Abstract/Contents:"Various pure seeds and seed mixtures of Festuca rubra, Festuca ovina, Agrostis tenuis and Poa pratensis were sown, in 1974, on fallow land to test their suitability for landscape management. Three different measures of maintenance (clipping once a year and removing the clipped material; mulching; and plant development left undisturbed) were applied. After a five year experimental period the findings can be summarized as follows: On the unploughed plot, left unsown, there was less Agropyron repens when mulching was applied, whereas the proportion of Festuca rubra had increased. When other measures of maintenance were applied, the proportion of Agropyron repens increased. When pure seeds were sown, the result was a greater proportion of Festuca rubra ssp. commutata and trichophylla, no matter which measures of maintenance had been applied. The proportion of Festuca rubra ssp. rubra remained more or less the same. There was less Poa pratensis, Festuca ovina and Agrostis tenuis, especially when mulching was applied and when the plant development was left undisturbed. The proportions of mixtures I and III had increased, that of mixture II had not. The plot, which had been mowed, showed the best results. The height of the grass was determined mainly by the proportion of Festuca rubra. The plots left untended showed a higher growth than the plots which were well maintained, because of the dead, not fallen blades. The blank spaces in the turf were directly related to the proportions of the species sown. The only exception was Festuca ovina. In spite of the fact that it decreased in proportion when fewer maintenance measures were applied, the turf became denser. Trifolium repens spread instead."
