    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grass Sprouted in 7 Days! Wife and I watched videos on installing a new lawn and planting grass seed. Installed ours May 21. I had good quality dirt. Used a Rototiller to break it up and a homemade drag to smooth it all out. We removed as many rocks as possible. Used a seed spreader mounted behind the lawn mower and put down straw. Was watering once a day in the evening for six days and had lots of sunshine. Wife was worried it was getting too dry throughout the day and thought we may have ruined the seed, The morning of the 7th day we watered and when I went out in the evening to water, I was pleasantly surprised grass began to sprout. A lot of people said two weeks so that was what I was suspecting. Very happy with the outcome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pay a little extra. It's worth it Love this seed. As long as you follow basic planting guides this stuff never disappoints. Be sure to water the heck out of it for the first 2-3 weeks.

    I'm in Flagstaff AZ and want to know when to plant this seed. I will not be watering it as I plan on having the Monsoon daily rains in July-Sept do it. I will be seeding 3 acres. should I put it down now or wait until next years rainy season?

    Asked by: Jack Hatchback
    K-31 Tall fescue is a cool season perennial. It is summer dormant from July -Sept. While the summer monsoons might be effective in germinating the seed, depending on intensity and frequency, the K-31 will require watering on a regular basis through the fall and spring to maintain a stand. It will be able to persist through the winter snow. Based on the climate in Flagstaff, K-31 is not a good choice for an unwatered turf..

    Is it ok if dogs eat it?  I noticed it is not good for horses. Will it grow at 7800 ft

    Asked by: BoxerMom53
    If you mean the grass a little will not hurt dogs, but it is not good for horses. It will grow at 7800 feet.

    Is this a good choice for seeding a lot mainly used for my kids to ride atv's on? If so how many pounds per acre for new seeding, it will be dragged in over soybean stubble?? Need to plant 7 acres

    Asked by: KTB123
    K31 tall fescue will work in the situation above for light ATV usage. It will not persist in areas of heavy use, so trails will form under repeated use. Kentucky Bluegrass would hold up longer, but also will show trails where there is heavy, repeated use. The manufacturer suggest a planting rate of 100 lbs/acre. This is a heavier rate than for a pasture, but lighter than a typical turf rate.
