TUFF TURF Lawn Seed Mixture® is a combination of improved turf-type Tall Fescues with Perennial Ryegrass and Kentucky Bluegrass. This mixture has excellent drought tolerance, wear tolerance, and will perform nicely in a variety of soil conditions. Tuff Turf will adapt to full sun to reasonably heavy shade conditions. It is best used where budgets dictate that input levels are low and in fact low levels of input are preferred. This mixture is proudly approved by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance.
What is an Endophyte and what does it do?
An endophyte is a fungus within the cells of turf-type fescues and perennial ryegrass. Endophytes produce alkaloids that deter animals or insects from feeding on the plant. For this reason, Tuff Turf Seed Mixture® has been an ideal option where bird populations are unsafe or undesirable, such as airports or vulnerable lakeside areas. Although this turfgrass mixture is already drought and heat tolerant, endophytes may enhance these characteristics.
