    Is Lesco in your area? You can always call them if not. I use transition blend (by Lesco). I am sure there are many other brands available, but Lesco seems to have their stuff together. Anyway, call Lesco, they have a website also. You can not go wrong with them. Good luck.

    P.S.
    I know I am not in the midwest area, just trying to help.

    I use "Kansas Premium Fescue Blend". It was genetically engineered from Kansas University. They are nationally recognized for their horticulture research. You are not far away and might be able to purchase some. A 25# bag sells for about $29 for a distributor, but if you go to a nursery, it will cost you about $50 and this is what I charge the customer, on top of what I charge to install the seed.

    Fine fescue is hard to find by it's self. Lesco Transition Blend usually has one fine fescue in the blend. Most of what I had last year had Lancer II, looks like alot of stock has Lancer II or Biltmore, both are fine blade fescues.

    Not sure where you can buy a fine blade by itself, I wish I could.
