This is the lawn alternative for dog owners and Parks & Rec departments. Tall fescue provides high salt tolerance and rhizomatous ‘self-repairing’ growth patterns to counter effects of pet urine. Naturally nitrogen-fixing clover and a bit of vigorous perennial ryegrass round out the mix. Wear and drought-tolerant. Dappled shade to full sun. A great choice for any high traffic area where drought tolerance and RTF attributes are desired (no dog required). To obtain some ecolawn benefits, overseed with Dog Park onto existing tall fescue lawns.
