Grass Seed for Allotment Paths

Allotment is 7 months old

I am straightening the edges of the paths and need to sow grass on the new infills of soil

I am concious that there are different strengths or thickness of grass

What is the name of a good hard wearing grass and dont say "Astro " cos I play on that for hockey !!

Everyone is just trying to be Happy.....So lets help Them.


  • Ryegrass produces a hardwearing lawn.  You can buy a 'patch mix' with ryegrass in which might be suitable for you.

    I would counsel against grass paths.

    They will get muddy.

    You will have to strim them.

    They will get weed infested.

    They will wear out if there is a lot of traffic on them.

    You will be forever trying to get the edges neat.

    But they look nice!

  • Well I put ash paths around some of our raised beds , all well and good for a couple of years with occasional weeding but you still can't stop grass seeds landing on them and germinating so now this year I am actually mowing them at the lowest possible cut because weeding has become untenable!
