Reinders General 30 Lawn Seed Mix will give a satisfactory performance on areas where economy is more important than aesthetics. The annual and perennial ryegrasses provide rapid germination and soil stabilization until the other grasses in the mixture develop. Kentucky Bluegrass produces a well-knit sod and withstands moderate traffic. Creeping Red Fescue provides good ground cover at low maintenance levels and adds shade tolerance to the mixture. This mixture provides a functional ground cover that will persist on a long-term basis and require a minimum of maintenance.
