Description

A18 is a proven specification for applications such as highway verges, embankments and roundabouts. The mixture establishes quickly on a range of soils types and provides rapid ground cover to prevent gully erosion and loss of soil onto road surfaces. The high preventage of creeping grasses means the sward will stabilises gradients in the long term, however it is recommended that gradients of more than 3 in 5 utilise some form of geotextile to stabilise the bank whilst the sward establishes. The inclusion of white clover provides the sward with an ability to fix nitrogen and sustain itself.

  • Rapid establishment
  • Suitable for use on gradients
  • Performs on variable soil types
  • Low maintenance
  • Suitable for all D.O.T specifications
  • Added Zurich Creeping perennial ryegrass ensures ability to regenerate from wear
