EG22 – Wear Tolerant Turfgrass Mixture
EG22 is composed of bent grass and fescue with the addition of some dwarf perennial ryegrass and smooth-stalked meadow-grass. This combination gives both fine structure and resilience to wear for pathways and parking areas. Once established, this mix has the ability to adapt to changing circumstances. On heavily used areas the tougher ryegrass will predominate whilst in other areas a finer sward will develop.

EG22 sown with white clover as a lawn (at 0.2-1g/m2) can produce a sward that is more tolerant of wear and stays green without the need for feeding and watering. Relaxed mowing during the summer will allow the production of flower heads for bees. small-leaved white clover is a small leaved variety which is very long lasting under a tight mowing. EG22 is illustrated with white clover in the page banner. This combination can be ordered as EG22c.
