Chewings Fescue Seed
McKay’s Chewings Fescue is medium to dark green in colour. Chewings fescue is an ideal choice if you need low maintenance grass in shady situations where trees compete for nutrients and water. This grass performs well in open sun and moderate shade. It exhibits a very fine almost wiry texture and when left unmowed grows 12 to 15 inches high giving a ‘meadow’ effect. Grown on non-irrigated sites, Chewings Fescue will eventually go dormant and revive when the rains return. Chewings Fescue requires less than half the fertiliser and less mowing than other cool season turf grasses. It is ideal for sites that are hard to mow, on slopes, along creeks, roadsides, and golf course roughs and non-irrigated fairways, in reclamation areas, or as a cover crop under grapes and orchards.
