Marathon III® Lite Sod

Available in Store Only

Marathon III Lite is one of the most advanced dwarf tall fescue Armstrong carries and represents the latest release in a fifteen-year progression of breeding development.  Marathon III Lite is more dense, darker green, finer leafed, and slower growing than previous generations.  Marathon III Lite can be mowed shorter, resulting in a more compact carpet-like appearance; its slower growth rate results in significantly lower clipping yield which, in turn, lowers disposal volume.  Mowing frequency may also be reduced, particularly during cooler seasons.
