The Fescue seeds are no different from those in our other "No Mow" turf mix. Both contain a specially designed blend of six low- growing Fine Fescue turf grasses, which will: Grow to form a dense turf, Thrive in full sun or partial shade, Require little if any watering or fertilizing, Biologically reduce weed growth, once established, Require limited mowing, usually only once or twice a year, Reduce your lawn maintenance dramatically. ~Prairie Nursery in Westfield, WI
