Additional Information

Brand Lesco
Grass Type Mixed
Drought Tolerance Good
Traffic/Wear Tolerance Level High
Grows in Zones 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10


Mowing: Mow at 1.5 - 2.5 inches. If used to overseed warm-season grasses, gradually reduce the height of the ryegrass in the spring by mowing it more closely and more often to encourage growth of warm-season grasses as they come out of dormancy.

Fertilizing: Fertilize using 4 lbs. nitrogen/1000 sq. ft. per year during the period of active growth (February - June; October - December).  For best results, use Lesco's Starter Fertilizer 18-24-12

Seeding Rate: Seed at 6 - 9 lbs./1000 sq. ft. Ryegrass seed germinates quickly: 3 - 5 days in moderate temperatures. A rapid turf cover is established within 4 - 8 weeks. Irrigate frequently. Water to a depth of 6 - 12 inches. If used to overseed warm-season grasses, water deeply and less often in the spring to encourage the growth of warm-season grasses coming out of dormancy.

If used in overseeding, first reduce the height of the bermuda grass down to a minimum of .5 inches.  Remove any excess clipping to provice good seed to soil contact for germination.

Will buy again
Purchased fall 2016 for a cool season lawn. I reapplied every 2-3 weeks for about 6 weeks for even coverage. Makes a nice green lawn for winter. I will do this again this fall.

Lesco Double Eagle Ryegrass Seed - 50 lb bag
The Planting Tree shipped the product the same day, and it arrived as scheduled/ The product is a mixture of uncoated ryegrass seeds - not coated seeds as found in many stores. I am happy to write that the seed sprouted within a week, and now I am waiting for the transformation of my lawn.

Overseeding Lesco Perennial Ryegrass
Excellent grass seed for fall reseeding in Charlotte , NC area. I just put down 40 pounds per 1000 of pelletized lime , fertilized with 18-24-12 and letting the rain soak it all in.. I will post pictures when yard is fully established. I have used Lesco seed before and it germinates quickly when watered and temps are above 60 degrees.

I planted a new yard three weeks ago. The grass is coming in really well but it is not full. When should I mow and put down some more seed?
Waffle on Jun 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I spread more seed in 2-3 week intervals for good even coverage. I let the new grass get about 4 inches tall before I mowed it.
Live in Ocean City Md , hot summers , I have lots of trees in area I want to seed , will the ryegrass hold up ?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You would be better off with the tall fescue select or the sun and shade. The sun and shade has a blue brass blend in it also. The select is only tall fescue.
How long will the grass seed last in the bag?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Once you open the bag it is ideal to use it. We don't recommend trying to store an open bag. You may be able to stretch it if you store in a cool, dry area and seal it well.
