Lawn substitutes

Saturday, 24 November 2012

If you don't want to mow a lawn, or have a situation where lawn isn't appropriate, then consider the many groundcover and `matting' plants that are available.

There are varieties that will suit hot sites, like Aceana, and shady spots, eg. Pratia. Some are aromatic when you tread on them, such as thyme and penny royal.

www.NoMow.co.nz  has trays of many species, and can freight anywhere in New Zealand. 

Seleria is a small coastal native species, that has become very useful as a turf substitute, and natural salt is used for any weeds that invade the seleria. The salt kills the weeds but not the seleria.

They will still require irrigation and fertiliser, and weeding. These plants are ideal for small courtyards, Chinese and Japanese style gardens, and as a ground cover for most garden situations.
