Ecological management and thus differentiated

Post  Admin on Wed Jan 09, 2008 3:12 am

The spontaneous flora can be integrated into the grass, here near the sea, on sand (Northern of France) where still some cockchafers survive
This form of management proposes an alternative to the English grass requiring an expensive intensive management and producing a homogeneous and poor grass in cash and in biodiversity; A more ecological management imposes a management known as differentiated;
preserving zone more rarely mowed or mown, possibly moved slightly year on the other, to accommodate a flora and a higher animal biodiversity, and to approach natural ecological balances by copying to some extent the effects of heterogeneous chattering by the herbivores in nature. The spontaneous and indigenous flora is preserved there, while controlling the ligneous family by shearing or the mowing.
This management allows a better protection of the ground, even its restoration, as well as the seed rise on part of the grass (favorable to the adaptation of the grass to possible climate changes or local conditions), and conservation of a greater number of species the herbaceous ones which make it possible for example to better support the very wet dryness or period. Flowerings spread out in time and space offer an aspect more varied. In its pushed version, the grass evolves to the flowered meadow, while keeping if the owner wishes it an aspect of perfect English grass in the routes, which can then be maintained only by means of one small mechanical mower with hand. The time saved with less mowing can be occupied refining management in question. It takes approximately 5 years to pass from a homogeneous grass to a diversified grass evolving to a flowered meadow. The poorer grounds will be naturally recolonized by a greater number of species, which will push less quickly (thus requiring less maintenance), this is why this method promotes the abandonment of the use of manure (except leguminous plants such as clover) and the export of the products of mowings, at least for part of the ground. It is not rare that orchises and other plants locally become rare or having disappeared since from the decades reappear then spontaneously.
This type of management is often associated with architecture known as HQE
Other types
Technical grasses are designed for certain sports (Football, Rugby, Golf).
There are also turf flowered ecological alternative that requires less maintenance, less mowing and no fertilizer for vegetate track tram in the city.
In contrast, there are also synthetic turf, plastic (polypropylene), which is used for certain sports fields.
