Ingredients

Bluegrass

Bluegrass is very durable, bounces back well from drought and heavy traffic. Bluegrass spreads through underground rhizomes to develop a thick, tough, root system, and requires moderate care to maintain its beauty. Approximately 14-28 days to germination.


Creeping Red Fescue

Fescue is used extensively in lawn mixtures, for its ability to produce in shaded areas. Fescue spreads by underground runners and makes a good, uniform sod. It does well on most types or soil, maintains a good color, and can withstand wear. Approximately 7-14 days to germination.


Annual Ryegrass

Annual Ryegrass is a light green, rapid growing, cool season annual. Coarse leaf texture, short life and clumping growth make it a poor choice for turf grass. It is best suited for highly erodible ground cover on poor or compacted soils. Approximately 5-10 days to germination.


Fine-Leafed Perennial Ryegrass

Has the ability to produce a tough turf that resists wear and tear, recovers rapidly from damage, and increases the versatility of lawns for recreational purposes. Vigorous root growth penetrates even compacted soil and makes these grasses ideal for over seeding old and thin lawns. Approximately 5-10 days to germination.


Turf Type Tall Fescue

This durable, drought resistant grass is ideal for high-traffic areas that receive less fertilizer and water than typical turf grasses. The leaf texture is coarser than Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass or fine fescues. In order to keep the blades thin a dense stand is required, so a high seeding rate is necessary during establishment of a lawn. These plants have little or no rhizome or tiller characteristics, so it is strongly recommended to be planted with 10-15% Kentucky bluegrass or perennial ryegrass. Approximately 7-12 days to germination.


Chewings Fescue

Considered to be one of the fine fescues, this grass blends well with other turf grasses like Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass. Like the other fescues, chewings is adapted to growing in shaded areas. These drought tolerant plants prefer sandier soils with lower fertility, but they are not as wear tolerant as other turf grasses.


Hard Fescue

One of the best grasses to be grown in densely shaded areas. It is very slow growing and can be considered a low maintenance grass. Hard fescue has a very low tolerance for heat, can only handle low amounts of traffic and is not adapted to close mowing. It looks best when left to grow to heights of 3 or more inches.


Sheep Fescue

A very drought tolerant bunchgrass that prefers sandy soils and requires little to no maintenance. This grass can be slow to establish, but it is very long lived once it takes hold. This grass should be planted at a relatively high seeding rate or in conjunction with other sod forming grasses when trying to establish turf due to its strong bunchgrass characteristics.


Bentgrass

Used extensively on golf courses for putting greens, this grass will tolerate very low mowing. In fact, if left uncut this grass has an almost shaggy, unkempt appearance. It has a very shallow root system, so it will not survive hot temperatures or dry conditions. Bentgrass is extremely aggressive and will form a dense mat, therefore it is not recommend to be mixed with other grasses.
