DISCOVER THE BENEFITS OF SEDUM TURF
Pre-grown and as easy to install as landscape turf, this product can also be cut into pieces for in-between rocks and other garden applications. Urban Sedum Turf is grown with soil on a coconut fibre mat for ease of handling and installation.
Many Sedums will flower from late spring through fall in a succession of different colours. Sedum flowers attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinating insects. The dried stems are often used by birds for nest building material.
