Anyone here use Lesco? In the past I've used Scotts fertilizers but I want to switch to something a little more professional for my yard. Does Lesco have a 4 step feeding program throughout the year? Any input would be appreciated.. THANKS!

Scott's makes some good products - VG for homeowners who pick them up at big boxes like Lowes/Home Cheapo. I think they are better than a lot of Lesco stuff (too much MOP in Lesco).
Lesco of course has a little of everything you need for one stop shopping, sometimes priced well, sometimes not.

Does Scott's make different grades of fert.? The four step program at the Home Cheapo is packaged differently and less expensive then the nursery. I prefer to buy it at the nursery because I don't trust the big box stores. The nursery man said that Scott's is the best for residential applications. What do you think?

Leco or scotts -- doesn't matter which brand! Both have basically the same ingredients inside thier pretty bags. Difference in the slow release characteristics and sgn is the primary difference.

What matters is a well thought out program approriate gor each of your customers yard

A good turf guy could make a good lawn using either brand.

Howver,their are better choice than both of those on the market both in terms of quality and price.

When you buy Scotts- you're most likely getting the homogeneous particle Turfbuilder products. A bit pricey over time for a business. If you're a homeowner, it's a no-brainer. If you want methylene-urea type products, your best bet is to go with a Nutralene based product blend, which will last longer than the Scotts product does. These are only available in pro blends for the most part (Wilbur-Ellis out west)- but some stores in the Midwest carry Nutralene containing turf ferts.
