Tillers Cultivated Turf Arena

The arena is widely used in landscaping for its consistency and reliability.

It’s a high-quality general purpose turf used on public parks and green spaces, domestic lawns, business and science parks, and commercial landscaping.

The arena contains the latest varieties of dwarf ryegrasses to give a really tough, hard wearing turf. Gone are the days of the old types of ryegrass, which were coarse and very fast growing.

Today, modern ryegrasses are fine-leaved, slow-growing, and easy to maintain.

Fescue and smooth stalked meadowgrass are included in the mixture to provide the density of sward expected in a high-quality turf.

Seed Mixture The mixture of grasses has been developed to promote good year-round aesthetics.

Seed Mixture

  • 30% Dwarf amenity ryegrass. Lolium perenne

  • 20% Smoothstalked meadowgrass. Poa pratensis

  • 30% Slender creeping red fescue. Festuca Rubra litoralis

  • 20% Chewings fescue. Festuca Rubra commutata.

Tillers Arena Gold – Ornamental

Arena Bargold is used in both landscaping and sport. Its fine appearance make it ideal for ornamental lawns and croquet lawns, whilst on the golf course Arena Bargold is ideal for tees, fairways, and green surrounds.

Arena Bargold contains the new super-dwarf ryegrass, Bargold. This is a major step forward in grass breeding because Bargold combines, for the first time, the fine appearance of fescues with the hardwearing nature of ryegrass. This means that Arena Bargold can be used where fine turf is required with the knowledge that you’re not going to suffer from wear and disease problems that were associated with the traditional fescue/bent mixtures. So, for ornamental lawns and croquet lawns, it’s difficult to beat Arena Bargold.
