Recommended only in northern states within the No Mow planting zone. The addition of Annual Rye to our No Mow Seed Mix provides rapid soil stability for seeding steep slopes and erosion prone sites. No Mow is a drought tolerant, low-maintenance grass that needs mowing only once or twice a year. A cool-season blend, No Mow grows actively in the spring and fall. Once fully established, a No Mow Lawn requires very little water due to a large dense root system that also serves to inhibit weed growth. Moderate foot traffic is well tolerated and No Mow grows well in most soil types and light conditions. However, consistently moist soils and heavy clay soils should be avoided.
The minimum order size ("5") for No Mow is 5 lbs.
5 Lbs per 700 sq ft;
7 Lbs per 1000 sq ft;
300 Lbs per acre.
2022 No Mow Seed
Due to a serious shortage in the 2021 fescue seed crops, all 2022 No Mow seed is coated with Pro-Nitro Plus Seed Coating. The coating contains limestone with a polymer to absorb water more effectively, along with a fertilizer, kelp, and mycorrhizae to provide plant hormones and rapid root growth. Our seed is not treated with any pesticides – no fungicides, herbicides or insecticides.
Planting and Propagation Notes
If you plan to use an erosion blanket, the Annual Rye mixture is not required. No Mow with Annual Rye should only be used only where winter temperatures will be cold enough to kill-off the annual rye. In northern regions, zones 2 - 4, annual rye will usually winter-kill (except in milder winters). Annual rye is not recommended in southern regions, zone 5 and warmer, due to its persistence in warmer winters. When planting on slopes in the fall, plant your seed no later than September 15th to ensure sufficient growth for the nurse crop to hold the soil.
No Mow should be planted in early fall or in spring, on a prepared site from which all weeds have been removed. Spring plantings have the advantage of early-season soil moisture, while early fall plantings have the advantage of moderate temperatures and fewer competing weeds. Germination can be expected in one to two weeks.
