If areas of your lawn don’t see much sunlight, you may have had some difficulty growing thick, green grass. Requiring only 2-6 hours of sunlight, Pennington Smart Seed Dense Shade offers the perfect mix of Tall Fescue and Fine Fescue to thrive in shady conditions.
This grass seed is disease and traffic-resistant, resulting in a strong and durable lawn. Plant it in early spring or early fall and see results in 8 to 16 days. A 3-pound bag covers up to 750 square feet for overseeding an existing lawn and 250 square feet for starting a new lawn from scratch.
What makes Smart Seed smart? It’s our industry-leading innovation. Pennington's NexGen Turf Research is the largest private grass seed research facility in the United States.
