Libe Slope Low Mow Turf

Ithaca, New York 14850, United States

Created By: Cornell Botanic Gardens


By utilizing grasses that are naturally slow growing such as fine-leaf fescues and allowing other areas to naturalize on their own, mowing of portions of Libe slope is limited to one time per year, significantly reducing the carbon footprint for this area. Need for watering and fertilizer are reduced, if not eliminated, in maintaining these areas.
