RTF’s patented technology fills gaps and bare spots fast and requires 30% less water than other varieties.
University and independent testing has proven conclusively that RTF is a cut above the competition.
With RTF Sod you instantly get a healthy, mature lawn, grown by the top turfgrass producers in the world.
RTF® is the only Tall Fescue with True Rhizomes. Rhizomes help the RTF quickly fill in damaged and bare spots in your lawn with new shoots of grass. This results in less over-seeding, fewer weed problems and no wide-leafed ugly clumps of grass like other tall fescues can form.
RTF’s extensive root system has the ability to draw moisture from a deep soil profile, which helps it use less water and makes it adaptable in a wide range of soils. It has excellent heat and drought tolerance, with less irrigation. A New Mexico State University trial proved RTF maintained high turf quality with 30% less water.
With RTF® Sod you instantly get a healthy mature lawn, grown by only the best turfgrass producers in the world. This is why you want to insist on RTF sod for your lawn or sodding project. It is The Only Sod You’ll Ever Need®. Only the growers listed on this site are licensed to grow RTF sod. Accept no other.
Eric McPherson, CGCS, from Omaha Country Club talks about they have embraced RTF from Barenbrug throughout the course. It has been RTF’s ability to deal with extreme weather conditions on each end of the spectrum while demanding less inputs that earned his trust as they make changes and prepare for the 2021 U.S. Senior Open.
Historically at Cog Hill, we had used Kentucky bluegrass blends for our roughs on all four golf courses...until we were introduced to RTF.
It has performed in every way that we have asked it to. Whether we plant it on bunker faces, high traffic areas, naturalized areas, or closely mowed intermediate rough it maintains great color, density, and health all season long. Its traffic tolerance, drought and disease resistance, superior color, and density make it an easy decision.
We will continue to use RTF for all of our continued construction and overseeding projects without a doubt.

We began using RTF roughly 6 years ago on some of our south facing bunkers as the bluegrass wouldn’t perform to our liking.
We tried out a few and were greatly pleased by the vigor with which the RTF held through the season and the years after.
We have since utilized RTF on all bunker face and pond bank renovations. Our hope is to continue our interseed program with RTF in our high traffic areas and eventually all our rough due to its durability during summer stress and drought conditions we sometimes see.
