A high performance turf variety

Village Green comes from an impressive sporting pedigree. It was initially developed to withstand the rigours of sport, with a dense cover, good winter activity and deep root system allowing it to cope with heavy traffic, damaging boots and seasonal demands. Village Green is more than 26 per cent denser than common kikuyu, giving Village Green its competitive edge! Village Green can be cut short to create a smooth surface for summer sports and grown longer in winter to handle tougher playing conditions. The dense cover and extensive root system mean players’ boots only damage the turf surface without harming the turf plant/roots. This means grounds recover quickly and ensure a safe, even and enjoyable playing experience.

Where science meets sport

Village Green was specifically designed to meet the needs of the commercial turf market, including sports associations and clubs.

Its sporting credentials are based on:

  • being visually aesthetic
  • year-round performance across all sports
  • a reduced environmental impact (less water, fertiliser and chemicals)
  • suitability to a wide range of soil types and climatic conditions
  • the strength of being pure and genetically stable strain of kikuyu.

Much of sports-loving Australia shares a similar climate to the Mediterranean. It was there that a series of selection trials were conducted comparing more than 70 turf strains. The standout performer across all climates and conditions was Village Green. The testing involved taking measurements of growth rate, height, greenness, stolon thickness and root volume.

Trials were conducted in harsh conditions with temperatures ranging from 40oC to -3oC. There is no other kikuyu that has gone through such a market-driven and rigorous testing and selection program.

Sport science has improved the output of athletes and Village Green has been developed according to those same exacting scientific standards to achieve peak performance.

Whether its school sports, the local park or competitive club competition, Village Green is a guaranteed win for your organisation.

Perfect timing

Village Green sod can be laid any time of the year across the Mediterranean. Laying turf from late autumn to early spring has the advantage of saving water.

Regardless of your project’s time demands, it’s always the right time to plant Village Green.

Confidence of certification and support

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 (see map on the supplier page). 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.

Village Green originated in Australia, where more than 8 million square meters of turf has been sold. Village Green is now proving to be the turf of choice across Europe.
