RTF Drought Resistant Turf
Rhizomatous Tall Fescue (RTF©) is an advanced generation of turf-type tall fescue which produces rhizomes. A rhizome is an underground stem that penetrates laterally through the soil to spread the plant. Rhizomes send shoots up to the soil surface while extending new roots downward, forming a new plant. The rhizomatous nature of RTF is similar to Kentucky bluegrass. However, unlike Kentucky bluegrass RTF will survive the transition zone climate and other tall fescue turf regions.
RTF is recommended for golf courses, athletic fields, playgrounds, campuses and high traffic residential lawns. A sun or shade variety, RTF turfs thrive in areas that don’t get lots of watering. Plus, this grass variety is drought tolerant so it’s perfect for the hot climates experienced in dry areas like Folsom and Sacramento.

Measuring & Ordering Sod
To get started now, measure the area of sod lawn needed and subtract areas not to be sodded. Area equals length times width. Whatever is left over is the amount you should order in square feet. It is not wise to cut corners. Give yourself a generous surplus for patching and extras. We have provided calculators below, making it easier to find out exactly how much sod you will need to order to fill your desired area.
