Anything with a high % of Kentucky Bluegrass is a good sign for our "climate". I never tried this brand, but 25 KG bag delivered for $89.99 is a heck of a deal. Thanks OP.

Those with smaller lawns, you can always split the package and overseed in spring/fall and use for bare spots.

"To win the War on Weeds, you must overseed" quoted by me lol

I don't recall the last time I posted, but this is a super deal in my opinion (assuming content % are accurate)

From my understanding annual ryegrass isn’t good. It dies come winter.

Yep.

Looks like 62.5% of this bag is actual seed.

But what's the exact percentage for each seed? But for kbg...it's 30% of the 32.5% of the coated seed which is...

My head hurts lol.

25kg x 30% = 7.5kg is Rye
25kg x 32.5% = 8.125kg is the coating
25kg x 32.5% = 8.125 kg is KBG / Creeping Red Fescue / Perennial Ryegrass

Of the 8.125kg coated seed:
8.125kg x 30% = 2.43kg is KBG
8.125kg x 40% = 3.25kg is Creeping Red Fescue
8.125kg x 30% = 2.43kg is Perennial Ryegrass

25kg x 5% = 1.25kg Calcium Sulfate (soil conditioner)

My personal take... if you are home the next month due to COVID social distancing anyway, go with a better value non-coated seed mix and water 2-3 times a day.

Only 32.5% of the content is actual useful grass then.
