The landscape range now includes 11 seed mixes including five that are new for 2016: The Low Grower, The Roadside Verge, The Wildlife Ranger, The Airport Guardian and The Water Saver.

The Roadside Verge is the official Department of Transport mixture, offering stability on steep slopes, banks, verges and bridge works and tolerating a wide range of soils. All Green Velvet landscaping products are available in 12.5kg and 20kg pouches.

A selection of Green Velvet wildflower mixes has also been brought into the range.

Paul Warner, Barenbrug UK marketing manager, said: "After a thorough analysis of our existing landscape and wildflower mixtures we decided to reinvigorate the whole range and move it separately under the Green Velvet umbrella.

"Bringing Green Velvet to landscapers was the logical progression for the brand. We now offer a one-stop-landscaping-shop to suit all situations. This leaves the BAR Range focussed on doing what it does best—sports grass seed—while allowing Green Velvet to become our official landscaping range.

"I firmly believe the consolidation of our landscaping range will be a powerful aid in helping distributors target the landscaping sector, while offering professional landscapers superior products they can rely on, no matter what the brief or project."
