Less water and fertiliser
One of Village Green’s great benefits is that it uses less water and nutrients than most other lawn varieties.
Even in our increasingly drier climate, Village Green allows you to enjoy a green lawn without worrying about water usage.
No chemicals needed
Village Green’s tight, dense coverage stops weeds from intruding and eliminates the need for 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 people with allergies.
Green in winter
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.
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 all kinds of activities, like dogs, parties and barbeques.
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.
