Turf Varieties and Quality

Duration: 1.5 hours

Back in the 15th and 16th Century England, a lawn was often a mix of grasses and flowers such as clover, thymes, chamomile providing a green low growing surface and also a place for bees to happily collect their pollen and move to other areas of gardens and orchards for pollinating. Turf based lawns date back many hundreds of years. In times past they were an indicator of a person’s wealth and status, as only the wealthy could afford to maintain scythe mown grass; in most cases, animals were used to keep the grass down.
