Turf Type Tall Fescue is gaining in popularity as a lawn grass as improved cultivars look and grow like other popular lawn grasses but are very heat and drought tolerant. Turf Type Tall Fescues have a wider leaf blade than Fine Fescues and are often used in seed blends where a shade loving, slow growing or drought resistant turf is desired. Tall Fescue lawns have been known to only need mowing once per month and require much less water and nutrients to thrive than traditional seeds like Kentucky Bluegrass or Perennial Ryegrass.
A lawn planted with a majority of Turf Type Tall Fescue will not only look great, it will be able to withstand natures extremes like heat and drought while providing the home owner with a low maintenance, low input, easy to maintain lawn. Not many grasses can deliver on that claim.
