Trinity Select Shade Mix
Our Select Shade Mix is an elite mixture of fine fescue seed (85%) with 10% kentucky bluegrass, and 5% perennial ryegrass.
As its name implies, Select Shade Mix is designed to perform well in shaded areas. Fine fescues are well known for their survival under extreme growing conditions. They are cool season, fine bladed, and low growing grasses that have low fertility and maintenance requirements compared to other cool season grasses.
Creeping Red Fescue (approx. 35% of the mix) is a high quality turf with excellent soil stabilization qualities due to rhizomatous growth and adaptability to varying soil types and pH ranges. Chewings Fescue (approx. 30% of the mix) is known for fine leaf texture, shade and drought tolerance. It is an aggressive bunch-type fine fescue. Hard Fescue (approx. 20% of the mix) is dense, dwarf, and compact. It thrives with little fertility and easily tolerates shade and drought.
