With fertilization and water, 5 Star will provide healthy lawns. No care to minimal care is needed. It also performs well in shady areas, as long as it receives two to four hours of sunlight.
I purchased 5 Star after being told by a local garden center it would grow better than any sod type grass in my lawn due to my lot being very shaded. I initially planted the seed in the fall and it came up pretty well but followed up with heavy oveerseeding this past March and April. The lawn is now beatiful and the envy of the neighborhood. Seed is cheap to attain a great lawn so buy enough to seed sufficiently and overseed as needed. I also applied a starter type fertilizer.
Love this grass! Planted for the first time October 2016 in my more shady areas. I have horrible sandy dirt and nothing has worked. This grass came up in eight days ..... beautiful green! I was worried that it wouldn't make it through the winter even though Texas winters aren't horrible. It lightened in color but during February it started greening up - a deep green/blue color that is gorgeous - and it's growing again. I over-seeded last week (March 1) and planted a new section. It's all up, and the established section is starting to run. LOVE this product!! Going to order more. I have an acre that I am going to plant. Neighbors have said how pretty it is. I ordered and had the product within 5 days....love this company! Will continue using them....very pleased! :)
I tried everything from sod to more expensive grass seeds. This stuff is amazing. Grew in 5-7 days in the heat of Oklahoma. Hopefully it won't die off in the winter since I planted it during the summer (not optimal time). DoMyOwn has great prices and awesome customer service.
The grass is in the process of growing. The great thing about this seed and Do My Own Pest Control is the price and the quick service. Fantastic service! Quick time that I received it and the price was the best I found. My local guy said two weeks and the price was $40.00 higher. Keep up the good work!
Would I have to apply an anti-fungal agent with the 5 Star Fescue seed or is it treated already with an anti-fungal product?
I have heard that there are types of fescue seed that are prone to fungus.
