12 to 14 inches?????????????????


Is that all??????????????????????


I've got some drought resistant grass thats alleged to have 6 foot long roots.

A friend has some really pricey grass blend that is alleged to have up to 25' roots.
I do know that his established grass was very green this year and he hadn't gotten rain or watered it until into June.
This was just from what little snow he had over the winter.

12 to 14 inch roots............... I'm not even slightly impressed.

It doesn't matter, because the h.o.s will have the irrigation on everyday with all the fert sitting on the surface every few weeks and will be happy with any roots that show up in the corer/plugger below the living thatch...

I tried to find information on the cultivars contain in Pearls, (which has sunny, shady and sun/shade mixtures); could not find cultivars. But I found a reference that said it contained fescue, bluegrass and perennial rye.
Odd, but when I used Google I found almost 20 pages of citations, but almost every one linked back to the company website. Most simply repeated their advertising message. He must have major influence at Google. Five pounds costs $34.98 at Home Depot.
Here is almost the only review and pictures I found.

Click the "specification sheets" under the FAQ tab -- that's where you cna find the cultivar breakdown.

I find it interesting that they have fine fescues, tall fescue, and Kentucky bluegrass in their mixtures, but claim that it is suitable for all 50 states. I wonder how well they think their cool season mixes hold up in Florida?

Or Hawaii. Too warm at night most of the year and definitely too humid in the day time. Unless these cultivars can deal with night temperatures near 80 every day of the year.
