Last summer we had a major remodel done on the house that required changing the grade of part of the lot. I placed sod around the patio to keep from tracking dirt then seeded in December hoping for a good start on the lawn in the spring.
The sod is supposed to be Kentucky Bluegrass so I seeded with Kentucky Bluegrass seed I bought at Menards. With the mild winter the newly seeded lawn was up in February.
The sod is a deep green but the seeded lawn is a bright green and hasn't fully filled out yet. I'm hoping they'll match better after the seeded area fills out.
But here is the crazy thing. My soil is very sandy and it's been dry so the old lawn and sod is growing slowly. In fact, parts of the old lawn are going dormant. That newly seeded stuff is growing like weeds, I just mowed Monday and tonight (Thursday) I cut 2-3" off it!
I wish I'd kept track of just what seed I bought. If it turns out to be as drought tolerant as it seems I'm going to want it for the whole lawn.
