Does anyone know the differences between the seed at Tri Star and the seed at Lesco or John Deere Landscape are - I believe they're both blue tag but is one better than the other??

Ive never been to tri-star but I will tell you this about Lesco. I tried Lesco seed one fall and had TERRIBLE results with it mainly there being a ton of Poa in the mixture. I will never use it again.

I now get all my seed from Merriam Feed. Had great results with their tall fescues.

Fair price for selling a yard

Just trying to find a fair price to sell my yards, I will be selling a total of 10, 5 in the Shannon Valley/ Indian Creek Area, 4 in the Nottingham estates area, and one remaining lawn near 127th and Antioch. All the lawns are between college and 135, and between Antioch and Nieman, in south overland park. I charge between $25 and $40 with the average at around $30 or $35. Im terrible at estimating square footages so im not even going to try. If anyone has any Input I would appreciate it, Also if anyone is interested in buying any of the yards please pm Me or respond to this post and I can get you pics, and addresses, Thanks.

Why estimate the square footage? Just get a measuring wheel. Length x width = sqft

What's your reason for selling?

The reason for selling the yards is I'm going to school in the fall and I'm not interested in coming back just to mow 10 to 15 yards.

Hey anyone one know where to rent a good core aerator from. I rented a bluebird from home depot last fall to take care of my customers and had to man handle it the whole time. I really don't want to get my butt kicked again this year.
