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-rose watering can or sprinkler. Take 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
