    I used Transition Blend from Lesco for my yard. I reseeded 2 1/2 weeks ago and its coming in really nicely. I did just my back yard to see how the tall fescue looks and if all goes well, I will do the front and sides next year.

    Lesco's Tuff Turf & Shady mix. I've mixed in a little Bluegrass on a couple lawns for some deeper color. Turns out really nice so far.

    We are using a mix which consists of 70% Tri-Rye Gold, 15% Thermal Blue, 15% Thermal Blue Blaze. We have been seeding for the last three weeks and so far the rye grass germination is excellent.
