A CountrySense favourite for tough ground, Hardilawn LS™is an environmentally friendly mix with endophyte enhanced ingredients for sandy soil.
Your grass will stay green during hot summers, especially if your soil is sandy. Other grasses suffer on sandy soils, but HardiLawn LS thrives on them. It tillers aggressively and produces very dark green, dense, and wear tolerant turf.
HardiLawn LS grows slowly, which means fewer mowing and reduced clippings. It is an ideal choice for residential properties to conserve water and withstand traffic but is also used for play grounds, football fields, golf courses, grass parking areas, etc.
70% Dynamite LS™ Tall Fescue
15% Slider LS™ Perennial Ryegrass
15% Torsion LS™ Perennial Ryegrass
70% of HardiLawn mix consists of Dynamite LS Tall Fescue, the champion grass carefully bred to withstand drought, insect attack and several diseases.
Other components, Slider LS Perennial Ryegrass and Torsion LS Perennial Ryegrass, stabilize the mix for various growing conditions. Being deep rooted, tall fescue performs in shade and sun and capable of withstanding summer heat and drought, while perennial rye-grasses will better survive in cooler conditions. Although slower to establish than perennial ryegrass, the tall fescue is very persistent.
The patented LS components of the mix are endophite enchaced. Endophotes, beneficial fungi living within the grass, help the plants in water management. That's why heat, drought, and pests do not affect the grass. The turf is environmentally friendly and does not need much care.
