Description
  • Produces and easy to maintain and excellent looking deep green turf
  • Best results obtained with moderate feeding during wet conditions
  • Contains rhizomatous tall fescue (RTF) for excellent drought tolerance
  • Can root up to half a metre deep into moist sub-soils if maintained correctly
  • Also perfect for dry areas, repairs under trees or to reduce watering demand
  • When mature withstands dog and bitch urine better than most owing to deep roots
  • Strangely, it will also survive better in areas with temporary water logging

Promoting drought tolerance in existing lawns

If you are over seeding to create a more drought tolerant lawn you will need to over seed at the full new lawn rate on at least 2 or 3 consecutive years to enable the Staygreen grasses to dominate over your existing grasses. In addition if your lawn is over 20 years old it is likely to suffer compaction which will seriously compromise the drought tolerance of the Staygreen grasses.

MOWING HEIGHT

  • Normal use: 1" to 11/2"  (2.5 to 4cm)
  • Heavy use, winter or drought: 2" or above (5cm plus)

GRASS SEED MIXTURE 

  • Dwarf perennial rye grass
  • Rhizomatous tall fescue
  • Tall fescue 

RATES for SOWING GRASS SEED 

  • New lawn: 35 grams per m2
  • Over seeding: 25 to 35 grams per m2
Lawn Quality Medium
Growth Rate Medium slow
Recovery from Damage Very good
Drought Tolerance Excellent but won't live in a desert
Shade Tolerance Reasonable to good
Feeding At least one feed per year
Establishment from Seed 8 to 10 weeks
Maintenance Low
Soil type As happy as Larry in anything!

The Seeding Secret:

There are many 'miracle' patch, repair and seed packs that claim to germinate and grow quicker than the next! The secret - a bit of fertiliser! So, for new lawns or patching sow your seed between April and September, have the sprinkler ready if it doesn't rain and feed your new seedlings with a STARTER feed to speed establishment and bring your new lawn into use sooner. For established lawns when overseeding use a seasonal fertiliser; the 'sandy soil' version is the best for this situation as it contains a broader range of nutrients compared to the 'clay soil' version thus looking after both your existing grass and the new seedlings better.

In view of the dry conditions I would guess only about one-third of the seed has taken, so am having to re-apply.

Tried this for the first time from near the beginning of the year having read their advice on the products they stock. Most of my grass area is pretty compact and needs breaking up but this longer rooted grass has taken well where I've spiked the areas. The weather up to now (early June) has been quite hot and dry with the occasional downpour but the new grass has grown and survived quite well despite the pretty dry conditions. Probably needs a good soaking again.

Digging in organic soil improver from local farm to aid top layer and encourage worms back.

We used this seed to patch a back lawn and completely start from scratch with the front one which slopes steeply and seems to be poor soil. The seed has germinated very well on both lawns and we now look out on beautiful deep green lawns. Not expert gardeners but super result. would recommend.

We have been exceedingly impressed with Lawnsmith’s Staygreen Grass Seed which has germinated very quickly and evenly, producing a good fine green covering within two weeks. As farmers we have sown many acres of grass land and also domestic lawns. This time we needed a grass seed suitable for a dry, rough track beneath trees in our garden. Growing conditions have been good but the grass seed has performed exceptionally well.

Followed instructions but, as application was by hand, mixed seed with equal volume of sharp sand to prevent over usage. Grass has grown well and, with a few exceptions, formed a dense mat. As described this seed is for a family lawn and consequently the grass is quite coarse.
