Product Description

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.

Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Sort by ASC
Roughly speaking how long does it take for sewed seed to become a usable lawn?
Will this seed also give good results in areas that are less prone to shade? ...or should I perhaps consider two separate products for the heavily shaded and non shaded areas of my garden?
When's the best time of year to sow ?
Would this product be suitable for a back lawn that has shady areas and get very damp over the winter. I have re seeded with standard garden center purchased seed over the last 2 springs. The lawn comes on well through spring, summer and autumn but dies off in the most damp and shady areas.
We have been trying to grow a lawn by the side of an oak tree. It gets some sun morning and late afternoon.we have turfed it once and seeded it twice .You may well be our last hope. Leaves from the oak is part of the problem, but we do try to pick them up quickly,but not always..Can you help.Rgds Ken
