characteristics

  • Green color all year.
  • Very resistant to trampling.
  • Resists wet floors.
  • It tolerates intense cuts well, although it does not need to be frequent, only occasionally.

  • In poorly maintained lawns, or poorly adaptable to the terrain, it takes over other species, covering the ground.
  • Sensitive to hormonal herbicides, therefore they cannot be used to control weeds.
  • It can be planted alone or in association with grasses, which give the meadow an even and dense aspect of dark green color.
  • In pure sowings, 15 to 20 grams per square meter are used.
  • The best date to plant it is early in the fall. Quick coverage
