The specific combination of varieties is called ‘No Mow’ and I’m using it almost everywhere in various ways. Unlike most grass seeds this is a combination of six varieties of Fescue that grow to only about 8” tall and then arch over quite beautifully.
I’ll gradually be adding to it with low growing scattered flowers and bulbs.
In other places – the Woodland and the Winter Garden – it will serve as a temporary groundcover. While we wait to plant the eventual groundcovers between the shrubs and trees, this will make a nice, more finished look than just bare earth..
Mown, it also makes an attractive manicured lawn, and one which grows slowly enough that I won’t have the burden of weekly mowing. It also needs little fertilizer and less water than other lawn grasses.
It’s all still mostly in my mind – but it is coming along.
