The Science is in the Seed. Growing lush, green turf with the “wrong” seed is like growing an apple tree from pumpkin seed – no amount of effort will give you the desired result. Earth Carpet® brings a revolutionary approach from years cultivating the right seeds for the right conditions.

Adaptations and Use
SR 5130 is an excellent component for many turf grass mixes with perennial
ryegrass, other fine fescues, Kentucky bluegrasses and bentgrasses. Under
medium and high maintenance conditions SR 5130 forms a fine, dense,
low-growing turf that tolerates close mowing. Its lower growth form and stress tolerance makes it an appropriate low maintenance choice.
