This type of lawn is an option worth considering because, once well established, it requires less fertilization and watering.

The presence of fine fescues in the mix can help prevent infestations of white grubs.

Description

  • Mix of several varieties of TWCA- and/or A-LIST-certified fine fescues and Kentucky bluegrass
  •  Perfect for your eco-responsible projects or to obtain LEED points
  • Native varieties and/or adapted to our climate
  • Significant biodiversity
  •  Does not need a lot of watering once well established
  •  TWCA and/or A-LIST-certified cultivars requiring up to 50% less water once well established
  •  It takes longer for fescues to enter into dormancy during periods of drought
    • The presence of fescues
    • May mean less fertilization and mowing
    • May help keep white grubs away
    • Supports moderate foot traffic
    • The use of endophytic seeds helps the lawn cope with stresses such as drought, disease and bugs. 


Additional information

  • Ideal for your no-watering projects (once well established)

  • Made up of cultivars that will more quickly regain their vitality and green colour after a period of drought. The dormancy period is therefore reduced.
  • Even though dormancy is an excellent plant survival method, it makes the plants more susceptible to stress. A shorter dormancy period reduces the risk of weed infestation and sensitivity to foot traffic.
  • A lawn with a shorter dormancy period will result in greater photosynthesis, thus more effectively decreasing the ‘heat island’ effect.
  • Reduced water and input requirements make this grass a more environmentally-friendly option.
