PRODUCT REVIEW

The Jonathan Green Fall Magic Grass Seed Mix is a relative newcomer to the brand’s product lawn. According to the manufacturer’s website, this mixture consists of:

  • 25% Dakota Tall Fescue
  • 25% Taos Tall Fescue
  • 20% Frontier Perennial Ryegrass
  • 10% Madison Kentucky Bluegrass
  • 10% Eugene Creeping Red Fescue
  • 10% Hood Chewings Fescue
  • 2% Inert Matter

The Jonathan Green Fall Magic Grass Seed Mix is an ideal choice if you want to start a new small to medium sized lawn or if you are looking to cover brown, bare patches on your existing lawn. Each seed included in this mixture was selected for its ability to repair damage to lawns caused by hot summer weather or ravaged by insects. All of the seed contained in this mixture has been chemically treated to be more resistant to insect damage and disease; however, it is still pet-friendly.

Per the manufacturer’s instructions, the Fall Magic Seed Mix will perform best when it is seeded during the late summer or early fall. The creeping red fescue, bluegrass, and ryegrass seeds included will grow well in a variety of different soil conditions. To obtain the quickest germination rates, and for the best results, the seed should ideally be planted in soil that has a pH level of 6.5 to 6.8. Seeds can be planted in full sun or light shade. The seeds are drought resistant, and once matured, they can preserve moisture as needed; however, the manufacturer’s watering instructions should be carefully followed.

A 3-pound bag of Jonathan Green Fall Magic Grass Seed Mix will cover roughly 1,500 square feet of new lawn, but the seed is also available in 7 pound and 25-pound bag options if more seed is required. The affordable price of this grass seed has won praise from buyers.
