What did you guys pay this year for 50 Lbs of a Turf Type Tall Fescue?
Tall FESCUE is the bane of these Kentucky Blue Lawns. You can have all of it for free!!!!
Sorry, I am a northerner and I know that you gents down south make nice lawn out of that stuff but up here it is worse than a disease. I am replying to your thread because I am interested in what you pay for it. Our seed of choice is a blend of Kentucky Blue, Red Fescue and mixed rye. I get my seed in 25# bags and cost varies with the blend, anywhere from about 30 to 60 dollars a bag. take care.
Around $36 + tax.
My dealer has Kentucky31 for $28 + tax
72 cents per pound of Lesco Transition Blend Turf type Tall fescue.....
I paid $1.02/lb for Lesco's transition blend a couple of weeks ago.
I've been a diehard Lesco fan for years. I've bought all my stuff from them every year. But they went nuts for seed prices this spring. Went from .68 to 1.03 per lbs. Then back to .91 this fall. I can get the same quality from another person delivered for .72 per lbs.
Lesco went from $8.50 to $11 for fert plus a stupid fuel surcharge. My other place its $6.50. Needless to say, Lesco has lost many $1000's from me this season. Corporate headquarters did it to them. Took away their ability at each dealer to price competitively. Their prices went sky high compared to everyone else. They also price stuff different in every area.
cheapest I have found anything in my area is $1.35 per lb. the stuff I generally use (millenium tall fescue) is closer to $1.60 per lb.
no lesco around here...just the local nurseries
Kentucky 31 for $31.00 50lbs. Lesco transtion blend for $36.00 50 lbs.
