Varieties

We grow four varieties of instant lawn for many different conditions and applications.


Dwarf Rye/Chewings Fescue blend (available)

The combination of these seed types produces a high density, fine textured, versatile grass suitable for most situations. Its hard-wearing factor is great for the family and the intertwining finer grass gives an appealing look with a soft feel underfoot. This blend is suitable for both full sun and semi-shade conditions. 

 

Chewings Fescue (available)

Chewings fescue is characterised by its very fine, round leaf. This produces a thick sward of grass that is very soft underfoot and grows well in shady spaces. Chewings fescue is the recommended grass in areas where there is a problem with grass weeds and unwanted kikuya as it is the only grass tolerant to the herbicide used in their control.


Tall Fescue/Chewings Fescue blend (available)

Tall Fescue is a dark green grass with a broad, flat leaf. Once established it forms a thick sward of grass that copes well in high traffic areas and has good drought tolerance. The dark colour and textured look work well in some landscapes where a deep contrast is sought. It works well alongside modern NZ homes. Tall Fescue must be mown high (40-50mm) to maintain its premium condition.
 

Kikuyu (unavailable)

Our Kikuyu grass is a medium to light green colour with wide, flat leaves. It grows well in any soil conditions and will maintain its full colour right through summer. Better suited to warmer climates Kikuyu will grow well all year round but will become dormant during frosts. Kikuyu should be cut low to create a tight sward of grass and prevent it becoming spongy underfoot.


All lawn varieties will perform well and look great with regular maintenance.
