No Mow Lawn, also called eco-lawn, is a drought tolerant, low-maintenance grass that needs mowing only once or twice a year. A blend of cool-season fescue grasses, No Mow grows actively in spring and fall. Once fully established, No Mow 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.

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 & Cultivation
No Mow should be seeded 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.
Fertilizers or chemical treatments are not required and not recommended. Do not apply fertilizers that are high in Nitrogen. Fine fescue grasses require only a bare minimum of Nitrogen. Application of nitrogen can damage fine fescue turf, and is strongly discouraged. The use of lawn fertilizers that contain phosphorus are not allowed in many communities and near lakes and streams, due to the negative effects on water quality and algae blooms.
