When for whatever reason there is not enough time to plant a lawn by seeding the soil, a good solution is planting sod, strips of lawn approximately 1 m2 with a good root system cut into rectangular shapes. When placed on prepared soil and properly watered, you will have a spectacular meadow within a short period of time..
We have the varieties of grass lawns that best adapt to our islands.
This species is highly adapted to warm climates and can survive drought, making it ideal for areas with minimal maintenance.
It is difficult for this species to take root.
Very powerful and deep root system.
It is resistant to salinity and poor soil. It does not have strict water requirements, it recovers easily and it does not need fertiliser.
It is tolerant to shade and can be walked on.
Just like all C4 species, its colour fades in the winter, when it goes dormant, but this is less noticeable than in the majority of these species and can only be seen under 3-4º C.
Its recommended mowing height is somewhat high, between 5-8 cm..
This is a climbing grass that can reach 40 cm in height and is very commonly used, especially in warm and temperate climates around the world, between 30 ° South and 30 ° North latitude, because of its adaptability to high temperatures and its water savings. It is one of the most evolved species and we can find varieties that primarily revolve around improving the slenderness of the leaves and delaying their entry into dormancy.
It thrives from sea level to 2200 meters. It is fast growing, popular and being used in the fields of sports, quickly recovers when damaged..
It forms a good turf density with medium leaf texture, between 3 and 13 mm wide.
Highly adapted to difficult conditions, poor soils, poorly drained, clayey textures.
Tolerates the drought, entering a state of dormancy with the lack of water, even at times of high demand, to maintain an optimal state needs good watering. Very resistant to trampling and activities on it, with low maintenance requirements. Well tolerated both high and low temperatures. Relatively tolerant of salinity and is not demanding in terms of phytosanitary treatments..
