This grass ' Playmaker Mix' is an excellent seed for durability with its low maintenance and deep root structure. Turf-Type Tall Fescue is known as a durable, drought tolerant grass that is much more fine bladed than the tall fescues of the past. The improved varieties have a very dark green color and match well with Turf-Type perennial ryegrass and Kentucky bluegrass.

Playmaker Mix is comprised of beautiful, yet durable Turf-Type Tall Fescue with elite Kentucky Bluegrass and top quality Turf-Type Perennial Ryegrass. There are no “low-end” varieties in Playmaker Mix! All varieties selected for this mixture show good to excellent ratings in NTEP* trials for wear and traffic tolerance and overall turf quality.

80% Turf-Type Tall Fescue (3 elite varieties)
10% Turf-Type Perennial Ryegrass (elite variety)
10% Kentucky Bluegrass (elite variety)

We planted Playmaker grass seed around our new construction home in late October. In less than a month, we had a healthy, green start to a new yard. We're thrilled to have a fresh lawn so soon for our kids to play next Spring! The Playmaker blend has thrived thus far in the Ohio Valley climate.
