obviously i do NOT expect full coverage after planting, however, i will continue to over seed a couple times a year until it fills in enough that im happy with the results.

maynard - heres the grass seed ive been planting.

The Scotts Turf Builder Midwest Mix contains:
10% Blue Bonnet Kentucky Bluegrass
10% Kenblue Kentucky Bluegrass
25% Majesty Perennial Ryegrass
20% Ascend Perennial Ryegrass
15% Trapeze Creeping Red Fescue
20% Boreal Creeping Red Fescue
Thank you for posting. Varietally, that looks like a good blend to me. The negative is the low quality of the KBGs, which are obsolete, disease susceptible cultivars. Kenblue is a standard entry in the NTEP bluegrass trials, where it consistently finishes at the bottom for turfgrass quality. I'm surprised that a name-brand company like Scott's would use them, as kenblue and blue bonnet are generic grade. The PRGs are not top tier, but they are fine.
