For Both Professionals and Homeowners

Both turfgrass professionals and homeowners will find Isabel a great choice for turf lawns, athletic fields, and common areas. Overseeding Isabel into existing lawns can increase overall turf quality and disease resistance.

As a “Shamrock type”, Isabel is medium dark green and has fine texture. An aggressive sod-forming rhizome root system helps fill in gaps and provides lush, tight-knit turf perfect for sod farms, athletic fields, and for everyday play in the backyard with bare feet.
