    One of our customers once re-did the front yard, got 30 cy of topsoil and used the Southern Gold seeds. We just cut /fert / aerate, she is re-seeding with Southern Gold every fall. Grass looks good, didn't need to water at all this summer.

    Thanks a whole lot for the help John. Your state is producing some great strands of Fescue like Tarheel 2. I just haven't used Gold yet and wanted some actual user info. Thanks again.

    I have used Southern Gold in my own yard and had great success with it. I wish I could find it available commercially. Great mildew resistance and wonderful germination rate. Good stuff but expensive.

    SOUTHERN GOLD.... I went to one of the do it yourselfer major store in atlanta to find some.... I heard EXCELLENT THINGS about this brand............ i was set to buy either this Southern Gold or Lesco Transition Blend...

    for some reason all the Southern Gold was locked up - like it was BANNED - andn they had these blue labels on them with a sign across them that said DO NOT SELL?? i was wondering what the heck was going on ... is this stuff super grass or something... of course the little 20 yr old working in that section didnt know a thing about why they couldnt sell this..........?

    enviro - try looking for Confederate seed - made by same people TurfSeed Inc. (bought by Scotts couple of years back). Same blend last time I checked a few years back. Good stuff. Lesco Transition is good too but I like the Confederate/Southern Gold better.
