Step 2: Sowing the Seed

  • Too little seed means your lawn will be slower to establish or may have weeds
  • Too much seed leaves your lawn prone to disease

Step 3: Caring For a New Lawn

  • The grass should appear after 7-21 days
  • Once it appears make sure to keep the lawn watered using a fine water setting
  • Do not cut the lawn until it reaches a height of 8cm (3")
  • Gradually reduce blade's height until it is reduced to 2.5cm (1")
