Need Bulk Landscape Fabric & Grass seed

Any sources? I feel like getting this stuff at the retail stores is as dumb as getting mulch & soil at the retail stores.

I wouldnt mind buying 50 rolls + of fabric. Maybe a half ton of premium seed.

Pennington Seed, is the best bet

they grow their own seed grass and its some of the best

They only sell wholesale and are very big into errosion control

How does $1,200 plus freight (I would guess a few hundred if that) on 1,000 pounds of premium seed sound. CSI geoturf is the name of the company, I'm sure they are on the web. Let me know if you want a phone number to the owner or his son who runs a branch. They might do you a little better on the price also, that's just a close guess.
