In good conditions blades of grass can usually be seen in under 2 weeks, however if the conditions are unfavourable this may take considerably longer.

When to Use

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

Where to Use

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

How to Use

Best Conditions:
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

How to Sow a New Lawn

1. Prepare the soil by clearing away any debris and weeds

2. Dig over the soil, breaking down any lumps and tread the soil to firm it again. Level with a rake

3. Shake the box to mix up the seeds. Sprinkle in 2 passes at right angles to each other at rate of 30g/sq. m

4. Lightly rake into the surface

How to Thicken an Existing Lawn

1. Remove any weeds. Mow the lawn closely. If the ground is compacted aerate using a garden fork

2. Spread Westland Lawn and Turf Dressing to fill any shallow holes and to level-out the surface

3. Shake the box to mix up the seeds. Sprinkle in 2 passes at right angles to each other at rate of 25g/sq. m

4. Lightly rake into the surface

After Sowing

  • Lightly firm the ground by walking over it or use a roller. This will press the seed into the soil
  • Water thoroughly – using a fine-rosed watering can or sprinkler, taking care not to wash the seeds away
  • Water daily until established and in very hot conditions water late in the day once the sun has gone down. It is better to water thoroughly once rather than several times lightly
  • Mow for the first time when grass is 5-8cm high. Gradually lower the cutting height to about 2.5cm. After 8 weeks we recommend feeding with Aftercut 3 Ultra Green Plus.

 

 

Tips

  • 4-5 days before sowing a new lawn, lightly rake Westland Growmore 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
  • For the best results apply Gro-sure® Lawn Seeding Soil with any Gro-sure® lawn seed
