Products — GreenWave



Brief Description:
GreenWave is a creeping red fescue. This species is often seen on unmowed slopes. It can also be used in any ornamental area where a mounding ground cover effect is desired. GreenWave can be cut at 2 inches for a traditional turf appearance. However, it is not as durable as the Marathon® varieties in a lawn application and we recommend it be limited to areas where high shade will not support Marathon..

Recommended Use:
This species is often seen on unmowed slopes. It can also be used in any ornamental area where a mounding ground cover effect is desired.
