Crested Hairgrass

On the golf course this provides an environmentally sustainable solution. This low  maintenance turf has a fine appearance, it requires reduced irrigation, fertiliser and fungicide inputs and has a greatly reduced mowing regime. With the added benefit of
mowing short as low as 5mm or left unmown up to 600mm. This adaptable turf is ideally suited to many areas on the golf course which include greens, surrounds and fairways. Bunker surrounds which are exposed to draught, sand and difficult banks where frequent mowing is a challenge, will also be good choices to place this grade.


Low fertiliser inputs are required due to excellent disease resistance to red thread,  fusarium and dollar spot. It can be treated extensively with only one to two cuts per year or intensively as a low input fine grass with a greatly reduced mowing regime.
