Tall - TITAN PLUS
TITAN T.L.C. Plus
Tall Fescue & Kentucky Bluegrass Mixture
80% Tall Fescue
20% Kentucky Bluegrass
Kentucky bluegrass is known for its ability to net lawns together – to “sod” plants in and create a bit of cushion or thatch. Many times this type of surface is preferred in athletic situations, like a soccer field. But growing Kentucky bluegrass by itself can be more demanding, especially as it relates to fertilization and water. That’s why we developed T.L.C. Plus tall fescue/bluegrass mixture.
T.L.C. Plus is mostly composted of our T.L.C. fescues with Titan genetics PLUS a small percentage of Kentucky bluegrass. This formula will be able to access water and nutrients at a deep level and be
able to take the pressures of sun, shade, and heat, while still looking great. The Kentucky bluegrass component adds
additional rhizome activity to provide a quicker recovery. In selected regions, T.L.C. Plus includes a heat-tolerant Kentucky Bluegrasses, like Thermal Blue. T.L.C. Plus is ideal for athletic fields, sod production, and other application where extra wear tolerance is needed.

Starting A New Lawn Or Repairing Bare Spots
Ideal Planting Time: The best time to plant is late summer, early fall, or spring. If seeding at other times, be prepared to touch up thin or bare spots as needed.
Seedbed Preparation: Till the soil approximately 6 inches deep. Level with garden or landscaping rake. Surface may be firmed by rolling or soaking, then re-raking till level. Leave top ½ inch loose to allow seed to be worked into soil.
Fertilization: Prior to or right after seeding, apply a starter fertilizer to help proper root development. Continue using a systematic fertilizer program to maintain a healthy lawn.
Seeding: Sow seeds evenly at 7-10 lbs/1,000 square feet. Rake lightly into soil. No more than 1/8 inch of soil should cover seed. Roll with a water roller.
Covering: Use blankets, pelletized or paper mulch, or straw to hold soil moisture and hasten germination. Baled straw may bring in unwanted weeds; use with caution.
Watering: Do not allow soil to dry out. Keep soil moist with frequent light watering until seedlings are visible. After lawn is established, water as necessary.
Mowing: Maintain mower height between 2 to 3 inches, never remove more than 1/3 of the grass plant with each mowing.
Weed Control: It is very common to see new weeds when planting a new lawn or disturbing the soil. For new lawns, wait 6-8 weeks before using any herbicide. For existing lawns, the best weed control is to maintain a healthy lawn by regular fertilization, proper mowing, and watering as necessary.
Overseeding An Existing Lawn
Lawn Preparation: Mow lawn to 1 inch and remove clippings. De-thatch with a power rake or hand rake smaller areas.
Seeding: Sow seed evenly at at 4-6 lbs/1,000 square feet. Work seed into existing turf by raking.
Watering: Keep soil moist with frequent, light watering until grass is established.
Mowing: Follow normal mowing practices when grass reaches 3 to 4 inches in height.
