PENN A-4 CREEPING BENT GRASS
Penn A-4 is dark green with fine leaf texture, exceptional heat and cold tolerance, high density, disease resistance, and aggressive growth habit. It provides a smooth grainless putting surface
Recommended seeding rate is 1.0 to 1.5 lbs/1,000 sq ft for new plantings, and 0.1 to 0.25 lbs/1,000 sq ft for interseeding. It is proven to be adaptable to various conditions.
This creeping bent grass prefers to be kept on the dry and lean side, thereby reducing maintenance costs.
It is free of Poa annua, Poa trivialis, and all other noxious and objectionable weed seeds.
Planting Creeping Bentgrasses means less fertilizer, less water, less babying than the old bents that superintendents are accustomed to. The end result is a very high quality playing surface that thrives on low mowing and culminates in near-perfect conditions, with no extraordinary practices.
