Product Overview

Kentucky 31 tall fescue grass seed is a low maintenance seed designed for tough conditions. The lawn seed is climate tolerant and weed and disease resistant. For planting the tall fescue, the soil should be loosened using a power rake or garden rake. At this time a non-burning fertilizer can be mixed into the soil according to the manufacturers' instructions. Typically, a soil test is conducted to determine your fertilizer needs.

The tall fescue seed should be kept moist with with a fine spray of water until normal germination takes place. Germination takes approximately two weeks. Heavier, less frequent water is adequate as the grass begins to grow. The optimal mowing height is 2-1/2 to 3 inches. This mowing height helps the grass retain water during dry conditions and shade weeds before they take root.
