T.L.C. Tall Fescue Blend


T.L.C. Tall Fescue Blend


Key Features:

  • Genetic Diversification – specially formulated to combine the strengths and benefits of differing tall fescue genetics. The diversity of the varieties isn’t necessarily visible, but acts more as an insurance policy against disease and other pressures.
  • Grows in both Sun and Shade – Shade tolerance is an important feature, especially for areas with mature landscape or near buildings where turf is desired on the shady side. Titan Rx also has exceptional shade tolerance. In national turf trials conducted from 2006-2011, Titan Rx demonstrated that it could take shade better than most all other tall fescues. Out of 113 entries, including many popular varieties, Titan Rx had the second highest score!
  • Heat Tolerant – It’s one thing to have a very hot day. It’s another thing to have a stretch of days where both daytime and nighttime temperatures are oppressive. Cool season grasses, like tall fescue, do not perform well in these situations. In order to survive, they must protect themselves. All energy is put into survival. Shallow-rooted species and weaker varieties simply don’t make it.  Titan Rx is different. While still a cool-season variety, Titan Rx finds a way to survive, so that when the hot spell is over, there are more plants left in the stand to regrow. And thanks to its self-repairing rhizomes and aggressive tillers, there is even more chance that bare spots will naturally fill in.
  • Rhizomes and Recovery – The Titans have a reputation similar to what Timex ® had with its classic watches. They can “take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’!” There’s some genetic qualities that simply make these grasses get back up and live when others varieties either die or take longer to recover from damage. Whether that damage comes from hard play, intense disease pressure, pets, drought, cold, or other sources, there’s a good chance that your Titan lawn will come out looking good.
  • Disease Resistant – Each of the varieties in T.L.C. have improved disease resistance against many diseases including brown patch, red thread, and rust. And since T.L.C. includes the Titan genetic, T.L.C. has great come-back ability.
  • Great Color – T.L.C. Tall Fescue looks great! Its rich, medium-dark green color makes it perfect for new lawns, and for overseeding existing lawns. Not too light and not too dark – just right!
  • Dense and Upright – T.L.C. Tall Fescue Blend provides high density, helping reduce weed infestation and promote upright attractive turf, due in part to its aggressive tillers and self-repairing rhizomes.
  • Deep Roots – T.L.C. Tall Fescue Blend plants go deep! Its extensive and deep root system are keys to survival in the shade as well as in the sun. They also help reduce soil erosion.

This is a special formulation of great-performing and compatible tall fescues that fit together to create a beautiful, yet durable and hardy lawn. It is made with at least one of our Titan varieties and combined only with approved varieties specifically selected to both enhance and compliment the performance of the Titan varieties. With its natural dark-green color and fine-leaved texture, deep roots, natural pest and disease resistance, and self-repairing rhizomes, T. L.C. Tall Fescue Blend should provide you with many years of beauty and durability.

Why a Blend?

There are good scientific arguments validating using blends, as well as using single cultivars. Mostly it is a matter of preference, but the main reason blends are recommended is for genetic diversification. While in many cases the best answer is a single cultivar, every cultivar has its limitations. By adding additional varieties to a plant population, some of the limitations can be overcome. For example, with disease resistance, each cultivar will respond differently to an occurrence of disease. Sometimes a blend may actually better resist a disease collectively than the individual varieties. This is especially true in considering the overall band of potential diseases.

Why T.L.C.?

We are very picky about what goes into our T.L.C. tall fescue blends. We look at the regional performances of specific varieties and how well they will work with our Titan grasses, ensuring that you get a great looking lawn in every bag.
