Plush RW Reclaimed Water

Tall Fescue Blend

 Plush RW (Reclaimed Water) Tall Fescue blend was developed for applications where reclaimed water is either used or anticipated in the future. Many tall fescue varieties show moderate tolerance to salts and other minerals associated with reclaimed water. The issue is that over time, those salts and minerals continue to buildup in the soils over time if not treated. Drought, clay soils, uneven irrigation and continued reclaimed water use can create a negative condition where many nutrients needed by the turf are bound up. While managing these conditions through leaching and other means will reduce the salinity temporarily, the condition will return so it helps to use a Tall fescue blend that tolerates those saline water issues.

Plush RW blend uses newer generation Tall Fescues that have very good color and compact growth habit. Many of these newer Tall Fescues also have higher levels of endophytes, a naturally occurring organism in the plant providing better stress tolerance and insect control. This blend provides varieties with varying tolerances to other environmental issues that can affect turfgrasses such as diseases, pests and fertility. Conducting a fertility regimen that doesn't add to the buildup of salts and other minerals while also releasing those nutrients usually bound up by reclaimed water is advised.  Plush RW blend is a Tall Fescue turfgrass blend that will remain attractive year round for professional turf managers.

 Suggested seeding rate is 10 lbs/ 1,000 square feet.
