Heathland Chewings Fescue



Heathland Chewings Fescue

The latest generation of Fineleaf Fescues, achieving new performance heights in quality, low maintenance requirements and drought-tolerance. For landscaping and golf course applications in which fertilization and irrigation are limited, Heathland EWS (enhanced weed suppression) is proving to be a superior choice, particularly in light of its TWCA qualification, as well as disease resistance. Heathland EWS has the characteristics of Chewings Fescue, with fine leaf texture, high shade and drought tolerance as well as allelopathic qualities that resist weed overgrowth. It also requires less frequent mowing than ryegrass, tall fescue or Kentucky bluegrass, and performs well in low fertility areas such as golf course roughs.

 Key Benefits:

  • Drought Tolerance
  • Low Maintenance Requirements
  • Low Input Requirements
  • Strong Summer Patch Resistance
  • Enhanced Weed Suppression

Seeding Rate: 5-7 lbs. per 1,000 sq ft
