$23 for 1 pound... What a joke. That stuff is a total ripoff.

Giggle. See Dr. Rank Rossi (of Cornell), and his comments for CNN. On their website under press comments.
The grass is not a new variety, but rather a mixture of 7 old varieties. Fescue, rye and blue.
It probably won't need to be mowed much--if the weather gets dry--I think it will be brown like other grass mixtures.

I looked at the testimonials. One from Rhode Island, but two from the south--Georgia and Florida--Bermuda country. Hard to understand.
