Maybe you’ve tried maintaining a bluegrass or ryegrass lawn but experienced issues with irrigation, limited sunlight, and poor soil quality. Or perhaps you’re interested in creating a low-water use and more naturalized landscape. 

We understand these needs and are proud to introduce our Fine Fescue grass seed mix, which combines four low-growing fine fescues: Hard Fescue, Sheep Fescue, Chewings Fescue, and Creeping Red Fescue. 

Together, these cool-season grasses can tolerate lower temperatures, require less water, and are more shade tolerant than traditional home lawns. They are also highly adaptable to poor soil conditions and need little fertilizer. Learn more about our fine fescue grass seed below.

We’re proud of our Fine Fescue Seed Mix because it’s carefully formulated to help your lawn grow in all conditions.

Fine fescue grass seed thrives in cooler climates and tolerates very low temperatures. This makes it perfect for use in the northern states from northern California stretching east all the way to Illinois and New York.

Although these seeds are all fescues, they have unique characteristics that work well together and create an immaculate fine fescue lawn. Let’s break down the ins and outs of how each of these fescues can help you create a full and beautiful cool-season lawn:

  • Hard Fescue grass seed is slow-growing and highly tolerant. In fact, the Hard Fescue performance is why it’s a natural favorite: It grows well in shaded areas and poor soil, making it a great addition to any lawn — especially those with bare spots.
  • Sheep Fescue grows in bunches. As a crawling grass, Sheep Fescue quickly covers large spaces and helps your lawn look perfectly green. It also has a dense root system, making it an excellent species for soil erosion control.
  • Chewings Fescue grass seed differs from the other fescues in this seed blend because it’s the only one that doesn’t crawl. Chewings Fescue is also a little more sensitive to foot traffic, but it offers softer grass and resiliency to grow on sandy soil!
  • Creeping Red Fescue is the final addition to our Fine Fescue Seed Mix. As the perfect sod-forming fescue, the Creeping Red is great for tying in all these different seeds and creating a beautiful lawn that gives you the coverage you crave with a comfortable, soft touch perfect for children and pets.


Is the Fine Fescue Grass Seed Mix Right for You?

Fine Fescue Seed Mix is an excellent option for most people. We say that because some regions and conditions are not great matches with our fescue blend. So while you might love the potential of using this seed mix for your lawn, be sure that your property can tolerate it and help it thrive.

Consideration #1: Where Do You Live?

Where you live in the country is an enormous indicator of whether or not this seed mixture will work for you. If you live north of the Mason-Dixon line, you’re in luck.

Our Fine Fescue Seed Mix is a combination of cool-season grass, meaning it thrives in the cooler climates of the country. This means if you plant this seed blend in Texas, Florida, or Southern California, the grass won’t survive because of the infertile and dry soils.


Consideration #2: What’s Your Watering Schedule?

Unlike other grass seeds, the Fine Fescue Seed Mix has excellent water and fertilizer conservation and thus requires infrequent irrigation. That means this seed blend is perfect whether you’re under a water ban or don’t have the time to water your lawn daily.


Consideration #3: What’s Your Purpose?

Although it might sound like a strange question, it’s necessary: Why are you growing or overseeding your lawn?

The Fine Fescue seed mix is perfect for erosion control because of the sod-forming and crawling fescues. The rhizomatous growth habit provides extraordinary turf quality. This seed blend is your best bet if you need to fill patches of dried grass and heavily shaded sites or reduce erosion!

Grass seed fescue mix is the perfect solution for the highest turf grass management because it can tolerate close mowing heights while offering excellent soil stabilization. So whether your grass seed is in deep shade or partial shade, you can count on it to grow.
