      Landscaping will sometimes require a cheap grass seed mixture for non prestigious areas. This economical blend is designed to be used over larger sites where the establishment of a basic grass cover is required but not necessarily at lawn quality.
      The combination of ryegrass and strong fescue seed will establish dense and durable seedlings which will quickly fill out (tiller) once mowing or topping begins.
      An ideal cheap grass seed mixture for the outlying areas of a large garden, against field boundaries, on construction and industrial sites or to produce a low cost turf in and around domestic buildings or over high traffic amenity areas.

      If a higher quality, more presentable turf is required, please refer to our General Purpose Landscape mixture

      Sow Economy Landscape at the full rate if high grass density is required more quickly or at a lower rate if economy is the leading factor.
      Once established, the resulting grass should be regularly cut between 25- 50mm to achieve a tidy appearance or it can be left longer and occasionally topped or grazed like pasture land.

      Please note: This is a bulk grass seed mixture with 25 kgs being the minimum order.

      SOWING INSTRUCTIONS

      • Produce a firm, weed free seedbed clear of large stones and any other debris.
      • Rake or harrow over the surface to create a thin layer of fine soil (tilth) approximately 10-20mm deep.
      • Split the total quantity of amenity grass seed to be applied into two equal amounts.
      • Apply the first half over the entire area either by hand or by using a broadcast spreader.
      • Gently work most of the applied seeds into the tilth with a firm rake or harrow.
      • Apply the remaining seed in the same way and again, rake or harrow most of them into the tilth.
      • Finally, use a light to medium weight flat roller to squeeze the seeds and tilth down into the seedbed.This method ensures the amenity grass seeds are evenly spread, set at different depths and in good contact with the soil. All of which helps to anchor the seeds in position so as not to float away during heavy or persistant rainfall and to retain the correct moisture level for quicker germination.
      • Amenity grass seed may also be surface sown however, germination may be uneven and significantly slower particularly during periods of prolonged sunny, dry or windy weather even with regular irrigation.
