Highlander II Tall Fescue is a blend of 3 turf-type fescue varieties mixed with 10% or less of a carefully selected bluegrass to give a beautiful, dense turf. Turf-type fescues have increased in popularity over the years because of their deep root system of 3 to 6 feet that greatly reduces the frequency of watering and fertilizing.
Older varieties, such as the K-31, were wide-bladed bunchgrasses. The new varieties of fescue also have a more appealing color than those older varieties. They have good resistance to disease and insects and perform well in shade or full sun. Our sod fields are seeded with varieties that have slower vertical growth which decreases the frequency of mowing. Great for a lower cost option compared to an RTF lawn.
