Although many improved cultivars have proven to be heat and drought tolerant, Tall Fescue is considered a cool-season grass that has become a very popular turf grass. The cooler temperatures the last few mornings have brought some Fescue lovers out of the woodwork, but the BEST TIME to plant Fescue is mid-September through mid-October. Many people are buying their seed now in preparation and in a few weeks, Easton Sod will once again begin keeping Fescue in stock at our stores. But, please be patient as we have some more days of extreme summer heat on the horizon! It’s better to wait to plant your Fescue sod and/or seed during the Fall to maximize good performance and growth.
