    Turf Saver® RTF® is the most advanced, unique tall fescue blend on the market. Featuring a unique combination of high quality turf-type tall fescues and RTF varieties, Turf Saver RTF is a problem solver. Providing the benefits of rhizomes not found in any other tall fescue varieties, Turf Saver RTF has the ability to mend damaged turf and maintain both uniformity and density. Deep rooted and heat tolerant, Turf Saver RTF provides the rhizomes while other 'spreading' varieties promise only 'potential', 'aggressive tillering', and 'maybe'.


    Ideally suited for low-impact sports turf, park and recreational turf, and those fields with limited irrigation.
