County Shade Turf Supplier

Shade Tolerant Low Maintenance Turf

If the health of your turf is an issue in shaded areas, Shade Tolerant Turf provides the solution. This medium texture, low-maintenance turf is grown using grass cultivars which flourish in a shaded environment. It is grown for a minimum of 18 months before harvesting.

Shade Tolerant Turf is suitable for use in municipal gardens, shaded landscapes and lawns, all recreational areas and on golf tees and racecourses.

Key benefits:

  • Extremely High Shade Tolerance
  • Very aggressive with unique stoloniferous creeping ability
  • Medium texture - grown for 18 months
  • Exceptional wear tolerance due to high shoot density
  • Superb year round colour - impassive to climate change (as long as it is well maintained)
  • Drought tolerant
  • Requires less fertilizer but little and often

Disadvantages

  • Shade Tolerant Turf has a sideways root growth (rather than downwards) which means that it requires regular watering.  If in a shaded tree area, the regular watering can often be absorbed by the trees instead of the grass so is not always the best solution to a shaded tree area.
  • If not properly maintained shade tolerant turf may turn yellow in winter months.

TYPICAL SEED COMPOSITION - TEES (without Ryegrass)

Grass Species

  • 100% Supra / Supranova - Poa Supina

S.T.R.I. CULTIVAR PROFILE

Supina Bluegrass

  • Lateral above ground stems (Stolons) grow outwards from the main plant reproducing more shoots as it develops, enabling the plant to repair itself in a continuous manner.
  • Native to Alpine areas, it is the last grass to fall into dormancy and the first to actively grow in the spring.
  • Shade Tolerant Turf has been specifically produced to flourish under the changing climate.
  • Maintains excellent Winter colour.

FRESH TURF

The biggest problem with turf is managing to transplant it from the field to your garden and keep it in perfect condition.

During the winter months this is easy and the turf will last three or four days no problem at all. However, during late spring and summer the shelf life can be as little as 36 Hours.
