TTTT was initially suggested to me by a good friend in KS. (grassman). Followed up shortly after that by Iowa State University. Now I swear by it, and most customers are very pleased with it.
I only seed with a 5 Blend mix Turf Fescue doing this for atleast 20 years
Last lawn I installed the customer was mowing it in 2 weeks His new neighbor ask him if it was sod. This the 4th week I need get over there take a pic of it
