Barenbrug's Wildfire Tall fescue blend was created to combat the harsh environments we face today; giving turf managers and/or owners a tool to fight the dynamic stresses they face on an annual basis.
Wildfire embodies the mission of the Alliance for Low Input Sustainable Turf by benefiting the environment through requiring less water, fertilizer, chemicals, and pesticides. Varieties in the blend are disease resistant with high turf quality throughout the country, have good drought tolerance, and can take a beating better than most Tall fescues. Combining these traits with its good scores under lower mowing heights of 1.5" (3.8 cm), Wildfire has the potential to spread across the States as the envy of the block, a country club show stopper, and provide a safer, more sustainable alternative to synthetic turf fields.
