A guide to grass

8.40am 5th April 2005 - Corporate

There is now a pocket size, full colour book with all the information you need to identify grasses and their related diseases and pests. DLF Trifolium’s new “Guide to Amenity Grasses” combines useful technical information with outstanding photography.
The Guide includes sections on grasses with useful information covering shoot density, germination period and cutting heights as well as distinguishing features and special properties of the particular specie. This section is followed by “Fungal Diseases”, their symptoms, hosts and when they occur and finally a section on “Pests”.
“Grass identification and grass structure contributes to the overall usefulness of this Guide,” explains Miranda Chambers, marketing manager for DLF Trifolium Ltd. “We hope it will be referred to as the ‘grass bible‘ by landscape architects, contractors, groundsmen, technical advisors and students alike.”
Every detail has been carefully considered from the contents, to the size and practical finish of each page, designed to be robust and withstand an outdoor existence. Many of the photographs are courtesy of the Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI) who have contributed their expertise to the technical contents of the Guide.
The Guide to Amenity Grasses costs £5.99 plus postage and packaging and is available from DLF Trifolium. Telephone 01386 791102 or email to place your order. DLF customers can benefit from a free copy for a limited period.
