Instant Lawn Varieties : RTF - Rhizomatous Tall Fescue

RTF - Rhizomatous Tall Fescue

Rhizomatous Tall Fescue - or RTF Fescue has been handpicked by Lawn Solutions Australia as the best performing Tall Fescue lawn for the cooler regions. Rhizomatous Tall Fescue is exclusive to Lawn Solutions Australia accredited growers.

Rhizomatous Tall Fescue is an evergreen cool season lawn which is suited to both full sun and shaded areas. It prefers a cooler climate with a heavy water retaining soil. RTF Fescue is one of the deepest rooting cool season grasses with a root system reaching two meters and is able to tap into water normally not available.

With its self-repairing rhizome root system RTF Fescue is the only true self-repairing Fescue on the market. RTF Fescue can fill in bare spots in a thinning lawn, minimizing the need for over-seeding. Soft under foot, it produces a lush, thick, even, dark green leaf all year round.

This Tall Fescue will thrive in the family garden, display homes, office buildings, parks and playgrounds or anywhere where a manicured look is required.

RTF Fescue Maintenance

RTF Fescue requires frequent watering as the turf establishes its new roots into the soil. Once established RTF Fescue will use more water than other varieties such as Sir Walter Buffalo, Nullarbor Couch and Eureka Kikuyu. During the warmer months 3-4 waterings per week may be required. Watering frequencies should be adjusted depending on weather conditions and soil types.

A deep root system gives grass access to more nutrients and is essential to having a healthy lawn. Watering for a long, extended periods will ensure there is sufficient moisture for a deep root structure.

RTF Fescue looks best when mown every 7 days at a height of approx. 40-50mm during the warmer months and 30-40mm during the cooler months.

To maintain a healthy RTF Fescue lawn all year round apply a Lawn Solutions Australia recommended fertiliser 3-4 times per year.
