Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

If you still have any seed left I would like a sample. I saw it on TV and was looking to getting it. I have a side yard that is very hard to grow grass and wanted to buy this seed, but I wasn't sure if it worked like them say. But I still want to see if it will work for me.

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

Seed samples mailing out today! No need to compensate me for my cost, but please return and let us know how your sample worked in your location.

Please check this map to see if your area is within the recommended planting zone:

https://www.cuttingedgegrass.com/map/

If your location is within the cool or transitional planting zone then the seeds should work well for you, particularly if you are in the cool zone. The transitional zone could work either way.

If you are just getting to this page, I still have samples left. Please check the above map to see if you are in the correct planting zone. If you are, then feel free to send me a private message (PM) and include the name and address to send the samples to.

;)

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

First time here. Am totally interested in this. Live in Chicago suburb. My yard Gets sun , shade and dog urine. The grass is too thin or disappearing in areas. Was sodded last year an looks like we don't do anything. My wife waters all the time. If the ground can not support the seed that is there, maybe this would take root and be thick.
What info would you need to get the samples that you are offering?

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

OK, so I am just over 2 weeks into the new lawn. For those of you complaining about the 800 number you called (the (800) 505-0465 number), FORGET ABOUT THEM! You will receive a TINY amount of seed after waiting 2 months for it and will deal with foreign people on the phone who do not care about your problems! They are just a reseller. Call the REAL company at (866) 920-5322 and they will tell you who in your area sells this stuff. For me, there was a store literally 10 minutes from my house at Haynes in Oxford CT and I was able to walk in and buy a 44 lb bag (they also have smaller bags) of the stuff.

Regardless of where you live, follow the planting instructions on their website. I am hoping that some of you who are savvy at planting grass can help me with this one... I have some random bald spots, and most likely it's my fault, but I need to dump the rest of the seed from my bag into my bare areas (mostly in the back yard) to ensure I have full coverage. I put phosphate and nitrogen (Scotts starter fertilizer) in my soil, and am hoping there is still some in there so the second go-around of planting will not require additional treatment. It may take a year to have my grass perfect and weed free, but right now I have a clean slate. You can see the progress thread here: https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/vi ... 32&t=55076

Below is my grass 2 weeks after planting. Could use some help on filling in the bare spots as I am largely inexperienced at planting grass.

You may want to consider planting that seed! It has an expiration date if you look on the package.

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

My buddy and I will be planting Cutting Edge Grass seed this weekend, 10/26, in Charlotte, NC. we are close enough to a supplier - Mikes Growers Outlet in Stanley, NC to purchase it directly from them vs having it shipped. We are nervous of the amount we will need to use as we have fairly damages lawns so we are in between overseeding and new seeding. We will definitely let you all know how it goes. Planting late in fall vs typicaly fescue overseed, but Mike's folks said to wait. Again, we will let all know how it goes. Definitely expensive!

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

I looked for the p message button-It only appeared after your post. I could not find it anywhere else-When i clicked the p message icon I saw nothing happened- Please,I want a sample of Cutting Edge Grass Seed sent to me. I want to try the seed in an area that was once a flower garden that is now bare. We had a large tree cut down. My front yard consists of Bermuda and Zoysia- In the summer time it is very hot and humid here- We do have prolonged periods of no rain- almost a drought. Thanks and Please let me know if you can send me a sample-

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

Reply to websitemanager: I am wanting to try this cutting edge grass seed, but at $20.00 a bag it's kind of expensive for a trial run. I was wondering if you would consider sending me a small sample of it to try? I would be glad to let you know my results. I live in the North Texas area & I saw on your map where that isn't the ideal place to grow this particular seed, but I have nearly all the problems that they state it works on. Pets, high traffic, urine stains, bald areas, etc.... I would really appreciate any help that you would be willing to give. Like I said I would post my results post planting weekly for 2 months? Please send me an email to let me know if this would be acceptable to you. Thank you, T. Connell :)

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

@animalnurse - it would really help if you private message webmaster (which you can do with the P. Message button on his post above). Give him your mailing address and ask if he has any of the seed left and if it is still before its expiration date.

@everyone else. If you planted this seed last fall, can you give us any results yet?

I am having the same problem. There is no private message button. I would also like a sample and also live in North Texas.

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

Under each poster there are two buttons: one with a little green guy for the profile of the poster and one with a little yellow/orange guy that says " P msg". That is the private message button to use to send someone a private message.

So under the Web Master post you would use the little yellow/orange guy button to private message the webmaster about things.

Good luck!

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

OK I have an update on my lawn. As you may know I planted this seed on a bare lawn last fall. The results are in.

The claim of "STOP constant mowing" is NOT true. It looks good but the maintenance is just as high as it was before I planted this stuff.

Check out this thread for a full review: https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/vi ... 32&t=55076

It's been nearly a year since the grass has come up.

Re: Cutting Edge Grass Seed - Too Good to be True?

I lived in Tucson when Cutting Edge Grass Seed was launched. I had several phone conversations with the president of Cutting Edge about overseeding our entire complex of 13 acres. He sent me 10 'x 10' samples of the seed for my zone (C4) and we tried it in various areas in the complex. It worked brilliantly. I just sold my home there and left a beautiful cutting edge grass lawn of 2 1/2 years behind for the new owner. I am in Montana now and plan to overseed with C3 Cool Season Seed on my front and back lawns this late spring when the ground is at least 62 degrees. It germinates quickly and once the roots are deep enough, needs almost no water or mowing. I would recommend it to everyone!

Another "member" who joined to make this one post... seems legit :roll:
Like I said before... I planted and shared my results. The grass really does look great but expect to mow your lawn twice a week.
