Creeping Red Fescue is a cool-season grass used in cool, shaded, mountain sites, such as camps, resorts, and cabins where low-input of mowing, fertilization, and irrigation is desired. Creeping Red Fescue does not do well in hot climates, except in shady, dry situations. In areas where Kentucky bluegrass does well, creeping red fescue forms an excellent companion grass to increase shade tolerance. Creeping Red Fescue grass seed germinates and establishes slowly. Red Fescue is moderately wear resistant.

Creeping Red Fescue requires very little maintenance. It does not require much fertilizer and does not need excessive amounts of water. A high mowing cut is recommended. Red fescue grass seed has a high tolerance for cold temperatures and shade, moderate tolerance for drought and wear, and low tolerance for heat.
