How To Care
Recommended Maintenance Practices:
Highest quality and durability is reached using moderate to high maintenance levels. Allow turf to establish prior to heavy use. Excellent results can be obtained using slit seeders for turf renovation. Maximum competition against Poa Annua is achieved with fall seeding. Mowing at 2” to 3” heights is recommended (lower mowing heights require higher maintenance).
Turf Establishment Guidelines:
Adequate seed bed preparation is important in new turf grass establishment as well as in over seeding. Check soil pH and apply a Starter Fertilizer (18-24-12) prior to seeding. Cool season grasses germinate best in the 60º to 85º F (16º to 30º C) soil temperature range. Select Tall Fescue Blend will germinate the best in soil temperatures of 65° or above. Frequent light irrigation and/or seed starter mulch is required for optimum germination. Germination should be visible within 14 days; complete turf establishment will take two to six months.
Use Pittmoss Prime to cover seed for patching areas.

Lesco grass seed is one of the best you can purchase.
Seeded like a madman
First and foremost I am a big fan of planting tree. Have ordered 2 maples which are taking well about 8 months after planting (august 2018) then purchased this seed and starter fertilizer for our sodded lawn that was poorly installed. The seed was put down in fall 2018 in east Tn., Did it in two stages, seed and fertilizer, then 2 weeks later again. The grass has taken beautifully and is the dark green they promise and seems very happy in the less sunny areas, not sure how well our western exposure front lawn will fair with 8+ hrs. Of sun, but i will update this fall. I do wish the seed came in smaller bags, that's a LOT of seed.
I waited a few months before reviewing this product. As a noob I researched overseeding for some time before tackling. This seed has performed well, still early but recent rains helped keep it growing. Aeration helped but there are a lot of bald spots and I did notice a lot of weeds...not 100 percent sure if they came from the seeds tho? Overall I would recommend this seed and planting tree has excellent support, the starter fertilizer I got had a rip in the bag and they were concerned, it wasn’t an issue but it’s nice to see good customer support.
