#4684103 - 03/04/18 12:56 PM Grass seed suppliers?

Need to get some grass seed, probably rye to start then let it die out and get something hardier in there. It's a strip alongside my driveway that we often put a tire on for maneuvering, so it gets occasional automotive traffic. It has been so wet it turned muddy and the grass that was there for ages got beat up. I believe we are in zone 7a, fwiw.

I know all the major box store brands. Not sure if there are other brands or suppliers that I should consider that may have "better" supplies.

Locally we have HD, Lowes and Ace HW, if a certain nationwide brand is better.

Thanks!

Do you have any local independent garden type centers around? A lot of those guys really know their stuff.

Sounds like a good idea getting rid of that but be very cautious of Hantavirus! You have had some cases in New Jersey.

This is for curbsides and gets good reviews. Price is right as well.

There are heavy traffic grass seeds, Google it. I prefer Kentucky Blue Grass myself.
Some brands claim to have less inert weed seeds, like some premium Scotts products.
Rye germinates 3 times faster than Kentucky Blue grass.

(Seedland.com) Keep away from the big box stuff loaded with weed seed and POA seed.
