  • 50% to 75% existing cover – 4 to 7 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft.

Establishment & Maintenance

Adequate seedbed preparation is paramount to new turfgrass establishment, as well as, overseeding existing sites.  Adjust soil pH (if necessary) and then apply a “starter” fertilizer prior to seeding.

Seed at the suggested rate.  GCI turf-type fescue blend germinates when soil temperatures are between 60 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit.  For best results, ensure good seed to soil contact during the seeding process.  It is necessary to provide light and frequent irrigation for optimum germination.  Under sufficient soil temperature and soil moisture, germination should be complete in three to four weeks.  New seedlings require eight to twelve months to depict mature growth characteristics.

Maintain a sharp mower blade to prevent tearing of young, tender leaves.  Under normal situations, a cutting height between 2.5″ and 4.0″ is recommended.

GCI turf-type fescue blend responds well to three to four pounds of actual nitrogen per thousand square feet, on an annual basis.

    This is the holy grail of grass seed. I planted this seed about 2 weeks ago. It is coming in like crazy. I do think my soil is absolute crap so if it holds up I’ll be shocked. Hands down if I ever seed or I have friends that are planning of seeding, this is a must use. I am located in Pittsburgh PA so this grass should do pretty well. I still can’t get over the 6 day germination rate for this stuff!

    I WILL be buying this again.

    So far so good! At 4.5 days since seeding/overseeding I have begun to notice new grass just starting to show. I will update in a few days if possible.

    This is day 6 of overseed in a fairly lush, thick yard of 15,000 sq ft with a few thin spots near my shed and north side of house that is shaded mostly. Went out this afternoon and noticed seeds are germinating in thin areas. I could not believe it. I have 8 zones with 6 heads per zone and water twice daily for 20 minutes per zone. Temps have been in the mid to upper 80’s. This is by far the fastest I have had any grass seed germinate after overseeding. I am very impressed and am ordering more now so I can be ready for spring overseed.

    Pete, this blend is AWESOME!! I did a complete renovation almost three and half weeks ago and within 3 days, I saw germination. Now my lawn is full,lush, and dark green. I’m really impressed and will be ordering again for overseeding.

    Awesome grass seed Pete !! I was just like Pete tired of buying crappy seed . I ran across his YouTube videos a few months ago and seen his product and results, so I decided to try it out on a few of our propertys and WOW at the fast germination. It’s only been 9 days and the propertys are greening up quickly. Next season we plan on buying this seed for all our property’s.
    Thanks Pete

    I would have to agree with all the others this seed came up in less than a week despite not being able to water regularly. Had the 5300 sq ft front yard aerated and put down 7.5 lbs of seed per 1k sq ft and it is beginning to fill in nicely. Great product.

    Unreal. Never thought I’d care so much about grass until I saw this stuff germinate in my yard (total rookie… Never even knew what germinate even meant until learning from this man’s videos). Tried buying other seed from big box stores in the spring with decent results but nothing like this. My advice… Spend a little extra and get this you won’t regret it. Awesome seed. Awesome education. Will buy again next fall for rest of my yard.

    I overseeded my lawn along with several bare spots. The seed started coming up 7 days after I put it down. Now it is coming in like crazy. Very pleased with the results so far.

    After wasting so much time and money on local seed I decided to give this a try. It is absolutely beautiful and healthy grass and has made a tremendous difference in my lawn as well as our clients. I will never give big box another penny for seed. Thanks Pete for making it available.

    I renovated my entire front and back yard which is 3,600 sq. ft. with this seed and WOW! The seed quality is outstanding with how quickly it germinated and now I have a beautiful dark green lush lawn that I have received countless compliments about. Thank you Pete for having this available to the DIY homeowner!

    If you can sow it, you can grow it! Quite litterally.

    I renovated my yard and decided to buy an extra bag to “test” with and see how far I could push my luck. It’s growing in places that have NEVER been able to grow grass. 100% shade areas, moss covered areas, untilled concrete NC red clay Pete talks about, the gravel driveway after some of it washed. Germination in six days and 3” of growth in three weeks from seed date.
