Description

Our Great Southern Lawn mix is a blend with two of our most renowned lawn varieties, Griffin Weeping grass and Oxley Wallaby grass. Both of these grasses grow to around 15cm in height, keeping mowing requirements to a minimum.

Found commonly in our great southern states, both grasses are perfect for any Australian temperate climate that face both the extreme frosts of winter or the scorching heat of summer.

GRASSES IN THE MIX

Griffin Weeping Grass – (Microleana stipoides)

  • This is an extremely versatile and useful grass.
  • Weeping grass has an attractive appearance, persistence and high grazing value, as well as tolerance of shade and acid soils.
  • This native provides persistent ground cover once established and requires mowing roughly 3-4 times a year. The dense foliage and soft leaves means that this grass produces a very high quality lawn.

Oxley Wallaby grass  (Rytidosperma geniculatum)

  • Similarly, this variety of Wallaby grass grows to roughly 15cm in height
  • Wallaby is one of the most resilient native grasses.
  • It has high drought tolerance, high heat tolerance, high frost tolerance.

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
