NZLA Perennial Ryegrass seed is a hard-wearing, winter active and drought-tolerant turf. Establishing rapidly from sowing, this turf is capable of being mowed down to 15mm.

This seed variety is an excellent choice for those seeking a beautiful lawn without extensive maintenance requirements. It exhibits winter activity, which reduces the risk of disease during colder months as it continues to thrive while other ryegrass varieties become dormant. Additionally, its green colour closely resembles that of Poa annua (a common grass weed in New Zealand), making it less noticeable compared to darker grass varieties where Poa is easily visible.

NZLA recommends applying Starter Fertiliser at the time of seeding to give your new lawn the essential nutrients it needs. There’s a huge variation in results from those who use Starter Fertiliser and those who skip it. Your lawn will struggle without the correct nutrients to feed it during establishment. Starter Fertiliser can be reapplied after six weeks if you have some left, alternatively you can then switch to NZLA All Seasons.

Sowing rate of 3-5kg/100m2 | Oversowing rate of 2.5-3.5kg/100m2

What herbicides can I use on my Perennial Ryegrass Lawn?

Use NZLA Etho to control some foreign grasses such a Poa and Summer Grass. NZLA Meso to control some broadleaf weeds. Etho and Meso can both be used at seeding as a pre-emergent or as a post emergent once the turf is 4 weeks old and been mowed a couple of times. The best general turf herbicide is Triumph Gold as it controls the most amount of common lawn weeds.
