Selecting new breeds of grasses is designed to conserve natural resources, and is one of the easiest ways to make a positive, long term impact in the landscape. Tall Fescue has been converted by breeders into a low maintenance, drought tolerant turf for mid-continental areas. Tall Fescue conserves on irrigation requirements because of its deep root system. Additionally, breeders have dramatically altered the stature of tall fescue by converting it from a lanky, tall growing forage into a fine textured, low growing turf. By making the species more esthetically acceptable to consumer expectations and combining it with natural adaptive advantages, tall fescue water and nutrient conserving advantages can be extended to even more landscape situations. Additional advantages in disease resistance have further extended the environmental range of this species. Improving cultivars and management strategies have made tall fescue easier to harvest and care for; making it an excellent choice for your personal or commercial lawn.
