Top quality ensured by a the climate of the Pannonian Basin
The plots of 300 Hectares in Austria and Slovakia on which our lawns are cultivated, are part of what is geographically know as the Pannonian Basin. It is the exceptional climate of this area which serves as the founding element in regards to the high quality of our turf. At the same time, it is the consideration and care of our employees, as well as the rigid requirements underlining our cultivating process which ultimately solidify the success of our enterprise. Consequently, sporting turf is bred for 2 years and regular turf for 18 months before any of them can be released for sale.
The fluctuation of temperature within the Pannonian Basin, ranges from – 30 C up to +40 C. Our specially selected grasses are well adapted to this climate and can hence be put to use in a myriad of regions, ranging from Austria over Russia across to Portugal.
