Additional Information

Brand Grow Zones Grass Type Drought Tolerance Traffic/Wear Tolerance Coverage Area (sq. ft.) Lesco 3-7 Mixed Good High 5000-10000


Mowing: Mow at 1.5 - 2.5 inches. If used to overseed warm-season grasses, gradually reduce the height of the ryegrass in the spring by mowing it more closely and more often to encourage growth of warm-season grasses as they come out of dormancy.

Fertilizing: Fertilize using 4 lbs. nitrogen/1000 sq. ft. per year during the period of active growth (February - June; October - December).  For best results, use Lesco's Starter Fertilizer 18-24-12

Seeding Rate: Seed at 6 - 9 lbs./1000 sq. ft. Ryegrass seed germinates quickly: 3 - 5 days in moderate temperatures. A rapid turf cover is established within 4 - 8 weeks. Irrigate frequently. Water to a depth of 6 - 12 inches. If used to overseed warm-season grasses, water deeply and less often in the spring to encourage the growth of warm-season grasses coming out of dormancy.

If used in overseeding, first reduce the height of the bermuda grass down to a minimum of .5 inches.  Remove any excess clipping to provide good seed to soil contact for germination.

Support/Transit Excellent, but have to wait on review for Seeding

Very slow in getting seed to grow - put out 3 weeks ago and spotty coverage (might be due to my soil conditions). Unfortunately, tried to seed bare spots yesterday and then had a bad rain storm and most washed away! Support/Transit I had from Planting Tree was excellent. Hopeful that grass will reach excellent too!

Finally, grass!

Wonderful! It germinated quickly and is a lush green. I’m in the process of overseeding now. Areas of my property that I’ve tried for years to grow grass on are finally green. I will probably be buying more until my entire two acre lake property is covered in beautiful lawn!
