Adaptations and Use
SR 3150 hard fescue is a versatile grass that will help reduce maintenance costs whether planted in a monostand or a mix. Its dwarfed growth habit reduces the number and frequency of mowings and reduces clipping yields. In low maintenance areas it forms an attractive, dark green, dense turf requiring minimal water and fertilization in both sun and shade. This makes SR 3150 ideal for use on golf course slopes and bunkers as well as in parks, roadsides and reclamation areas. It is also ideal for the homeowner who desires quality turf with reduced maintenance. In addition, SR 3150 can be mixed with improved Kentucky bluegrasses, perennial ryegrasses, and Chewings fescues for a high quality lawn mix.
