BARKOEL
KOELERIA MACRANTHA

BARKOEL is a new species to the world of turfgrass. A grass which virtually thrives on low cutting heights (under 1”) and requires almost no fertilization after establishment. BARKOEL has very fine leaves and resembles fine fescues with excellent drought and salt tolerances and disease resistance.

Used in a mixture with the fine fescues (red, hard, sheep, and chewings) when planted. BARKOEL adds numerous benefits to any area where low maintenance is preferred or essential. There is no reason to sacrifice appearance or durability on lawn applications that won’t be pampered. Incorporate BARKOEL as a pure turf or in a blend with fine fescue.
