This blend is specially designed for the unique conditions found in the northeastern United States where shade, humidity and cooler temperatures are common. This blend contains a mixture of chewings and creeping red fescue with three elite-type Kentucky bluegrass seeds. The benefits of combining these fine fescue type grasses include more shade tolerance, a quick establishment rate and increased drought tolerance. Fescue also requires less fertilizer than other grasses, making it more eco-friendly. The bluegrass provides the dark, brilliant green color, uniformity and traffic tolerance. Together these grasses provide a lush, soft textured lawn perfect for anywhere between Virginia and Ohio, to New York and Maine.
