Reinders No Mow / Low Grow Seed Mix is a new blend developed for hard to mow areas or those areas where minimal up keep is desirable. Composed of Spartan II Hard Fescue, Quatro Sheep Fescue and Turf Type Annual Rye Grass, this blend needs to be irrigated only during germination (7 to 10 days), with a small amount of fertilizer at seeding. After it is established, it will require no fertilizer or irrigation. If unmowed, grass will grow to about a foot in height and bend over. If mowed, it should be cut at four inches occasionally. If unmowed, wild flowers could be seeded at the rate of 1/4 -1/2" /2,500 SQ FT (4 to 6 LBS/ACRE). Spartan II hard fescue comprises 45% of this mix. Spartan II is a tough, vigorous and hardy variety that has good drought tolerance, excellent shade tolerance, and excellent cold tolerance. Spartan II is dark colored and fine-textured and will germinate in seven to ten days at soil temperatures over 65°. Quatro sheep fescue has a very fine leaf texture and moderately dark blue-green color. It is outstanding for its low maintenance needs and slow growth rates. Turf Type Annual Ryegrass is a superior cultivar, which is quick starting with a slow rate of growth, but provides high turf quality and acts as a nursegrass for quick establishment.
No Mow / Low Grow Seed Mix is ideal for areas that will not be mowed regularly and will not need any special irrigation or fertilizer.
Mow once a year (spring) and it will grow to a height of 12", then droop over. A small amount of fertilizer should be applied at seeding, and it should be watered until it has germinated. Cut at a height of 4".
