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.

How To 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.

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.

First time home owner. Front lawn was a disaster. All sand and weeds. A few bags of peat moss and top soil and some overseeding with the Lasco Trans Blend in September and it's all emrald green now. Thick and lush.

Buy it, don't go to a box store for grass seed!
After researching online for weeks about which seed to buy, everything kept pointing to Lesco. I spread it and within a week it sprouted. A month later and lots of Tennessee rain, it is filling in nicely. Pure seed here, no filler. So glad I didn't buy cheap KY31 fescue weed. I wanted some type of heat tolerant true Kentucky bluegrass but it just doesn't do well in Tennessee, so the Lesco transition blend was an alternate quality choice. High germination rate, even in rocky clay soil.
My little sprouts.. Spagnum peat moss or a compost humus blend does these seeds justice as a topcoat

Lesco all pro grass seed
I aerated my back yard last fall and it is gorgeous right now. It is plush and so green. I did my front yard yesterday due to the mild winter we have had here in Tennessee. I'm sure it will be as beautiful as the back yard.
A few spots I missed. Will redo this spring.

Good fescue blend
Most of this seed germinated within a week and is growing strong! Much better than Scott's or Pennington fescues in previous years. Will need to give it a year to test its drought and disease tolerance.

Murphy C on Apr 18, 2017
This brand of grass seed was highly recommended. I have tried all of the other brands from the local store such as Lowe's and Home Deport and they did not work. More weeds than grass. So I'm hoping this brand works!

Recommended by a coworker and Lesco is a well known company with quality products. It is perfectly reasonable pick by builders.
Kevin F on Feb 24, 2017
I've purchased Lesco seed and fertilizers for a number of years because it's a superior product. Expensive, yes, but if you're serious about having a nice lawn, you will not settle for cheap. Do you see Lesco products on TV? Don't need to when you see the results and push by word of mouth! You will not be disappointed is all I can say and until the company starts putting out a inferior product, I will continue to purchase it.

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 ??
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.
Did you guys put starter fertilizer before laying out the seed?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Enter an answer to this Time to Plant
The ideal time to fertilize new grass seed is before or while the seed is being sown. Although starter fertilizers vary slightly in composition, most have quick-release nitrogen, which gives the seeds the nutritional boost they need to promote healthy germination and to ensure rapid establishment. Depending on the brand, starter fertilizers have either equal parts of nitrogen, phosphate and potash or two parts of nitrogen to one part of phosphate and one part of potash.The term "starter fertilizer" refers to placing small amounts of fertilizer near seeds so that the emerging seedling roots can find nutrients quickly. Whether to use a starter fertilizer depends on the how much organic material is in the soil, time of planting and soil pH levels. Seeds planted in warm, rich soil are less likely to benefit from starter fertilizer. Starter fertilizer is helpful when planting in poor soil or when soil is cold and wet.

Starting Check
Before using chemical fertilizers, the soil should be tested to see what is lacking and what the soil pH is. Test kits can be purchased at home and garden centers, or soil can be sent to a lab for testing. Rich, dark soil with plenty of organic material is likely to have enough nutrients easily available to seedling roots and may not benefit from starter fertilizer. Phosphorus for root growth and nitrogen for leaf development are especially necessary for newly sprouted plants, so checking these levels is important. If either of these nutrients are lacking in the soil, a starter fertilizer can be applied to give the young plants a good start.
Locked Tight
Soil pH is important to nutrient availability in the soil. When soil pH is below 6, phosphorus becomes tied up with iron and aluminum in the soil and cannot be used by the young plant roots. Soil that tests for sufficient phosphorous but has a low pH level may still benefit from a starter fertilizer application. Adding lime to the soil is good way to increase pH levels to make nutrients in low pH soil available to garden plants. Liming lasts longer than adding starter fertilizers and will benefit all plants, not just seedlings.question.
I'm planting a starter lawn. Plans to begin in March. Is this going to be a good time in NC?
Cynthia K on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: definitely!
Can I lay this with Kentucky Bluegrass in establishing new lawn? What amount of each should I use to overseesd? And how much starter fertilizer should I use with them?
A shopper on Oct 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure about the first question. I completely renovated my lawn in late Sept. Rented tiller and tilled in 2 inches of good topsoil etc. I followed the instruction from the NC State University Cooperative Extension service exactly. I now have a beautiful green yard. I got soil test from the state first which told me how much of each nutrient to use but if you don't have a soil test this what they recommend...
If you did not obtain a soil test: Follow these recommendations for all grasses except centipedegrass.
1. Apply 75 pounds of ground limestone per 1,000
sq ft.
2. Apply a starter type fertilizer (one that is high in phosphorus) based on the type of grass and the planting method. Fertilizer bags have a three-number system indicating the primary nutrients, such as 8-8-8 or 5-10-10. These numbers denote the N-P-K ratio—the percentage of each nutrient in a fertilizer. The percentages are always noted in the following order:
N Nitrogen for green color and growth.
P2O5 Phosphorus for good establishment and rooting.
K2O Potassium to enhance pest and environmental stress tolerance.
Some common examples of starter type fertilizers required for a 1,000 sq ft area include 40 pounds of 5-10-10, 20 pounds of 10-20-20, or 16 pounds of 18-24-6. For sandy soils, typical to the coastal plain and sandhills of North Carolina, fertilizer rates should be increased by 20 percent.

can i over seed transition pro on perienal rye or should i kill out the rye first ?
A shopper on May 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would say to rid area of rye grass,first .you,lol be using to kinds of seed .i would eliminate the rye first, my husband roundup entire yard.after grass was dead he rotilled yard and brought in some fresh soil,that was good grade black color, and raked it in to the tilled soil and added a light mushroom compost.dragged lawn flat and overseeded lawn.cover with wheat straw and water lightly for a couple weeks.il will be the brightest green you love it.i used the lesco shade seed in backyard due to less sunshine hours do to trees.lessco cost more because it does,not have a bunch of trash in it the the other seed companies put in the seed bags.well worth the price.could send pic of my lawn to planting tree to send to you.also would not put seed down to the hot summers would wait to fall season to plant.that per my son a landscaper.hope this helps Angie,and glenn
Can seed be sowed on top of dead sod that didn't have netting removed?
rocky w on Jul 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This far less than ideal.
1- you can't be sure what caused the sod to die.
2- the dead sod will act as a barrier to the soil retarding access to nutrients and root development
I recommend that the dead sod (and netting) be entirely removed and replaced by a mix of top soil and peat moss (5 parts soil to 1 part peat) .
After removing the old material, loosen the soil approx 2" down.
Spread a 1/2" of the top soil/peat mix.
Seed the area and lightly rake it.
Spread another 1/4" of the soil/peat mix on top.
Spread a good starter fertilizer and then water well.
FYI- summer is one of the worst times to start new seed

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.
