    I was wondering where you guys buy your seed for overseeding, do you just go to HD and get the 25 lb scotts bags, or get lesco seed elsewhere? How much do you normally pay for a 20-25lb bag?

    Just trying to find the cheapest place to get my seed for this fall

    Your just about too late for fall seedings.

    We go to a local FS store (Farmer Supply). They have a turf division where they do full apps on lawns, aerate and the such. They also sell fert and herbicide to other LCO's.

    They've developed some local blends of seed for guys, so I get my seed from them knowing that the blends they sell are optimal for our area.

    In a pinch, I might go to Lesco (John Deere Landscapes) to get seed.

    Too expensive at big box store. I go to the elevator which sells grain, fert, salt, seed, etc. and get the seed there. 50# of sun shade mix for $60.

    Cheap seed is unwise. Get the good stuff. Avoid weeds, poa annua, annual rye, outdated seed and disease prone varieties.
