A cool season grass recommended for Adelaide Hills and South East areas where the climate is cooler and rainfall is higher.
Developed by turf scientists at the Barenbrug Research Facility, Lawn Solutions Australia’s RTF lawn is a superior tall fescue variety that is a deep-rooting, thick, lush, cool season grass with tolerance to heat and dry conditions. As a superior cool climate tall fescue, it also is the perfect shade tolerant turf as they both go hand-in-hand.
RTF Tall Fescue has the highest winter -colour retention of virtually all turf types available in Australia. It is a deep rooting cool season grass with roots that can travel up to 2 metres underground. It can access water not normally available and therefore performs better then any other cool season grass during our hot S.A summers.
With its self repairing rhizome root system, RTF fills bare spots in a thinning lawn, thereby minimising over-seeding.
RTF - Or Rhizomatous Tall Fescue is the only true self-repairing fescue on the market. Rhizomes can send out new roots and shoots, allowing new plants to propagate and therefore helping thinning patches in your lawn revitalise themselves.
RTF is suitable in full sun areas and can handle up to 70% of the day in shade.
Year Round Colour
RTF Tall Fescue won't go dormant through winter and therefore holds a lush deep green colour all year round. Due to its preference for cooler weather, RTF does require around 20% more water than other varieties through Summer.
As a cool season lawn, RTF Tall Fescue is active through winter, meaning you can enjoy a lush green lawn, all year round! This does also mean it requires year round maintenance such as mowing, fertilising and watering.
