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 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.

Thank you to you (Andrew) and your workers for contributing to a successful track upgrade. Your work was of very high standard and much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you at the races, where you can see the track upgrade in use.
Thanks very much for the Sir Walter lawn and thanks for your great service. The whole idea to use Sir Walter was to highlight the tinted windows and sandstone on our new home. I believe I have achieved this. Let alone the easy maintenance going forward.
Sunnyside Instant Lawn provided us with an instant lawn option to complement our modern home. We chose Sir Walter Buffalo that has an intense green colour and its softness suits our children playing outside. It was a pleasure working with Sunnyside Instant Lawn and we would highly recommend them to anyone considering any Instant lawn option.
Just a little note of thanks for arranging the delivery and drop off of lawn. We are busy watering it regularly to keep it looking amazing. Your customer service has been awesome and something of which you should be proud.
A house just isn't a home without lawn, right from my first enquiry with Sunnyside I can not fault their service. I was going to lay the turf myself but at late notice i engaged them to lay it as well. I am so impressed with my Kikuyu lawn and the way it has been installed, it's perfectly finished our new house. The only thing smiling more than us is our dog!
Karrawatta Viticulture and Wines would like to thank Sheridan and the team at Sunnyside Instant Lawn for expanding the lawn area around our office. The quality of service and the product delivery has been second to none. Thanks again Sunnyside!
We would like to thank you for the Sir Walter Buffalo lawn layed during our recent court upgrade. We can now safely accommodate the growing numbers of participants using the facility with increased opportunities to train and play netball day and night all year round.
I am so happy with my Sir Walter Buffalo, it is green, lush and beautiful and has added so much value to my house. I was more than satisfied with the customer service provided by Sheridan & Andrew. I was very impressed with the follow up phone call I received and felt Sunnyside Instant Lawn not only provided me with great turf but they provided me with a very personal, wonderful service.
We couldn’t be more happy with the service and the end result. The Turf Guy, (Jamie) was very accommodating in meeting the needs of our centre and scheduled a time to do the work on a Saturday, ensuring the safety of the children and the families. Lots of families have commented on how amazing the lawn looks…
We are very happy with our Tall Fescue Lawn supplied and layed by Sunnyside Instant Lawn. The advice from Andrew & Sheridan was very professional and we would certainly recommend them.
Sunnyside Instant Lawn recently supplied and line planted approximately 15,000 square metres of turf at the Bordertown Racing Club. During this project, I found Andrew and his team to be very proficient. All work was carried out on time, offering good advice regarding the proper care required to get the grass up and going, they also followed up the progress of the turf after it was planted.
I love my new lawns! I was so impressed with the team's obvious knowledge and thorough manner. They advised the most suited turf type for this area's soil and climate. Their prices were very competitive and they had my windswept wasteland looking verdant and established in the space of a day! The team at Sunnyside Instant Lawn were, at all times, helpful, timely and professional.
Thanks Sunnyside Instant Lawn, our lawn has come up awesome. Great product, great service, great price, what more could you ask for.
Thank you for the great RTF Fescue lawn we bought last week. It has made a huge difference to our house already.
