Paddock Grass Mix for grazing horses and hay

Our Horse Max Equine Grass Mix is designed for both reseeding and over-seeding in horse paddocks. It contains a mix of Perennial Ryegrass species, with different growth and maturity characteristics, plus Creeping Red Fescue and Timothy. It is suitable for general grazing and for an occasional hay cut.

Ryegrass benefits from high levels of fertility and can produce large quantities of highly palatable forage. This may be inappropriate for your situation so contact Ian Gould at Oakbank for advice on your project.

Grass Margin Mixtures

Our range of seed mixtures for grass margins caters for all the basic requirements that farmers and / or game keepers may have. We can provide a tall tussocky margin for nesting, or a fine grass marin with low productivity, that will produce less material for cutting and allow wild flowers to develop within the sward. We are always pleased to discuss your requirements and suggest the best products and management plans, plus we can make bespoke mixtures for your site if necessary.

4 - 6 Metre Margin
