Description carrat-down

The Species Rich Lawn Mixture is a specific mix for Eco Lawns. The high number of species included lends the mixture to gaining BREEAM credits when a perennial eco lawn type mixture is required. The mixture suits a range of soil types and mowing regimes, it can be kept neat at approx 50 mm - 75 mm with mowing generally required once every fortnight during the growing season or it can be left to grow long and strimmed just once or twice in a season in May and late August. If further species are required then this mixture can be combined with our WF1, WF3 and WF10 mixtures.

An 80:20 mix of grasses & native wildflowers including Black Medick, Common Fumitory and Wild Carrot.

Copy Usage Guide

Maintenance
 

First cut mid-September - 1st October and collect the arisings. 

Cutting height 70 -100 mm

 

Cut from mid-August to early October. This can be done as one cut but preferable, and if the meadow is big enough, you will cut it in sections leaving a week to a fortnight between cuts. Ensure you collect the arisings. If the meadow is large enough, consider allowing up to a fifth to stand uncut through the winter and cut down and remove the clippings in March the following year, this will provide a habitat for invertebrates and some vertebrates over the winter. Rotate this area so a different section is left uncut each year. This more closely replicates the grazing of animals which would leave some small areas not grazed.

If possible, and with the obvious exception of areas you are leaving uncut, lightly mow the sward down to 70 -100 mm as required throughout the winter months until March and collect the clippings.
