Vineyard Alleyway Low Maintenance Grass Mix

Ref: MIXVINLM

This long lasting surface mixture is designed to provide a uniform surface between the alleyways. It contains traditional grass species and no dwarf ryegrass, this means that it will regrow slowly after mowing to reduce the amount of times it requires cutting per season. For sites with high machinery traffic, a more durable option which includes dwarf perennial ryegrass may be more suitable. It can be sown from April until September.
