ALL ABOUT THE
TALL FESCUE SOD
GROWN BY D. BREEN SOD FARMS
Grown from a special blend of Black Beauty Tall Fescue "cool-season" seeds from Jonathan Green, a long-established lawn seed company dating back to the early 1800s, D. Breen Tall Fescue Sod exhibits a number of significant characteristics. First, it is specifically produced for sites which are wooded and have limited sunlight. Second, deep root growth ensures ability to tolerate excessive stress from drought, heat, cold and shade. The cuticle of its leaves have a waxy finish which serves to repel disease, along with pressure from lack of adequate moisture. In addition, Tall Fescue is distinguished by its rich, dark green color.
