Village Green lawn has been bred to meet the demands of high-profile public spaces, as it:
Village Green can be laid anytime of the year across the Mediterranean. Laying turf from late autumn to early spring saves water.
Village Green is a certified turfgrass having been granted a plant patent (Plant Variety Right) by the Community Plant Variety Office of Europe in 2015. This is a gold medal stamp of approval for a quality grass.
There are eight Village Green growers across southern Europe, with more growers expected soon. Each grower produces turf under a code of practice that ensures customers get quality turf every time. This is backed by our Certificate of Authenticity, which is issued with every Village Green project.
For councils, constructors and landscape architects, we have developed a guide to assist in specifying Village Green in your next project. We also have a maintenance guide to help keep it looking good all year round.
As summers grow longer and hotter and rainfall declines, what has worked in the past does not necessarily work today.
For decades, cool season grasses such as ryegrass, fescue and poa have been preferred. They are adapted to mild summers and cool to cold winters where rainfall is plentiful. Under these conditions, they stay green year-round.
But under current climate patterns, cool season grasses simply do not perform.
Warm season grasses such as Village Green are well adapted to today’s warmer temperatures and lower rainfall, making them a more sustainable choice for modern lawns across southern Europe.
