Johnsons J Rye Green Grass Seed

Johnsons J Rye Green grass seed features a high proportion of Perennial Rye-grass to increase its ability to tolerate heavy wear and to establish rapidly. The rhizomatous slender creeping red fescue and browntop bents reproduce vegetatively, enabling them to spread through the Perennial Rye-grass, increasing sward density and recovery speed following damage. The mix produces a sward with an exceptionally fine leaf and high wear tolerance under close mowing conditions.
