NZLS Turfpro Tall Fescue does not require a lot of maintenance although more care usually means a better lawn.

The best time for sowing a lawn or for laying turf is Spring or Autumn.Spring because the soil temperatures are on the rise and the increased sunshine hours help promote germination.
There is still plenty of natural moisture and the sun doesn’t generally have the burning temperatures of high summer.
Autumn is suitable as well because, again the ground temperature is warm, plenty of rain and by the time that the grass is becoming established the sun is a little cooler and this reduces the risk of drying out and scorching of the fresh new grass.
NZLS Turfpro Tall Fescue is a very popular lawn grass in the USA and cooler areas of Australia. Being a very deep rooting variety makes it the most drought tolerant of all “cool season” grasses.
