Are you looking for a lawn that is more biodiverse than a traditional formal lawn? A wildflower Species Rich Turf could be the answer for you.  

Species Rich Turf is the midpoint between having a formal striped lawn and a totally untamed wildflowering area. It is a mixture of both wildflowers and grasses. From a distance Species Rich Turf will look like a formal lawn with splashes of colour and small flowers in it. It is very natural in appearance and will rapidly increase the biodiversity for all the creepy crawlies and bugs that call your garden home.   

The great thing about this Turf is that it doesn’t need to be mown as often as a regular lawn, you can do that if you wish, or you can allow the turf to grow longer as this only increases habit and allows the flowers within the mix to flourish further. A lawn area that is mown less means less work for you in the long run.

How often do I cut Species Rich Turf?

It depends on the local conditions in which the turf is grown and the overall look you want it to have. Some will mow it twice a month to keep it trim with more of the grasses showing through. Others will leave it as long as 8 weeks between cuts to let more of the flowers in the mix come through.

 

Do I need to remove the plant material from Species Rich Turf after a cut?

Yes. Its important to remove the organic matter as it promotes good airflow, allows the lawn to breathe. Utilise a collection box on the back of your lawn mower.

 

How big is a Species Rich Turf?

It is harvested in slabs of 0.8m x 1.2m; although each slab is slightly under 1 m2, we sell it in full m2 and will send just over your required amount to the nearest full slab. EG, if you order 30m2, we will send 32 slabs making 30.72m2
