If you are looking for the best tall fescue variety available look no more. In a recent national turfgrass trial, out of 116 varieties tested, 4th Millennium SRP Turf-Type Tall Fescue scored the highest in overall turf quality. Add to that high scores for establishment, density and texture and the choice is clear. This cool season grass performs well in zones 1-4 but it does exceptionally well in the transition zone (#3). It will also grow in full sun to light shade.
When it comes to choosing a seed variety or mixture there are literally thousands of choices available either through stores or on the internet and as a result, making a decision can be confusing, difficult, and frustrating. As such, we have tried to make the choice easier by elevating the products we offer to a higher standard by developing a “Platinum” lineup of turfgrass varieties and mixtures. The Platinum designation must meet specific standards as they apply to both turf quality and seed quality. By applying these quality standards it limits the products that can be designated as platinum, but as a result it makes the selection process much easier.
