fine fescue

Attractive, dense, and low-water management.

Fine fescues are narrow-leaved, lower height species that thrive in shade and persist under low fertility and little to no irrigation management. Chewings types form a dense attractive turf, typically in combination with bluegrasses and ryegrasses.

Hard fescues are generally more disease resistant and particularly useful in soil erosion control on sloped areas. The strong creeping types are more rhizomatous with a more open growth style. Their applications vary from slopes to shaded fine turf to unmown stands in hillsides and golf course roughs.
