How To Care for your new Lesco Tall Fescue Select 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.

Use Pittmoss Prime to cover seed for patching areas.

Is this grass good in Florida?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is not going to be a good seed for Florida. Most grass types in Florida are warm season and are best sodded.
Should Lesco Tall Fescue Select Grass Seed be used in combination with fertilizer? I plan to aerate my lawn (in Maryland) in the next week or two and then overseed. For best results, should I also use fertilizer, and if so, what kind? Should the fertilizer be put down at the same time as the seed?
