The Fine Fescue's are the most shade tolerant of any lawn grass. Although several new bluegrasses produce improved quality turf in the shade, they do not compare to the the fine fescue's. For lawns that are entirely shaded, blends of the fine fescue's are recommended.

Low Maintenance: The Fine Fescue's require less fertilizer and moisture than any of the lawn grasses adapted to the cool or Northern regions of the United States. Thus they have the lowest overall maintenance requirements. They are well adapted to poor, sandy soils of low fertility and will tolerate soil acidity within the pH range of 5.0 to 6.5. Fine Fescue's thrive where topsoil is thin or where previous farm or landscape practices created acid soils. Drought tolerance and ease of entry into and recovery from summer dormancy are features of the Fine Fescue's. They are ideally adapted to the cool humid region.

 

Pros Cons
Shade Tolerant (Up to 65% shade) Slower to germinate (14-21 days)
Low Maintenance (require little watering or fertilizer) Not durable to heavy traffic
Very Winter Hardy
Blends well wih blue grass in mixes
