    10 days that is...I'm planning on seeding a blend of 60%KBG mix and 40%creeping red fescue mix but was wondering if there was a KBG that germinated close to as fast as the red fescue.

    Most grass seed will germinate within 10 days or so. AR in 4-5 days in the right environment. Straight KBG has still emerged after 2 weeks , but after 3 go ahead and overseed the light areas again..

    Try pregerminating your KBG then you won't need to seek out costly unproven cultivars.
