E16 - Embankment & ground cover

Steep embankment grass cover

  • Formulated to be our best performing mixture for establishing steep banks
  • Rapid germination from 'nurse crop' annual ryegrass
  • Creeping and deep-rooted grasses for soil stabilisation
  • Very tolerant of harsh conditions
  • Available with white clover for impoverished soils - see e16-c Embankment and Ground Cover

 

 

Designed to give rapid, yet long lasting ground cover on steep embankments and areas of unstable or loose soil. The mixture will give rapid germination due to the inclusion of annual ryegrass which will act as a ‘nurse crop’, giving protection to the other species whilst they establish. The mixture utilises deep rooted and creeping species to stabilise and bind soil.

 

AREAS OF USE

  • Embankments
  • Areas of loose and unstable soils
  • Road verges

 

A high sowing rate is recommended when sowing on steep banks.
