Imagine a turfgrass that greens up in the early spring, remains green until late fall, uses 75% less water and requires 50% less mowing. Imagine a turfgrass that is highly resistant to insects and diseases. Imagine a turfgrass that will grow in the heat of the southern states all the way to the cold northern U.S. You can have it with Legacy® Plus.
Legacy® Buffalograss plus Sheeps Fescue make up this low water use and low maintenance turfgrass sod. In the cool spring weather, the Sheeps Fescue greens up first and then your lawn transitions to Legacy buffalograss which will dominate during the heat of the summer. As the temperatures cool in the fall, Legacy will give way to the Sheeps Fescue once again. Both grasses are perennials so there is no annual ritual of over-seeding.
