Grow our No Mow Lawn Grass to save time, water, and money while enjoying an attractive, low-maintenance lawn. Ideal for high traffic areas, a mix of six dwarf fine fescue grasses grow to create a thick, deep green, finely textured turf. The grasses grow densely with deep roots, creating a lawn that is durable, drought-tolerant, and requires minimal irrigation. Without mowing, grass blades create a wonderfully soft, swirling pattern. For a more manicured look, you can mow once a month or less.

Our No Mow Grass Seed Mix is the solution for a low-maintenance drought tolerant lawn. This is a cool season grass mix, featuring six dwarf fine fescue grasses - Jamestown Chewing Fescue, Quatro Sheep Fescue, Sea Link Slender Fescue, Sword Fescue, Aurora Fescue, and Kent Creeping Fescue. 

This mix of grasses has been formulated to create a lawn with deep fibrous roots; this helps to increase its durability in high traffic areas. Dense, deep roots also create a drought tolerant lawn; No Mow turf typically only needs about 4” of rain per month, requiring little additional irrigation, except during dry spells without summer rains. Left un-mowed, the grass blades create a wonderfully soft, swirling pattern. For a more manicured look, it can be cut once every four to six weeks to a height of 3" to 4". This grass mix can tolerate shade; in summer or anytime the average temperature is above 80°F, it should be kept at 3″ or taller to prevent the ends from rusting or burning.

This mix is suited for a wide range of the United States and is best for regions in the cooler average-rainfall areas of the upper Midwest, northeastern US, and higher elevations of the Intermountain West (See recommended planting area map in product photos). In the Western US, this cool season grass is better suited for use at elevations above 6,000-7,000 feet, compared to warm season native grasses (like Blue Grama and Buffalo Grass). No Mow is best sown in March through early May, or late August through September. This grass grows best at and around 70°F.
