Classic Turf

An extremely fine leaved but durable turfgrass blend creating a superb and versatile surface for most turfgrass applications including commercial landscapes, domestic lawns, golf courses, show gardens and tennis courts.

Characteristics

Classic Turf gives super sward density and cleanness of cut, fast establishment with superior tensile strength combined with high drought and wear tolerance. Bargold has great shoot density and blends very effectively with the fescues in the mixture. Slender creeping red fescue has a good colour during the summer, autumn and early winter, it also has excellent salt tolerance and a rhizomatous growth habit. Strong creeping red fescue has better colour during late winter and spring. Combining these three species provides better colour for longer hence why these grasses are chosen together.

Typical seed mixture

  • 45% Bargold - fine dwarf perennial ryegrass - lolium perenne
  • 35% Viktorka - slender creeping red fescue - festuca rubra litoralis
  • 20% Sergei - strong creeping red fescue - festuca rubra rubra

Mowing

Bargold can be mown as low as 6mm with a well adjusted cylinder mower. But it can also be maintained at a height of up to 50mm should it be required. Rotary mowers are the best option for heights of cut above 20mm. The key to maintaining quality is to mow regularly, and never to take more than a quarter of the leaf off at any one time. The longer the grass, the better the turf can cope with adverse weather conditions. For example, the length of grass is directly proportional to the depth of rooting, which in turn provides better tolerance of drought conditions.

Nutrition

Classic Turf can survive happily on low fertiliser regimes and usually requires a maximum of 150kg Nitrogen per ha per year. This can be provided by two applications of fertiliser - one in the spring and one in the autumn - April & September. Slow release and organic fertilisers are recommended.
