Turf-type tall fescue is becoming a popular turfgrass for homes and industrial sites. Turf-types are more coarse than bluegrass, though not as thick as traditional tall fescue commonly used as pasture grasses. The fescue is a bunch type grass, as opposed to the rhizomatic growth of bluegrass. Newer cultivars have the same rich green color as bluegrass.
Tall fescue is more drought-resistant than many other lawn kinds of grass such as bluegrass or perennial ryegrass because roots penetrate deeper into the soil.
Tall fescues are also more disease resistant and wear tolerant, making them ideal for heavy foot traffic areas and athletic fields. Like bluegrass, they are considered a cool-season grass, remaining green for eight to nine months out of the year.
Tall fescues must remain dense to keep blades thin. Proper mowing and fertilizing practices help keep blades thin; overseeding every other year may be necessary to improve the stand.
A coarse-textured medium to dark-green grass. Leaves are rolled in the bud. It has short, rounded auricles, a short embranous ligule, and an extensive root system. Because tall fescue has a bunch-type growth habit rather than a creeping-type, open areas may develop
and need to be reseeded.
