View Full Version : rural king 5 fescue blend

Has anyone on here used it? It is around $50.00 per bag, which is a good price IMO.

Tall fescue %
Veranda 34
Aristotle 16
Lindbergh 16
Lexington 16
Bragg 16

weed seed .01

I know the Aristotle is a good one, but can't find any info on the others, in the mix.

I have been using Green Alliance TTTF, @ $75 per bag.

that all seems really high priced, now as of last year and the year before not so much, but our prices dropped to 35 a bag for a premeium fescue blend. why called rural king, sounds like rough looking grass to me/tough for country lawns. not fine manicured turf. that is going by the name as i have no idea. curious!

I havent bought any this year...but good quality TURF TYPE has always been around 90-100 per bag......

wow, you guys are getting rippped off bigtime, unless you are not buying wholesale. we use some of the best fescue available. 5 star from bwi is fantastic and is comprised of the top five university performers and Defiance fescue blend is rizome rich and heals itself like a bluegrass. not crappy grass if that is what you were getting at. we do buy in bulk though wholesale. we resell it for the price you are mentioning

Lesco transition blend (007330) TTTF is $1/lb. Its a blend of 3 types, which are highly rated by university studies in my area.

I'm wrong...srry guys.

Lesco Trigold/Transition dropped in price from spring to fall from approx. $70/50# to $40/50# - said due to oversupply in market. I wonder if Rebel @ lowes or Home Depot dropped their prices from $95/50# bag? I don't think so!

Why do you have a less expensive blend. Lesco Team Mates is about $95 a bag that seems to be the least expensive quality seed that they have. My local farm center Roorks has a Lasting Green blend that I get for $75 and retails for $99 but KBG at Lesco in Vineland is $189 I just bought the last 3 bags at Roorks that they had for $159 and that was a deal.
