Dense Shade Mix

Dense Shade Mix

It used to be hard to grow grass in the shade. However, new varieties of shade tolerant grass and suitable mowing practice now make it possible to create dense, healthy turf even in relatively dense shade. DENSE SHADE mix is well adapted to areas of 60% or more daily shade in mature landscapes. This mix has low maintenance requirements for water, fertilizer, and lime. It requires 2-3 hours of filtered sunshine per day.

40% Victory Chewings Fescue
35% Mustang II Tall Fescue
15% Spartan Hard Fescue
10% Pennlawn Red Fescue.
