Let’s get this out in the open. I didn’t even know Neseed existed until today. I think Neseed stands for “Northeast Seed.” They operate out of Hartford, CT and sell nice 50lb bags of sun and shade mix grass seed.
I told you in my last post that I ran out of seed for my lawn aeration / overseeding project. I had to run back out today to spend some more hard earned dollars buying more seed. The only difference was that today I didn’t go to Home Depot. I went to my local Ace Hardware store instead. I knew things were going to be more pricey, but I just wasn’t in the mood to drive all the way to the Depot.
When I got to the store, I looked around for a bit. I saw smaller bags of the typical Scotts and Pennington grass seed. When I looked a bit further, I bumped into the grand daddy of bags of grass seed. It was a 50lb bag of Neseed sun and shade mix. I took a quick scan of the tag and found the following types of seed:
Neseed Sun and Shade Mix
– Creeping Red Fescue
– Genesis Tall Fescue
– Nexus Perennial Rye
– Kentucky Bluegrass
– Amazing Perennial Rye
– Alene Kentucky Bluegrass
Since this is basically what I was looking for, I asked the guy how much it cost. He told me $120 and I said forget it. Then, I started thinking about how I dislike running out for more grass seed all the time and this is probably a better value per pound. I just grabbed it and bought it. As it ends up, it is somewhat less expensive per pound than the Home Depot brand names. Also, I did a quick search on the types of seeds that are in the bag and they have fairly good reviews. I am happy with my purchase.
When I got back to the house, I aerated the back yard and spread the seed. I felt good getting this project behind me. Like I said in my previous post, now I just wait. Hopefully the Spring rains will grow me a nice lawn this year.
