Creeping Bentgrass (Agrostis palustris) – Dominator Blend, Tyee, 007, A1 and A4 turf / lawn grass seeds – Used mainly for golf course greens throughout the world!
This is a desirable grass for golf course tees, fairways and greens.
Bentgrass is used in turf applications for its numerous advantages: it can be mowed to a very short length without damage, it can handle a great amount of foot traffic, it has a shallow root system that is thick and dense allowing it to be seeded and grow rather easily, and it has a pleasing, deep green appearance. The name “bent” refers to the shallow roots, which bend just below the surface of the soil to propagate laterally.
Creeping Bent aggressively produces horizontal stems, called stolons, that run along the soil’s surface. These allow Creeping Bent to form dense stands under conducive conditions and outcompete bunch-type grass and broadleaf weeds. As such, if infested in a home lawn, it can become a troublesome weed problem. The leaves of the bentgrass are long and slender.
Sowing Rate: 10g per sq. metre.
