Botanix Low-maintenance grass seed

Botanix SKU:18417


  • Contains fast-germinating grasses
  • Requires less mowing, fertilizing and watering
  • Increased resistance to drought and defoliating insects thanks to endophytes
  • Seed mix adapted for Quebec
  • Suitable for semi-shaded areas

Botanix Low-maintenance lawn seed is a CANADA No. 1 lawn mix. It contains fescue, Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass.

This mixture is suitable for Quebec. It contains grass species capable of being colonized by an endophyte; a beneficial fungus that lives naturally inside certain grasses and grows in the stems.

It thus provides greater resistance to defoliating insects and drought.

This type of seed requires less mowing, fertilizing and watering.

This mixture includes:

  • 35% Hard fescue: extreme drought tolerance and good winter resistance, very fine and dense foliage
  • 20% Chewing Fescue: naturally repels insects
  • 17% Kentucky bluegrass (Kentucky): very resistant, it has good regeneration power and tolerates hot climates; coarse foliage that resists trampling
  • 15% Creeping red fescue: fine foliage and undemanding grass; tolerates short and frequent cuts well
  • 13% Perennial ryegrass: robust and resistant, it serves as the basis for several seed mixtures. Installs quickly and resists trampling well
