Sheep Fescue is a low growing (to 1 ft.) cool season grass, green almost year-round with some watering. Being a bunch grass, it will not make a smooth turf. Though clumpy, it makes a fine, dark green lawn alternative. Tolerant of a wide variety of soil types and can take partial shade. Easy to establish spring, summer or fall. Seeding rate for small areas: 3-5 lbs per 1,000 sq. ft. Reclamation: 20 lbs. per acre. Zones 2-6.
