SS8000 No-Mow Hard Fescue Blend
Hard Fescue is an extremely slow growing and low growing turfgrass species. In a residential setting it looks great when mowed as seldom as one or two times a season. On steep slopes where it is not possible to mow, hard fescue will grow about as high as your ankles before laying over and ceasing to grow taller. Because of its needle-like leaf blades, hard fescue has excellent shade tolerance too.
SS8000 is a Certified blend of three improved hard fescue varieties selected for outstanding performance when mowed infrequently or never at all. SS8000 also produces excellent turf in shaded conditions.
Spartan II is a Very Dark Green "no-mow" turf with early spring green-up.
Beacon is a top performing hard fescue in the 2008 NTEP Fineleaf Fescue Trial where it shows excellent performance for shade tolerance and overall turfgrass quality.
