The cheapest and most successful solution for a Real Grass Lawn in Spain all year round.

Our Types of Lawn Grasses

All our grasses are single species or selected hybrids (not mixtures), and have been selected and home grown by us for the Spanish (Mediterranean) climate. Each grass has its own advantages. All are drought resistant or low watering, low or no mowing, self repair, low fertilising. These grasses are only available direct from us in Benissa.

Our warm season grasses are creeping type (not bunch) grasses, so unlike conventional UK type (cool season) grasses, when you have a damaged area, our grasses will self repair relatively quickly. UK type grasses are mostly bunch type grasses so if you have a bald patch, unless you sow more seed, you will permanently have a bald patch. This is why we sell plugs - they spread sideways. We propagate all our green grass types by stolons (runners) not seed, because in most cases the seed is either sterile, or difficult or very slow to germinate. We specialise in lawn or turf grasses to suit most peoples preferences for a lawn.

Extreme Alicante Alicante
Fine bladed creeping grass. Similar to Fine Dwarf, but much greener. Slow growing, draught tolerant and slightly shade tolerant. The slow growth rate means less mowing and is quite appealing to some people. Forms dense carpet. Tends to turn yellow in alkaline soils, so a soil test is highly recommended. Prefers sandy acidic soil, but tolerates poor soil and low fertilisation, so is ideal if you have an existing lawn and are changing your type of grass. For best results, we have a special fertiliser for this grass. ALL YEAR ROUND GREEN (i.e Does NOT turn brown in winter although prolonged cold periods of less than 2 degrees centigrade will kill this grass)

Prefers slightly acid soils. Our most drought resistant grass.  It has a medium coarse blade and is not suitable for soils with high a pH. Its roots can extend up to 8' deep. Not an aggressive spreader and does not require excessive fertilization. When fertilizer is applied, it should contain iron, especially if the soil pH is 7 or more. Moderate shade tolerance.

grass for shady areas Winter Green (Type "FS")

Grass for shady areas. Under trees, beside hedges and north facing walls. This grass does well in shade and will probably last all year round.
If you want to grow Type "L" successfully in a shady area, consider planting a seed mixture containing other seed varieties along with the type "L" seed.
Type "L" mixed with Type "FS" seeds, for example, will allow for quick establishment as well as shade tolerance.
Combining grass varieties also helps ensure that an entire grassed area isn't devastated by one climactic event or disease.
Keep in mind that type "L" has a tendency to prevent other grass varieties from establishing successfully if it makes up more than 15 to 25 percent of the seed mix.

Warning

All our warm season grasses are drought resistant and by their very nature are capable of surviving, where other grasses do not. This feature makes them intrusive species. Ample protection must be in place for flower borders and other areas that these grasses will inevitably invade. In more Northern or wetter climates, or where grown where invasion into finer manicured lawns, these grasses would be considered as an undesirable invader or indeed a weed. However it is exactly these characteristics that make our grasses desirable for low watering and low maintenance lawns. Indeed, irrigation, over watering or overfeeding can render these grasses a real problem.
