Tough Play™

Tough Play RTF™

Product Overview

Tough Play™ is a Tall Fescue mix that is equally durable and attractive. Tall fescue requires less water and fertilizer to reach its full potential than Kentucky Bluegrass. This mix is available in two forms — standard Tough Play and Tough Play RTF™. Standard Tough Play is a lush turf suited for lawns and sports fields. Tough Play RTF improves upon the standard by adding Rhizomatous Tall Fescue varieties. The rhizomes allow the turf to self-heal and fill in damaged spots. Tough Play RTF also includes varieties that are approved by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA), meaning they require less water than other Tall Fescue varieties.
