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.
4turf™ is a new generation of tetraploid perennial ryegrass varieties, developed to be quick establishing, strong, deeprooting and tolerant to stress. 4turf™ is better able to withstand a range of stressful conditions, such as drought, cold, disease and wear.
The larger seeds contain more reserves for stronger faster establishment. It has a deeper crown and superior rooting to help with drought resistance and recovery. Tetradark has darker color than other 4turf™ varieties and moderate density enabling it to blend better with turf-type tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, diploid perennial ryegrass and fine fescues. TetraDark establishes faster and gives you thick green turf all through the year. It is the perfect part of mix for homes, sports fields or golf courses. Superior for use in repairing damage throughout the year it opens up many opportunities. With 4turf™ you can get results whether you have drought, disease or cold.
