Fescues by Barenbrug

With a very fine leaf texture, low growth characteristics and exceptional density, fine fescues are a common component of shade mixtures, erosion control blends, and low-maintenance turf in golf and landscapes. In cooler, temperate climates, established fine fescue lawns also have good drought tolerance, low fertility requirements and will tolerate full sun. Barenbrug offers all five fine fescue species for use in mixes for landscape, golf, erosion control, un-mowed naturalized areas and low maintenance turf areas; each providing unique benefits to maximize turfgrass sustainability.
