Why Use

Gro-Sure Smart Seed is a blend of unique hard wearing lawn seed varieties that is ideal for over-seeding worn grass or filling in bare patches,

Seeds are treated with Aqua Gel technology for improved germination. Aqua Gel can absorb 400 x its weight in water, and slowly releases it back to the seeds, when the seeds require it to germinate. Aqua Gel is also an excellent bird deterrent and contains plant hormones to stimulate growth.

What to Expect

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. However, for best results, sow lawn seed in the spring from March to May, and in the early autumn from mid September through to mid October.

 

How to Use

Best Conditions: Lawn seed grows best when the soil temperature is consistently around 10°—18°C. Fast Start begins to germinate at 7° C. If conditions stray out of this range, time and rate of germination can be negatively impacted

Preparation

Clear away any debris and remove weeds before sowing

Sowing

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

1. Shake the box to mix up the seeds.

2. Using the built-in side applicator, apply the seed at the following rate:

  • New Lawn (or Patch Repair): 40g/m2
  • Revitalising Existing Lawn: 30g/m2

3. Lightly rake to incorporate the seed into the soil surface

4. 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.

Aftercare

1. First cut at 5-8cm (2-3”) high

2. Gradually lower the cutting height to about 2.5cm (1 inch). Do not remove more than 1/3 of the grass leaf at any one time

3. Feed your lawn after at least 2 cuts. Our recommended lawn feeds are: Westland SafeLawn, Aftercut Ultra Green, Aftercut Lawn Thickener

  • 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

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Should I cover the seed?

A. The seed should be sown and lightly raked in to the soil surface and no deeper than 1-2cm. A germination sheet 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 products like these.

Q. Is it okay to store unused seed for next year?

A. It is always best to use seed in the season of purchase. Seed that has been stored in the box for a long time will have less vigour and will not germinate as well.
