Barenbrug Essential E8 Shaded Areas

Product Description

Keep your grass green, even when it is in the dark.

A blend formulated to perform in areas that are subject to increased levels of shade. Shade is one the main problems encountered in lawns. The mixture utilises Barlennium perennial ryegrass, a Barenbrug-bred variety, that performs well in shade conditions due to increased chlorophyll levels in leaves. It is also a slow-growing variety, which works well in lawn situation with other slow growing fescue grasses in the mixture. Despite being formulated to perform in shade, this mixture will produce an attractive turf – even if sown in areas of full sun.
