    Looking for peopel with alot of experience working with the Lesco Renovator. I need suggested seed rate settings for Tall Fescue that are proven and work effectively.

    What is your setting for lawns that need to be filled in?

    What is your setting for lawns that have large bare areas?

    Thanks

    I use 90 TTTF/10 KYB and I always use the setting of 6-7.

    I am sure that all machines are different so this may not help you.

    Best way to see what you are putting down is go over blacktop with the gate open. Go over it twice and you will see what rate you are actually putting down.

    Lesco has a sheet that shows you what certain seeding rates should look like if you don't know.

    I go over all lawns twice if just thickening up...and I go over twice and broadcast 2-3# on new seedings.
