How To Plant Atlas Fescue
The Atlas Fescue grass enjoys locations that provide full sun, however it is capable of growing just fine in partial shade. Loving locations that provide well draining soil, the Atlas Fescue grows in chalk, loam, or even sandy locations with ease.
How To Water
After planting, we recommend watering at least twice a week until the plant is established. Once settled into place, you may decrease the amount of watering taking place. However, even with a tolerance to drought, this grass will still enjoy some water during those hotter months. We also advise keeping an eye on your local weather and watering accordingly during periods of inclement weather such as high heat and drought. This will ensure a long and healthy life for your Atlas Fescue.
How To Fertilize
At the time of planting, we recommend applying fertilizer to the planting site. If you planted your perennial in the spring, the following application for feeding should take place in fall. If planting in the fall, the following spring will be the time to reapply your fertilizer. Maintain this process for the life of the plant and enjoy happy and healthy growth.
How To Prune
The Atlas Fescue does not require any pruning, unless you would like to manage the size or shape. In warmer climates, this grass is considered evergreen. If you live in colder climates where the Atlas Fescue will experience dormancy, you will want to prune away the dead grass just about the ground to make way for the new growth.
