About Tall Fescue

Festuca arundinacea is a species of grass commonly known as tall fescue. It is a cool-season perennial species of bunchgrass native to Europe. Established tall fescue lawns are low maintenance and need infrequent mowing and watering, except in very hot summers.

Keep the lawn at 2 inches tall and allow the plants to dry out in between deep watering.
