Our best and most popular mix designed for full sun. While this mix tolerates partial shade, it will need at least 3 hours of sunlight a day. The bluegrasses go dormant during a drought. Mowing too close can cause browning. The ryegrasses and red fescue blend well with the bluegrasses to create a full lawn. Mix formulations are subject to change without notice depending on the availability of existing and new products. While the formula may change, the guiding philosophy and function of the mix will not.
