Pennington Smart Patch Dense Shade Mix is a specially prepared mulch, grass seed, and fertilizer mixture that helps mend bare spots and stop diseases. Its blend of organic particles and microbials enhances overall grass health. It can neutralize soils, making grass grow thick and lush. Its water-soluble tackifier prevents rain from washing away seeds on hills and slopes. Its mulch turns into a lighter color, which indicates it's time to water again. It is suitable for lawns that receive sun in some areas and moderate shade in others.
