It is the first elite bluegrass to excel at all maintenance levels, scoring high in trials for unirrigated, low maintenance lawns while also scoring in the top for close‐mow tolerance, summer density, fall color, and turf quality in the Northeast region.

Having been planted on over 100,000 acres of turf in over 20 countries, you can have confidence that Award will perform for you. According to unbiased test results, Award is top rated in spring density and ground cover, late fall (December) color and ground coverage, traffic and wear tolerance, Transition Zone endurance, shade tolerance, fewest seedheads in the turf, and fastest sod lifting (stretch resistance).


Pest Resistant:
