    I'm looking around this year at different places for seed. Most of the yards I maintain are Fescue and Bermuda. Where do all of you get your seed from?

    I use Wetzel Seed Comapny, IKEX in Pittsburgh(new vendor for me) and Morgantown Ag. All can get me specific blends of what I need for each job in large quantities. A friend and fellow LCO blended a mix two summers ago that is really great for the lawns around here, and is sold thru the Morgantown Ag store here..A little pricey at $ 2.00 per pound, but when you want quality, price doesn't matter as much.

    Thanks all. I've been using my local Lesco and can't really complain. I was just seeing what some of my other options were. Broken Leg, I think I've heard of that place in Roxboro, but not 100% sure.

    I typically use Lesco for the better maintained turf stands. I have some accounts that oat planting would be an improvement over what the customer wants.
  10. We use local seed suppliers and can get any custom blends we want.
