I purchased this seed in the Summer of 2011 for my Atlanta lawn, however, our area seems to constantly be in droughts during summer hot and humid days so I decided to wait until mid to late Fall to sew the seed over my existing areas that has lots of shade. I also mixed the seed with my Summer Bermuda which I was reluctant but with the drought and dead patches around the home...had to get something growing. I thought that the seed had gone bad since waiting so long to plant but we started seeing new beautiful green grass growing in the shady less dense areas of our yard. This seems to be a cool weather grass seed like many fescue seeds. I am curious to see what will happen in the Summer of 2013 or if it will keep growing and stay green. I will update this posting later in 2013. The reason I am giving 5 stars is because it did grow where I planted in less dense area of back and side yard where sunshine is limited. I hope the grass continues to creep (like warm season grasses...
My backyard was a 100% overgrown with ivy and kudzoo. Once we took a year to get that cleared we were left with no grass at all. So, I decided to try this brand since the yard is mostly shade. The grass began to go to about 1 inch height in about 6 days! I am now at day 12 and I have amazing results, even under the trampoline which receives zero sunlight. I plan on purchasing another bag to apply another layer to help thicken it up.
I had pretty good luck with this seed. There was a high germination rate and the seed does do well in the shade. I used this last year and compared to a similar product that I tried this year, I had much better germination rate and coverage. I live in Southern California.
