    RTF® Sod is the most advanced, unique tall fescue sod blend on the market. Featuring a unique combination of high quality turf-type tall fescues and RTF varieties, RTF Sod is a problem solver.


    Providing the benefits of rhizomes not found in any other tall fescue varieties, RTF Sod has the ability to mend damaged turf and maintain both uniformity and density. Deep rooted and heat tolerant, RTF Sod provides the rhizomes while other 'spreading' varieties promise only 'potential', 'aggressive tillering', and 'maybe'.


    Ideally suited for traditional tall fescue uses, including low-impact sports turf, park and recreational turf, and those fields with limited irrigation.
