Description

All Seasons lawn mix is a blend of our most popular native lawn varieties. The Griffin Weeping grass, Oxley Wallaby grass and the Redgrass are all renowned for their low maintenance requirements as well as their all season growth.

This mix of cool and warm season  grasses makes for one of the most adapted lawns to Australia’s extreme climates. With its high drought and heat tolerance for those scorching summers to its high frost tolerance for those icy winter mornings.

GRASSES IN THE MIX

Griffin Weeping grass (Microlaena stipoides var. Griffin)

  • Developed by the University of New England specifically to grow to around 15cm tall.
  • Griffin Weeping grass is incredibly shade tolerant. It can grow in direct sunlight and/or little to no direct sunlight.
  • It has high drought tolerance, medium salt tolerance, high frost tolerance.
  • This grass also grows on a range of soils but prefers a pH level of slightly acidic.

Redgrass (Bothriochloa macra)this is prohibited in WA.

  • It survives well in harsh dryland conditions where less hardy grasses usually fail.
  • Redgrass grows on a variety of soil types but is best on heavy clay.
  • It prefers slightly acid to neutral pH soils, but can tolerate moderate alkalinity.
  • It will germinate only under warm conditions, that is with air temperatures consistently above 250C.

  • Our Oxley Wallaby grass has been bred to only grow to around 15cm tall.

Recommended Sow Guidelines

Our seed mixes all include vermiculite, a commonly used product in the horticultural sector in its exfoliated form. There are a few reasons we mix our seeds with vermiculite:

  • Native grasses come in all shapes and sizes which generally makes them harder to mix and distribute evenly. Vermiculite is a proven method for creating consistent mix that is substantially easier to sow.  It is also ideal for the germination of seeds because its water holding capacity makes it a excellent medium for direct contact with the seeds, creating a humid micro climate around the emerging seedlings preventing scorching or drying out.
  • It is also a great soil improver due to its aeration properties. This increases your soil structure and gives your seedlings a helping hand to have good root growth and its  exchange properties can absorb excess nutrients and release them slowly to the plants via the finest root hair
