JT1 Shade Turf

JT1 Shade Turf

If the health of your turf is an issue in shaded areas, County Shade provides the solution. This medium texture, shade tolerant turf is grown using grass cultivars which flourish in a shaded environment. It is grown for a minimum of 18 months before harvesting. County Shade is suitable for use in municipal gardens, shaded landscapes and lawns, all recreational areas and on golf tees and racecourses. We do recommend regular fungicide treatment and fertiliser application to keep this turf in top condition.

Native to Alpine areas, it is the last grass to fall into dormancy and the first to actively grow in the spring. JS1 has been specifically produced to flourish under the changing climate.
