MIXTURE:

30% Chewings red fescue

5% hard fescue

 

USAGE: 

Overseeding, divoting and construction of free-draining turf areas.

 

FEATURES & BENEFITS: 

FAIRWAY is an excellent blend of four fine fescue species; hard fescue and three sub-species of red fescue; slender creeping, strong creeping and Chewings. The red fescue cultivars in the mix are all excellent performers and are all top-10 ranked in the BSPB/STRI Turfgrass Seed 2022 booklet.


Of particular note is the outstanding red thread tolerance of Barrisse (#1), an important factor in fairways under low nutrition. Hardtop hard fescue offers superior performance under many stress factors associated
with turf areas that this blend is used for. These include drought, heat, cold and low nutrition.
