Newton's specialise in providing lawn seed and advice for home lawners and commercial operators. Arguably, we have the widest range of seed and mixes in the country - certainly enough to satisfy any requirement a customer might have.  Most of our seed is direct from our growers in Canterbury so it's New Zealand seed for New Zealand conditions. The rest is proprietry lines, mainly from the USA (fescues and bentgrass).

All our lawn seed is listed below, if you can't decide what's best for your situation, ring us or send in an email - we're here to help.

Barbeta Regenerating Rye Grass (RPR)
This one’s the latest in breeding. It’s a self repairing rye grass from the states. As it matures it throws out short runners designed to thicken up the whole lawn and by doing so make it more drought tolerant than normal rye grass and much tighter. Don’t worry – its not invasive. Hardwearing and perfect for the home lawn. Mainly sun. CLICK HERE to buy

.

Tall Fescue
American tall fescue out of Oregon. Fine leaf variety which has a slightly rhizominous habit so it repairs itself quite well. Tough and drought tolerant because of its very deep root system. Full sun or full shade - it doesn’t care. Allow 12 days for germination but sow heavy to start with because its sulky when starting out. Show lawn.

Gro-quick
Grows fast – up in 5 days. Ideal and well priced for the lifestyle block where you want something that looks better than a paddock but not something that needs loving care. Looks good if kept cut which is required more often than other varieties as it loves growing all the time. Recovers well after a big dry.

.

Made for Shade
A blend of American fine fescues; chewings and creeping red. Very fine leaf almost needle like appearance, dark green and quite distinctive. It’s a show lawn that does sun or shade. Remember to fertilise it regularly when planted under trees and sow it heavy. Slow germinator.

Just Grass
Rye Clover is its other name. A blend of pasture rye grasses with 10% white clover. It’s cheap but tough. Suits the berm or maybe the rental property where it knows it won’t get a lot of love. It’s the one where something green will do the job nicely – that’s why it’s called “just grass”. It's other life is over sowing damaged pasture.

Newton Premium Lawn Seed Range

The King Premium
75% Tall Fescue, 20% chewings and creeping red fescue and 5% NZ browntop. It’s a real beauty in med-dark green. The Creeping Red in it will thicken the whole thing up – create a carpet the weeds will struggle to get through. The brown top is there for persistence and good all round balance. Leave the King a little longer in summer – maybe some water crystals, and it will look good right through the hot season when not much else does. It’s a show lawn and will take a bit of care to get it going but once established you’ll be very, very pleased. One of our most popular.


Supalawn Premium
80% Turf Rye Grass, 20% chewings and creeping red fescue, 5% brown top. It’s just so easy to grow and looks great with not much work. It’s a very popular mix as it likes kids and pets and is quite easy to manage. Will draw favourable comments from visitors. Just a note here though – predominately turf rye mixes are easy to establish but need a bit of work to keep them looking good. They are not as tough as the fescues or brown top so don’t neglect your new lawn or it will loose its healthy look and allow the weeds in to spoil things. CLICK HERE to buy.
 
The Vintage Blend Premium
100% Turf Rye grass. A straight champion blend of 3 quality dwarf turf rye grasses that will establish in a week. Medium-dark green. Also works very well as an oversowing seed for repairs to existing lawns. Looks like the fairway at the golf course. Lovely stuff and almost instant gratification if you’re in a hurry to get something going.

Gro-Quick Premium
75% Medium bladed rye grass 20% fescue blends, 5% brown top. Talk about wanting grass fast – this is it. Most of the mix will be up like hairs on a cats back. Will continue to thicken up for the first few weeks. It is the fastest grower but be advised – it does so all the time. Looks the best when kept trimmed. It’s hard wearing, light green in colour and very popular. CLICK HERE to buy.
 
Made for Shade
100% fine fescues. Fine leaf so plant plenty to get it nice and thick. If the shade comes from trees don’t forget to fertilise about every 2-3 months. It’s not the lack of the sun that kills the lawn but the lack of food (and watch out for compaction in the soil while you’re on the job). Doesn’t care about the sun.
