Fescue – Tall (Turf-Type)


We sell many different varieties of Tall Fescue, depending on what our inventory holds. This Tall Fescue is for using for lawns or turf applications; not for animal forage. Tall Fescue works great in athletic fields and other areas that get a lot of traffic. This type of grass also grows a deeper tap root, once established which makes it a great drought tolerant type grass as well and tends to stay greener longer in the season than some of the other grass species. The blade on the grass is a bit wider on it than other species so it has a coarser look to it.
