Abstract/Contents:SUMMARY: "The grass forming a lawn does not only serve as an ornamental turf and for aesthetic purposes but it is also a basic material to prevent erosion. The slopes, gravel pits, quarries and surface-mining areas not representing a good landscape picture, can be covered with a green grass cover. In this respect those grass and clover varieties, which have, besides their effect to form a green cover, also a high "constructional" effect from an engineering-biological point of view are of special importance. The characteristics of the varieties point to the excellent properties of the individual varieties. Depending on the project of the green site, the varieties must be combined in such a way that the composition of well adapted mixtures is the result. The examples of mixtures given are indications of how the plant society can establish, depending on environmental influences, a well-imbedded green cover which will impede erosion." Seven kinds of grasses (Lolium perenne, Poa pratensis, Festuca rubra rubra, Festuca rubra com., Festuca ovina, Agrostis tenuis, and Bromus inermis), six kinds of clover (Trifolium repens, Lotus corniculatus, Medicago lupulina, Onobrychis sativa, Meliotus altissimus, Medicago sativa) and two kinds of herbs (Achillea millefolium, and Sanguisorba minor) are described in terms of their climatic and nutritional needs, as well as the depth that their roots can reach and a rating as to their best use. Four mixtures of these plants and grasses are given as suggestions of what has proved to be the most effective in the past.
