A low maintenance, drought tolerant turf designed to conserve natural resources

Self-Repairing Tall Fescue

Tall Fescue has been converted by breeders into filling a niche for a low maintenance, drought tolerant turf. Breeders have converted tall fescue into a fine textured, low growing turf making the species more esthetically acceptable. Selection of new breeds of grasses, designed to conserve natural resources, is one of the simplest improvements that can make a positive, long-term impact in the landscape.

 

Tall Fescue conserves on irrigation requirements because of its deep root system. Additionally, advantages in disease resistance have further extended the environmental range of this species.
