Tips

  • 4-5 days before sowing a new lawn, lightly rake into the soil
  • When preparing to sow, if the soil is dry water it thoroughly the day before and leave to soak in overnight
  • The top of the soil should be dry with moist soil just below the surface on the day of sowing
  • Store in a cool, dry place and use within the season of purchase

When to Use

Lawn seed may be sown from March to October. Ideally sow during March to May or September to October.

Lawn seed grows best when the soil temperature is consistently around 10—18°C. If conditions stray out of this range, time and rate of germination can be negatively impacted.

Where to Use

Existing lawns – to over-seed
Bare soil – to establish new lawns
Patches -for repairs

How to Use

Preparation

Clear away any debris and remove/kill weeds before sowing.

New Lawn (or Patch Repair)

  • Dig over the soil to a depth of 20-25cm
  • Break down any lumps and firm the soil by treading it down
  • Level out using a rake, creating a flat and even surface
  • Spread over the surface to a 3-4 cm depth and level out.

 

Revitalising Existing Lawn

  • Mow the lawn closely
  • Rake or scarify the area to open up the soil surface
  • Fill any shallow holes with and level out.

Sowing

Tip: In dry conditions, water the soil thoroughly the day before sowing.

  • Shake the box to mix up the seeds
  • Lightly rake to incorporate the seed into the soil
  • Walk over or roll the sown area to press the seed into the soil

Watering

  • Water the area thoroughly using a fine-rose watering can or sprinkler, taking care not to wash the seeds away.
  • In dry conditions, water daily to maintain soil moisture levels until seed germinates and establishes.

Aftercare

  • Keep new lawns well-watered especially in dry conditions.
  • Do not use weed killers or strong fertilisers on new lawns and always read the product label before use

 

Usage Advice

Store in a cool, dry place and use within the season of purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Should I cover the seed?

A. The seed should be sown onto and lightly raked in to the soil surface and no deeper than 1-2cm. A germination sheet (or fleece) can be used to speed up the germination stage but should still be removed upon emergence

Q. When can I use a Weed Feed & Moss Killer?

A. Your lawn must be older than a year before using this type of product

Q. Does this contain annual ryegrass?

A. No we only use perennial ryegrass suitable for turf, as this is much slower growing and finer bladed than annual ryegrass. Ideal for lawns
