Lesco site one grass seed
« on: Thu July 13, 2017, 09:14:59 PM »
Looking for opinions on this company's grass seed. I was called today by a rep for the company and let them quote me supplies . They didn't do to well with mulch pricing but said they could work on that but they really came in low on the grass seed.
The quote for the metro mix was almost half what I'm paying now. The seed tags looks fine from what I could tell, but I googled the varietys and didn't find much information . I don't really ever come across a customer that's willing to be a test pilot .. wondering if anyone uses this seed or has and can provide a review. I'm located in the northeast ... thanks chris

That seems like a pretty similar or nearly identical mix to what we have been using for years.  We have always had good results and it has produced a beautiful lawn. 

Here is a photo of what a mix like that should look like when it comes in.  This was actually a lawn repair after they put French drains in at my daughters house.  This is at 10 days but she had a nice lawn in less than 5 days.  There is a video of this job being shot and some follow up photos on our Facebook page.  Here is a link if anyone wants to see either an HM-400-TE loading and spraying or what a nearly identical seed mix would look like in a series of follow up photos.    https://www.facebook.com/Turbo-Turf-263005730481669/

Ray that lawn looks really nice! I really enjoyed scrolling through your facebook page!!
I use a mix similar for our standard mix but not those varieties, thats what kind of worries me about this seed ..
I only recognize the shamrock bluegrass which I think has been around a long time . Hopefully others can chime in. I'm Looking forward to taking the IHAP seed seminar next time it comes around I missed it last year.

Thank you Elsworth.  My son-in-law did the seeding and it was his first time ever running a hydro seeder.  I was very pleased with the way the job turned out.  My daughter (his wife) has hydro seeded a number of times but let him do this one.  One of the photos I have somewhere that I think is funny is her seeding the one acre lawn on the new house she and her first husband had just built.  She was there seeding away in the photo as he sits on the front porch, feet up, drinking an iced tea. 

Later next week I am going to start redoing my own lawn.  We bought a house a little less than two years ago and although the lawn looks fine it has been largely taken over by a yellowish thick bladed grass.  Late this coming week I am going to Roundup most of the front lawn and about half the back lawn, wait 4 or 5 days and redo the Roundup and then reseed it.  I hope my job comes out as well as my daughter's lawn.  I will most likely post some photos.
