This is high quality tall fescue. It does not creep like St Augustine. If you are converting from another type of grass (called "overseeding") then a 20# bag would cover a standard 1/4 acre homesite. I don't know about the seed coverage of a new lawn...but due to the work involved I would recommend sod. Instant lawn!

I'm originally from Tidewater Virginia and grew up with a Kentucky 31 lawn (which is a mixture of fescue and bluegrass) so I can tell you with great assuredness that you will love this product. I'm currently converting my Bermudagrass lawn to fescue here in Texas, and will post the results. It's looking great so far!

This is tall fescue (not creeping). They say that it covers approximately 5000 sq ft. They didn't specify, but this is probably for overseeding an existing lawn. It would take about twice that amount for a new lawn.

My dad was a farmer so I should know this! Yes most all fescue verities "CREEP" they spread by small shoots growing out of the base of the plant. They can do this rather quickly and appear to spread pretty fast. Since growing conditions temps, and rainfall and sprinklers all affect the rate of growth there is no hard and fast rule, but it's not as fast as say Bermuda that has runners and spreads FAST! Additionally there are different varieties for full sun and mostly shade so if you have a few trees in your pasture or yard you can get a uniform look to your space.

Question

The 20lb bag of Smart Seed states it covers 5000 sq ft. How many sq ft will the 20 lb bag cover if overseeding? Is it a lower rate for overseeding?

Hi Theresa,

I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.

The coverage of this bag of seed is "Up to 5000 Square Feet".

This figure is achievable when overseeding. When applying to bare soil, coverage is about half of that area.

Thank you for asking,

-Travis

Hello,
The Pennington Smart Seed Tall Fescue will cover 5,000 sq. ft. when applied as an overseeding of thin areas (4lbs. for every 1,000 sq. ft.). If you have bare spots then it will cover up to 2,500 sq. ft. because you will apply 8lbs. for every 1,000 sq. ft.
Thank you

will this survive the 100+ degree north texas summer? I have very little shade in my yard around the house, so wondering if this will survive the summer or will i have to overseed this with bermuda for spring/summer and back to fescue during fall?
