Turf Alive!® III Brand Grass Seed Grows slower, stays shorter!
Turf Alive III Brand grass seed mixture needs less mowing because it grows slower and stays shorter than other tall fescues. It needs much less watering and weeding than bluegrass lawns! And it’s tough! Our two Turf Alive! Brand lawn seed mixtures have so many advantages, we don’t know why anyone would want to use any other kind!
- Resists drought! Roots reach down 2-4 feet, drawing moisture from the subsoil long after shallow-rooted bluegrass has dried up and gone dormant. Stays lush green with little watering, even in the summer heat.
- Resists common lawn bugs! Microorganisms called endophytes live in certain varieties of grass seed, including Turf Alive! Brand. Scientists believe these endophytes produce alkaloids that are toxic to grass-eating insects, such as sod webworms, cutworms, aphids, and even chinch bugs!
- Eliminates thatch! The deep roots of Turf Alive! Brand grass resists the development of thatch, which fosters disease and harbors insects.
- Chokes out weeds! The deep roots of Turf Alive! Brand grass supports thicker and more vigorous top growth than bluegrass and crowd out weeds.
- Stays out of flower beds! It doesn’t spread by root runners as bluegrass does, so it won’t invade gardens and flower beds.
- It needs less nitrogen, saves money! With only 50% to 66% of the nitrogen needed by bluegrass, Turf Alive! The brand produces an attractive, lush green lawn. Your fertilizer goes further, and that saves you money!
Only from gardens alive!
Turf Alive! III Brand grass sprouts and establishes itself fast. But once established, it grows slowly–so you may need to mow it only half as often as our original Turf Alive! Compared to our original mix, Turf Alive! III stays nice and green much longer in summer than bluegrass does. The seed carries beneficial endophytes, which are toxic to chinch bugs, cutworms, and other lawn pests. Turf Alive! III also has superior resistance to leaf spot and brown patch.
It’s also highly tolerant of frost, winter freezes, heat, and drought. Grows very well in sun to medium shade in temperate areas of the U.S. Seed new lawns and a bare spot at 6lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft.
