Rhizomatous Tall Fescue (RTF®) is a species of turf grass that is extremely durable and dense. It creates rhizomes, which are underground stems that grow laterally through the soil to stabilize and spread the turf grass. These rhizomes stem upward to the surface while also growing new roots downward, creating new plants. The process is pretty similar to that of the Kentucky Bluegrass. However, RTF® sod differentiates itself with the ability to survive the transition zone climate and additional tall fescue turf regions.
