    I have the tag in my truck. I will check tomorrow. The place I buy it from mixes their own and tends to be some of the nicer stuff out there. And i think it was triple 19 but I have to check that too. I went through 500+lbs of seed this year I should know the composition of it but I still dont

    No problem. It seems to turn out pretty nice! I also like to use lesco's double eagle seed which is just rye. People seem to have a bias against rye and peopel around here think its a junk grass but i love it

    kbg is nice but it takes a long time to germinate. pennstate has the bluegrass in it but i think its only 20-40%. it is nice but it usually takes about a month or so for it to germinate

    Yea it takes awhile but it's also blended in with some fescue and rye. But most lawns around here is Bluegrass so when the rye comes through it definitely sticks out

    yeah that makes the difference. everything around here is mostly just crappy mixed grass unless the yard has been redone recently. and even if it has, usually its blue grass rye or fescue so it blends well

    The first picture is a yard repair I did a few pages back. The second and third are a yard repair I did for the garbage company I do work for. They had a truck back through a yard. The fourth picture is the content of the seed I use. And finally my new to me plow for the 1500 that I brought home tonight
