The King is a show lawn and is really only for the serious home lawner who is prepared to put the work in. If you aren't that keen or have crappy soil this is not the one for you. 60% Tall Fescue, 35% Fine Fescue, 5% Browntop. It’s thick and carpet green and tough once established. It's really a show lawn of fescue varieties so sun or shade - it doesn't care. Stands the dry well but don't forget - its a prima donna so needs to know you care and will look after it all the time.
