It requires almost no special attention or care, the only thing is that in late spring and throughout the summer it will have to be cut often, as well as periodically get rid of small weeds.
Meadow lawn. Combines different herbs. From it you will get a magnificent meadow or lawn, you can also dilute it with some wildflowers.
The Moorish lawn is perhaps the most colorful of all. They combine mixtures of different plants such as, for example, cornflowers, poppies, alissums, nasturtiums and others. A Moorish lawn will look great under the shade of a large tree. It does not require close attention. It will be possible to cut it only when all the flowers have already faded and spread their seeds in order to please the owners next time.
The sports lawn is the most resistant to trampling. It is suitable for any kind of sport. Requires attention and haircuts, at least once every seven days.
Special lawn. It is usually placed in slopes in order to strengthen any slope from dangerous landslides. The most functional of all the above lawns.
