Product Details

Lesco Transition Blend Grass seed is one of the best grass seed blends around.  You cannot get this at your local garden center.  Lesco provides a clean weed-free grass seed that germinates well.  

Three premium turf type tall fescues to include Falcon IV, Shenandoah Elite, Restore, Catalyst, Stetson II, Padre, Kingdom (DB1), Comete, and/or Renovate.  

The Transition Blend Seed will germinate within 7-10 days when ground temperatures are above 60 degrees.  This makes a fast seed germination time to grow a nice quality turf.  

There are many types of Tall Fescue Seeds.  Lesco provides only the best growing varieties that show dark green color, are drought tolerant, and are also good for high traffic areas.  

All Pro Transition Blend will provide a durable turf that will tolerate drought, heat, shade, and traffic. The varieties in All Pro Transition Blend contain endophytes to increase resistance to above ground feeding insects. Falcon IV has qualified as a Turf grass Water Conservation Alliance variety (www.tgwca.org). When seeded at recommended rates, All Pro Transition Blend will form a dense, fine textured turf with excellent mowing qualities. All Pro Transition Blend components have undergone turf trials to screen for desirable traits, including disease resistance. Geographical Adaptation: All Pro Transition Blend is suitable for permanent turf in the Warm Humid, Warm Arid, Cool Humid, and Cool Arid zones.

Suggested Usage: All Pro Transition Blend is suitable for golf course roughs, home lawns, athletic fields, commercial turf areas, parks and playgrounds, particularly where irrigation is limited. All Pro Transition Blend is wear and traffic tolerant.

My landscaper uses this seed and I was impressed with the contents and how fast it grew. My lawns went from looking like the Nevada desert to an actual green lawn in no time. I plan on using it as long as I have a lawn to care for.

I used to use this seed more than 6 years ago at our old home address. It was absolutely beautiful grass. Back then you could buy this seed in a number of different places. The past two years, I've requested this seed from a private lawn care group and a big name company. Both used something else without ever telling me they couldn't get what I asked for. Now, I'm doing it myself, and I'm so glad that The Planting Tree has this lesco seed. There's simply nothing else like it! Thanks!

I have used the other grass seed at local stores, they are junk. I got more weeds than grass and it was not Dark Green. This product gave me the best lawn I have had in years, the key is to water often.

When should I aerate my yard for overseeding?
Paulette T on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends on temperature. Ideally September is the month to aerate and overseed with temperatures from 60's to low 80's. Be sure to repair all areas that are bare by loosening the soil and topdressing the seed with Pittmoss for best results.
My grass is Ky31. Can I mix this seed with that?
mary ann r on Sep 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can however, this blend of fescue seed is much better than Ky-31.
Sun and shade on lawn. Will this work? Or do I also need the shade mix?
Roddy T on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This mix works virtually anywhere. As always, soil prep, seed layment and lots of water are your best friends. Now is the time for grass growing. Intense heat is no good ??
What setting should I use for a scotts ez green edge guard broadcast spreader?
Dwayne H on Nov 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Every spreader is different. Start at a smaller setting and seed the area. If your overseeding spread enough seed to cover at 5lbs per 1000 sqft. If it only takes 2lbs increase the rate.

Planting & Care

How to Plant & Care for Your new Lesco Transition Blend Grass Seed

Recommended Maintenance Practices:

Highest quality and durability is reached using moderate to high maintenance levels. Allow turf to establish prior to heavy use. Excellent results can be obtained using slit seeders for turf renovation. Maximum competition against Poa Annua is achieved with fall seeding. Mowing at 2” to 3” heights is recommended (lower mowing heights require higher maintenance).

Turf Establishment Guidelines:

Adequate seed bed preparation is important in new turf grass establishment as well as in over seeding. Check soil pH and apply a Starter Fertilizer (18-24-12) prior to seeding. Cool season grasses germinate best in the 60º to 85º F (16º to 30º C) soil temperature range. Select Tall Fescue Blend will germinate the best in soil temperatures of 65° or above. Frequent light irrigation and/or seed starter mulch is required for optimum germination. Germination should be visible within 14 days; complete turf establishment will take two to six months.

Planting Instructions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.  

 

Planting a shrub digging the hole

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 2 - 3 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Worked for me.
I purchased this grass seed last fall and it worked very good. All of the seed germinated and is still looking really good.

I just fertilized it again with starter fertilizer and its already greening up. I would recommend!

Lesco is the best.
We planted Lesco 2 years ago and it proved to be the drought tolerant plant we were looking for. In 3 years we have watered three times. Rain is our water source and the roots went deep. I will always use Lesco.
