Grass Types

Fiddlers Green Blend Grass

Fiddlers Green blend is a blended lawn compromised of seashore Paspalum and Cynodon Dactylon. It is a warm-season grass commonly used for lawns, golf courses, landscaping, parks and recreation areas as it has a high traffic tolerance and is often used in estates that insist on indigenous lawns.

Fiddlers Green is the only high salt-tolerant grass available. It is an excellent choice for environmentally conscious superintendents and homeowners, especially those with water quality issues such as a need to use effluent water for irrigation. Certainly in areas where water shortages occur, where saline conditions are unusually high, or where water reclamation projects are undertaken the blend provides an attractive option for beautiful turf despite these conditions.

It offers both the benefits of a drought tolerant product and a winter green up unmatched by Cynodon Dactylon as a pure strain. Ideal for the well point or borehole saline intensive water.

Has a bottle blue appearance all year round.
