“Our appearance on the Marilyn Denis Show will inform thousands of homeowners from coast to coast on the benefits of RTF Water Saver grass seed,” says Streatch.

An RTF lawn also helps tremendously with water conservation. RTF Water Saver grass seed is a revolutionary product that aims at helping protect the environment. We all know how important it is to reduce our environmental footprint.”
While there is a long list of companies out there that only dream of having their product featured on the Marilyn Dennis show, Streatch indicates that he is thrilled to have such an opportunity for this kind of national exposure. The timing also could not be any better as Fall is the best time for planting.
“The Marilyn Denis Show obviously sees tremendous value in our new product,” says Streatch. “Going on the show will raise more awareness on this fantastic product and draw attention to how the landscape industry is changing with regulations such as the pesticide ban now a reality in many provinces across Canada.
RTF Water Saver grass seed, and its innovative traits has already grabbed the attention of esteemed researchers, including Dr. Michael Brownbridge., Research Director, Horticultural Production Systems at the Vineland Research and Innovation Centre in Ontario.
Dr. Brownbridge is conducting an independent two year evaluation of the new seed.
“Pest control starts with a healthy lawn (http:///www NULL.rtfwatersavercanada NULL.com). RTF Water Saver grass seed may have some unique properties that makes it resilient to drought stress and pests,” says Dr. Brownbridge. “These are great characteristics that can really help in light of the pesticide bans in several provinces, and will make a great foundation for sustainable lawns.”
He adds, “Pesticide and water use bans in many parts of the country make this an ideal alternative to traditional lawns of Kentucky Blue grass mixtures. RTF Water Saver seed establishes quickly and insect pests don’t like the bitter taste of the lawn. Dandelions won’t proliferate in its dense self-repairing turf. It’s also a water sipper, staying greener during droughts. These environmentally sustainable properties offer consumers improved value; it is easier and less expensive to maintain.”
As well, for government and commercial applications, it will mean lower maintenance costs because of less watering, fertilizing and repairing. Its ruggedness is perfect for areas that get a lot of foot traffic such as sport fields. It is suitable as a no-mow option for golf courses or highway applications.
DeWayne Diehl, Golf Course Superintendent, Louisville, Kentucky states, “The more we neglect it, the better it looks.”
The scientifically designed and proprietary RTF Water Saver grass premiered nationally at the Landscape Ontario Congress Trade Show. It garnered tremendous response for an eco-friendly and cost effective new grass seed.
