Turf production in shade is a significant challenge. Most plants need sunlight and even the components of Ultra Shadegrass, while tolerant to reduced light, still have a minimum requirement to carry on photosynthesis. The grasses included in Ultra Shadegrass will produce a dominant Fescue turf. This sward will consist of fine, bristle- like leaves that can become very dense. Generally, a series of seedings over 2 – 5 years may be necessary to obtain satisfactory results and an acceptable turf. Mow at a higher cutting height for best results.
