WHY USE NATIVE GRASSES?
- FERTILIZER REQUIREMENTS REDUCED
Unlike exotic grasses that have high fertilizer requirements, native grasses have adapted over many thousands of years to suit Australias nutrient deficient soils.
- IRRIGATION REQUIREMENTS REDUCED
Many of our native grasses have a higher tolerance to moisture stress than exotic grasses,and therefore can withstand periods of drought without the need for irrigation.
- MOWING REDUCED
Native grasses can be mown to create a lawn or left to create a natural effect.
- INSECTICIDE REQUIREMENTS REDUCED
Native grasses do not attract insect infestations as exotic grasses can do.
- COMMERCIAL AVAILABILITY
As a result of research and development into seed collection, cleaning and propagation of native grass seed in recent years, many native grasses are now available on a commercial basis.
- THERE IS A NATIVE GRASS SUITABLE FOR ALMOST ANY AREA WHERE EXOTIC GRASSES ARE CURRENTLY BEING USED!
