I love the look and feel of this grass. It feels so soft to your feet. The deep green coloring is what I like in a lawn. I highly recommend giving it a try.

My daughter and son in law bought a house with a terrible lawn. I told them in 1 year you will have the best lawn in the neighborhood. We overseeded with Blackbeautyy using a slit seeder. They now have the most beautiful thick green lawn I have ever seen. Puts my lawn to shame. I know what I need to do this fall GK-Massachusettsttes

Dear Neal - We are sorry to hear you were not satisfied with this product. Many homeowners lawns did struggle this summer due to the harsh temperatures and drought. We would be happy to address your lawn situation. Please feel free to email us at and we can discuss what may have went wrong. Thank you, Jonathan Green.

Wish i knew about this product before I wasted money on other grass seed. This grass seed is amazing and the grass it products originates dark green. I used some of this to fix some patches that I had and it was dramatically different than my established lawn from Scotts seed. Now I am trying to over seed this into my existing grass. I provided this to my neighbor and he started his lawn with this and it looks amazing.

Ive used every type of seed for years including Scotts but nothing matches Jonathan Greene. We lost a lot of our grass this summer ion the Northeast due to heat and little rain. First week of September I rented a dethatcher and followed by Aerating excessively. I proceeded to drop starter fertilizer and hit the lawn with a 25 bag of J Greene sun and shade to get things going. I then followed one week later by hitting it with Black Beauty Ultra(two 25 pd bags). Unfortuneately we have not had a lot of rain , but we are watering and getting great results---lawn is looking dark green and all the seed has not germinated. Highly recommend overseeding with Black beauty Ultra every season--u get a great fall lawn, but a spectacular spring lawn.

I aerated, thatched, put down love your lawn love your soil, magical, and 200 lbs of Black Beauty seed. My neighbors friends and family cannot believe how beautiful my lawn is as well as how alive my soil is. Best products on the market. Keep up the good work Jonathan Green and Thank You.

Reseeded a troubled lawn with this - recommended by the lawn expert at my local nursery. It was slow to establish (we seeded mid-Autumn, but didn't see true results until Spring) Got an email from the customer "my lawn looks like velvet." - Have learned the Ultra establishes more quickly. I will try all JG products from now on!
