Just What The Doctor Ordered

Rendition Rx turf-type tall fescue is simply good medicine for a beautiful, healthy lawn. Drawing out the best plants from the original Rendition tall fescue and other varieties, selection work on Rendition Rx began years ago. Specific selection efforts were made to improve brown patch resistance, turf quality and performance under stress.

Better Brown Patch Resistance

Rendition Rx was bred for increased resistance to brown patch. While all tall fescues are susceptible to brown patch at some level, Rendition Rx provides some of the best protection available.

Well Established

Rendition Rx lawns establish quickly, providing thick, lush, dense turf rapidly. This helps reduce weed infestations and provides early ground coverage. Once established a Rendition Rx lawn has excellent sod strength, dark green color, disease resistance and shade tolerance, allowing Rendition Rx to be used in a wide range of applications and soil conditions.

Fill in the Blanks

Over time every lawn experiences some sort of damage, leaving bare spots. Maybe it is from a pet, a piece of lawn furniture, or caused by adverse weather. It happens to every lawn. While most tall fescue varieties have only a limited ability to fill in these blank spots, Rendition Rx has been specifically selected to produce rhizomes quickly, enabling it to provide increased density and fill in bare spots with new plants. We call this technology "Rapid Expressing Rhizomes," and it is available in every Rendition Rx seed and plant. With every new plant Rendition Rx creates, your lawn has more of its attractive and strong characteristics.
