One of Village Green’s great benefits is that it uses up to 40% less water and nutrients than most other lawn varieties, saving on your water bill and benefiting the environment.
Even in our increasingly drier climate, Village Green® allows you to enjoy a green lawn without worrying about water usage.
The tight, dense coverage you’ll get with a Village Green® lawn will stop weeds from intruding and eliminate the need to use chemical sprays.
That’s why you’ll find it growing at high profile public spaces, resorts and villas across the Mediterranean.
Village Green doesn’t produce seed which means no ugly seed heads or risk of spreading into garden beds. It also doesn’t produce pollen, which is great for guests with allergies.
Beautiful winter colour
Village Green® is a proven performer across most soil types and climatic conditions (best in Mediterranean climates) and thrives in full sun or partial shade.
It’s also ‘winter active’, meaning you can plant Village Green® in the colder, wetter months and save water.
Unlike other varieties like Bermuda grass, Village Green®® maintains its wonderful green colour and dense coverage throughout the year.
Pet and party friendly
Another great benefit of this new variety is its ability to withstand regular wear and tear.
Village Green® might look pretty and have a soft touch, but this is a lawn with attitude! It’s tough enough to handle parties, barbeques and events. Even if it is damaged it will repair itself quickly.
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 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.
