Prevents moss growth  

By creating a dense sward in shady areas, too, Shadow prevents the growth of moss in those places. So your entire lawn will consist of grass, also in shady areas.


Dense sward
The varieties contained in Shadow will create a dense sward, precluding bare patches. This makes the grass mixture very suitable for both lawns and recreational areas.


Very suitable for shady areas

As its name implies, Shadow is very suitable for shady areas. In developing this mixture, the focus was on selecting varieties that grow well even in areas of (dappled) shade. Shadow is not without reason the ideal grass mixture for use in shady areas.


For lawns that can be enjoyed for many years
Shadow can be used for many years, creating lawns that you will be able to enjoy for a very long time.

Good wear tolerance
Besides shade-tolerant varieties, Shadow also contains varieties with good wear tolerance, making it very suitable for use in recreational areas, too. Children will be able to play to their hearts’ content even in shady parts of a Shadow lawn.


Innovation Award winner
Shadow includes the variety Barcampsia. On its introduction, this variety won an Innovation Award for its combination of high shade tolerance, early spring growth, fast germination and the fact that it tolerates severe winters very well.
