Fescue....Toughest Lawns in Omaha
Homeowners that place low maintenance at top of their priority list should choose some of the excellent new turf fescues now
available. Bullseye® and Raptor2® have developed a reputation for maintaining a
dark green color and low growth canopy.
Falcon4® and Overtime® show improved disease resistance along with dark color, root
strength and durability. These seed varieties are significant advances over early coarse fescue types.
Overtime®: is the top quality hardy fescue blend specifically mixed for Omaha.
Fescue varieties are chosen for color, wear, heat and drought tolerance. Overtime® is blended and tested
to be free of noxious weeds. Weed contamination routinely found in coarse fescue blends is never found in Overtime®.
Overtime Plus®: The latest advance in turf
fescue genetics is Overtime Plus® mixed with a heat tolerant bluegrass. This combination provides a turf
with all the benefits of Overtime® fescue as well as the healing and thickening characteristics of bluegrass.
When choosing a grass seed mix, read the label carefully. Avoid mixes that contain course bladed varieties K-31 pasture fescue and
other coarse fescue types. In our area, K-31 is a special problem. By itself, it is a coarse bladed grass best suited for
pastures and landfills..
