Lesco Fert - Where to buy/which one to get

stslimited84April 14, 2012

Hey all,

I posted a few days ago about this being my first spring at our house. Based on my last thread it was suggested I have enough grass to get through till the fall when I can then overseed. For now fert was suggested.

After reading through the forums it seems alot of you use Lesco so I think Im going to use it...1 for the results you guys get with it and 2 for the support i can receive if i need help from you guys.

I know I need a soil test so I'm trying to find a place I can get that done. I'm in a suburb of Philly if you guys can point me in the right direction.

As far as lesco ferts, can you recommend which to get to start off with? Its getting late in spring so id like to get something down. Where can i find a lesco dealer at? tried googling that info but wasn't getting the results i expected.

I was looking at one of these two spreaders...let me know what you think or if there are better options:

Here's a few a pictures of the front lawn...man do i want to get it to that lush green like you guys have!

Any and all input is welcome :)

Thanks in advance

Penn State county extension agent plus your zip. County Agriculture Agent + your zip, or some variation will get you to the service which is headquartered at Penn State U.
Lesco --- try lesco + your zip. I tried lesco + pennsylvania and got numerous locations

found the county extension office and a JDL dealer. My confusion was due to not realizing Lesco was bought out by JDL.

I'm working on getting the soil tested. Any recommendations on which fert or spreader I listed above?

I'm on about 3/4 acre.

I have never read a complaint about an Earthway 2150. Buy it once - for you lifetime.

Try this one. If it doesn't work for you, try another state's extension service that has climate equal to yours. PSU also has phone numbers available to get publications and solutions.
