This is a new blend of TTTF that my local seed supplier is selling as a mix of all 3. The LS stands for lateral spread. The tech sheets look very good on these variates of grass. They have spreading properties similar to bluegrass. Just wondering if anybody here has had any experience with them yet? I am going out tomorrow and going to aerate and seed 2 lawns with this new seed. Will be interesting to see how well it does.

Tech sheet next to each seed variate with all the info.

Drew Kinder of Seedsuperstore found that the claims were much exaggerated.

Be a bit skeptical. Include some heat tolerant bluegrass in the mix--to get more self-repair ability.

Very interesting. Well even if it does not spread well it is still very highly rated seed in all areas according the NTEP. I guess we will find out next summer one way or the other.
