The lowest maintainence turf grass that's easy on the environment
You may not have heard of Eco Grass before, but in the next few years most cities and towns in areas with dwindling water supplies will be suggesting to their residents to switch over to newer drought tolerance and low maintainance lawns
This low maintenance "No Mow" turf mix is a special blend of 6 types of vigorous fine fescue seeds and some hardy native short grasses, with no high maintainence water loving blue grasses or "filler" low grade grasses like annual rye grass.
This grass blend produces a beautiful lush fine textured turf that is soft to walk on and wears better than sod based lawns. Eco grass will produce just a nice a lawn as Kentucky blue grasses without all the work and chemicals that blue requires to stay lush.
Eco-grass blends are the ultimate low maintenance lawn. This specially designed blend of six or more fine fescue grasses, grows to form a dense turf on loam, well drained clay and even in infertile, dry soils!
Eco-grass thrives in full sun, part shade and even in deep shade conditions!
How can it be so good under all those conditions ? the answer lies in the blend of grasses. In shady areas the species in the mix that like shade dominate and in the sunny areas the other species that like sunnier conditions will thrive.
Our low maintainance grass blends reduces your maintenance time and costs . . . with Eco-grass you don't have to mow, water, fertilize or aerate as often as you do with blur grass lawns. . . saving you time and money and helping to create a healthier environment
Reduce your mowing time or don't mow at all!
Eco-Grass while quick to germinate, is a very slow growing grass that has a fine textured, dense, low-growing habit, so you don't have to mow it if you don't want to! Left unmown, over the course of a full growing season, Eco-grass blades will grow to about 9 inches long, but because the blades of the special Fescues are so fine, it falls over to about a 4 inch height creating Eco-Grass'es gentle, flowing carpet-like appearance. If you prefer a more 'cropped lawn look', occasional mowing will be necessary.
Mow Eco-Grass no more than once a month to a height of 3 to 4 inches for a classic mown lawn look.
Eco-Grass produces grass blades that are very thin and thus don't require the amount of water that typical, thick bladed lawn grasses demand. Eco-Grass also creates roots that grow deep into the ground, so the lawn can seek out needed nutrients and water naturally, thus eliminating the need for watering. Eco-Grass is perfect for areas where water conservation is important and is excellent for establishing new lawns, erosion buffers and bank stabilizations.
No fertilizers or chemicals required!
Eco-Grass, unlike traditional lawn turf grasses, creates a deep root system. It will produce roots up to 9 inches (22.86 cm) deep in hard pan clay soils and up to 14 inches (35.56 cm) deep in sandy soils! These deep root systems enable Eco-Grass to naturally extract the nutrients it requires from the soil so you don't need to add chemical fertilizers!
For new lawns or fix your old existing worn out lawn
This product can be hydroseeded (hydro seeded) or mechanically seeded or oversown (overseeded ) by top dressing with an organic fertilzer-compost-grass seed mixture. When this is done with existing lawns the new more aggressive eco grass fescues will gradually replace the current lawn and change the grass type over to eco grass. This is particularly effective for older worn out lawns and can usually be done in 2 or 3 top dress applications over the span of a year.
