Pennington Smart Blend

Take the smart route to a lush, beautiful lawn with Pennington Smart Blend. This premium, pre-mixed seeding mixture combines cool-season, water-conserving Smart Seed grasses with stabilized-nitrogen fertilizer to help your lawn grow quicker, thicker and greener. Everything you need for the growing season is provided in this region-specific mix. You can rest easy knowing the Smart Blend at your local retailer contains grass varieties that will thrive with full sun to medium shade where you live.

Bare Spots / New Grass: Remove debris, then rake the soil to loosen and smooth the top layer.
Overseeding: Same instructions as above but start by mowing existing grass as short as possible.

Spread the seed evenly using a drop, rotary or hand-held spreader according to the spreader settings. Rake gently to work your seed & fertilizer into the soil.

The most important step! Keep the soil moist! Water daily (twice a day if you have to) until grass sprouts and reaches about 3: tall. After establishment, Smart Seed premium grade grass seed will require up to 30% less water year after year vs. ordinary seed.

Additional Care Tips
Once your grass is 1/3 taller than the recommended mowing height you may begin mowing it. Avoid removing more than 1/3 of the total grass blade length at any single mowing to keep your grass thick. Increase your mowing height in summer months to reduce grass stress.
