Turf Saver® RTF®

Rhizomatous Tall Fescue blend

  • Once established, developing an extensive, deep root system
  • Saves 30% water over comparable cool season turf grasses 
  • Great for full sun and partially shaded areas

 

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.

 

Additional Features:

  • Excellent disease resistance and insect tolerance
  • Produces a thick, durable lawn with improved turf density
  • Also available as sod through the RTF Producers Association 
  • Self repairing tall fescue turf 
  • Ideal for many golf course turf applications, including club house grounds
  • 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 
  • Includes Bonfire: a high NTEP ranking tall fescue
  • Quick to establish with very good uniformity and density
  • Strong traffic tolerance — the only self-repairing tall fescue seed mixture available
  • Extensive, deep root system
  • Saves 30% water over other cool season grasses
  • Strong disease resistance and insect tolerance
