    What type of grass seed should I use for my bowling green?

    Bowling green grass seed mixtures have traditionally comprised a blend of browntop bentgrasses and fescues, with Germinal’s A1 Professional Bowls (80% Chewings fescue and 20% browntop bentgrass) a prime example of this type of mixture: this blend of fescues and bentgrasses works perfectly together to provide the very fine playing surface required on bowling greens and is ideal for use during end of season renovations.

    Establishing grass cover on banks and slopes: Tips for best results

    The successful establishment of grass or wildflowers on sloping ground and banks is reliant on being able to overcome several unique challenges which increase in significance as the angle of the gradient increases: the steeper the slope, the greater the impact of factors such as rainfall runoff and soil erosion on the ability of freshly sown seed to germinate and throw down a strong root for anchorage into the soil profile.
