Over the centuries, fine fescues have been renowned for their survival under extreme conditions. They grow in infertile and dry soils, tolerate close mowing heights, deep shade and grow in places where turf is neglected, tortured and forgotten. In these areas, fescues endure.
Legacy fine fescue grass seed mixture is the perfect solution to those difficult-to-manage turf areas. Legacy blend is hard fescue grass seed, chewings fescue grass seed and creeping red fescue grass seed, specially blended for optimum performance under the highest turf grass management, or planted as a cover for naturalizing low maintenance or native settings.
Hard Fescue Grass
Classic hard fescue performance. Dense, dwarf, dark, compact growth that thrives in low fertility and infrequent irrigation. Extremely high endophyte levels. (approximately 20% of the mixture.)
Chewings Fescue Grass
The most unique advancement in fescue breeding—a true fescue with extraordinary turf quality. Fine textured and low-growing, with very high endophyte levels. (approximately 40% of the mixture.)
Creeping Red Fescue Grass
Extremely high quality turf with high levels of viable endophyte. Excellent soil stabilization through aggressive, rhizomatous growth habit. (approximately 40% of the mixture.)
High Maintenance Turf
Legacy fine fescue grass seed blend is perfect for partly to heavily shaded sites where water and fertilizer conservation is important. Areas with dry shade are perfect for establishing fine fescue grass seed blends in spring or fall.
Native / Naturalized Grass Areas
