The Green Velvet range includes six premium amenity grass seed mixtures, which Barenbrug claims have the highest percentage of high quality grass seed of any product on the market.

The mixtures are created using similar techniques to those used to develop products for professional groundskeepers.

Barenbrug specialises in grass seed breeding, production and marketing to the agricultural and amenity markets.

The six mixtures have been developed to fulfil different requirements, and include ‘The All-Rounder’, designed to create a multi-purpose everyday lawn, ‘The Action Hero’, a mixture containing tough wearing grasses, ‘The Perfectionist’, a fine and luxury traditional lawn grass mixture and ‘The Shady One’, designed for shady places.

Also in the range are ‘The Emergency Life Saver’, a mixture for year-round repair which is the same as a product used in professional sports stadiums, and ‘The Easy Fixer’, which combines grass seed with coir compost and naturally occurring fertiliser for quick patch repair.

All the mixtures are available in a range of sizes, including 15sqm cartons and 50sqm pouches.
