An extremely fine leaved but durable turfgrass blend creating a superb and versatile surface for most turfgrass applications including commercial landscapes, domestic lawns, golf courses, show gardens and tennis courts. Classic Turf gives super sward density and cleanness of cut, fast establishment with superior tensile strength combined with high drought and wear tolerance. Bargold has great shoot density and blends very effectively with the fescues in the mixture 45% Bargold - fine dwarf perennial ryegrass - lolium perenne

35% Viktorka - slender creeping red fescue - festuca rubra litoralis

20% Sergei - strong creeping red fescue - festuca rubra rubra
Bargold can be mown as low as 6mm with a well adjusted cylinder mower. But it can also be maintained at a height of up to 50mm should it be required. Rotary mowers are the best option for heights of cut above 20mm. The key to maintaining quality is to mow regularly, and never to take more than a quarter of the leaf off at any one time. The longer the grass, the better the turf can cope with adverse weather conditions. Classic Turf can survive happily on low fertiliser regimes and usually requires a maximum of 150kg Nitrogen per ha per year. This can be provided by two applications of fertiliser - one in the spring and one in the autumn - April & September.

Masters 100% Fescue gives a dense, consistent sward, with the fineness of leaf expected of a high quality turfgrass.

Fescues can be mown as low as 5mm with a well adjusted cylinder mower. For greens we recommend 5-8mm. For tees we recommend 10-12mm. In general, the longer the grass, the better the turf can cope with wear and tear. For bunker tops this turf is often left to grow without mowing to achieve a more natural festuca look. 100% Fescue can survive happily on low fertiliser regimes and usually requires a maximum of 150kg Nitrogen per ha per year. This can be provided by two applications of fertiliser - one in the spring and one in the autumn - April & September.
Description:

A deep rooting turf which has been specifically bred to be more tolerant of both drought and flood. It is very tough and recovers well from the hardest pounding in gardens and landscapes, on projects where quick establishment is needed and little irrigation is possible, in areas that are prone to occasional flooding and in salty places such as coastal areas and roadside verges. Its deep roots mean it is quick to self repair after damage from a variety of causes.

RTT contains other tall fescue grasses which complement the rhizomatous growth habit of the RTF and a smooth stalked meadow grass. This element adds to the strength and density of this turfgrass. 25% rhizomateous tall fescue festuca arundinacea
