Turf Type Tall Fescue
Tall fescues have excellent drought tolerance and a deep root system, which reduces watering requirements. They do require watering to avoid summer dormancy and promote healthy growth.
When planting turf type tall fescue, plant the seed about 45 days before your typical first fall frost date (Photo 3). This allows the grass time to grow before winter weather.
Turf-type tall Fescues are also attractive to homeowners because they provide a year-round green color. They are more finely textured than older pasture-type varieties, and they produce a dense lawn.
These improved varieties are also more shade-tolerant than Kentucky bluegrass. They can thrive in all climates and are resistant to Rhizoctonia solani’s brown patch disease. They are also more resistant to traffic than many cool-season grasses. They do well on parks and sports fields when mowed at 1.5 inches or more. These grasses are also recommended for lower-use lawns.
