Notes on Proprietary Fine Fescues

Mixing fine fescues for shade tolerance is recommended by the Turf Department at Rutgers University. Fine Fescue varieties in Execu-Turf® Mixes and Blends are very shade-tolerant and very attractive. Varieties in Premium Shade provide excellent turf quality and much-improved disease resistance versus "low-end" or "common" varieties. Proprietary Fine Fescues used in Premium Shade also exhibit improved traffic tolerance.
