Fast grow Review by Ronnie

I have purchased several bags of this seed to date, and so far so good, It tends to grow quickly little to no problems, the only problems I have ever had required me to water more than usual for the first few days but other than that Good stuff!!

grass seed Review by James Hunt

This seed is not worth the money, you do get a 50 pound bag for the price , but it does not grow in central Illinois [Springfield ]. Maybe it was just the bag I bought but it will not germinate .

Best Grass Seed I Have ever Bought Review by Todd Kramer

I planted this seed 10 days ago . It germinated in about 7 - 10 days.

I am very pleased with KY 31. I would definitely purchase again.

Super Fast germination and looks great! Review by Weekend grass warrior

Could not beat the price and the awesome quality of this seed.
You probably will have plenty left over with this bag but pound for pound in comparison of other stores this is the best deal.

The germination is fast so less seed for birds and other animals to lunch up on.

The seed looks well sifted or sorted so less foreign weeds to worry about.

If needed I would buy again if needed.

Very Good Seed For North Alabama Review by Larry Clem

could not find in any local store in athens, alabama. a bit unusual but that was the case. had to buy on line at a good price but, of course, the shipping made it cost more. i wanted this brand and this seed because i know it does well where i live.

Good Stuff Review by Joe

I put this down last fall and it grew quickly and seemed to have a good germination rate. It appeared to die over winter and looked pretty sad compared to the rest of my yard but it recently came back to life this spring and looks great. Time will tell how tough it is.

Great Value Review by Mike

I over seeded at about 8 pounds per 1,000 sq ft which seems like a lot but it has worked well and seems to be doing great. I'll have to wait and see what it looks like next summer to see if it holds up but so far I'm very pleased.

grows fast and thick, the softest grass ever Review by scarp

If only I could rip up my lawn and plant this I would have the best lawn ever. This is the fastest thickest and softest grass I have ever come by.
