Grass parking sow from seed, variety suggestion please
I have come back to enquire the GW hive mind again!
Instead of paving the parking area, I would like to be more eco conscious and construct a grass parking instead. I have decided to go with grass reinforcement mesh as opposed to grid system because it’s so much cheaper.
The site has had the turf stripped to build a new house. Parking at the front of the house next to quite a busy main road. My plan is to level the front using a compactor, spread a thick layer of sand, then layer of loamy top soil and finally spread seed by hand. Once seeds are established at an inch or so, place the mesh over and let it grow again. I won’t be parking or walking on it till it’s grown. Any advice regarding this planting process is also appreciated.
What type of grass seed is best? 100% perennial rye grass? Or a mix of some type such as 20% strong creeping red fescue with 80% amenity perennial rye grass?
