Product Description

Product Description

THRIVE: Sandy Soils will see your lawn flourish with its blend of 100% resilient fescues. The trio of fescue species in this mix stabilise quickly in weak and sandy soils to create a long-lasting sward with a strong root structure. Initially a slow-growing mix, once established, you can put reseeding to rest. This drought tolerant mix will thrive in the low nutrient soil conditions that are typical of sandy soils, whilst also creating a lush green lawn.

Chewings Fescue  40%
Sheeps Fescue 35%
Strong Creeping Red Fescue 25%
