Low Maintenance Freedom Lawn II is similar to Freedom Lawn I with a mix of cool season fescue grasses, but it also contains a small percentage of traditional Kentucky Bluegrass plus Creeping Red Fescue for a smoother look. If you needed to mow this, it would resemble a more traditional lawn. 

Initially, this mix will grow about 18 inches tall because of the Annual Rye. The finished height will be about 6 to 12 inches. 

Spend time creating native plant communities instead of mowing and watering!

Planting Times and Recommendations:

In the spring when daytime temperatures are getting warmer and nights are still cool. This is typically between April and early June. In the late summer cooler days and nights will help the seeds to establish. This is typically late August through September.

Sow the seed into a prepared seed bed, lightly rake it in, and cover the areas lightly with a clean and weed free straw. This mix can be over seeded into an existing lawn as well to enhance it and add these species in. If possible, lightly roll the seeded area with a lawn roller or tractor tires to help get good seed to soil contact. Water the seed in at installation and after that if there is no rain in the forecast. Watering in the early mornings and evenings is best. If needed, watering should continue until the plants reach heights of at least 6 inches.

Please note: these mixes may require mowing the first season to keep the Annual Rye Grass from getting too tall.
