Abstract/Contents:"Tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) requires fewer inputs than other cool season grasses such as Kentucky bluegrass. With newer turf-type tall fescue cultivars, more facilities are choosing them over Kentucky bluegrass due to better traffic and drought tolerance. The objective of this study was to determine what height of cut offers the best aesthetic quality and safety, measured by surface hardness, soil moisture, and shear vane rotational resistance. This is the first year of a two-year study."
