That's going to help out immensely. During our drought this year, any areas with any shade almost stayed green during the nastiest parts of summer.

As for the density of it, just be patient. Fescue needs to get established, and once it does, it starts to clump and fill out nicely. Next spring is when your going to notice how nice it is.

As for mowing, I just wait until it turns a nice shade of dark green, and then use a push mower on a high setting.
