Default Where to buy grass seed for cheap?

Hi there, I am looking for a store that sells grass seed for cheap (bulk)? Not home depot/lowes of course.

Looking for Bermuda, Zoysia or Centipede. Get them ready for seeding lawn for fall. Thanks in advance!

Grass seed isn't cheap, unfortunately. If you're looking for a local place, try Blackhawk Hardware.

You can check Supersod in Pineville, they have Bermuda seed. Can't say if it is cheap or not. I don't think they have Zoysia available in seed - but I may be wrong.

I would be careful about going with cheap seed. It can be full of weeds.

I get mine at Organic Plant Care. It isn't cheap, though.

Agree with JayHawk....if you get seed, make sure it is a reputable place. Lots of seed is full of weeds. Lowe's and HD sell in large containers, with a sticker detailing the amount of weed seed, grass seed, and inert stuff (filler). I get my seed there, don't have another recommendation, sorry!

Those types of grass need to be seeded in late June - early July not in the fall. Bermuda stlye grasses need heat to germinate.
Also the cheaper the seed the more weed seed it will have. Buy quality once otherwise you will most likely need multiple seedings and will spend more in the long run.

Watch on Craigs List as we get closer to Fall. There's a guy in Huntersville that sells big bags (50lbs?) of Lesco seed at a decent price.

I saw his ad in the Spring as well, but I missed out on getting there.

That's what I use. Keep an eye out, and I will too, please report back here if you see the ad.

I never heard of Lesco, is it a good drought and heat tolerant dress?

Lesco is a brand. Do a search and there are some local distributors around.
The only good drought and heat tolerant grass is a bermuda type - there are a couple of them - but as I said in my earlier post there types of seeds need to go down just when the weather is getting hot. If you put it down in the fall you are just throwing your money out the window.
