Double Time Permanent TurfBred to fight for sport turf mangers and lawn care professionals. Double Time is a new and improved perennial ryegrass that is tough enough for the biggest NFL Tackle and safe enough for a newborn baby.

Under each Double Time plant is an extensive root system that goes down deep, way deep-much deeper than the best NTEP tested perennial ryegrass. That means that you'll have a tough time tearing it up with foot or wheel traffic.
