Description

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 50mm - 75mm 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.

Sowing Rate 15g/m2
Sowing Time March - October
Sowing Depth 10mm
Sowing Instructions Create a fine friable seedbed down to 150mm in depth. Carry out two equal sowings at right angles to each other and diagonally to main axis. Broadcast manually or use seed drill, rake level and roll. Ensure good seed to soil contact.
Maintenance
Autumn or Spring Sown (First year)
March - July Cut to 70mm to encourage tillering of new plants, repeat as desired. Regular topping back will encourage vegetative growth of the perennial species but will stop the sward from flowering. Once mowing or strimming ceases the plants will grow to the point of flowering. If flowering is required in the first year then one or two strims early on will suffice, alternatively a strategy of mowing throughout the first year will produce tight sward that will be more resistant to encroachment by weed species in future years. In All cases remove clippings
August/September Cut to 70mm after flowering. In all cases remove clippings.
Maintenance thereafter
March - October Cut down to 70mm as often as desired, can either be kept mown or left to gorw long and flower.
