, online or IRL, than the local handyman truevalue shop down the street. They have giant bins of grass seed and sell it by the pound.

Makes it much easier to just 'overseed' like crazy.

I have used this with relatively good success so I just bought a bag to fill in the patchy areas. I do use regular seeds for overseeding as it is more cost effective.
Same. I seed the whole lawn and use this on patches. Had noticeable growth in 10 days (with 10-15 minutes of watering in the morning and again in the evening). I live in Maryland

Do you know what type of seed is inside? Im in NY and wondering if it will be suitable for my lawn. Also is now a good time to seed even though its a little late in the spring?
