Rhizomatous Tall Fescue Sod (RTF®) looks like bluegrass but requires 25-30% LESS WATER. It has an improved shade tolerance and is approved for use on LEED projects. This is a new type of tall fescue grass that produces rhizomes – which allows the sod to perennate. RTF® initiates new grass growth underneath the soil, which allows the sod to fill in bare spots and repair itself.

-Improved growth in sun and shade
-Drought and heat tolerant – keeps a rich green colour
