Selected News Story

In today’s highly competitive market place, it is becoming increasingly important that buyers are aware of quality and value for money. The Masterline Landscape range from DLF Trifolium has been produced with these important principles in mind. Cultivars are selected which will not only establish quickly and have good wear tolerance, but are also naturally low growing with high levels of disease resistance to ensure that future maintenance costs are kept to the minimum.

The Masterline range has specially formulated mixtures to cater for every landscape need like caravan parks, coastal sites, embankments, road verges, paddocks, airports and landscaping in general whether the requirement be for dry soils, low maintenance or shaded areas.

The introduction and benefits of Tetraploid ryegrasses into the Masterline range, via the 4Turf varieties, has been significant. The result means deeper rooting and stronger plants with extra stress tolerance, better establishment due to larger seeds (also at lower temperatures) and improved resistance to Fusarium and Red Thread diseases.

There is even a small leaved white clover mixture called Microclover that grows short and even in a mixture with grass. The use of Microclover mixtures can reduce C02 production by 35%. It produces a fine, dense appearance and gives the desired impression of a “grass lawn” rather than a clover lawn. Microclover has proven to be more drought tolerant compared to grass only turf.

Turf with Microclover stays green during dry summers. At the same time savings on Nitrogen can be made as the Microclover supplies Nitrogen to the lawn. This has the effect of the grass staying green and healthy due to an optimal supply of Nitrogen available throughout the growing period. The greening effect of Microclover is very high.

In order to meet the increasing demand for conservation mixtures DLF have formulated 13 Wild Flora seed mixtures, all guaranteed to be UK native and each designed to recreate a particular habitat whilst brightening up the landscape. All seed mixtures have also been awarded the ‘RHS Perfect for Pollinators’ mark given to plants or mixtures that support pollinating insects; bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others.
