Tall fescue in general should be seeded at 6 to 8 pounds per 1,000 sq. ft. or 350 pounds per acre. Cover seed with no more than .25 inches of soil, taking care to establish good seed to soil contact. If possible, roll the planting area. Keep seeds moist throughout the establishment period — 28 to 32 days after planting or when grass blades reach about 3 inches. Optimum mowing height is 2 inches, but it can be mown higher or lower based on your maintenance practices. Turf should be ready for use in about 6 to 8 weeks. Low to moderate fertility should be applied throughout the year; 2-3 pounds of NPK appropriate for your growing area should be adequate.
