A versatile perennial grass cover that was specifically formulated for use in orchards and vineyards, though also a good choice for your 'back forty.' This mix establishes rapidly, but grows low and slow, requiring just a few mowings per year depending on purpose.
Companion has been sown on literally thousands of acres- from pathways and roadsides to orchards, vineyards and Christmas tree farms - proving itself vigorously competitive with perennial weeds such as dandelions, Canada thistle, field bindweed and annual weeds.
Mix Includes: Low-growing Perennial Ryegrass, Chewings Fescue
Features & Benefits: widely adaptable, slow growing, wear tolerant, shade tolerant, cold tolerant, quick establishment, disease resistant, erosion control
Application Rate: 150-200 lbs per acre, rough seed*
7 - 10 lbs per 1000 sq ft for home orchards
* The application rate for Companion varies depending on use and purpose. Rough seed applications for cover crops or for planting "the back forty" require less seed than a home lawn where a dense stand of grass is desired.
