Tall Fescue is perfect for prestigious sites that require a dark green lawn all year round. Use it in show gardens like botanical gardens, buildings of importance or university courtyards.
Best grown in full sun to part shade. Will tolerate up to 70% shade.
It is essential that instant turf is laid on moist soil. Then it’s important to water the turf in soon after laying to prevent it from drying out. Watering should wet the sod and the top 30-50 mm of soil. The turf needs to be kept moist over the first few days after laying. It is advised that you only install Tall Fescue if you have a functioning irrigation system in place.
After the root system is fully established, water thoroughly only when required: Once every 7-10 days during warm or hot summer weather (more often on sandy soils), and much less in cooler months.
Remember that infrequent, deep watering promotes a healthy lawn by encouraging the knitting of the turf sod to the soil. Over-watering can be a problem because it encourages excessive growth, disease and root rot.
Tolerant to many off-the- shelf weed, pest and disease sprays. See manufacturers’ instructions for full details.
