Nanook Hard Fescue is extremely shade tolerant and requires little maintenance, including mowing frequency and fertilization inputs, making it ideal for situations – and growing environments – where upkeep is at a minimum.

This turfgrass also exhibits high quality, as demonstrated in a recent CTBT trial, in which Nanook was a top performer.


twca-logoThe certification of Nanook by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA) represents a big benefit of this turfgrass. The protocols for TWCA certification are highly demanding, requiring that water-starved grass maintain green covering through a series of drought simulations.

Key Benefits:

  • Drought Tolerance
  • Low Maintenance Requirements
  • Low Input Requirements
  • Turfgrass Quality
  • Disease-Resistance

Nanook is well suited for seed mixes intended for roadway medians, sloped landscaping, and underutilized areas of golf courses and parks.
