Fescue blend is a tolerant grass that can grow in full sun or shade. It can withstand draughts and can handle long periods of rain.

What does Putting Straw on a Yard Do?
When planting new grass, you typically hear the term seed and straw. The term refers to sowing the grass seed and covering the grass seed and ground with straw. The straw is used to protect the grass seed while it germinates and takes root. Just like mulch in your landscape, the straw retains water and keeps the ground from getting dried out by the sun. It gives a nice bed for the grass seed to grow while it is establishing roots into the topsoil. Once your new grass is rooted, you can just mow over the straw.
