Reinders Deluxe 50 Lawn Seed Mix is formulated for areas where a predominant bluegrass turf is desired, yet where minimum maintenance is desired. Deluxe 50 will persist on non-irrigated sites that have wide variations in environmental conditions. Wicked and Fiesta 4 Perennial Ryegrass provide a quick ground cover and soil stabilization with quality and disease resistance that is vastly superior to unimproved perennial ryegrasses. The sod quality Kentucky Bluegrass and the named variety of Kentucky Bluegrass produce a well-knit sod and withstand moderately heavy traffic. Creeping Red Fescue provides shade tolerance, low fertility persistence and drought tolerance and disease resistance. This mixture combines good quality turf and longterm persistence with moderate maintenance requirements, making this a good grass seed choice.
Deluxe 50 will achieve adequate density and a medium dark green color with two to three fertilizations per season. It will do well under lower fertility programs, but to achieve a higher quality turf an increased fertility program is needed. A mowing height of 2-3" is recommended for maximum drought tolerance and weed resistance. This mixture should not be mowed below 1-1/2".
