LM5 Cricket Grass Seed 10kg

Also available in: 20 kg Bag Size

Suitable for areas that require a wear tolerant grass seed mixture that is tolerant of low heights of cut, e.g. cricket squares, wickets, lawn tennis courts, golf tees and lawns that are anticipated to experience an exceptional amount of wear.

This seed mixture is composed of two Dwarf Perennial Rye-grass cultivars providing excellent colour and fineness of leaf. Both cultivars have been firmly established on the Sports Turf Research Institute listings for several years and provide outstanding shoot density and resistance to Red Thread, a turf disease that commonly affects Perennial Rye-grass. Both cultivars are selected for their ability to tolerate wear and recover from the seasons play.
