Rhizomatous Tall Fescue blend

  • Self repairing tall fescue turf

    Turf Saver® RTF® is the most advanced and unique tall fescue blend available, providing the benefits of rhizomes not found in any other varieties.  While other spreading varieties describe “potential” rhizome development or “aggressive tillering,” the deep-rooted and heat-tolerant Turf Saver RTF has been proven to mend damaged turf and maintain both uniformity and density.

     

    • A blend featuring 40% RTF varieties combined with two high quality turf-type tall fescues
    • Including BarRobusto: a dark green tall fescue with high brown patch resistance and is certified for above average drought tolerance, compared to fellow turf-type tall fescues, by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance 
    • Soon to include Thor: a high NTEP ranking tall fescue from Columbia Seeds' quality portfolio

    • Strong traffic tolerance — the only self-repairing tall fescue seed mixture available
