    The Eco Lawn option is often referred to as 'no mow fescue' in this area. You can usually get by with mowing once in mid spring and once in late fall. If it is not a high traffic lawn (read no kids) it is a good option as long as the customer is willing to accept a lawn that looks like it needs to be mowed all of the time. This grass does a pretty good job of shading / crowding out weeds if they wanted to go the no chemical route. It will need starter fert and water for establishment but after that neglect is the best maintenance.
