Chantilly Creeping Red Fescue
Wear tolerant, winter hardy and high turf quality
The Science is in the Seed. Growing lush, green turf with the “wrong” seed is like growing an apple tree from pumpkin seed – no amount of effort will give you the desired result. Earth Carpet® brings a revolutionary approach from years cultivating the right seeds for the right conditions.
Three grasses go under the common name of fine fescue: chewings fescue, creeping red fescue and hard fescue. All survive extreme cold and combine well with other cool season grasses. None of the fine fescues tolerate wear and tear, but they have the unusual talent of being able to grow in dry shade. Hard fescue has a strong bunching habit that makes it appear less refined than other lawn grasses, but will persist in difficult sites that are unusually cold, windy and dry.
Turf-Type Tall Fescue
Tall fescue is a cool season grass, well adapted to sunny or partially shady areas. When densely sown, a pure stand forms a moderate to coarse-textured lawn that is uniform in appearance with good weed and disease resistance. Tall fescue tolerates warm summer temperatures and stays green during cool, but not severe winter conditions. Tall fescue is a good species to plant for general lawn use.
