LM1 Fine Turf/Low Maintenance Grass Seed 10kg

Also available in: 20kg Bag Size

This mixture is ideal for low maintenance areas for general landscaping, links golf greens, outfield situations, bowling greens and fine turf lawns.

Fescue is a species that thrives in even the most extreme conditions and favours low nutrient situations where maintenance is reduced. The mix will provide excellent drought resistance through good root establishment, under favourable conditions, and provide outstanding disease resistance as Fescue is naturally disease resistant. The high percentage of creeping fescue in the mix facilitates soil stabilisation. Red fescues reproduce vegetatively through rhizomes enabling them to spread and fill surrounding areas providing excellent green coverage year-round for a 100% fescue mix.
