Why a Blend?

There are good scientific arguments validating using blends, as well as using single cultivars. Mostly it is a matter of preference, but the main reason blends are recommended is for genetic diversification. While in many cases the best answer is a single cultivar, every cultivar has its limitations. By adding additional varieties to a plant population, some of the limitations can be overcome. For example, with disease resistance, each cultivar will respond differently to an occurrence of disease. Sometimes a blend may actually better resist a disease collectively than the individual varieties. This is especially true in considering the overall band of potential diseases.

Why T.L.C.?

We are very picky about what goes into our T.L.C. tall fescue blends. We look at the regional performances of specific varieties and how well they will work with our Titan grasses, ensuring that you get a great looking lawn in every bag.

As of 2014 the following varieties are approved to be used in T.L.C tall fescue blend: Titan Rx, Titan Ultra, Titan Ltd, Hudson, Rendition Rx, Rendition, and Covenant II.

Genetic Diversification

T.L.C Tall Fescue Blends are specially formulated to combine the strengths and benefits of differing tall fescue genetics. The diversity of the varieties isn’t necessarily visible, but acts more as an insurance policy against disease and other pressures.

Disease Resistant

Each of the varieties in T.L.C. have improved disease resistance against many diseases including brown patch, red thread, and rust. And since T.L.C. includes the Titan genetic, T.L.C. has great come-back ability.
