Make way for Jacklin Seed’s NEW NoNet® spreading tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea). NoNet was developed over 10 years to insure that its rhizomatous spreading trait reaches the end user along with the improved turf characteristics you expect from a Jacklin variety.


NoNet is aimed at eliminating the costly nylon netting used in commercial sod production of bunch-type tall fescue. Netting is a hassle for the sod producer to purchase and install and it is a hazard for sports fields where player’s cleats can catch on the net for years to come.


In trials, NoNet’s increased rhizomes and spreading ability enable quick establishment. With the ability to repair damaged turf, NoNet is a good choice for areas with traffic such as sports fields.


Improved Quality

NoNet characteristics include superior density, dark color, fine leaf texture and improved crown density.



NoNet is adaptable to different management regimes - high, medium and low; including cutting heights of 1 to 3 inches (2.5-7.5 cm), with great performance at 2 inches (5 cm).


Areas of Use

NoNet is an excellent choice for use on home lawns, parks, athletic fields, golf course roughs or out-of-play areas and community green spaces.
