Sports Turf Perennial Ryegrass Seed

  1. Lawn
  2. Oversowing
  3. Sporting Field

McKays Sports Turf Perennial Ryegrass establishes rapidly from sowing, enabling this seed to be brought into play sooner without comprising turf grass performance. It also provides naturally vigorous growth year round and delayed onset of browning in summer. McKays Sports Turf Perennial Ryegrass is ideally suited to winter sports grounds, golf tees, golf fairways and lawns receiving heavy wear, especially in the winter. Its attractive glossy mid-green colour coupled with active year round growth makes it visually appealing. Perennial Ryegrass is also ideal for over-sowing warm season grasses such as Couch, Kikuyu, Buffalo and Zoysia to provide year round lush green lawn.
