07 Jun Here’s How To Successfully Maintain Your Fine Fescue Blend Turf
Fine fescue blend turf is known for its fine texture, lush appearance, and excellent shade tolerance. Here at Australian Seed & Turf, our standard Fine Fescue Blend is a highly versatile turf option that is available throughout the year. Additionally, our turf is grown without netting inside the sod, making it easier to maintain after establishment.
When mowing your Fine Fescue Blend turf, it’s important to maintain a higher cutting height compared to other grass varieties. Aim for a height of around 7 – 10 centimetres. This higher cutting height allows the fine fescue grasses to develop strong root systems, increases their shade tolerance and helps to suppress weed growth.
Fine fescue blend turf has good drought tolerance, but proper watering is still crucial. Water deeply and infrequently to encourage deep root growth and drought resistance. Apply enough water to moisten the soil to a depth of about 15 centimetres. This encourages the roots to grow deeper into the soil, making your turf more resilient to dry periods.
Regular fertilisation is important to keep your Fine Fescue Blend turf healthy. Apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser according to the recommended schedule for your specific turf. This helps to provide the necessary nutrients for strong growth and vibrant colour.
Our team at Australian Seed & Turf also offer the service of consignment growing of Fine Fescue as a blend or as a straight variety for clients. Contact us so we can help you grow your Fine Fescue depending on your specifications.
