Creeping red fescue?
What a great idea this forum is!!!
I have a DH who hates to mow!!! He actually JUST mowed for the FIST time on Saturday!!! The grass was waist high! I have recently seen a landscaping show on HGTV, where the small amount of grass (sod) that was installed was called creeping red fescue, also reffered to as "no mow grass". I would like to know if it is feesible to have an entire yard of this. My conditions are Zone 5, southern NH, VERY sandy soil, full light range from full sun to full shade, steep slopes, sparse grass and lots of weeds on approx. 1/2 acre. If this is a possibility, I would be more likely to go with seed rather than sod, due to the difference in expense. Oh yeah, we also have lots of chipmunks and moles who like to tear up the yard.
So, is this a good option for me? Could you recomend any other types of low growing grass that would need little to no mowing? Any other tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
