Fine Fescues + Bluegrass

An earth-friendly, turfgrass option using less water and fertilizer. Ecoloturf is a combination of new hybrid fine fescues and bluegrass which are genetically bred for drought tolerance and a beautiful green color. Ideal for “GREEN Building” situations since it requires decreased water, fertilizer and pesticide applications. Ecoloturf has a medium-fine leaf texture, adapts well to shade, tolerates moderate traffic and adapts well to both urban and mountain ecologies.

Maintenance Guide

For the first 20 days, water as needed to keep the topsoil moist to o 3-inch depth. After 20 days, water three or more times o week during worm weather. In cooler weather, water deep, once or twice o week. Sandy soil requires more frequent watering than cloy soil. Slopes and mounds may require more attention due to water run-off. Irrigation may be 30-35 percent less than Bluegrass and Toll fescue.
Apply 7 days after installation and about every two months during the growing season with a SLOW-release fertilizer at full rate as indicated on the bag. Use a 20- l0-5 with 5% Iron. Reduced fertilizer applications assist the ecology!
Mow seven days ofter installation. Mow to o height of 2-1/2 to 3+ inches. Weekly mowing is recommended. Never mow more than one-third of the blade at one time, it may injure the plant.
Ecoloturf is highly resistant to most common diseases that might affect other turfgrass.
After 4 weeks, if needed, one can apply a herbicide for any broadleaf weeds. Contact a garden center if insects ever appear.
