Lawn grass mixtures
The formulation of forage mixtures to create a homogeneous, fine and elegant turf must take into account, in addition to climatic conditions in which it is planted, also the following main criteria:
- its use: for ornamental, recreational, sporting, rustic or landscape lawn;
- its specific composition: intercropping and competition between species;
- its quality through the used varieties: variety that has as indispensable requisites, in addition to a minimum level of adaptability, a good speed of settlement, a slow development and a good resistance to go to seed.
The variation of these essential requirements among the selected varieties, combined with a more or less specific and varietal purity, indicates if the mixture belongs to the standard or professional category.
