Product Description

STEADFAST: Ultra Shade is the ultimate solution for lawns with permanent shade where grass is struggling to grow. Our specialised mix contains high-quality grass varieties designed for use in very shaded areas where the sun is blocked by walls, high-rise fences or where light levels are particularly low. This mixture contains the exceptionally shade-tolerant grass super species Poa Supina which is renowned for its ability to grow in relatively no / low light. This mixture is best sown from May to end of summer as the fescues require warm soil to germinate.
