In environments where other turf species fail, this seed is often the prescription for success. Use it in shaded and poorly irrigated areas where fertility and pesticide inputs are either lacking or discouraged. It is a denser, dark green variety that spreads aggressively to crowd out weeds.
Its color and leaf texture are very compatible with bluegrass and ryegrass in mixtures to improve shade tolerance under lower fertility levels.
This seed quickly establishes, a bonus for slopes and other areas threatened by erosion. With only one or two annual mowings, it provides both substantial cover and visual attractiveness to golf course roughs, hillsides, and open turf areas.
