Choosing Lawn Seed
Creating a new lawn from seed is actually very easy. The first thing you need to consider is the intended purpose of the new lawn. What you actually mean to use the lawn for will dictate the type of grass seed that will best cater for those needs.
Fortunately, Westland makes this easy, providing you with a choice of 6 clearly defined grass seed types to suit your needs. By choosing the right seed for your needs you can tailor your lawn to suit your lifestyle:
Premium Lawn Seed
For a superior lawn that needs to look, feel and be the very best quality, Surestart Finest Lawn Seed is the perfect choice. It contains the optimum blend of fine lawn seed, including a variety of fine leaved fescue grasses. The resulting lawn has a rich and fine sward that will tolerate regular and close mowing. The mixture has been selected to create an excellent colour throughout the seasons.
Multi-Purpose Lawn Seed
For the lawn that needs to combine good looks with durability choose Surestart Multi-Purpose Lawn Seed. It successfully combines a range of high quality grass seeds which include dwarf perennial ryegrass and fescue species, to create a lawn that is lovely to look at but able to withstand the ravages of overactive youngsters and excitable pets and people.
