Meadowspring Turf Farm offers two varieties of tall fescue (cool season grasses):


RTF Water Saver
RTF® Water Saver® Sod consists of Barenbrug's best performing tall fescue varieties. These tall fescue varieties were selected because of their high turf quality under various environmental conditions, including moderate and extreme moisture stress. These varieties were also chosen for their rapid recovery if the turf is exposed to extreme drought conditions. This sod is self-repairing because of the rhizomes that are produced.
