Dark Green Color
This turfgrass is naturally very dark green, which means you don't need to add extra iron to darken the turf. Nexus XD is perfect for use on fairways, athletic fields, home lawns and other locations where high quality, dark turf is desired. Nexus XD can also be used for adding dark brilliant color to a bluegrass or tall fescue mixture and for blending with other perennial ryegrasses for overseeding applications.
