Species Rich Wildflower
Meadowmat® Species Rich is perfect for creating an informal lawn that is both pretty and pollinator-friendly.
A lawn created with Meadowmat® Species Rich Lawn Turf will be hardwearing, incredibly easy to care for and a real asset to biodiversity.
We’ve blended 12 species of slow-growing grasses with 23 types of colourful pollinator-friendly native perennial plants. The result is a multi-coloured carpet of plants just right for relaxing or playing on.
Meadowmat® Species Rich wildflower turf only needs mowing every other week. But it won’t grow too much more than ankle height. So, it’s specially designed for a relaxed maintenance regime so you can happily leave it while you take a holiday. Or, if you work in an organisation where landscape maintenance budgets are tight – think how much money you could save by mowing less often!
The specially selected grasses ensure full coverage all year round – even in wintertime when the flowering plants are asleep. As for hot dry summers, Meadowmat® Species Rich will keep its colour for longer than a standard grass lawn and will recover from drought much more quickly.
Install Meadowmat® Species Rich just like standard lawn turf. It needs to be laid onto prepared soil. Unlike most types of wildflower turf, Species Rich can tolerate slightly more nutrient-rich soils. Then, please keep your new lawn watered until the roots are well established.

If you have a square or rectangular area, calculating the amount of product needed is simply a case of measuring the width and the length and enter these values into the product page calculator.
Whether you measure in feet, yards or metres, you can use the product page calculator to do the calculation for you. Each product page calculator is configured for the selected product. It will be indicated if the calculation includes our recommended percentage increase to allow for cuts, shaping and wastage. The calculator will also round up to the minimum order quantity for the selected product so pay particular attention to topsoil and loose products where these are available as small bags, large bags and loose loads.
Of course, not all areas are that easy to measure. The design of your garden may result in an irregular bed, lawn or area. If the shape is relatively simple and made up of separate squares or rectangles, you can measure it by breaking it up as shown in the diagram below.
Diagram illustrating how to measure an area made up of separate squares or rectangles:
If your area is more complicated than that, use a grided paper such as graph paper to help you measure the area. Measure the width and the length of your garden at various points and plot the shape of your area to scale on the grid. Count the number of whole squares your area fills. Then visually piece together the rest from partially filled counting wholes as you go until you have accounted for the complete edge. Then add the 2 figures together. If in doubt, it is always best to round your estimate up rather than down.

To use a meter squared area with our calculator, simply divide the square meter value by 2 and enter the result as the width and the length. Simple!

How soon after laying turf should I mow my lawn?
You can mow your lawn as soon as five days after laying turf if this can be done without disturbing the rooting process. Most people leave the grass to get too long before mowing.
How long after delivery can I leave my turf rolled up before laying?
Turf must be rolled out within 24 hours in the Autumn/Winter and immediately in Spring/Summer.
How much soil do I need to lay my turf onto?
We recommend a minimum depth of 100mm (4"), ideally 150mm (6") of good quality topsoil. It is important to dig over or rotovate the soil to break up compaction as a well prepared soil will encourage deep, rapid rooting of your new turf.
How do I calculate the amount of turf required for a circular lawn?
To calculate the area of a circular lawn, measure the diameter of the lawn and then divide by 2 to find the radius. Multiply the radius by itself and the multiply this by 3.14. Eg if the lawn has a diameter of 10m, the radius is 5. (5 x 5 x 3.14 = 78.5m²) We recommend you add 5% for shaping and wastage.
