I am straightening the edges of the paths and need to sow grass on the new infills of soil
I am concious that there are different strengths or thickness of grass
What is the name of a good hard wearing grass and dont say "Astro " cos I play on that for hockey !!
Ryegrass produces a hardwearing lawn. You can buy a 'patch mix' with ryegrass in which might be suitable for you. http://www.garden4less.co.uk/fothergills-lawn-seed-patch-pack-and-rye.asp?partner=fr
I would counsel against grass paths.
They will get muddy.
You will have to strim them.
They will get weed infested.
They will wear out if there is a lot of traffic on them.
You will be forever trying to get the edges neat.
But they look nice!
Well I put ash paths around some of our raised beds , all well and good for a couple of years with occasional weeding but you still can't stop grass seeds landing on them and germinating so now this year I am actually mowing them at the lowest possible cut because weeding has become untenable!
