Turf Hokie said: Why does it seem that Jonathan green black beauty is being recommended so much this year? I can't count how many times I have seen it recommended, especially in th organic arena. I have never used it but am being told it is a darker green? Along with the other positives of a tttf. But is there anything else that separates it from other tttf blends? JOHNATHAN GREEN PRO BEAUTY MIXTURE 30% TAOS TALL FESCUE 25% TOMBSTONE TALL FESCUE 20% DAKOTA TALL FESCUE 20% FRONTIER PERENNIAL RYEGRASS 5% DEEPBLUE KENTUCKY BLUEGRASS The color is great. The mix has been breed to require less N and water, grow deeper roots, the fescues are endophytic which resist surface feeding insects.
