from what I have seen when I did some "research" this is a mixture of dwarf grasses. one site said the height is anywhere from 3" to 6"
I would do some research to see how it would work in your planting zone. Check with your local extension office. They will be able to let you know if this stuff is really what it claims

i heard a few years ago that the scientists were trying to engineer a grass that only grew so tall. Im just wondering if they really did it. With mini roses and such they just give them a stunt hormone to keep them from growing. But i dont think this is the same thing.

We absolutely love it. We tried a small bag last year over a patch of bare soil on a hillside and we like enough to do more this year. We want to remove a patch of grass to put in a garden (looks like food prices will be high this year). The rest (besides the borders where we want to plant permaculture) will be low growing no mow grass. Eventually we want to do a Devri's -"Path To Freedom" type garden where the animals eat the grass path areas.

It sure beats mowing, watering and chemicals. . .which sounds so stupid now that I think of it.

If this stuff really works, it would be fantastic for rental properties. Imagine the money a landlord would save by not having to hire out for mowing! Or you'd never have to worry about a tenant not mowing the yard, if that was the arrangement.
