EzySNIP presents “The 5th Variety of lawn in Australia”

  • Ian.G 

Our 5th and last post on grasses, we will finish up by looking at Tall Fescue.

Tall Fescue is a popular choice for “instant lawns”, which are when pre-grown grass is rolled out on top of soil or pre-existing grass. It’s an incredibly indiscriminate type of grass, being equally happy in sun or shade, and being able to adapt to a wide range of soil conditions and climates. And the cherry on top is the fact that Tall Fescue has no runners, which means that it can’t invade surrounding garden beds or your neighbour’s yard.⠀

Tall Fescue can cope with moderate levels of traffic, being relatively hardy and durable. However it’s not quite as durable as other grasses on this list, such as Zoysia and Kikuyu.⠀

When it comes down to it, you should pick a grass type based on what will work best with your yard. Take the levels of traffic and sunlight into account first, as they are arguably the most important factors to consider when deciding.⠀
