Creeping Red Fescue Grass Seed


Creeping Red Fescue Grass Seed

Creeping red fescue grass seed is a great seed option for shaded or low moisture areas. It has a deep root system allowing it to more drought tolerant compared to other grasses. It can tolerate moderate shade, making it a good choice for areas with partial to full shade shade. Creeping red fescue is known for its low maintenance requirements, once established. It has good resistance to pests and diseases. Its dense, creeping growth habit helps to prevent soil erosion on slopes and banks. It is often used in mixtures with other grasses for lawns, parks, and sports fields, providing a fine texture and lush appearance. Creeping red fescue is a finer blade and often used with a tall fescue variety for a rich, full lawn.
