This review is from the perspective of someone who has never planted grass seed before. That said, I do have 20+ years of experience in gardening.
-First, the price I paid was well worth the quality of the grass the seed has produced. Very fine, and a bright green color.
-Second, the seed was very easy to plant as it is spelled out on the bag. I did however put more seed down than the bag suggest, only because I was unsure if it would be enough (it was plenty).
-Third, I am fortunate enough to get a consistent 80 degrees+ temperature this time of year; so the seed germinated in about 4 days after planting. I watered twice a day for the first 2 weeks, and then backed off on the water to a couple times a week.
-Lastly, I have small yard with a 4 1/2 foot fence surrounding it on 3 sides, and a medium-large Banyan tree that hangs over a good portion of the yard. The lawn sees a fair amount of shade throughout the day, and still sprouted just fine.
I am very satisfied with the results this product gave me, and would recommend this to anyone looking for a good Southern Turf Grass!
