    I am pretty sure we have gone through about 10,000lbs by the end of our seeding. we still have some to do but are going for dormant seeding later this fall.

    how about it, i know some guys will use small amounts, but i remember a thread on here not long ago where one guy was ordering his first round of seed at 90K lbs!!!!!!!(but that is rye for AZ during the winter, ours was only rennovations from summer damages)

    As of today we have used 9,000 lbs of tall fescue. Its been a great seeding year but man has it been tough for existing customers... we have picked up alot but im nervous about losing some.....the yards that arent irrigated are burned up and crabgrass, spurge, and nutsedge has been terrible this year...the dust bowl has been fun..its rained 1/3 inch in 2 months here so its been a challenge to say the least.

    This year has shown how poorly designed some of the irrigation systems are. We would have customers call and complain that they had perfect triangles and circles were no seed was coming up. Fire up the heads and theres nothing hitting those areas:dizzy: Im sick of 2010
