Quality is simple

A hard working groundsmen knows the value of varieties that perform well. We at The Grass People know time and money are major factors when carrying out work.

The seed you choose should be both suitable for the purpose, establish properly and perform well. Our varieties are also listed as recommended in the British Society of Plant Breeders Turfgrass Seed Guide.

Not all seed is the same

Seed choice

All our seed is thoroughly tested. It is likely if you buy cheap varieties that you will have more problems with weeds, stalks, dirt and bits of chaff. This means poorer germination which leads to more time and work reseeding.

The Grass People amenity varieties make sense as you can be confident that the purity of the seed and the quality of the mixtures in the bag do the job you expect

Choosing the right seed is so important:

Playing surfaces are an important asset.

When selecting blends you want desirable characteristics like recovery from very close mowing, disease tolerance and good cleanness of cut.

Why? Healthy grass plants are tolerant to the playing and varying weather conditions and are able to maintain a higher root mass, providing stability and recovery.

The Grass People varieties offer these benefits. Picking the right grass is essential as using the wrong varieties will affect performance and it’s always about how the surface performs.

Our Perform range of products are selected to do the job with varieties chosen for their ability to perform.

PERFORM Sports: a mix of three perennial ryegrasses that mean, wear tolerance and recovery - find out more.

PERFORM Cricket: a blend of ryegrasses for density and even wear resistance - find out more.

PERFORM Bowling and Golf: a great mix providing a dense sward and an even surface - find out more.

PERFORM Racecourse: A quick to establish ryegrass mixture with ability to recover well - find out more.

Lastly, good practice and maintenance is also key to keeping surfaces looking good.

You will see the positive effects if you work to maintain and improve the soil structure. Work towards a good growing base for grass to thrive and recover when needed.

Start right and don’t compromise on quality.
