Lawn Sowing - Advice

Step 1: Preparation

Before sowing the seed it is important to prepare the soil

  • Dig the soil to a depth of 15cm
  • Roughly level soil with a rake and allow to settle for a week if possible
  • Rake to the side to remove new weeds and create a fine seed bed
  • Firm the soil by treading the site evenly
  • Then rake the soil again

Step 2: Sowing the Seed

  • Sow April to mid October on a calm & dry day
  • Sowing rate of 35g (a good hand full) per m2
  • Too little seed means your lawn will be slower to establish or may have weeds
  • Too much seed leaves your lawn prone to disease
  • Scatter seed evenly - first moving left to right and then up and down
  • Note: you could use a Broadcast spreader to do this job
  • Lightly work the soil from left to right and back and forth to bury seeds to roughly 0.5cm

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")

Great Spreader. Easy to put together and it holds a good amount of seed. It spreads evenly as you walk. Sturdy model and will last.

Product works really well. Arrived prompted as described.
Assembly instructions weren't very helpful
excellent product
Great service, all products are good quality and arrived on time
Assembly instructions are not the best. Product itself seems fine.
It's arrived on time. Assembled easily and looks very good.
Not used yet but I'm confident.
Fantastic, delighted with this product. Five star service. Will be buying from the garden shop again.
This is a great product. Works really well and is great value. Need to look at the online build demo as graphics on instructions leaflet are not the clearest. As usual really pleased with the garden shop. Fast delivery too.
Arrived on time.Good value.
