We added clover to our PT 701 Let It Grow to feed the grasses and the bees! We blend five fine fescue grasses and white clover, selecting the best performing varieties. Simple to maintain with dramatic results. Unmown grasses grow 6-12 inches, flopping over to create a wind-tossed effect, and the perennial clover blooms in the summer. Clover fixes nitrogen in the soil to naturally fertilize the grasses. Drought tolerant. Grows in sun and shade. Mow or line trim once or twice a year to maintain the "flopped look" and remove seed head stalks.
