A fine leaved turfgrass creating a superb and versatile surface for golf, bowling greens and ornamental landscapes.

Characteristics

Masters 100% Fescue gives a dense, consistent sward, with the fineness of leaf expected of a high quality turfgrass. Slender creeping red fescue has a good colour during the summer, autumn and early winter. It also has excellent salt tolerance and a rhizomatous growth habit. Chewings fescue has better colour during late winter and spring. Combining the two subspecies provides better colour for longer hence why the two grasses are chosen together.

Typical seed mixtures

  • 25% Barcrown - slender creeping red fescue - festuca rubra litoralis
  • 25% Viktorka - slender creeping red fescue - festuca rubra litoralis
  • 25% Bargreen II - chewings fescue - festuca rubra commutate
  • 25% Barswing - chewings fescue - festuca rubra commutate

Mowing

Fescues can be mown as low as 5mm with a well adjusted cylinder mower. For greens we recommend 5-8mm. For tees we recommend 10-12mm. In general, the longer the grass, the better the turf can cope with wear and tear. For bunker tops this turf is often left to grow without mowing to achieve a more natural festuca look.

Nutrition

100% Fescue can survive happily on low fertiliser regimes and usually requires a maximum of 150kg Nitrogen per ha per year. This can be provided by two applications of fertiliser - one in the spring and one in the autumn - April & September. Slow release and organic fertilisers are recommended.
