The modern range of lawn mixtures is very diverse. This applies to both foreign manufacturers and domestic. However, the composition of such mixtures is almost the same. The only difference is what percentage of these seeds and their quality. Depending on these parameters, the price is formed.
When choosing a mixture, be guided so that the future type of lawn can be broken. These types are lawn or meadow. They are perfect for playing sports or as a neat look. In order not to make a mistake in the quality of the purchased mixture, you should take the goods of a well-known manufacturer. As a rule, the products of well-known manufacturers are often of high quality.
When choosing imported seeds, it is necessary to consider where they came from. The fact is that the most suitable seeds will be from the producer who is in the same climatic conditions as you. Accordingly, for residents of the middle zone, you can take a mixture from Canada. They are most resistant to frost and excess meltwater. If your site is in the southern zone, it is recommended to take seeds from Western European producers.
When buying a mixture, pay attention to the composition. If you need the grass to swell as quickly as possible, then ryegrass should prevail in the composition. But it is worth considering that ryegrass suppresses other cereals and after a few years bald spots on the lawn will appear. To increase the life expectancy of the lawn, you need to buy a mixture with a predominance of bluegrass. If you do not want to cut the lawn very often, then the composition should be dominated by fescue turf. It is quite dense and elastic, tolerates a haircut. For a soil that is not very good, a mixture with a high content of thin woodland is ideal for you. This grass is quite cold-resistant and tolerates drought, but it must be cut often.
