    I've been opting for another Fescue blend to use this year in my own lawn, in the past years I have only used Lesco Transition Blend or Gold Blend.

    There's a few others i'm interested in trying, but I wanted to get feedback from anyone who's used them:

    - Combat Extreme (Outside Pride's blend of Fescue for the Transition Zone)


    I'm very interested in the SHENANDOAH blends, but I can't get any distributor information.

    I'd love Shenandoah as well, but my guy only offers a three way mix of Falcon, Trooper, and Escalade.

    I used to work for a company here in Charlotte called FAIRWAY GREEN, they're headquartered out of Raleigh NC.
    They used only FALCON IV blend, over $100 per 50lb bag (too rich for my blood)

    I Just bought seed at JDL called supreme tall fescue blend and it had Falcon and Shenandoah in it.

    Here are the Shenandoah tech sheets. There are four types. Be sure you don't get one of the older types when you paid for the newest Shenandoah cultivar. Shenandoah 4 or Elite Shenandoah.
