Festuca arundinacea. Turf type. Tall Fescue stands up to traffic, drought, cold, shade, pets, and mowing. It is far tougher than conventional lawn grasses like Kentucky blue grass, but it still makes a lush green lawn. Use Tall Fescue seeds to overseed existing lawn at a rate of 1.8kg (4 lbs) per thousand square feet. Or seed a new area, with no turf present, by seeding at 3.6kg (8 lbs) per thousand square feet. Fescue can be mixed with wildflower blends or Micro-Clover to cover in an area densely and quickly. It still requires mowing approximately every two weeks in the growing season.
Fescue is also a major component of our Chafer Beetle Resistant Lawn Blend.
