“Amenity Ryegrass” lawns are quick to establish and feature dark green leaves year-round. This popular lawn variety is typically used where a hard-wearing lawn that establishes quickly is required such as sports grounds or high foot traffic areas. Control of other grass weeds is difficult with this lawn so it is worth putting the effort into soil preparation before seeding. We recommend allowing the weeds to germinate and then spraying with Glyphosate at least 2-3 times before the lawn is seeded. Best results are achieved when the lawn is seeded late spring or into summer if it can be irrigated and on a site that is well-drained. Broadleaf weeds that germinate can be addressed with products such as TurfClean. The ideal mowing height is 35 mm and seeding rate is 50 grams per square metre. This turf species can be grown in all regions of NZ.
