Lesco seed prices???

I was just wondering about there fescue prices. Anyone recall what they paid?

I have some prices on Shenandoah II, Coyote, Falcon III, Falcon II, Tar Heel, Dominion, Wolfpack, Arid 3, Airlie, and Southern Choice.

Most are $1.25 per lb. or less.

Can I save and/or get better seed at Lesco?

Ouch, that's alot to shell out for junk!

Does anyone know where I can get the latest fescue quality ratings on-line? Perferably tests for NC or nearby.

Check out Lebanon's Winning Colors

It's a blend of 40% Rembrandt (#1 ranked in NTEP trials) 30% Masterpiece (#2 ranking) and 30% Picasso (not yet submitted for trials).
I used to use Lesco Transition and I got better germination with the Lebanon and the grass is a deeper green which I find more attractive. Shemin sells it for .80/lb.
