Call for Price

  • Shipping Weight: 50lbs

Hard fescue is a cool-season grass often used in cool-season grass seed mixtures when shade is an expected problem. It does well on low fertility soils and in shaded areas. This species is good as a non-mowed turf for slopes, median strips, and non-used areas of parks. It does not recover well from severe injury. It is not tolerant of high summer temperatures.

Identifying tips
A very fine-bladed grayish to dark-green grass. The leaves are folded in the bud, there are no auricles, and a membranous ligule is present. Hard fescue is a bunch grass with a semi-erect growth habit and heavy roots.

Low maintenance. Hard fescue is often not mowed and can be left un-mowed (it doesn't respond well to close mowing). It has a low fertility requirement and has a high tolerance for drought, shade, and cold temperatures.

Lawns – apply 3-5 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft.
One acre requires 150 – 200 lbs. of seed per acre.
Oveseeding -  Apply ½ the recommended seeding rates.
