RTF® is the only Tall Fescue with True Rhizomes. Rhizomes help the RTF quickly fill in damaged and bare spots in your lawn with new shoots of grass. This results in less over-seeding, fewer weed problems and no wide-leafed ugly clumps of grass like other tall fescues can form.
Diseases, pests, and excessive traffic wreak havoc on turf grass. With Barenbrug's Barvette HGT™ bluegrass, you'll find no better friend against those challenges. HGT stands for Healthy Grass Technology, a tough and disease resistant Kentucky bluegrass.
RTF’s extensive root system has the ability to draw moisture from a deep soil profile, which helps it use less water and makes it adaptable in a wide range of soils. It has excellent heat and drought tolerance, with less irrigation. A New Mexico State University trial proved RTF maintained high turf quality with 30% less water. RTF quickly fills in damaged or open spots with new shoots of grass, has a high level of traffic tolerance and forms a dense turf without open areas that helps prevent weed growth. RTF is excellent in the transition zone climate and other tall fescue regions. One of the most shade tolerant cool season grasses.
HGT Sod is ideal for the transition zone and other areas that experience high heat and humidity. Winning awards year in and year out, HGT especially shines as a sports turfgrass base, providing the extreme traffic tolerance and recovery managers need. While HGT has a lighter color than most bluegrasses, it is very distinct in the way it is able to stripe, with contrasting light and dark areas, making it a premier grass for world-class events. Summer Patch can wipe out Kentucky bluegrass completely. HGT is a different story altogether. Tested intensively on many locations across the country and in university trials, HGT stood out for its resistance to Summer Patch.
