    Has anyone on here used it? It is around $50.00 per bag, which is a good price IMO.

    Tall fescue %
    Veranda 34
    Aristotle 16
    Lindbergh 16
    Lexington 16
    Bragg 16

    weed seed .01

    I know the Aristotle is a good one, but can't find any info on the others, in the mix.

    I have been using Green Alliance TTTF, @ $75 per bag.

    that all seems really high priced, now as of last year and the year before not so much, but our prices dropped to 35 a bag for a premeium fescue blend. why called rural king, sounds like rough looking grass to me/tough for country lawns. not fine manicured turf. that is going by the name as i have no idea. curious!

    wow, you guys are getting rippped off bigtime, unless you are not buying wholesale. we use some of the best fescue available. 5 star from bwi is fantastic and is comprised of the top five university performers and Defiance fescue blend is rizome rich and heals itself like a bluegrass. not crappy grass if that is what you were getting at. we do buy in bulk though wholesale. we resell it for the price you are mentioning

    Lesco transition blend (007330) TTTF is $1/lb. Its a blend of 3 types, which are highly rated by university studies in my area.

    Lesco Trigold/Transition dropped in price from spring to fall from approx. $70/50# to $40/50# - said due to oversupply in market. I wonder if Rebel @ lowes or Home Depot dropped their prices from $95/50# bag? I don't think so!
