Pennington Perennial Rye Grass Blend grows well in full sun or light shade in northern areas and is used to establish permanent northern lawns. If planted in the south, perennial
ryegrass performs as an annual as it will completely die in the summer months. Pennington perennial ryegrass allows a smooth transition when used as a seasonal overseeding of southern lawns, golf
courses, and athletic fields of bermuda grass. The grass seeds in this rye grass blend are Penkoted to promote healthy plants by protecting the seeds from fungus while germinating which
improves the ability to grow a healthy plant and thus a thick, lush turf.

Caring For Perennial Ryegrass Seed Blend
Recommended Mowing height is 3".
Fertilize in fall and early spring with a balanced fertilizer.
Apply pre-emerge crabgrass preventer in early spring. Weed and
feed in mid spring. Use lime if pH is low and water twice
weekly when established.
Seeding New Lawns or Other Areas
Prepare the soil by tilling to a depth of
4-8 inches. Conduct a soil analysis test and make sure the pH
and proper nutrients are available. If you cannot obtain a
soil test, apply lime and a complete lawn fertilizer at package
recommended rates. Spread and work lime and fertilizer evenly into
the soil. Rake smooth the soil to to provide a good seed bed
for germination to occur. Rake, drag, or otherwise work the
seed into the soil to a depth of 1/4" to 1/2".
Keep the area well watered (moist soil) until the seed germinate and
the seedlings have grown large enough to establish a lawn, then
water normally as required.
Overseeding Existing Areas With Perennial Ryegrass Seed Blend
Before overseeding, it is important to
prepare the soil. Conduct a soil test to see if your pH and
other soil nutrients are adequate. Fertilize and lime if
needed. Mow or clip the existing grass as closely as
possible. Remove the clipping and rake, harrow lightly or
aerate the soil of your existing lawn. This will allow the seed to
make soil contact when sown. Sow the seed and gently rake
to provide soil cover over the seed. Keep the lawn soil
moist until the seeds have germinated. Then water as needed.
a beautiful tomorrow!®
