      Hello, you posted on one of my posts a while back about K31 grass. I know you dont like it. I planted it in my back yard and its comming in pretty good. I would like to have something a little nicer in my front yard. The Lesco Trasnition Blend is too fine profiled for my tastes. Is there a TTTF that is still pretty thick profiled like or almost like K-31 but a little darker green?. Thanks for any feedback. I just posted this question in the public forum but would like your advice.

      Thanks Agrotis. I just figured out how to receive your message. I haven't visited the NTEP website in a while, but I will.

      Udmanden, i like rebel 4. - http://www.turf.com/ - You can get it lowe's for 2$ a pound. That said, i have noticed a drop in purity with that seed, so if i can find it, i will use "bullseye" from now on. That is the #1 rated seed for this area. You can use any of the top 10 on this list - http://www.ntep.org/data/tf06/tf06_11-8/tf06nc110t.txt - And be reasonably sure that you have a quality product. I go by the rating's for July/August to make a final decision. For best result's, plant your grass in the fall.

      Agrostis,

      What grass seed are you using besides the Lesco transitional brand? I live in Greensboro, so let me know if there's a better option. Thanks.
