There are lawn seed mixtures specially designed for a dry climate and for spaces without an automated irrigation system, or with low drainage. Coming from such a mixture of seeds with a high degree of purity and germination, the resulting lawn is characterized by well-developed roots and a healthy foliage. It will maintain its green color even in drought conditions.
Drought tolerant grass seeds are the ideal choice for those who want a beautiful lawn without too many headaches. Moreover, they represent the most sustainable solution to save water, energy and time resources.
In addition, such a lawn has a high resistance to pests and diseases, an increased tolerance to the lack of nutrients in the soil and is resistant to traffic. Thus, these seeds can also be successfully used for lawns intended for recreational or sports activities.
Under optimal maintenance conditions, drought tolerant grass seeds have a very high perennity and high quality.
The species of grass in the composition of the lawn that gives it the quality of being drought tolerant is Festuca Arundinaceea. So, when you buy lawn seeds that you want to be resistant to sun and drought, check their composition so that the content of Festuca Arundinaceea is as high as possible, usually between 40 – 60%. The other species in the composition can be varieties of Lolium and Poa.
