RTF Tall Fescue - sold by the square foot
FREE SHIPPING on orders of 1200 square feet or more*


Rhizomatous Tall Fescue (RTF©) is an advanced generation of turf-type tall fescue which produces rhizomes. A rhizome is an underground stem that penetrates laterally through the soil to spread the plant. Rhizomes send shoots up to the soil surface while extending new roots downward, forming a new plant. The rhizomatous nature of RTF is similar to Kentucky bluegrass. However, unlike Kentucky bluegrass RTF will survive the transition zone climate and other tall fescue turf regions.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

Self-repairing Turf

  • Quickly fills in damaged or open spots with new shoots of grass
  • High level of traffic tolerance
  • Dense turf without open areas prevents weed growth

Strong, deep root system and drought tolerance

  • Rapid development of a deep root system
  • Excellent drought and heat tolerance with less irrigation
  • Adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions

Grows great in sun or shade

  • Excellent in the transition zone climate and other tall fescue turf regions
  • Will not brown out in the intense summer heat
  • One of the most shade tolerant cool season grasses

Excellent color and density

  • Has fine leaves which produce a very dense, uniform sod
  • Early spring greenup
  • Withstands stressful hot temperatures and keeps its rich green color

Excellent insect and disease resistance

  • Endophyte enhanced for improved insect, disease and drought tolerance
  • Environmentally friendly, reduces chemical and fertilizer inputs

Improved value for the turf professional

  • RTF sod requires less overseeding, has fewer weed problems and prevents "wide-leafed ugly clumps" of tall fescue plants
  • Young plants first build the root and shoot system; then concentrate on producing rhizomes. With RTF sod, the rhizomes are already developed
  • RTF sod, with the aid of rhizomes anchors itself faster, water requirements are reduced and turf can be used sooner
