Fescue Grass vs brown grassFall in Love with Fescue

Georgia’s wooded neighborhoods and mountain hideaways provide much needed shade from the blistering summer heat. They also lend a sweet, comforting feel to any home, with unmatched curb appeal as fall’s colors burst on the scene. However, growing Bermuda grass in heavily wooded areas can be a challenge, because it thrives in sunny conditions. And while Bermuda is excellent for hot, dry summers, when the cool chill of autumn arrives this grass variety goes dormant, leaving perfectly manicured yards looking dull. Fescue is different. It’s a cool season grass variety that keeps its rich, green color all year long.

The Flexibility of Fescue

Tall Fescue is grown from seed and is known for its versatility and heartiness. It can take a lot of wear and tear that you often get with kids and pets. Fescue grows well in the sun, but also can handle a great deal of shade, so enjoy your trees as well as your verdant green grass.

Blades of Glory

Tall Fescue also requires less mowing, so you can spend more time enjoying your yard. This medium-blade grass thrives at two to three-inch heights; in fact, those long blades help hold in moisture throughout the fall and winter. In the summer, Fescue does require deep watering, but in the fall you can pull back on the frequency, especially if Mother Nature provides consistent rain.

Premium Sod with Deep Roots

Rebel® Supreme Fescue boasts a dense root system that holds moisture in, which is beneficial during dry spells or even prolonged droughts. NG Turf harvests Fescue every day, all year long. Find out if it’s right for you.
