I bought this online. I had about 2,800 - 3,000 sq. feet to seed. I saw this online and it said a 7 pound bag would see 2800 sq. feet. So, I bought an extra 3 pound bag to make sure I had enough. Well.. the 2,800 sq. feet that's in the description is for RESEEDING grass only. NOT for new lawn seeding. If you look on the back of the bag, it says it covers 2,800 for reseeding lawns and 1,400 sq. feet for new lawns. The 3 pound was also only half the square footage is well. So I had exactly HALF of what I needed. I also bought the MAG-I-CAL.. which ALSO doesn't cover as much as posted in the description. However.. having said all that. Now that the seed has been planted... it's coming up great.
These Jonathan Green 10323 Black Beauty Ultra Grass seeds are excellent, and fast growing seeds. I live in the pacific northwest, wehre we get a lot of rain and we have some shady spots in our yard with acidic soil. I had several spots on my lawn where I had trouble growing grass for the last five years. One spot was in a shaded area under ceder trees. I had tried may other seeds from a local big box hardware store, including JB seeds. Those grass seeds did not thrive in the difficult areas. This Janathan Green seed is on the expensive side, at almost $95 dollars for a bag. However, it was the only seed that I could get to grow in a shady and acidic soil environment. For that reason, I highly recommend this seed. Also, I could see the grass starting to grow within just 2-3 days. I am very happy with this grass seed. I did mix this seed with the Fescue seeds by Jnanthan Green, which are a little bit cheaper at $70 per bag. They both are great.
DECEMBER 15, 2016: The first 3 pictures below show results a nonexpert can expect 26 days after planting Jonathan Greene Black Beauty Ultra Grass Seed, in chilly but mild weather in North Carolina. I started doing my own yardwork this year after professional landscapers overcharged for subpar lawn care. Although I cleaned up parts of the yard the landscapers missed, I gouged 4 holes in the ground with my weedeater in the process. For patching the holes, Jonathan Greene's brand of grass seed was the smallest bag (comes in 1 pound) with the highest ratings I could find at Amazon or Lowe's. The smallest bag (1 Cu. Ft.) of Miracle Gro garden soil was just enough to fill the craters.
I planted on November 19, 2016, while the temperature was in the 60s during the day and around the 40s at night. By December 15, we're in the 40s and 50s during the day and usually in the 30s at night. Despite intentions to follow the meticulous instructions of other Amazon customers, I...
