Heavily used pathways are notoriously difficult to keep green and healthy. Part of the problem is that pathways are not usually irrigated. That’s why RTF has been so successful. It combines an incredible tolerance to drought with the ability to withstand heavy wear.
Pathway Turf With Tall Fescue
The main species in RTF is tall fescue, a species that is capable of withstanding high levels of drought and wear. It has been extremely successful for golf pathways, often in situations where traditional species have failed.

Pathway Turf With Ryegrass
Arena contains the latest varieties of dwarf ryegrasses to give a really tough, hard wearing turf. Gone are the days of the old types of ryegrass, which were coarse and very fast growing. Today, the modern ryegrasses are fine-leaved, slow growing, and easy to maintain. Fescue and smoothstalked meadowgrass are included in the mixture to provide the density of sward expected in a high quality turf.
