This general sportsfield turf mixture will produce a hardy dense and compact turf for school or college grounds, community playing fields or any other designated sportsfield areas requiring a multi purpose grass surface suitable for most summer or winter competitive ball games.
The resulting turf will be relatively fast to establish, offer good resistance to drought or prolong periods of wet weather and recover well from light damage during the growing season
For quicker and more uniformed establishment sow at the higher rate. Allow the new seedlings to establish to a height of approximately 75mm before initially cutting to 50mm. This helps promote tillering of the amenity ryegrass. Thereafter reduce with each mowing until the desired height is obtained.
Sow at 35 grams per sq/m for new areas or 20 grams per sq/m for overseeding an existing turf
