Green Earth label - for sustainable maintenance

Barenbrug’s aim, besides being a pioneer in improving grasses, is for its developments to contribute towards a Green Earth on which future generations will also be able to enjoy sports and other forms of recreation. This is why the company introduced its Green Earth label, a quality mark that helps managers of public green spaces use and manage grass in a more sustainable way by making less use of water, fertilisers and pesticides and mowing the grass less often.
