Our No Mow Grass Seed Mix is the solution for a low-maintenance drought tolerant lawn. This is a cool season grass mix, featuring six dwarf fine fescue grasses - Jamestown Chewing Fescue, Quatro Sheep Fescue, Sea Link Slender Fescue, Sword Fescue, Aurora Fescue, and Kent Creeping Fescue.

This specially blended mix of grasses has been formulated to create a lawn with deep fibrous roots; this helps to increase its durability in high traffic areas. Dense, deep roots also create a drought tolerant lawn; No Mow turf typically only needs about 4” of rain per month, requiring little additional irrigation, except during dry spells without summer rains. Left un-mowed, the grass blades create a wonderfully soft, swirling pattern. For a more manicured look, it can be cut once every four to six weeks to a height of 3" to 4". This grass mix can tolerate shade; in summer or anytime the average temperature is above 80°F, it should be kept at 3″ or taller to prevent the ends from rusting or burning.

This mix is suited for a wide range of the United States and is best for regions in the cooler average-rainfall areas of the upper Midwest, northeastern US, and higher elevations of the West (See recommended planting area map in product photos). No Mow is best sown in March through early May, or late August through September. This grass grows best at and around 70°F.
