LAWN SEED SELECTION
Which lawn seed should I use?
Superfine – Fescue / Browntop
70% Fescue and 30% Browntop
Usually used for smaller areas. Fine leafed grasses make a nice soft lawn. Susceptible to fungus disease (e.g. brownpatch) in autumn. Not hard wearing. Requires more attention to have it looking its best. Ideal for a ‘show’ lawn. Sow @ 30gms/m2.
45% Fescue, 45% Fine Leaf Perennial and 10% Browntop
Ideal for a good general purpose lawn. The F.L.P. content gives more durability (tracking, bikes, lawn cricket/rugby!). Sow @ 28-30 gms/m2.
Green Magic – Fine Leaf Perennial
Usually used for more extensive lawns to be mown with a ride-on mower. Less expensive to establish, hard wearing, but faster growing than the two above. Faster establishing and durable. Sow @ 20 gms/m2.
80% Fine Leaf Perennial and 20% Browntop
Used by the Council for berms between footpath and road. Can also make a good lawn. Sow @ 20-22 gms/m2.
