Description

Griffin Weeping grass is a winter active grass and is incredibly shade tolerant. The Griffin Weeping variety was developed by the University of New England specifically as a high quality lawn. Once established, it has low maintenance needs as it only grows to around 15cm tall, and is highly drought and frost tolerant. Griffin Weeping grass is perfect for areas that see the extremes of both winter and summer.

Griffin Weeping grass is our premium lawn choice because of its attractive appearance. At the same time it is persistent and prefers acidic soils which are commonly found across Australia. It is suitable for use on roadsides, and in municipal parks and gardens. Once your Griffin Weeping lawn is established, it will provide a persistent ground cover requiring only a few mows each year. The dense foliage and soft leaves mean that this grass produces a very high quality lawn. This Premium lawn is renowned for its incredible shade tolerance, which means its perfect for those lawns where buildings, fences and trees block out most of the sun.

SOWING GUIDELINES

  1. For best results try to ensure that the seed bed is weed free. Native grasses are slow growers and effective weed control is highly desirable.
  2. It is also incredibly helpful to know the pH levels of your soil, so take a soil sample to test your soil pH level following test kit instructions. Griffin Weeping grass prefers soils with a pH level of around 5.5 (slightly acidic).
  3. While the soil is under preparation, it is a good idea to sow a few seeds into a sterile seed raising mix to be kept moist until germination. This will allow for easier identification of lawn seedlings once the lawn is sown.
  4. Before sowing, the soil surface should be loosened with either a rake or harrows to ensure adequate seed to soil contact.
  5. No fertiliser is necessary. In particular, avoid any phosphate-based fertilisers. The addition of organic matter however will assist soil health.
  6. Spread the seed evenly over the prepared surface and rake it in, so it is lightly covered. Seed sown deeper than 15 mm may not germinate.
  7. Where possible, try rolling the area as it lightly presses soil particles together and ensures grass seeds are in contact with the soil. This will eliminate air pockets that could interfere with seed germination and growth, and a rolled seedbed also holds moisture longer.
  8. If there is access to irrigation, for the first three weeks, water approximately 2-3 times a week, taking into account the weather. Where there is no access to irrigation, sow from autumn to spring coinciding with rain. It is important after sowing grass seed to ensure seeds do not dry out.
  9. Use the sown seed sample to help identify grass seedlings from weeds.
