Wildblumenwiese / Wildkräuterrasen / Duftrasen zum Ausrollen

More nature: the wildflower meadow as rolled turf

We have added two rolled turf innovations developed in-house to our assortment: a slow-growing aromatic turf and our Albrecht Dürer turf, the first wildflower meadow for unrolling. They are suitable for private areas and use, as well as for public green areas.

Albrecht Dürer Turf

This turf was presented at GaLaBau 2006 for the first time before a wide audience, where it was a minor sensation. The first wildflower meadow that can be rolled. This was idea originally investigated by experts for the composition of grasses and wildflowers as a contribution of the City of Nuremberg to the German National Garden Show, as Dürer’s “Great Piece of Turf“ [großes Rasenstück], whereby a seed mixture was created.

It showed very quickly that these herb meadows are something very special. Its attractive appearance, durability and ease of care enthralled the trade fair visitors and it truly enriches our assortment. For ecologically-compatible greening measures, attractive meadows or even for easy-to-care-fore, low-traffic public green areas, Dürer’s masterpiece is enjoying a renaissance 500 years after it was created.

This lawn is produced in an ecologically compatible manner without any chemicals, it requires no chemical pesticides, produces only small amounts of swath and requires no watering, except during the growing phase.

Installation Guide

Install it yourself

Ordering turf: Order the turf so that the delivery takes place when you are finished with your soil preparation. Factor in a loss of approximately 5 % from cuttings. Remove the packing film immediately after the turf arrives, lay rolled turf, roll it out and then water. By lifting a section of turf, check whether both the turf and approx. 5 cm of the soil are moist.

Soil preparation before laying: Deeply aerate, finely cultivate, grade and pre-roll the installation surface, then add the base fertilisers with 50 g/m2 Schwab Rollrasendünger® and 50 g/m2 Schwab Bodenstarter®. Then perform a final grading with fertiliser gently worked into the upper soil layers and then roll again. The grade should be firm enough to walk on, which means you do not leave any prints where you walk.

Completely new: Rolled sod in sandwich structure

Immediate care after laying: Freshly laid rolled turf should be kept moist constantly for the first 2 – 3 weeks. By then, sufficient roots will have formed to be able to extract water from the ground. Water daily during dry and hot weather. Only water enough that the turf and 5 cm of the soil are moist, but you can still walk on the turf. With overcast or rainy weather you can reduce the watering accordingly. The first cut should take place 5 – 8 days after laying. You can reduce the watering after growth (after 2 – 4 weeks). That means you should water 1 – 2 times per week with dry, sunny weather and with 15 – 20 litres per m2. You can purchase rain gauges and our water bug for garden watering from our online shop.
