Product Description

Salt spray can be a real issue for coastal homes or roadside properties that receive all that the sea throws at them! This is the ideal solution for homes that are close to the sea and suffer from salt spray or for properties that are close to roads with grass that falls foul to gritting. We created ROBUST: Coastal Sand & Salt to combat these harsh conditions that grass typically struggles to grow in. A mix of the finest and toughest fescues along with perennial ryegrass which is fast to establish, this mix is quick to reclaim these problematic parts of your lawn and robustly return them to their very best.
