Maintenance Guide

Once established, follow general recommendations of 1″ of water from rain or irrigation per week, depending on soil conditions and climate. Although more heat and drought resistant than other Tall Fescues, Rebel Supreme will perform better with increased watering in periods of heat or drought. Visit the resources page to view or click here to download our watering guide for new and established grass.

Test soil prior to installation and amend as needed, ideal pH 6.0 to 6.5. Install in areas of full sun to dense shade. Rebel Supreme can be planted year round in most climates and retains its vibrant green color through all four seasons. Visit the resources page to view or download our soil preparation and installation guides.

Maintain at recommended mowing height of 2″ to 3″, raising to a range of 3″ to 4″ during summer to avoid heat stress. Follow general mowing recommendations, keeping mower blades sharp and removing no more than 1/3 of grass height per mowing. Click to view the Fescue Maintenance guide.
