View Full Version : Grass Seed Situation

03-30-2011, 03:36 PM
I have a customer who I am in the process of finishing the flower beds and starting to seed the lawn. They want a fescue lawn and have requested me to use a mixture of titan ltd., tarheel 2, inferno, and firecracker. I am new to these as I usually use bermuda (in the Charlotte, NC area). Will these types of grass work and will they spread rapidly into the flower beds (which is a major concern for this client)? Thanks

The mixture is all "cool season" and won't spread like bermuda and "warm season" grasses. There are plenty of fescue and cool season lawns in Charlotte. Just make sure it gets plenty of water during hot and try periods.

Thanks. I was a bit concerned because everything written about Tital Ltd. in particular says it will spread laterally, fast.

I suspect that fast spreading of Titan is a huge exaggeration. Most tall fescues do not spread at all. And Titan is capable of spreading laterally. So it is a huge improvement over older non-spreading types, but it still spreads rather slowly. Slower than Kentucky bluegrass. Much, much slower than Bermuda.
