In consultation with seed growers and universities, Sun & Shade Sod was developed as a proprietary mix of bluegrass varieties and fescue.
Sun & Shade is a proprietary mix of the newest bluegrass and fescue varieties specially blended to be drought tolerant.
Because of its vast root system, Sun & Shade has tremendous water saving benefits.
Once established, Sun & Shade can better endure drought conditions because of its extensive root system provided the soil is properly prepared allowing deep root penetration.
One of the biggest advantages of Sun & Shade is its extensive rooting structure that is enhanced by adding fescue with rhizomes.
Rhizomes are underground roots that allow the plant to quickly repair itself. Unlike older varieties, our mix contains rhizome characteristics and has a fibrous root system.
The roots of these new mixes can grow to a depth of several inches taking in moisture most rooted grasses cannot reach.
As the region’s environmentally-friendly turf grass mix, Sun & Shade provides a number of environmental benefits.
