Tore out old sod lawn, and did new seeded lawn with this Pacific NW blend. It germinated quickly ( majority of it ) and has been thickening up nicely over last few weeks. This was my 4th mow today, at 6 weeks since seeding. I put some ammonium sulfate on it at about 4 weeks, and it has REALLY taken off/ GREENED UP since then!! Super GREEN!
In early April we thatched the lawn, raked all the moss and dead grass, and prepped the soil for the seeds. We spread the grass seed and gently watered the lawn. For the next few weeks we had mostly overcast days and occasionally sunny days with temps in the mid 60s. The soil moisture was monitored very carefully. After two weeks there wasn't a single blade of new grass to be seen. In early May we raked the seeded areas again, applied more seed, and added a thin layer of potting soil to help the seeds. Again, mild temps and carefully monitored moisture. And again, after three weeks--not a single blade of new grass. I even tried growing some grass seed in a small flower pot in potting soil. Once more...NOT a single blade of grass. I now have a backyard with lots of bare spots and some weeds growing where new grass should be growing. I give up. This product was a colossal disappointment.

I tilled and pulled a drag around my 1200 sq foot space a few times. Used a broadcast spreader to put roughly double the recommended seed down. I put 1/2" of peat moss on top of the seed and watered twice a day (morning and afternoon) and in 5 days saw the tops start to show. In 8 days grass was showing in all space. Two and a half weeks after full germination I was mowing grass on a beautiful lush deep green lawn. This seed worked great.
I have been trying for a year to get grass to fill in patchy yard. This time, I thatched, seeded and then put 1/4 inch of top soil then watered just enough for it to stay moist. Finally have the grass seedlings! I’m excited and I wish I would’ve adhered to the instructions better last year. They started to show at about the 1 week time frame, partly because nights have been really cool. I’m excited to possible have a green yard this year!
I planted this seed 3-4 weeks ago, put two bags on, after we detached lawn and prepped just as the bag said to do. Some of the seed has grown but most of it did not. I'm so disappointed, I thought for sure this is what I needed to have a nice lawn, instead it was just huge waste of money!!

We apologize for your distress regarding Turf Builder Pacific Northwest Mix. Soil temperatures must be at least 55 degrees for the seed to germinate. In order to achieve this, the temperatures should be consistently between 60 and 80 degrees. We do offer a product guarantee.

I used this seed to fill in bare spots in the lawn. It was a bit slow to take off, but once it got going, it did the trick. Easy to use; worked best in sunny areas. Nice rich color; looked healthier than established turf. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I used this during the spring with my weed and feed in the same spreader and it has been doing very well. The new grass sprouts quickly and is strong. I’m buying a couple more bags for next year for the bare spots. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Used this product this spring for a small lawn expecting to get lush greener thick lawn and followed as directed. Results are not that great and lot of areas doesn't have seeds germinate. Even applied new lawn food but it didn't help.

We are sorry to hear that your Turf Builder Pacific Northwest Mix did not germinate as expected. Both excessive moisture and lack of moisture can inhibit seed germination. We recommend only one inch of water per week unless temperatures are over 85 degrees. This is not what we expect from this product, and we would be interested in discussing this further so that we can learn more about this issue and extend our product guarantee.
