JS1 Shady Grass Seed

JS1 Shady Grass Seed

JS1 Shady – Formulated for adaptation to areas of lower light intensity and the associated stress problems of dry, compacted soils and lower nutrient availability. Recent research has demonstrated that Rough stalked meadow grass copes well with cold and shade as a result making it suited to shaded areas. Ideal for gardens which are in shade for the majority of the day or for areas that are shaded. Building shadows or beneath trees are also suitable areas to plant JS1. If you shaded areas are very dark or get little to no light then our JS16 Supershade would be better suited.

JS1 Shady Grass Seed  – We’ve formulated this grass seed mix, available to buy online, specially to provide lawn covering for areas of lower light intensity with the associated stress factors of dry, compacted soils and lower nutrient availability. The inclusion of rough stalked meadow grass, which copes well with cold and shade, in the predominantly fescue mix makes this formulation ideal under tree margins or in building shadows. The Shady mix is, however, just as content under full sun.
