RTF Tall Fescue Seedx
RTF Tall Fescue Seed
Fescue grass has long been the first choice for the home owners of Australia’s cooler regions. A cool season all-rounder that is as good looking as it is tough, it has proven itself over the years as one of the very best choices for Australia’s unique conditions.
Unlike other Tall Fescues, RTF® Tall Fescue is a self repairing Tall Fescue seed. It is extremely durable, dense and dark green in color and can withstand stressful weather conditions including frost and drought.
RTF® Tall Fescue is recognized as being more drought tolerant than most other species due to it’s deep rooting ability. Once the grass is mature it’s roots can dig as deep as 6 feet, tapping into water underneath the ground not normally available to other varieties and species.
RTF® lawn is best suited to shady conditions, and can struggle in full sun in the summer months, especially if the lawn is planted in late spring/summer. Hence it is imporantant to keep the lawn watered over the summer months in very hot conditions.
We recommend that you plant RTF in Autumn, which allows the roots to develop over winter, resulting in a stronger lawn for the summer.
If water restrictions and local drought conditions cause you to panic about maintaining green grass during the summer months, then RTF® is for you!
