FEATURES & BENEFITS:

Central to the product is a large proportion of hard fescue, a fine fescue species with well-documented tolerance to drought and heat stress and proven performance with low-input maintenance, as well as outstanding overall turf quality for density and visual merit, helping to maintain good aesthetics in the harshest environments.


Beacon is a newer variety of hard fescue, now listed on Table L6 with a mean score of 6.9*. Its performance on the GEVES list in France, #1 rated for a range of traits, including “lawn index”, “shoot density”, “fineness of leaves” and “global aesthetic quality”, is of particular relevance to this product.


In trials at Landlab in Italy, Hardtop hard fescue and Barjessica strong creeping red fescue perform particularly well in periods of heat and drought.
