      A relatively low yielding but diverse Grass Seed for Parkland mixture containing species specifically chosen to quickly establish over large scale traditional parkland type areas, in fruit orchards and/or over widely spaced tree-lined public sites.

      The resulting turf may be cut by mechanical mowers or lightly grazed by sheep or even deer.

      The small amount of white clover will fix a little nitrogen and help make the sown area more self sufficient in nutrients thus minimising the requirement for fertiliser.
      All of the species included in this mixture are perennial, very hardy and do well on most soil types.

      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 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.
      • 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.
