Super Shade Mixture – Turf Grass

Super Shade Mixture – Turf Grass

Well suited for those shaded areas where bluegrass, ryegrass, and sometimes even tall fescue won’t persist long-term. Comprised of improved varieties of fine fescues and perennial ryegrass, Super Shade is slower growing and requires low fertility when compared to other cool season turf grasses. Mix 50/50 with Opti-Lawn Plus or Pro-Lawn Plus to create Sun & Shade versions of those mixes.
