Downton Abbey Lawns in Spain
Backdrop for the popular TV series Downton Abbey is the splendid Highclere Castle.
Highclere Castle is one of England's most beautiful Victorian Castles set amidst 1,000 acres of spectacular parkland. The Carnarvon family has lived at Highclere since 1679, and the current Castle stands on the site of an earlier house, which in turn was built on the foundations of the medieval palace owned by the Bishops of Winchester for some 800 years.
Although the lawns at Downton Abbey would inevitably have several gardeners full time throughout the seasons to keep the lawns at their best. Here in Spain, you can have a green lawn (with or without gardeners), all year round if you choose the right type of grass. So in the Winter time you should select an English type Cool Season Grass suitable for the colder wetter months and plant grass plugs of Mediterranean Warm Season grass for the Hotter drier months of the Summer. With this combination you will achieve a beautiful green lawn across all the seasons.
