what are your guys' thoughts on a good TTTF seed? Think Pennington is the best? We have been using Defiance, really liked it but if there is something better out there i will try it...if i remember correctly helena was selling it for around $50 a bag last year...

I think that was for the 3 way fescue blend with a little bit of bluegrass mixed in.

I picked up the 3 way fescue from Donnie at John Deere for like $52 a bag today. So a little over $1 a pound for some blue label. The best price I could get from Grass Pad was $1.19 lb

Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself to all the kc area lcos. I'm not working for myself yet but am working for a nationwide Co. Managing one account: oak park mall. The place is not looking too great now as we have irrigation off on most of the northside of property due to some construction. I'm looking to branch out on my own next season, ill probably be looking for accounts this December, what do you guys think?

Is it brickman doing oak park Mall? They need to cleanup some of that mulch they still have. I thought they would of had an in-house crew there.
