Lesco Fertilizer sold at HOME DEPOT

Does anyone know if the Lesco fertilizer sold at home depot is the same as the Lesco fertilizer used by golf courses and other professional lawn care companies? I was wondering if it's the same quality and mix. They sell a 19-0-07 Dimension Crabgrass control.

I think it is. I called my local lesco store and asked if the grass seed sold at home depot was the same stuff and he said yes, but they try not to stock the exact same thing so they don't give a direct price comparison. thay sell seed by the pound also. you actually get a better deal at lesco if your buying large quantitys

How much is the 19-0-07 Dimension at Depot?

It is NOT the same. The stuff at HD is bagged by Lesco particularly for them. They lack many of the contents. I've spoke to Lesco store managers abiut this, and I've spoke to upper management. Now, MANY of the numbers will be the same, but many won't.

One thing to note in this discussion, Lesco does not manufacturer or bag any fertilizer, these functions have been sold off along with the credit department. I can also tell you (based on 6 years working at Lesco) that the majority of the products sold at Home Depot are the exact same as those sold in the service centers.

This fact about the manufacture and bagging of the Lesco is a very good point and is exactly right. The store product thing I think is a zone to zone thing, because as we (all of us members) have talked to others around the country through this (and other) site(s), we have found that many of these products ARE the same.

It's ~$8 cheaper for 50# 19-0-6 .15 dimension than I pay directly from Lesco as a small quantity homeowner.

What will really irritate me though is if neighbors catch on and start buying products with reasonable formulations. I still count on the edge I get using a pseudo-lesco program as opposed to scotts over-nitrogen pre-m crap.
