Description

Rapid Green Lawn mix is a unique blend of both native and exotic shade tolerant grasses. This lawn mix comprises one of our most notable natives when looking for shade tolerant grasses, Microleana stipoides var Griffin or commonly referred to as Griffin Weeping grass. This is complemented with the addition of  the popular exotic species, known for its high shade tolerance as well all round durability, the Fine Fescue grass. The Fine Fescue in the initial stages produces rapid growth providing a green protective cover while the slower growing and long lasting native grasses become established.

This lawn mix is suitable for home gardens or landscaped areas in cool temperate regions of south-eastern Australia where a finely textured lawn with good drought tolerance, high frost tolerance and ease of maintenance is required.

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.

Fine Fescue (Festuca rubra)

  • Creeping Red Fescue is a great choice for landscaping, as it grows quickly and covers lots of ground.
  • It grows well in sandy soil, it is also great for landscaping in tough spots.
  • It is considered one of the most eco friendly exotic grasses due to its low water, mowing and fertilization requirements.
  • Even though it is one of the most shade tolerant varieties, it will also tolerate full sun conditions although more water may be required.

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
