Excellent Rust Resistance!
Dec 21, 2017  |  By Gerald
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon
I have been looking for grass seed to improve my lawn overall. I have experimented with numerous blends and pure strains of elite Kentucky bluegrass and creeping fescue. Except for the creeping fescue, nearly all my plots of seed developed the fungal disease rust. I purchased a small quantity of Northern Turf Alive to plant in one of my test plots next to the existing lawn and adjacent to test plots of elite Kentucky bluegrass. The Northern Turf Alive sprouted well and grew into a very dark green turf. The existing lawn, along with other test plots, was hit hard with rust this fall, but the Northern Turf Alive test plot appeared unaffected. I would highly recommend this blend to anyone wishing for a very dark green lawn that will remain free of rust.

The lack of reviews on this seed made me very skeptical but nonetheless I took a chance on this seed because I was intrigued by the blend. I am happy to report it grew a beautiful, healthy lawn. I would recommend over-seeding for the best results. I will use it again without hesitation.
