Fall Maintenance of Your No Mow Lawn

No Mow Lawn Establishes Quickly. It thrives in most soil types and light conditions, but does not tolerate a dark, wet environment with heavy clay. The recommended minimum height for mowing is 3”, which may be a once or twice yearly mowing, depending upon the preferred result.
Interlocking Fescues Form a Dense, Durable Sod. The “creeping” fescues interlock with "bunch forming" fescues to form a dense sod that withstands moderate foot traffic and infiltration from weeds, once estblished. The fescues and their relatively deep root systems (up to 9”) enhance drought-resistance by reducing water loss and reaching deeper water reserves.
Site Preparation is Very Important. No Mow is a cool-season blend, and should be planted on a prepared site from which all competing species have been removed. Fall plantings have the advantage of fewer competing weeds, but spring planting is also an option. Seeds can be hand-broadcast or distributed with a grass-seed spreader and should be lightly raked in and then watered well for the first two months when needed. Germination can be expected in one to two weeks.
Seeds sown in late fall or winter will lie dormant until spring. Frequent watering may be necessary on very dry sites or in dry seasons until the plants are established. Once established, No Mow is a low-maintenance, drought tolerant, attractive choice for large or small landscape and garden needs.
The recommended seeding rate for No Mow is 5 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft., and 220 lbs. per acre.
