Village Green Turf

  • When choosing a lawn for your garden, it is important to get the right variety; the one that suits your climate, soil type, family needs and your lifestyle. Village Green is a very versatile grass- it will grow in full sun to partial shade, frost prone areas and all soil types.
  • After selecting the variety, you need to put organic matter into the soil no matter whether its sand or clay, to create a bed for the grass that will encourage microbe activity, effective water movement and get the roots into top gear.
  • Village Green has a deep and extensive root system which enables it to extract water and nutrients very efficiently.
  • Village Green has specialized below ground stems called rhizomes that act as a food store. This means that Village Green requires less fertiliser and has the capacity to recover from damage and wear. This results in a lawn that stays green for longer under water restrictions or drought.
  • Village Green continues to grow during the winter months which mean it maintains its colour, recovers from wear and keeps weeds out.
  • The benefit of establishing a lawn in the cool of winter is that you need a lot less water to get your grass started than say a buffalo or couch which need to be planted when its warm because when it turns cold they go to sleep.
  • Village Green rolls are light, hold together well and are easy to lay.
  • In summer, actively growing Village Green can lower the surface temperature by up to 20 degrees when compared to bare soil or artificial grass.
