Abstract/Contents:"Mixtures of cool-season grasses and flowers marketed under the names 'Ecology Lawn Mix' and 'Fleur de Lawn'; and 'No Mow', a mixture of fine fescues, performed well as conventional, low maintenance, cool-season grasses when rated for color, cover and overall appearance in three years of trials at two locations in Minnesota. Materials were evaluated using no pesticides or irrigation, with 2", 4" and minimum (2/yr) mowing treatments and three fertility levels. Mixtures containing perennial ryegrass provided the best cover with minimal weed competition. Warm-season grasses and mixtures of forbs without cool-season grasses had significantly lower color and cover ratings. This research provides more choices for homeowners and commercial grounds personnel looking for acceptable, alternative turfgrasses with minimal inputs."
