Wildflower Turf

It’s no secret that many of our pollinating insects are in decline with figures suggesting a loss, over the past 40 years, of around 70% of our native Bee population alone. Research suggests there is no single reason for the decline in numbers although a key factor, as with many other wildlife species, is simply loss of habitat.

Installing our Wildflower Turf creates an attractive floral display and immediately increases the food source for a wide range of pollinating insects, birds, amphibians and mammals.

Every installation of our Flora Turf products, no matter how large or small, contributes towards a healthier and more sustainable environment.

Why choose Wildflower Turf?

Our Wildflower Turf contains a bespoke mixture of carefully selected native and naturalised plant species. These plants are already established in the turf and you can expect your newly created wildflower area to mature in a few short weeks.

1

Grown on moisture retentivedegradablerecycled fibre matting which acts as a barrier to suppress any indigenous and problematic broad leaved weeds and grasses. These would very quickly establish and outcompete the more desirable species in most seeded wildflower applications.

2

The broad and diverse range of both annual and perennial wildflower species sown should ensure compatibility with most UK and Northern European environmental and climatic conditions.

Benefits of Wildflower Turf

Flora Pollinator

Sown as a 100% wildflower mixture of both annual and perennial species, our Flora Pollinator is the ideal choice when the addition of grasses is not required.

1

Low percentage of traditional annual species in the mix gives early visual interest and will slowly reduce as the more sustainable perennial species establish themselves.

2

The seed mix is carefully selected to give structural and visual interest throughout the flowering season.

3

Ideal for use in private gardens and estates, parks and public amenity areas.
