    Extremely low maintenance grass mixture that requires only one or two mowings a year. It is comprised of six slow growing fescue varieties. Best results are when grass is mowed once a month at 4 inches.

    Does anyone mow this blend or similar?

    Or worse, drop a customer due to low maintenance technology?

    Don't tell customers about this, and yes I would drop them if they were to move to this blend. I mow every week in the season. I have a living to make.

    We have a similar brand here,a large seed company rebranded their slow selling grass seed as a no mow variety,they sell tons of it now,but it still needs mowing every week.Just shows what slick marketing can do and how gulliable consumers are.:)

    We have none of this in my area. I don't believe that I would take a custormer who only wanted their lawn cut once per month.

    I've read that the 6 blend fescue will only grow to 9" if left unmowed all season! It also requires less water and can stand up to hot weather better than most.
