Rated 5 out of 5 by from consistent results - works very well Did entire backyard (1200 sq feet) in the fall. Followed the prep directions and added some topsoil to the backyard, used a scotts hand Whirlybird spreader to get consistent coverage, also used the 'seeding success' pellets , watered as specified and did about 1/3 section of yard at a time to see how it went. Worked fabulous - about 90 percent success. Note that the variety of grass is not like Kentucky blue - is is finer and so far looks like it will not be a tall growing mix but it has a nice shade of deeper green and it covers well. Only thing I would say is that if you use the pellets (which expand when watered) be careful to spread them at the recommended 25% and avoid putting down too much in any spot - I found that the areas that did not take were where I had too many pellets and I think it kind of smothered the seeds and didn't allow them to germinate.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Backyard Under Tree This is the second time I have use the Dense Shade Seed. The first time it work out well in the Spring and Summer, but heavy rains in Northern Virginia and floods killed a great deal of the grass under the tree. This Fall, I did not get the same results. The Dense Shade seed did not work but about 60% of the area. I will happier when I can talk to your experts directly, about seed, top soil and fertilizers. Respectfully

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green backyard We recently moved into a house where the yard had not been a priority. The back yard is under a canopy of trees and only gets filtered sunlight. It was dirt, onions, and a few weeds. We did a little raking to loosen the dirt and remove the weeds, put a thick layer of this dense shade grass seed down, and watched our yard transform into a lush, green, grassy yard. Absolutely wonderful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Seed Over the years I have purchase a number of other brand shade grass seeds but none have performed as well as Greenview Dense Shade. Where othere have died Greenview is still doing well. Would highly recommend
