Recent breeding has meant that although associated with hard wearing situations, finer leafed denser growing varieties are suitable for finer lawns. Chewings fescue (Festuca rubra commutata) Prefers slightly acidic sites. Compact form is ideal for finely mown greens and lawns. More disease resistant and better colouring up in the Spring than Slender CRF. Slender Creeping red fescue (F. rubra litoralis) These are more drought tolerant and have better autumn colour than other fescues. Very hardy. Intermediate in habit between Chewings and Strong types. Strong Creeping red fescue (F. rubra rubra) Spreadsbyrhizomessoissuitedtolocationswhichsuffererosionandrequirestabilisation. Sheeps fescue (F. ovina) Fine, waxy leaves with greeny blue colour. Ideal for sites of low fertility undergoing reclamation. Bent (Agrostis spp.) Use in situations which are closely mown. Smooth stalked meadow grass (Poa pratensis) Can be as hard wearing as perennial ryegrass but takes a bit longer to establish. The STRI suggest leaving at least a year between sowing and usage.
