Our Equine Gateway Repair Seed mixture contains a blend of fast growing annual and biannual grass species for rapid re-establishment plus persistent perennial ryegrass and strong fescue for the underlying, long term repair.
Maximum grass production is paramount to reducing unnecessary additional feeding costs, particularly if the expense of renting extra grazing ground can be avoided. Reinstating sometimes difficult areas such as poached or damaged gateways, areas around feeding stations, water troughs, stable entrances and walkways to usable grazing grass must be a priority.
The seeds are best hand broadcast onto a crumbly harrowed or raked surface at a reasonably dense rate. Then (ideally) the seedbed should be lightly harrowed or raked again before rolling or treading the surface down firm. This puts the seeds into intimate contact with the soil for efficient soil to seed moisture transfer and ultimately more reliable germination and faster establishment.
Equine Gateway Repair seed has the ability to quickly produce good grass coverage in only a few weeks providing moisture is available and the average daytime temperature is above 12C.
