Building A Better Lawn

Fox News:

It sounds too good to be true, but Madnick may have grown a better lawn.

After more than ten years of experimenting with thousands of seeds, he cultivated Pearl’s Premium — a specific mix of red fescue, tall fescue, sheep fescue and other grasses. When combined in special proportions adjusted for sun, shade and sunny-shade, his blends produce deep green, thin-blade ground cover that’s hardy yet soft to the touch.

It’s all in the grassroots, Madnick told Pearl’s Premium develops 12- to14-inch roots and pulls water from underground, meaning it requires a quarter as much water as comparable grasses. David Gordon from Newton Organic Lawn has been installing Pearl’s Premium for his clients for the past three years. He says it’s far easier to care for than other grasses as well.

“It grows slow so you only have to mow it every four or six weeks,” he said. “And if you don’t mow it, it flips over and becomes a meadow.”
