Shade grass is specifically for grass areas that are located in shadier locations. It is the work of the Italian specialists in the industry from Continental siemens, who are among the leaders in the sector.

Ombra is composed of 5 high-quality varieties of grasses from the Zitni family, whose characteristics point to great resistance to living in semi-shaded areas. Even in the shade, however, green areas sown with this grass show the ability to build an even and dense turf with a lasting deep green color and density.

With the shade ryegrass Italian development Ombra grasses both representative parks and public gardens, as well as private yards, courtyards of villas, residences, and guest houses, and what they all have in common is that, for a number of reasons, they all have grass spaces located in shading and other types of ornamental grasses do not grow well there.

Ombra's leaves are fine and soft to the touch, with pleasing color and grass-like softness, yet moderately resistant to trampling and trampling.
