that lets us know when to apply, there are sites that monitor this. I follow

the GDDTracker. Growing Degree days is what everyone should follow.
GDD is the way to go. GDD shows the earliest is around Apr 9.....maybe.

Has anyone had luck with lesco's 33/33/33 bluegrass, rye, and fescue blends for overseeding? Home depot is selling 25# bags for $64. Wondering what a John Deere Landscapes would sell it for?

Really !!!!! Why would anyone buy seed at Home Depot. Lesco is probably low 80 per 50# bag. Though I'm not sure they have that exact mix. Price and company will mix up what you need and beat most prices
