    How much are you paying for your seed this year for overseeding and renovations? Do you just buy bulk of the 20-25lb bags? What seed is your favorite with the best results?

    We go with the current local mix of KBG, P. Ryegrass, & C.R. Fescue for the Fall seeding... Spring seeding may include Annual Ryegrass...
    The results are always the same dependant only on seedbed prep and moisture control... of course this year we are still dealing with the excessive heat... 95 degrees today for the Packer Game, just doesn't happen,,, yet here it is... :)

    Where do you buy the seed? I am looking at needing enough to cover 5 acres (15 1/3 acre lots) and thats going to be a lot of little 25 lbs bags. How big do you buy in?
